Layer Up: Leopard and Gingham

I visited a J.Crew Factory store last Friday to purchase the contrast-sleeve sweatshirt (featured in my In the Mix: Casual Style post). While there, I spotted the classic buttoned-down shirt in suckered gingham. And, what can I say? I love almost anything with a gingham print, so I decided to try it on. The shirt fit so well I decided to get one. Of course, the storewide 50% off sale made the decision quite easy.

You know you really love a purchase when you can’t wait to wear it. Yesterday, I layered my new gingham shirt under a leopard pullover to create a cool print mix for brunch. Here’s that look.

    I love all the pieces separately but combined, they are amazing! And can we talk about your hair…swooning!

    Well, I just never would have thought to mix those prints, but they look fabulous. I love this whole look!

    I knew there was a reason I liked you… I bought this shirt and that same sweatshirt this weekend. We are kindred spirits! Love how you mixed it with the leopard. PS – I'm wearing leopard in my post today too. Crazy.

      Get out! We are in sync! The fit of this classic shirt is so amazing, I think I want to try a few other prints.

    I bought this shirt and that sweatshirt this weekend too! We are kindred spirits for sure! I'm also wearing leopard in my post today.

    I love how you paired the leopard with the gingham. Very fun!
