Three ways to wear leopard print

GET that animal instinct!
I really love leopard print and it’s definitely a staple in my wardrobe. I’m happy to throw it into almost every outfit so I thought I’d throw together a little guide about how to incorporate it.

Simple accessories are key.

This SUPRE dress (yes, you read that right) is one of my favourites.
I love the light fabric, the way it hangs and the touch of faux leather on the shoulders is something a little bit different.
Because of the high neckline it doesn’t need a necklace and (although they’re covered by my hair) I have black stud earrings on.
I threw in some simple heel because the dress does all the talking.

Perfect for a day of running around!

This is great for a more casual look. Shorts, a coloured tee and a relaxed shirt are all you need.
I got this shirt from an op-shop and rolled up the sleeves – perfect for a picnic or a day in the sun!
Or swap the shorts for a pair of jeans if you need to be a bit warmer.

I can’t get enough of this dress!

Now THIS is a statement piece!
This pink leopard-print midi dress is definitely something to wear when you’re feeling bold!
I like the length of this dress because it lengthens my figure and is less showy than it would be if it was shorter.
These big black platform pumps are also to die for!
 
The main rule for leopard print is to focus on one piece and keep everything else simple.
But, that said, rules are made to be broken!
I haven’t ever really tried the clashing prints style but never say never.

My ultimate outfit and a holographic handbag

Every now and again you put together an outfit that just ticks all of the boxes.
As I mentioned in my holiday wrap-up post earlier this week, I found  the most incredible handbag.
While shopping with two of my loveliest gal pals in Melbourne this week I spotted it in a little store called Kinki Gerlinki in Brunswick.

I. Am. Drooling.

The brand is Bao Bao and this extraordinary bag crumples and reflects the light in an innumerable amount of ways.
I paired it with an outfit that combines two of my favourite elements: leopard print and faux leather!
I picked up the cardigan and skirt the day before at H&M. Can I just say I am SO EXCITED for them to finally come to Perth this year?! We’re catching up with the rest of the world!

My ultimate outfit.

The cardigan is quite flowy so I tucked it into the skirt to accentuate my waist. I also put on my Samantha Wills necklace – I just can’t get enough of it right now! (Have you seen the other ways I styled this? Click here and here.)
I finished it off with my comfiest pair of flats – perfect for walking around the city all day! MAC’s Rebel lipstick felt right for this trendy city. (I reviewed it a while ago here.)

I can’t get enough of this bag!

Let’s have another look at that bag! I decided it was an early birthday present for myself and now I’m just trying not to buy everything else in the collection!

When I saw it in the shop window I KNEW I needed it to be mine!

I have a feeling I’m going to be leaving this in the sun a lot just to watch it shine.

It also came with a wrist strap that can be attached instead of the chain.

I can’t stop looking at it!

Silver and sequins and (faux) leather, oh my!

ON THURSDAY I snagged an amazing haul of clothes in an unusual place.
A workmate sporting an incredible metallic gold jumper told me about a giant sale at Supre.
Yes, Supre. (They’re still around!)

Supre dress top metallic sequins
The place is known for horrific booty-exposing short-shorts and fluoro crop tops — but it turns out they still have some nice things!

The tartan top, silver jumper and silver skirt were only $5! FIVE DOLLARS. (I may or may not have gotten so excited about buying all these that I ended up having an asthma attack.)

I can’t wait to wear all of these pieces out – I gave the faux leather pencil skirt a run at work yesterday. (Full outfit post to come for that.)

I can never resist a bargain!
