So I have to tell you, leopard print is a relatively new thing for me. Growing up, I was always a tiny bit scared of it, every time I saw the pattern, it just seemed to look a little trashy. However, over the past few years I’ve come to absolutely adore leopard and almost regard this little print as wardrobe “neutral”. When done right, I find it adds the perfect finishing touch to so many outfits and provides an instant style injection on those days you feel anything but.
The key to leopard though is this… a little goes a long way. To avoid the scary leopard lady look, incorporate it as a detail – belts, heels or scarves are brilliant! Complementary to this is my other favorite… gold! I simply love the warmth of this hue and find it works so well to add a little laid back luxe to your outfit.
This week, I combined leopard and gold with a pop of color in the form of a gorgeous green scarf from celebrity favorite brand Nepali by TDM. Pairing it all with a simple white top and tailored black shorts provides the perfect canvas. You’ll also see those Prada sunglasses are on repeat again (I just can’t get enough!)…
I’m excited to introduce you to Lindsay from Lee LaLa. Every week I look forward to seeing what outfit Lindsay’s created next! She has gorgeous style and puts together fabulous outfits that are not only chic, but also have a sense of relaxed relatability.
STYLE Q&A WITH LINDSAY…
What is your go-to look? Pre baby, I lived in heels and stilettos but as all mom’s know, with kids in tow this look is a thing of the past. My day to day look this summer is skinny jeans, an oversized tee and gladiator sandals, a maxi skirt and tank, or a cute sundress. I’m all about the accessories and believe you can change any look or dress up any outfit with the right accessories.
There are so many fashion trends right now, which on are you currently loving? I am loving all the festival looks this summer. Overalls, flower crowns, floral prints, cut offs. I need an excuse to rock one of those crowns darn it!
What inspired you to start Lee LaLa? I started my blog after the birth of my daughter Landyn. I wanted an outlet to express my creativity and also keep family and friends updated on my life. I love looking back to growth in all areas of my life. Blogging has already become a testament to so many chapters of my life.
Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without? My Olay daily moisturizer with spf, Burt’s Bees pomegranate lip balm and Nerium for anti-aging.
How would you describe your style? My personal style is a mix between boho chic and cute and girly. I love to intermix the two and play up certain trends with my own spin.
