Cat versus dog

Thankfifi- Cat versus dog-13

Happy Monday everyone!  I had the most relaxing weekend up North with my boys, walking, eating and sleeeeeping.  It was awesome.

Anyway, about this look… I remember the days when I believed leopard was, and only should be, for Christina Aguilera in the tacky days.  Seems I might as well eat my words cause I’m loving it.  I think the rule for me is sticking to quality fabrics (no lycra or pleather thank you).  Pairing the leopard accents with a black polyester bodycon would also be an error in my book; ripped up denim and slouchy layers for the win.

On a side note, if you can capture your hair doing this (see next image) in any photo that doesn’t involve a Van de Graaf Generator then you are very special too.  We should be friends.

    I love leopard print but I agree – no pleather or lycra. I like it with the ripped denim – nice mix of smart casual. Your Gap sweater – is yours very fluffy? I have one that looks very similar to yours and mine seems to leave a layer of fluff on everything!

      Yep, exactly, fuzz EVERYWHERE. Confession – the husband once hoovered my jacket right before a shoot (with me in it) because I’d been wearing it with this jumper…

    Yes, this is so me… Everytime I see leopard print I go to buy it, although 18 months ago I was a ‘leopard print snob’!!! How times change :/

    Nothing better than a leopard bag, shoe, or scarf. It took me a long time to try it though. Now I’m a convert, and I just bought my first leopard coat. Of course, I wear jeans with it most of the time, and I’m not as brave as you to wear more than one at a time.
