Love that flannel shirt and leopard print together! You look so stylish with those glasses!
Thanks so much, Laura!
I love this combination! It's unique and unexpected!
Thanks, Megan! I wasn't sure about it, but I ended up liking it quite a lot!
I think mixing leopard with plaid is quite interesting. Unusual. Baffling for that first second. Yours is not too busy because both patterns are fairly "large" and spacey. It works well.
And I love your bag!

It is baffling, but eye-catching! I wasn't sure, but ended up loving it!
Love, love, love the plaid and leopard! And the glasses are fab on you!
Thanks, sweet friend!
Great, great, great buffalo check shirt and leopard with plaid is one of my favorite combinations. It doesn't see like it should make sense but it absolutely does!
Means a lot coming from you, Gracey! OXOX
Love the trend! It looks fabulous on you too!
Thanks so much, Cathy!
The leopard scarf gives this look a great story. Nice touch.

Love the red and black plaid, Looks great with the dark jeans, I love that the top is figure flattering. I think the leopard id a great mix, as you have solid pants, and it works well. Happy Monday

please stop by, jess xx
Thanks, sweet Jessica!
I Love this mix! Very chic.
Oh I just love plaid ever since I went to Edinburgh last year. Got myself 3 different sweaters and scarfs:))) Glasses are really cool. xo Sabina @Oceanblue Style
Ooo can't wait to see your Edinburgh scores in your blog!
I love the trend but I think there needs to be minimal leopard shown if plaid is, like leopard print shoes with a plaid shirt. Good job here, not too excessive. I am inviting you to link up to my "Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me" link up tomorrow on my blog. You can link up anything, I will feature my favorite 5 when it is I
Over and yours could be the next. Much blog love, Rachel xo
Thanks, Rachel! I'd be honored to join in!
Thank you Dawn for linking up 🙂 It means a lot, check back next week to see who I have featured, you may be one of them. Have a safe and fun weekend! Rachel xo
You ALWAYS look "smart," dearest Dawn…in every sense of the word!! And your outfit combination here is proof that leopard is a neutral; your scarf looks fabulous with your red-and-black plaid shirt!! It's definitely an A+ from me!! 😉
Yay, the teacher gets an "A+" …OXOX
I think the leopard and plaid works – quite well!
I actually wore a very similar outfit it my blog post today! haha! Plaid just screams Fall to me and I love it! I love that you paired the leopard scarf with the red and black plaid. So cute!

Gosh I want one of those Buffalo Long-Sleeve Shirts badly. You are the 5th blogger alone today that I see wearing one. So stylishly too, I must add. Love it with the wrapped leopard scarf on top. So chic for Fall, Dawn. =)

Aww thanks, Shanna! Means a lot coming from you, Miss Style Guru!
I actually REALLY like the leopard print scarf with the red plaid shirt. I'd love to try this combo with some other colored plaids… and with some leopard print flats! You look so professional with the glasses on!
Thanks Carrie! Let me know if you try out the combo! Would love to see it!
Dawn, Love the mix here of the leopard with the plaid. So cute and fresh. You look darling with the hair up. I like the readers too. God knows I cannot live without mine and always need more as I keep losing them! I will check these out. Hope you have a good weekend! xx Kim
Thanks so much, Kimi! Looks like we're finally getting a hint of fall weather …. woohoo!
Oh la la I love how you styled this!! From head to toe you look amazing! I would have never thought to put leopard and plaid together but you have inspired me!!
Wow, how sweet! Thanks, Rhea!
Ok, you look completely different with glasses and hair up. Ever thought of a pixie? I think you could pull it off. My husby loves my pixie, but he had better right? It is 'extreme pixie' huh? I love the checks in the shirt and the mega leopard. Right on!
Thanks for saying I have inspired you to shop thrift and being so supportive of Fashion ITEM Friday!!! ♥ SUPER YAY!
We could be pixie twins if I was brave enough! Thanks, Doll!
so nice blouse ! 🙂

Thanks Amy Ann … The only thing I don't like about my bob hairstyle is that it's harder to wear up. Used to wear it up more!
