Leopard Jeans

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Blouse: H&M ($15)
Joe's Leopard Jeans: Ross ($30!)
Pumps: Kohls
Vintage Chanel
Bracelets: Target, c/o Oia Jules

It’s been gloomy lately, so I decided it was a leopard print kind of day. 
I found these jeans last week while shopping in the city. I was checking out the clearance rack, when this beautiful print caught my eyes. What I especially like about these Joe’s jeans is that not only are they beyond comfortable, but they are a darker leopard print, which I don’t usually see. I decided to keep the rest of the outfit simple; I added a white blouse and black pumps, so neither would compete with the leopard. These black pumps are such a staple-they match with everything! The one problem is they are suede, so I cant wear them in the rain. After browsing a few shoe shops I found this pair that is perfect for any type of weather.
Maybe I’ll find this pair under the Christmas tree J

DIY Sequined Scarf

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Sweater: H&M ($5)
Joes Moto Jeans: Plato's Closet
DVF Booties: Plato's Closet ($30)
DIY Infinity Scarf

I thought this outfit needed a little sparkly flair, so I quickly made this sequined infinity scarf out of a yard of fabric I had purchased for DIYs. I laid the fabric long ways and knotted both ends together. Later in the day, I sewed it together because I liked it so much. This sweater is another black friday find. It was $10 but I got money off from my scratch card so it was only $5. It's so soft and cozy-yet another perfect casual item that I will be using as a staple this winter.
