olive + leopard

Brrr! It got chilly down here on the shore. So chilly, that we decided to go outlet shopping today rather than shiver on the beach. I got a few things for great prices: a pair of sunny yellow shorts at J.Crew Factory and two tees at Loft Outlet. Stay tuned for details on those 🙂

As for my outfit for the outlet excursion, I put together a combination I recently saw on Ginny’s blog: olive + leopard. And hey, since I put on lip gloss for the occasion, I decided to take a few outfit photos.




The beautiful thing about leopard is that it makes wearing brown and black together (gasp!) so easy. Although I used to be one of those girls who couldn’t stand to mix the two neutrals, I now think that black + cognac can be quite pretty.



Here’s a closer look at the olive + leopard combination. A new favorite!



And since I’ve never worn this top on the blog before, here’s a photo of the ensemble sans jacket. I bought for just $15 via Poshmark* a few weeks ago.



olive military jacket {Old Navy}, $20 (giftcard)

leopard button-up {Old Navy via Poshmark*}, $15 similar

black straight jeans {Loft Outlet}, $24

black patent leather wedges {CL by Laundry via DSW}, $35

What do you like to wear with leopard print?

 *If you sign up for Poshmark using code “BUJGC” we both get $5 credit!
