It’s no lie that I love a pop of leopard print in my wardrobe. I mean let’s face it, leopard print is a neutral! It kind of implies a sense of power too when you’re wearing it, and it can easily pull an entire outfit together. I have rounded up my top 20 leopard print picks for fall! Enjoy!
Leopard print doesn’t have to look the same either. There are so many different colors and textures of it. I’m OBSESSED with this little velvet rose colored button up below (2nd image). Scroll through to see my other top and sweater picks!
DRESSES and SKIRTS
Besides the leopard print dress I’m wearing in these pics, I found a few other gems for you too!
One of my favorite pieces I grabbed last season was this pair of leopard booties and I’m so excited to be wearing them again this year! I love mixing leopard with other patterns. Scroll on to see some other leopard shoe options for the season!
We leave for a trip of a lifetime in exactly 2 weeks, but I started outfit planning like a year ago haha, kinda kidding, kinda not! Knowing what to pack for Europe is a bit overwhelming, especially because I am notorious for being an over-packer. In an attempt to have room in my suitcase for fun souvenirs, I am vowing to stick to somewhat of a capsule wardrobe. This actually might be the most prepared I have ever been when packing for a vacation. By writing this blog post it has really allowed me to dig in on how I can mix and match pieces from my closet!
By sticking to a neutral color palette, you will be able to better mix and match pieces to make different outfits from your wardrobe. Pieces that are white, chambray, olive green or black will allow you to easily mix and match!
Pack accessories such as a bandana, sunnies, and a cute hat to help bring some fun to the simple pieces you packed.
A COMFY, BUT CUTE SNEAKER
When traveling to Europe, it’s inevitable that you will be walking A LOT. You want to choose one that will look great with jeans, but can also be worn with dresses and skirts.
CONSIDER A RULE OF 3
When choosing what to pack for Europe, think of a rule of 3. What are three different ways you could wear the item while on your trip. You may want to be casual during the day when walking around doing touristy things, but then at night you may want to be dressier for a nice dinner.
Have you gone on a vacay to Europe? If so, I’d love to hear from you plus your number 1 item to pack! Comment below!
Happy Friday friends! It’s a short work week for me as we are headed to the lake with friends for our annual (no kids) weekend! Be sure to follow along on IG stories! Before I go though, I wanted to share my latest must have with you! A bandana scarf! Chances are you have one of these around the house just waiting to be worked into your wardrobe. I’m sharing four easy ways to incorporate a bandana scarf into your next outfit!
TIED TO A PURSE
By far the easiest way to “wear” a bandana scarf is to tie one to your purse! It gives a bag a whole new look and it’s one that you don’t have to worry about whether or not you tied it right. There really is no way to mess this up, trust me!
Another way to wear your bandana scarf is to tie it like a bracelet around your wrist. You may need someone to help you (or maybe I’m just really uncoordinated) with this option, but here’s a quick tutorial for you to try:
Lay scarf on flat surface
Start rolling from one corner (making the roll widths to your desired liking)
Lightly drape the rolled scarf atop your wrist with equal parts on both sides
Wrap one side under, and then the other
Tie in a loose knot (this is the part you may need assistance with)
There are many ways to accomplish the scarf around the neck look. In this case I went for more of the western tie as I would call it. I folded the scarf from one corner to the other to make a triangle and then loosely tied it in the back. It’s the perfect accessory for dressing up an otherwise simple outfit.
Jewelry + shopping + cocktails = the perfect girls night out! I was in my local Kendra Scott store a few months ago and I randomly dropped my business card into the fish bowl for a chance to win a Color Bar Party. Since I don’t normally win anything, I really didn’t think this time would be any different but to my surprise I was wrong! I won a party for a few of my girlfriends and I, complete with champagne, snacks, and all of the pretty baubles surrounding us!
What is the Color Bar?
The Kendra Scott Color Bar is an interactive tool that allows you to customize your own pieces in store AND online! Choose from 50+ styles and 30+ stones to create pieces that are exactly what YOU want! Maybe it’s the digital marketer in me, but I totally geek out over fun and interactive things like this. I could spend hours playing with this tool and creating and recreating ideas. I am kind of known for being indecisive, so with this many options we were bound to be there all night 😉
A Color Bar Party allows you and your closest gal pals to have a fun night out playing with around with the interactive touchscreen, and putting together your own creations. You can choose from earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and rings! The store associates were so helpful in bringing out cases of stones and popping them in and out of various pieces for us. If you want to host your very own party, call your local store to set up a time. It’s a great idea for a girls night!
It’s fun to see what everyone creates and how it is unique to each individual. Scroll on to see what I got, and what some of my gal pals chose!
Remember how I said I was super indecisive? So instead of creating something from the Color Bar, I ended up going with a pre-made necklace! I didn’t own any KS necklaces until now, and I love that this one will go with literally everything!
The last time I visited the Color Bar, I left with two pairs of earrings. I wear both of these all of the time! I am actually surprised at how often I come across things in my closet that the green stones go with.
If you’re indecisive like me, the Shelia Earring is a great option because when you design your own you can choose a couple of different colored stones, or you can stick with all one color. This is such a fun statement earring! This cat’s eye blue with the gold looks so pretty!
Insider tip, sign up for Kendra Scott emails if you haven’t already, and in your birthday month you will receive 50% off! Now that is something to look forward to! We had such a fun evening, I highly recommend having your next gals night at KS!
I rounded up my top picks from Kendra’s new Fall Line too! What’s your go to KS piece? Tell me below!

Another weekend has come and gone, but I’m sharing one of my new fave brands that I have discovered through my content creation journey! I’m so excited to introduce you to Wooden Ships! This family owned brand has a love for casual and cool styles, and is passionate about our planet and giving back to the community.
A NEW COLLECTION
Wooden Ships recently released their new collection, “Sporty Chic” and they were kind enough to gift me with the Mini Soccer Ball Crewneck in the pout/black color combo. Soccer is a big part of our family, my husband is a huge Premier League fan (Tottenham to be exact). We are traveling to Europe this fall and have plans to attend a game at Tottenham’s new stadium. I’m excited to already have my outfit planned, haha! This crewneck is lightweight and super soft which will be perfect for the time of year. It has the perfect drape, and I love that the shoulder falls slightly off of your shoulder. It’s not too over-sized and allows you to do the perfect front tuck.
Besides the new Sporty Chic collection, Wooden Ships offers a ton of variety with something for everyone. I love their Words Collection because you can say some of your favorite things on a sweater. These are lightweight and perfect for chilly summer evenings or as a swim cover up on a breezy day!
