Grey days

I matched the weather today in my new grey leopard-print cardigan and black jeans. I was inspired by Lilly @ Lilly Style (you can see my pin here) when I realized I had similar pieces in my own closet — chambray shirt, leopard print top, black jeans, and tall black boots. I love it when style bloggers inspire you to put pieces together in ways you hadn’t thought of before!

My interpretation is slightly different in color palette. Which fits our retrospective weather, as Lilly wore her outfit on an obviously sunny day, while I wore mine on a drizzly, overcast, typical-Portland kind of day. Lilly’s leopard-print sweater has more earth tones, while mine is grey-based, and her chambray shirt is lighter while my button-down below is a grey chambray. The animal print provides a little something special to an otherwise “casual Friday” work look.

I kept the hair simple, clipping my bangs back with a silver clip. I also wore silver dangly bar earrings, which peeked below my hair line. 🙂

      The grey leopard is more subtle for me, which is why I like it. (And of course, I had to look up the “slap out” slang — I got what it meant from the context of your comment, but it was a new phrase for me! Lifelong learning… I love being a librarian!) 😉
