Leopard Blouse, Finally


I've been trying to figure out how to wear my leopard shirt for EVER. The lovely Lydia from the blog Chic on the Cheap has been wearing hers in so many different ways. And although it's inspired me a great deal, I just couldn't seem to wear mine. Lydia suggested that I wear it with these hot pink pants. And since today was my office holiday party, I thought I'd try it out.

I have to say, I didn't feel as self-conscious as I thought I was going to feel. I mean, the hot pink pants kind of take some of the flash away from the leopard. A little bit, anyway. It's all in all a very loud outfit.

Because I blog about my daily outfits, I'm much more daring with clothes than I used to be before blogging. I'm actually excited to figure out another way to wear this blouse. Yay, me. And thank you, Lydia!

I'm glad that blogging is inspiring you to push the envelope. You look so good in edgy outfits. You have the personal charisma to carry them off.

Cute! It is loud. In the good way. I like loud. I also really like the combo of pink and green. Good job, Lydia. Good job, you.

Unemployment has fried my brain. More boring comments.

I don't just throw this word around - but I can't think of another one to describe it...fierce. There I said it like it's 2009, you're fierce.

Lydia knows what she is talking about. This looks AWESOME! Leopard is totally a neutral, so you could wear this with just about anything :)

I love the mix of the hot pink leg and the leopard shirt! I remember Wendy B saying leopard was a neutral, and I've been wearing it as such. I think you'll be getting loads of mileage outta your meow meow prints!

Happy holidays to you! xo. Bella Q
