Wearing Leopard For Fall: Part 1
Happy Friday everyone! It’s getting cooler here, the nights are getting crisp and I am in Fall mode 100%! With Fall, comes booties, scarves, cardigans, and more, so today I am styling one of the biggest trends going on right now. The leopard print chunky cardigans are on every Fashion Blogger’s social media and every local and online boutique.
I really liked this sweater more than I thought I would. It is longer, chunky and it makes a real statement. I thought I would style it 2 ways for you girls today, so you can see some of the versatility. Leopard print is really big this season, along with all animal prints, so I thought I would show some ways to wear leopard in the Fall in 2 different posts. Today it’s all about the cardigans, so check back tomorrow to the second part.
I looked high and low for a cardigan that had a good price point and one that was well made. I went through many but found this sweater on Amazon for under $35. It also comes in multiple colors if the beige/tan is not your color. See it here.
This cutie has pockets but does not button up, it is an open front cardigan. It does seem to run big, so I would size down when purchasing unless you want the big chunky look. You want this type to be a little big, but not huge. I am wearing a Medium for reference, I normally wear a Medium or a Size 8.
I styled the first outfit with distressed KanCan jeans and this black camisole. I picked these brown cowboy booties from Belk. These boots are part of the Buy 1 Get 2 Free deal and let’s just say…I shopped
I kept my jewelry simple but I did add a great pair of leaf earrings. I wanted a chunky, bigger earring – for some reason I like my earrings bigger. Do you like bigger earrings or do you prefer smaller ones?
I am also loving the new Gucci “inspired” belt! I have told you girls before how my daughter is forever stealing my belts – well, now I have plenty of belts to hide from her. LOL!
For the second look, I thought about denim but decided to go with white jeans to bring the white in the sweater out. And it really did! I added these chunky heel booties and a pop of color with my handbag and I was set for the day. Isn’t it amazing how a little color can really make an outfit stand out?
If you’ve been a lover of anything leopard print, then this is a great addition for you. It would be perfect for hayrides and walking with the kids trick-or-treating in a few weeks. You could even go one step further and take black face paint and be a kitty! Fun!!
With Belk having such a huge sale right now with shoes and boots, this is a great time to add a few faves. There are a few sales for shoes, some are BOGO Free, others are 50% OFF, and other price points. See all the sales at Belk here.
Thanks for taking the time out of your day and stopping by the blog. I will be back in my attic today clearing years of things out while it is cooler. Reorganizing and getting organized is a tough and LONG job that no one really wants to undertake, but it must be done. Sighhhh! What are you girls up to today? Anybody have any exciting weekend plans?

Adorable sweater! I thought it was a blue inside the black and couldn’t find that one on the link so went back and re-re-read and you said you paired it with white jeans to bring out the white in the sweater so I guess it’s white inside the black and not blue. This week we would have gotten by with just a cardigan and no outer coat but those days are being numbered. Your outfits have looked so pretty around your landscaping and your yard. I hope you can see an end to your attic purge pretty soon. You will be so glad to have that job behind you.
Ahhh the attic purge 😂 Brooklyn stopped by last night and while her mom and dad were talking she went up in the attic with me and took all my Halloween decorations 😂‼️‼️ I don’t really decorate anymore and she was pulling those things out and taking them to her mom. I laughed so hard. So I ditched a few things last night lol!!
I liked the sweater and the colors, seems like there was one that had gray/blue in it on the Amazon website. Thank you for the compliment on the pics!! I told Barry last night we need fresh mulch and a couple of mum’s fir the house since he’s been too busy to take pictures. He rolled his eyes 😂😂😂. Have a great day Sandy!!!
Good morning! That is a cute sweater and looks really good on you as does pretty much everything that you wear 😉 After reading Sandy’s comment I had to go back and look and the white part on the sweater does look like a light blue on my computer too. The weekend activities for me will be work today, tomorrow and Sunday. I have some things that need to be advertised for sale to get them out of our attic space and bonus room. Troy said that he will advertise them if I can make a list of what needs to be sold but I don’t think that I will have time to do much before I go to work. I hope you finish up your attic project soon and have a wonderful weekend!!
Happy Fri-Yay!!! I knew this attic project was a huge undertaking- but it’s coming along…slowly lol! I looked on my screen and it looks light blue too, but it’s totally white. No blue in this cardigan. It is cute and they are everywhere and I check boutiques all the time. They run around $45-48 in the boutiques and that’s just too much!! I’m a thrifty shopper for a lot of my things! Sorry you will be working the entire weekend, I think we will be having a yard sale— oh boy!! Ha!! Have a good day!!❤️❤️
Always like your style. I’m a sucker for leopard print so these ideas suit me to a tee.
You and me both!!! Missing you ladybug!! I know you’re busy working though 💕
