Leopard Love

So, besides the chunky knit sweaters, cozy scarves, and faux fur jackets, there is another fall look that I ALWAYS look forward to wearing each autumn......
LEOPARD! 
Not from head to toe, mind you, but a clutch here, some flats there, a cute cardigan there...you get the drift.  Now, it is crucial that you only have 1 leopard item on at at time.  Otherwise, it's an instant Halloween costume.
I have been a leopard fan for years and years, and I'm so glad that it always comes back.  Each season, leopard is always in, and I'm definitely always a fan. 

Paired w/ solid colors (either neutral or bold), I think leopard is the perfect way to spice up an outfit. And it can always make a look go from day to night.  Just pop a leopard scarf over your tan sweater, or (notice, I didn't say AND) trade out your black flats for a pair of leopard pumps, and dunzo -- you just went from casual to chic in a matter of seconds. 
Still not conviced?

Check out these lovelies.....




how stinking cute are these?!

Do you dare to wear leopard?  Is it too wild for you?
Or are you a leopard-lover like me? 
XOXO
