Leopard Accents 2 Ways

This weekend treated me pretty well. On Friday Jona had his first sleepover at my dad and step-mom's house, and Aaron and I had date night and a morning to sleep in! Of course, I woke up every hour starting at 6am...wouldn't you know it? Oh well, it was still nice to lay in bed and be lazy. More laziness ensued on Saturday, we all spent the afternoon napping. It was a rainy, dreary day; naps were pretty much required.

Instead of remixing a specific item today, I'm remixing one of my favorite prints, leopard. Surprisingly, I wore both of these looks this weekend; it was cool enough for a coat on Friday night yet warm enough for short-sleeves Saturday, go figure. What's your favorite way to style leopard print? 


For Saturday's surprise warm-up, I kept my look comfortable and casual with a graphic tee and boyfriend jeans, and I added a leopard belt for some interest.

For our date night Friday, I dressed up skinny jeans and a navy blue sweater with my favorite sparkly necklace and leopard flats. Those are two of my favorite ways to add a little glam to any look.

  1. Yay for grandparent sleepovers! But the same thing totally ends up happening to us in the morning.


    Love a simple, chic outfit with a pop of leopard - this one is perfect with the shoes + necklace + snazzy coat!

  2. I was pretty much awake all night the first night we had Oliver sleep over at his grandparents! I was also in a hotel that wasn't the best so I guess that might have been part of it too. Love both of these looks, I love leopard accents!

  3. I remember being so excited for my first out of town conference after my daughter was born and thinking about the luxery of a hotel room all to myself. I woke up at 3:45 in the morning and couldn't go back to bed. By day 2 I missed the kids and wanted to go home. Love the leopard and your belt inspired me to get my own.

  4. I know it, I don't think I'll ever be able to sleep in again! But I was never really one to sleep late before.
    And thanks! :)

  5. Isn't that ironic how that works out--we leave them so that we can get some sleep, then we don't end up sleeping, ha! But Jona slept great they said, which I'm glad about! :) (Means they'll do it again probably, yay!) Thanks Beth :)

  6. I'm glad I'm not the only one!! I know, by the time we picked Jona up I was definitely ready to have him back, and that was only 1 day! Thanks Megan, can't wait to see your leopard belt looks too! :)
