Leopard and Stripes

August 22, 2012 by Trina 34 Comments

When I first started putting this outfit together, I originally was going to wear it on Thursday with black dress pants in place of the trouser jeans.   BUT when I discovered in my bathroom mirror lighting that the shirt was actually really dark navy and pink, not BLACK and pink, I ditched that idea.  I decided to try it with the trouser jeans instead for Friday {since we can wear jeans on Fridays at my new job, yay!} and I love how this outfit came together!

I’ve seen a lot of people pair leopard with other prints so this is me tip toeing my way into that trend.  I hope you like it!

tee: Green Envelope from Marshalls, trouser jeans: Natural Reflections from Bass Pro Shop {I know! of all places! haha}, pumps: Sole Society, necklace: unknown brand from Belk clearance rack, watch: Walmart

Funny story:  Friday morning when I was trying to get dressed I could not for the life of me find this belt!  I was looking everywhere getting all in a tizzy because I just KNEW I left the belt on the bed and someone had moved it and put it somewhere.  And clearly I couldn’t wear the outfit without the belt, it wouldn’t be complete!  So my long suffering husband spent at least 20 mins helping me look for the belt.  I eventually found it thrown over the door of my armoire almost buried in a scarf {oops, I must’ve done that without remembering!}.  I felt like an idiot.  Because he spent so much time helping me, Jonathan was late to work. And so we *both* weren’t late he volunteered to drive the kids to his parents so I wouldn’t have to.  Yeah…he’s a keeper!

    • Aww thanks so much Daryl! It used to be much shorter and I’m letting it grow out a bit but still keeping the asymmetrical look :)

  6. You look great, and I love the mix of patterns! Leopard goes with anything, in my opinion ;)
    Stopping by from The Pleated Poppy~ have a great Wednesday!

  7. I love the leopard toe shows peeking out

  8. LOVE this!!! It is the perfect combo of prints I think, and I absolutely adore trouser jeans :)

  9. I love the pattern mixing, and the wide leg pants are extremely flattering.

  10. You look so cute! I love striped tops – I’m convinced they go with everything!

  11. The outfit looks great and I really like that top- I really think navy will mix with just about any color when it comes to stripes and I love striped tops. I really like the skinny belt, too. The pattern mixing is great and boy he is a keeper because mine would not do that since he doesn’t even look for his own stuff and is yelling “where is (insert whatever)”? So yes your’s is a keeper. You look great Trina and I hope the job is going great for you :)

  12. I am dying over that necklace. I want one so bad!!! I love the stripes with the leopard, but girl I do NOT know how you wear heels everyday. I’m on the search for some leopard print ballet flats. :) Seriously though, that necklace. LOVE IT.

    • I wish they had more so I could get it and send it to you! I want to wear it all the time, it goes with so much because of all the colors :) I have some Jessica Simpson leopard flats and I love them too. I wear them often but they’ve yet to make it into an outfit post ;)

  13. Outfit looks great. And kudos to your husband for taking care of you.

  14. i LOVE your first attempt at mixed prints. i haven’t known where to begin, yet you look like a pro at it already. cant believe you got those trousers at Bass Pro Shop LOL. they’re amazing!

    • I know! I actually ripped a hole at the crotch seam about 2 years ago {maybe 3} and they’ve been sitting in my closet unmended until a few weeks ago. I think I thought they were too big. And they aren’t, they fit perfectly, so what does that say about my size perception??? haha But yeah, totally random that I found them at Bass Pro and wasn’t really even “shopping” I just spotted them!

  15. hahaha Trina you are so funny! I actually saw the “belt tweet” a few days ago or so and told my husband it sounded like me and him! lol I am always tearing through the house looking for something. Great look and perfect for work or dinner/drinks! Love!
