      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!

    Ha 🙂 You are smart girl, I have to wear glasses all of the time, so if this were the case, I would be brilliant! I think they are very cute on you. 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

    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
