what i wore

Nov 5, 2013

I normally shy away from wearing two animal print pieces together, but I loved pairing my animal print flats with Cee's gorgeous scarf. I think the added stripes helped break it up a little as well, plus hello, who doesn't love a fun pattern mix, right?! It's such a great way to jazz up an otherwise simple & casual outfit. 

Speaking of casual, we've been lazy bums these past few days. Most evenings you'll find us in our PJ's, making homemade pizza and marathoning our favourite shows. Something about this colder weather makes me crave all things cozy. However, tonight we're heading into the city to attend a fun shopping event at FCUK which is being hosted by the beautiful Jen, of the blog Her Waise Choice. Can't wait to catch up with my favourite bloggers, as well as have an excuse to throw on a great pair of heels. I'll be sure to post a few photos on instagram from the night! xo

  7. I love this look! It's not too much leopard at all - I will happily wear leopard flats, belt and scarf with the same outfit, hehe. You are rocking those basics so hard! :3
    Have fun tonight! We're going out too, though only down the pub with friends. But I still wanna wear a dress, haha!

  8. I always love seeing my scarf pop up in your outfit posts, V! I must say, I'm glad to have it back in my closet because you've given me so much styling inspiration over the past few months and I've been pretty much wearing it non-stop since Saturday night :) Thanks to this look, pretty sure I'll be pairing it with a striped tee and khaki jacket next!

  9. Love all of the leopard! Those flats are amazing. xx

  10. I love this perfect fall outfit! I love the fun pops of leopard!

  13. Man, thats exactly how we are when its cold out. I end up walking around in my sweatpants the minute i get home. It just makes me so lazy! But I am digging this 2 animal print thing you have here. The scarf is a larger print and the shoes go quite well with it!
