Last week I wore this outfit for my big outing to the local grocery store. I find going to food shopping to be very cold especially when I have to go to the freezer section so I usually try and wear an extra layer. With this boho top I typically wear a solid color jean jacket or cardigan because there’s so much happening with this print. But I surprised myself once again by noticing how cute these two items looked near each other in the closet. I think the combination works because the grey leopard pattern is subtle so it blends with the top. And even though it blends, I think the leopard adds visual depth to the ensemble.
The top is from Athleta and it’s a great one for a trip because it really doesn’t wrinkle. I layered it over my navy blue Cabi M’leggings (old) which are an ingenious blend of soft leggings with a short skirt of the same fabric. They are so comfy but I think they look much more polished than regular leggings and because of the skirt component, I can get away with a shorter top. (Usually I wear leggings with a tunic or shirt that covers my backside.)
The top ties in the back and underneath I wore a grey lace bralette which I think looks nice and is way more comfortable than any strapless bra I’ve ever worn.
My earrings are silver filigree dangly earrings and they’re so lightweight. I love them with this top because the earring pattern reminds me of the design in the top. I also love their gentle movement. I wore black Stuart Weitzman flat sandals which are old but I think nude might look better. As I’ve mentioned in previous post, I love nude shoes because they really make one’s legs look longer as well as one’s ankles look trimmer because you don’t notice the ankle strap.
I bought the jacket last season from Evereve and the brand is Kut from the Kloth. I love the raw edge as my other jean jackets don’t have that detail. I bought the jacket because I think it looks nice with my grey hair. But the more I try it with other color tops, the more I’m convinced that this subtle grey leopard jean jacket is really a neutral that would work with lots of different hair and clothing colors. Do you agree? I know brown leopard made a big splash on the accessory scene this past fall and winter. I think this grey leopard has been a surprising addition to my wardrobe.
