One thing I love about this time of year is the desire I have to make everything in my wardrobe just a little more cozy. It’s early enough in the season that I’m still thrilled to layer with cardigans, jackets, and scarves, and I don’t yet look at my sweaters with disdain because I’m just. So. Sick. Of them. I know that day is coming but for now I’ll enjoy my cozy layers.
Today I’m layering up this leopard blouse that has become a staple in my work wardrobe. It’s a no-brainer with a blazer and a pencil skirt on days I want to look polished and professional. However, with some cozy layers like a moto jacket and a long cardigan, this leopard blouse can also work for a casual Friday at work or errand running on the weekend.
For work, I like to find a balance of casual, professional, and fun. The jeans keep it casual, the jacket and blouse add the professional elements, while the lace-up flats are the perfect dose of fun. Casual Friday, I’m ready for ya.

With a long gray cardigan and my go-to ankle boots, this leopard blouse and jeans combo has just the right amount of comfort for the weekend. It’s a look that can easily take me from a shopping trip to a casual dinner date, both of which I’d love to add to my next weekend agenda.
