Hey hey gang! I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday week filled with tons of family, friends, food, and laughs! Charlie and I have loved every minute of spending time with everyone at home this week. The more we come home the more we miss it. But it’s been exceptionally nice to not have a job in retail this year so that we were actually able to spend an entire week here. The last two Christmases were absolute whirl winds. We drove 9 hours down to NC for 2 days and then turned around and left so I could go back to work. But we enjoyed our lengthy trip this year and are headed back home to the cold northeast (we also forgot how awesome it is for it to be 45-50 degrees in December, haha).
Prim & Pop kindly gifted me the cutest leopard print cardigan there is. It’s absolutely perfect for this time of year and so cozy. Unfortunately it’s sold out but I shared 2 similar ones that I also love! I wanted to style this in a simple way so that the cardigan would be the center of the look but also so that it would hopefully be a pretty easy outfit for y’all to recreate.
So, I decided to go with all black. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: when in doubt, black out. All black is effortless, safe, and always stylish. So I layered the leopard print cardigan over a fitted black turtleneck, black skinny jeans, black booties, and carried my favorite casual black crossbody bag. I wanted the look to be laid back and cozy so I also wore a black pom pom beanie and a black scarf.
How wold you guys wear this leopard print cardigan? I love it with the all black because it’s still a sleek look despite being pretty bold. I feel like you could have some unexpected fun with it if by wearing it with a pair of ripped jeans and a graphic tee. Or you could dress it up over a black midi dress!
If you guys recall, I was doing a giveaway with Prim & Pop and I feel like such a butt hole because, with all of the holiday madness, I tooootally forgot to announce the winner! But I don’t want you guys to think it was a scam so, in case you missed it, I announced the winner, @kaintlinoh, on my Instagram stories yesterday afternoon (you can still find it in my “Collaborations” highlights)! Super excited for her and can’t wait to see what she snags! 😀
