One day I was feeling a little grumpy and uninspired, so I thought I’d try something new and put on ALL the prints! Haha …okay, not all, but my three favorite: camo, leopard, and snake. And I’m not to0 mad at how it turned out! It felt cute and different. Different is something I think we’re all craving more of these days, right?
Nothing makes me happier than wearing all my favorite things and this outfit is really a combination of some of my very favorites, including a couple of pieces that just keep being favorites season after season.
Do you love the cool look of pattern mixing but aren’t sure if you’re doing it right or you just don’t have the time to bother with it? This top is the perfect solution! The patterns are pre-mixed! Stripes on the front with a leopard herringbone pattern on the back. Love this! Of course like most style bloggers, I’m happy to mix patterns on my own, but I still love this top!
And hey, I finally found some boyfriend jeans I really like.
Yay Old Navy!
Mixed pattern top – Charlotte Tarantola (Details Willow Glen) (exact sweater here, two other cute sweaters here & here)
So my most adored after Xmas purchase is this fabulous wool leopard coat! I found it at my favorite Willow Glen/ San Jose boutique, Details! (Bay area readers, stop by and check out their chic selection. FB page here.)
I’ve had my eye out for a leopard coat for awhile. I was thinking faux fur, but wasn’t really sure. Then I saw this wool coat and I knew it was perfect for me, with flattering lines and structure. I can style it classy, funky, or glam.
Coat – BB Dakota (Details in Willow Glen)
Jeans – Gap Always Skinny
Shoes – BCBG Paris (DSW)
Turtleneck – Tommy Hilfiger (Marshalls)
Sunglasses – Ralph Lauren
I’m so obsessed with it that I might wear it every day if I didn’t have such cute Xmas gifts that still haven’t gotten any outfit post love yet! I planned to do a lot of photo shoots during my vacation, but the hubby was off with me the whole time, so … that didn’t happen. But it was way more important to have down time together to relax and connect!
One of my 2015 goals: balance!
(To be honest, I think that one is on the list every year.)
How is 2015 treating you so far? Hope all my readers are off to a fabulous start to a magical year!
Here’s a glance at a few of my favorite looks of the year:
Ponchos and fringe.
Red, pink & leopard.
Maxis & chucks.
Is it a dress? Is it a vest? Is it a cape? Who knows?
Glad in gladiators!
Wrap it up.
Leopard AND plaid?!
Southwest at its best!
Back in black.
How was your 2014, Dolls? Mine was full of changes, both good and bad, including the loss of my best friend and shopping buddy, my mom. My hope for 2015 is that life settles into a nice rhythm and flow, and that any changes come in bite-sized bits.
Thanks for spending the year with me. So looking forward to another year of fashion fun with all you sweet fabulous chicks!

I thought I’d give last year’s F21 graphic sweater (original post here) a new twist by adding some buffalo plaid. To be quite honest I’m so mad for plaid right now that I kinda want to add it to everything anyway!
Sweater – F21
Shirt – So (Kohls)
Jeans – Gap Always Skinny
Sneakers – Candies (Kohls)
Bag – Mia (Mellow World)
Bracelets – J. Crew
I took my French message sweater to a local Italian cafe (Dolcetto Cafe & Market) in our new neighborhood. Seriously I don’t even know how I’m not going to gain weight with all the delicious and adorable cafes all within walking distance!
I’m sure that icing drenched cinnamon roll was low cal, right?
So Dolls, are you adding more plaid to your wardrobe? Are you still wearing your French themed graphic sweaters and tees?
