Pinspired: Bits of leopard

Our final five weeks of school begin today after an extended Easter break, and I am more than ready to be finished with homework and reading textbooks that aren’t in the least bit interesting. While I’m busy with school and the school newspaper for the last five weeks, I hope to get a chance to enjoy this beautiful spring weather we’ve been having. Can it please stay this nice all summer, please? Here’s the breakdown:

Blouse: Nine West via Goodwill
Denim: Gap
Heels: Vintage via Salvation Army
Bag: Goodwill
Rings: Kohl’s/Charming Charlie/Forever 21

Day two of pinspiration features this pin (and a blogger whose style I pin basically every time she posts). I took a few liberties and translated this pin into my own style, particularly with the mix of animal prints. I was surprised at how much these olive jeggings acted like a neutral against the animal prints. To me, teal, navy and olive shouldn’t go together, but in reality, they look fantastic! Just goes to show you Pinterest can provide surprising inspirations.
