Mixed Prints

fall style me pretty challenge, get your pretty on, mixing prints, leopard booties

  Shop the Look:
Striped tee: Express (old) (similar here, here, or here)
Jeans: Paige
Crossbody bag: Halogen (old) (similar here, here, or here)
Booties: Nine west (old) (similar here or here)
Necklace: The Limited (old) (similar here or here)

I am participating in a Fall Style Me Pretty challenge with Alison Lumbatis.  This is my look for Day One.  The look was to include a striped tee, boyfriend jeans, and short booties.  I opted for leopard print instead of the suede solid color and swapped out rolled skinny jeans for boyfriend jeans. (I have not found a pair of boyfriend jeans that I like - still looking... any suggestions???...) Over the next couple weeks (the challenge is for 21 days), I will be posting different looks from my own closet.  And, weather permitting (if it would stop raining...), I plan to get outside and take some pictures of what I am wearing for this challenge.  The leaves are so pretty right now and would be a perfect backdrop.

I am part of a link up for the challenge - so be sure to check out the other ladies participating below...

Also, Shopbop is having its Friends & Family sale - 25% off until the 16th. Here are a few of my picks.  (Code: Family25)




p.s. Just thought I should mention that I do own shoes/boots that are not leopard print and other jeans... These just seem to be on repeat.

  8. Very cute outfit! I love pattern mixing and am becoming more and more confident with it. I'm still on the hunt for boyfriend jeans too but I have my eye on some from GAP. They seem to be more slouchy.

    1. Thanks. I am looking for ones that are so tight in the ankle area - a little wider to balance out the slouch. I've looked at the ones for Gap - I might have to give them a try.
