Payday Pretty | Love Leopard

Psst,I have a secret.

I’m leopard obsessed!

OK, maybe it’s not a secret.  If you’ve been reading for long then you’ve seen me wear all of these great Payday Pretty pieces of leopard over the past few months.

Yep, leopard is an awesome way to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to just about any outfit.

Let me illustrate using three of my favorite bloggers:

#1 – It works as a neutral and looks just as good paired up with patterns as it does with solid colors.

Mixed Prints - Leopard & Floral

I love how Nikki is rocking this leopard with floral look.

#2 – It looks incredible with red.

Shanna‘s red accessories are sheer perfection!

#3 – It’s oh so rich with green.

Does Sheaffer look sassy or what??

Speaking of Sheaffer, she loves her some leopard in this post too!

Now I’m looking to expand my leopard collection past the basics.  So I went on the hunt for some leopard Payday Pretty inspiration pieces for $50 and under.  I’d love to add these to the collection!

Picture these wedges with a pair of crisp white shorts, a bright orange cardigan and gold accessories.  Summer perfection!

I love the classic Timex face and the calf hair band on this watch.

I flippin’ love these pants!  Just picture them with a little green cardigan for spring.  Oooo, must have!

And since my leopard flats are almost worn out…one splurge, just for fun.  Hey, a girl can dream, right?

    I love leopard! Although I prefer it on accessories for myself. I do have a leopard print vest, but that is the only piece of clothing. Now shoes? Girl I have five pairs of leopard shoes. Five! 🙂

  • How many times have a worn my leopard scarf…COUNTLESS! I love leopard accessories…especially scarves and shoes. I have yet to go ALL OVER leopard…but never say never:)
    Hope you have a great weekend girlie!

  • I have a leopard print scarf and it’s fun to match it with different outfits and tie it differently.

  • I’m with ya! Love my leopard!

I have been searching for a pair for awhile now. I am so excited you found my blog, so I could in turn find yours. Lots of inspiration here.

    And can I just say, I just found your blog and I LOVE it! I’m obsessed. I’m following every way I can, so nice to meet you! Can’t wait to read more!

  • I am new to your blog so I enjoyed your many styles of leopard as I like it too! I just love the gloves with white coat…so chic! Hope you enjoy your weekend!

  • I love leopard! I bought some leopard pants similar to the ones in the pic from Forever 21 a couple of weeks ago and can’t wait to get them!!

  • You are owning the pops-of-leopard! Love the Timex. Thanks for linking p to Visible Monday.

  • Oh I love leopard. i made the leap about ten years ago with a faux fur coat and have been adding to the collection over the years. Glad you are a member of the leopard-lover club!


  • I love leopard too. You look adorable in your outfits. Shaeffer is so cute too. I love the green with the leopard.

  • Allison- Love all the leopard! Great looks and I’m going to hunt down those Payless wedges. They are too cute!

  • I’m such an old lady about leopard … time was when only Brigitte Bardot and louche-looking actresses from the Continent (early to mid-’60s) wore leopard … either in very tight capris or very tight angora sweaters, cropped. (I learned the concept of fashion irony from a fan-mag photo of incurably virginal actress Sandra Dee wearing said capris in a seductive pose.) You young whippersnappers are doing it right (lady-like and modern concept) so I am almost converted. Am going now to dig out my fake Spy bag in fake-furry leopard. It can go out and about a time or two as it is still wintery here.
    Thanks for the object lesson!

  • I adore leopard, too! And that coat in the first picture is stunning, too!
