Look :: leopard + fatigue

jacket: Victoria's Secret (old; similar) // skirt: J.Crew (old; similar) // belt: Target (similar) // pumps: Ivanka Trump (similar)





I shot these photos in 15 minutes yesterday before I had to go to work. I finally broke down and ordered a remote for my Nikon so I can shoot my own outfit photos on a much more consistent basis for you guys. There's nothing worse than a good outfit not getting enough exposure and going to waste now, is there?

These leopard pumps are a favorite of mine, though I confess, they're probably the most uncomfortable heels I own. While the style is perfection and I searched high and low to find a pair of leopard pumps that was just so, I can't last more than three hours on my feet in these. That said, I love how they instantly glam up a very monochromatic look. Though I didn't get a decent shot with the jacket open, I had on a mustard yellow tee (last seen here) paired with my ochre pencil skirt (last seen here). The colors are very similar to give the illusion of a dress, but I added the leopard belt to break up the look and tie in the shoes. The military jacket is a favorite of mine though I haven't worn it much this season. I love the cropped length as it pairs perfectly with high-waisted pencil skirts and adds a much-needed edge to an otherwise safe wear-to-work look.

I am spending today transitioning this blog over to Wordpress. When I decided to start this blog I wanted something quick and easy, but I'm now realizing Blogger isn't quite as functional as I'm accustomed to with Wordpress. I want the ability to interact with you guys in the comments and Blogger's reply feature refuses to cooperate. I can't wait to unveil the results on Wednesday!
