Do you know what I like about animal prints? (Well, besides the fact that they go with everything and that I automatically look sophisticated?) I like that every fall they come back in style. As if they ever left us, right? My advice: Buy leopard print, keep forever. Well maybe not forever — I don’t want that coming back on me in 2050 when you are still hanging on to a leopard pencil skirt and quoting me to the fashion police. Buy leopard print, keep for as long as you’d like. There we go; much less pressure on me now.

  1. Love your top! Lokks a bit military-ish at first, but with that skirt it gets that necessary touch of femininity!

  2. Mmmm, never can go wrong (well, sometimes you can!) with an animal print!

  5. I love leopard so much but especially this fall it is awesome!

  6. SO cute!! I have never gotten into animal prints, but I always love them on other people – especially love how you paired it with the olive green and those amazing heels!! Can't believe they are PAYLESS!


  7. your outfit has a hint of military in it… Love the pairing:)


  8. What a beautiful outfit! I'm loving everything leo and I'm also a huge fan of transparent blouses. I have plenty of pieces in both categories… so I should be ok for the next 30 years. 😉

  9. I just love this outfit! It's so hard for me to style animal prints since I honestly have no idea how to de-crazyify (it's a word…) them, but I like the idea of mixing them with brown…seems easy, almost! :]]]

  10. i love all the neutrals in this outfit kendi, very 'fall', very nice!

  11. I love leopard all the time!  I got a leopard belt that is my new favorite accessory!  That skirt is too cute!  Currently, I am really wanting to find a leopard cardigan for the fall.  

  12. This outfit is to die for!  I love everything about it; you pull off the chic safari look effortlessly!  I will probably keep my leopard forever if that's ok with you…

  13. Agreed that animal print is classy…but I've definitely seen plenty of trashy animal print too. I can't put my finger on what makes the difference, but I know it when I see it. This one's classy, so no worries. Also, would we call the top olive green? Or brown? I can't decide.

  15. Adore this look! Especially loving the skirt and the bag! So chic!

  16. Definitely loving the shoes and this whole outfit. I can't believe those shoes are actually from Payless! 


  17. Kendi! Stopped by Bloom on Saturday and loved it. So bummed I didn't get the chance to meet you!

  18. Love the outfit, but I think you're wearing your bobby pins wrong. Bumpy side should be touching your head and smooth side out. Otherwise you're flawless, as usual. 😀

  19. Love the animal print on u…! I actually dont have anything animal print… Maybe i should get one for the fall!


  20. Yay! Leopard is the ultimate neutral, looks awesome with everything from pastels to jewel tones to your lovely army green!

  21. I'm started to grow more and more fond of leopard… I just bought a leopard shirt dress that I'm saving for just the right occasion to show off! Love your skirt! 

  22. I love leopard print ~ I always say it's my favorite color! I have that skirt too and wear it all the time. You look fabulous!

  23. when you walk down the street do randos shout out "I love you Kendi!!!!" — they should.

    lovely as always.

    why do I feel like I creep now? sorry. 

  24. I wish I could do a cat eye like you! So subtle but so pretty! And animal print is always a must. P.S I just told me husband (who calls me 'Cassie Everyday' when I'm looking trendy) that I have a girl crush on you… Awkward. But seriously I might have to go visit my relatives in McKinney so I can shop Bloom… You seriously stock that place with the cutest stuff!!

  25. I love it when you have a piece of clothing I also own.  Great way to steal ideas for outfits 😀

  26. I love that skirt.  I'm always wary of animal prints.  I should just take the plunge and add a couple of pieces to my wardrobe.  Thanks for the inspiration.

  27. I find this outfit so refreshing. I would never think to put something like this together. You like lovely.

  28. I have a leopard belt from about 5 years ago so I agree with you on keeping leopard forever!

  29. Simple math equation: adorable olive blouse+ equally adorable leopard-print skirt= perfection… You are so amazing Kendi!


  30. I love your early fall looks! I'm soooo not ready for dark colors and heavy layers. Love how you're wearing skirts and shorts but with a more seasonal twist!
