Leather and Leopard







Jacket: Ann Taylor, sold out, similar, similar
Top: A.L.C, similar
Shoes: Kurt Geiger
Clutch: Clare V.
Bracelets: Bauble Bar (here, here, similar), C. Wonder (similar)
Necklace: Bauble Bar

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend!  I'm sorry for the lack of posts last week, but I decided it was best for me to take a break and come back fully refreshed for work and the blog.  A week on the beach is exactly what the doctor ordered!  Let's just say that the biggest decision every day was what beach to go to.  I will hopefully have a vacation recap post up soon, but I'm already trying to figure out how I can get back to St. Martin and Anguilla ASAP!

Now, onto the clothes.  Living in Atlanta, I'm pretty lucky that I can wear most of my wardrobe year-round.  When the temperatures dipped (or dipped for Atlanta), I immediately reached for my tights and favorite stripe sweater to winterize my favorite leather skirt.  You know I'm cold when I have tights on!  With the addition of a little leopard, this variation of my fail-proof black and white combo is ready for work (and after work without the jacket).  

On a side (random) note, am I the only one who finds heels less comfortable with tights?  

There are also some great deals Green Monday (I don't know when this became like Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but I will never say no to a deal!)

Nordstrom - 40% off selected items
C. Wonder - 30% off + free shipping
Baublebar - 30% off with INSTAGLAM (ends 12/8)
J. Crew - up to 30% with MERRYMERRY (ends 12/9)
Banana Republic - 40% off with code FESTIVE (ends 12/9)

Have a great day!

  4. Welcome back! And, I actually think heels feel better with tights on. Either way, I love this chic look on you! I can't wait to see your recap!

  5. I love this combination of neutrals with a pop! Your jacket and shoes are gorgeous. And, yes, I agree with you regarding the tights and heels. I find my feet want to come out of my heels when I walk. Glad you had a great vacation. Welcome back!

  16. I hope you enjoyed your holiday! And no you're not the only one who finds heels less comfy with tights. I feel like I need to grip onto my heels with tights as they tend to be slippery! This look is fab, love the jacket, skirt and pop of leopard!

  29. First time visitor, stopping by from Trend Spin link-up and I'm sooo glad I found you! I can tell already I am going to find LOTS of style inspiration from you! I have a really hard time styling skirts and dresses in the winter without them sticking out like a sore thumb. I can't seem to get that cold weather styling down! But I could totally pull it off in the way you styled yours and I would have never thought to style it that way! I love it! Happy to announce you have a brand new follower! I look forward to all of your future inspiration! ;)
