{Outfit Inspiration} Kelly Green & Leopard

Fall in Texas is a glorious thing. Like in most places, I suppose. But Texas has a crisis of seasons, and we get the rogue 80-degree November day. Doesn’t bother me though, I view it as a last chance to wear favorite items in my closet, before packing them away until next year. The cut of this top says Summer, but the colors together make it still suitable for Fall. Around here, anyway.

Hi Sugarplum | {Outfit Inspiration} Green & Leopard

I wear leopard like a neutral…pairing it with almost anything that goes with black or brown. As for mixing it with other patterns, I’d probably stick with just stripes or solids. When it gets chillier, I’ll probably add this denim jacket or this cardigan, and swap the shoes out for something like these.

These kinds of ruffly tops are my favorites…so great alone, or peeking out of a jacket or sweater. Maybe the ruffle reminds me of a popped collar, and you know I love that look.

Mr. SP thinks I pull my skirts up too high. But I think it makes my legs look longer. And since when is he Tim Gunn, anyway?!

  6. Love kelly green with pretty much anything. Gorgeous with your leopard skirt here, especially. I would, of course, need to pair it with warm socks, boots, and a heavy coat. Your fall sounds divine…sigh…

  13. Love this look on you! And isn't it HILARIOUS when the man in your life gives his opinion on your outfit!?! Chris was laughing at me the other morning that I was wearing my Hunter boots AGAIN. He started joking that he wants a pair. So, don't be surprised if you see him roll into the office in a polo, khakis, and some Wellies. I know you just lol'd picturing that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  29. Love the green and leopard – it's a favorite combo of mine.

    Do you have a difficult time curling your hair with the angled bob? I certainly have. I think mine is more angled though.

    • The shorter pieces in back are more of a challenge, so I just let them do what they want! ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. I love this too – but I couldn't find the skirt on jcrew factory. Am I missing something? I've been looking for one for a long time! thanks!

    • Hi Aimee — the skirt may have sold out! ๐Ÿ™ Keep checking, bc sometimes they bring the more popular items back!

(Outfit Inspiration} Kelly Green & Leopard

Happy Halloween, friends! After a month of posting Halloween projects and decor, you’d think today’s {Outfit Inspiration} would have some connection to the holiday. But nope, that would make too much sense. Instead I whipped out my favorite color lately….kelly green, and paired it with my favorite accent…leopard! I also threw in a pop of red for good measure.

Shocker alert…I’m not wearing an a-line skirt!

green & leopard

Since Texas is having a temperamental Fall, my jean jacket (circa 1990s, for reals) has become a go-to outfit addition. But I think most every outfit benefits from a fitted denim jacket.

green & leopard

Many of you ask who takes these pictures…it used to be my sweet friend at work, but after she changed jobs, my 11-year-old son took over. Sometimes I have to bribe him, other times he’s way into it and totally cracks me up. I usually get six frames from him before he heads back inside….thus why some of the pics aren’t so great!

green & leopard

I finally jumped on the bubble necklace bandwagon, after finding this one for $16 (thanks for the tip Sheaffer!)!! I jingle like a reindeer when I walk, but it’s totally worth it. No one said cute comes easy.

 green & leopard

What do you think….a scary trick, or a definite treat? Bring on the sugar coma tonight! I hope everyone has a fun and safe evening, and many thoughts and prayers go out to those suffering from Sandy’s wrath that bitch!

  3. Love my jean jacket! It goes with everything. Well, except jean on jean. Don't know many people who can pull that one off.

  4. You look smokin'!! Why don't you wear more pants? And your hair looks really cute all curly.

    xoxo

  5. Another great combo! The thing that makes me most insane about my bubble necklace is how the seatbelt pulls on it in the car. Ubber annoying. I'll need to pull out my old jean jacket after seeing this post.

  6. i LOVE it! I just got my own turquoise bubble necklace-I just need to learn how to style it best! Looking forward to your next outfit ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Love the combo! In fact I think you've just inspired a leopard rug instead of a black and white stripe in my kelly green bathroom…yay!

  10. Green travels is a perfect way of recreation and discovering the nature. Moreover, it helps to discover traditions of other peoples. Green travel to Ukraine provides outstanding opportunities for it. Just see these places http://ukraine-vacation-guide.com/publ/green_travels/13 I bet you will go there during your next vacation! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. I'm a huge fan of leopard print anything. And I'm starting to get into kelly green too. Thinking of making it an accent color in my living room. Would love to incorporate some leopard print too, but I have a feeling my boyfriend won't approve…

    Love the outfit! So pretty. I can't wait until my little man is old enough to take pictures of me.

    I am so glad I am not the only one who still has a jean jacket from the 90's! I need to haul it out of the closet!

  13. Ahh, great minds think alike! I posted about my Kelly Green Pants today! In my post I didn't pair them with leopard, but I have before and I love it! You look adorable!

  21. LOL @ "suffering from Sandy's wrath that bitch". Makes me think of when I was in college & every time we had a football game vs. Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI we'd chant "Ann Arbor is a whore!" I could never pull off leopard but you do it beautifully chica!

  22. LOVE the necklace, LOVE the shirt, LOVE the leopard cuffed over the jacket sleeves, LOVE the red shoes. Thanks for the shout out friend!
