An Affair with Leopard

Leopard is one of those items you'd think would go on my blacklist since I tend to shy away from less conservative patterns and opt for classic dark neutrals instead. And yet I can't get enough of this stand-out print. From my leopard pony hair loafers to these leopard shorts, which I paired with a classic cream blouse and a navy blazer coat, this pattern seems to show up in my wardrobe all the time.

I complemented this outfit with red lipstick, which always makes me feel a little extra special. Black tights and heels help elongate my unfortunately short legs.

It was the perfect look for shopping along Fifth Avenue in the Upper East. It also transitioned well for brunch in the West Village, where of course my lipstick rubbed off after a delicious trifecta of butternut squash soup, calamari and fried chicken. But oh well, who needs red lips when you have the perfect leopard shorts?
