Let’s just acknowledge that I am no stranger to mixing together different prints & styles {see examples of this on my Instagram}. I like throwing in unexpected details like leopard flats or a chunky statement necklace over a simple tee .

If there is one style that 100% needs to be in your closet this fall, it is a good pair of leopard flats. Although leopard is a print, it can be utilized as a neutral! Leopard flats can be worn with just about any outfit. They are a great finishing piece that add a hint of style to escape an otherwise simple outfit! {I have linked lots of great, affordable options below!}

I am loving the deep colors, fun textures & abstract color blocking of these pieces. I have already pulled the trigger on a few of these! I think many of these items will be great staples that will transcend several seasons and can be remixed into lots of different looks!


Which item are you ready to put in your shopping cart? 

As much as I love shopping, my family’s teacher/military budget doesn’t allow for me to buy a whole new wardrobe each season. I think it is important to take pieces from last year & create new, exciting ways to wear them so they feel “new” again!

I eyeballed this J.Crew vest for months last year before finally scoring it late in the season on super sale. It was one of my favorite buys of the entire year! Even though we are in a new year with new styles, this vest was one of the first things I was excited to pull from the depths of my seasonal closet. 


& Because I can’t seem to stay away from mixing prints, I opted for a subtle mix of different prints, all in navy! I am loving how the two different stripe styles came out paired together. 


What piece are you most excited to pull out of your closet from last year?
