Leopard as a Neutral
Forget the Monday blues- today I'm dishing about leopard! I myself have been living in a pair of leopard print heeled booties that I got almost 2 years ago. Crazy, right? I obsess over these booties since they have held up this long (Thanks, Nine West!), are comfortable (for heels), and are different since they are leopard print.

I find myself wearing them so much, and I've even become brave with them by wearing them with mixed prints and even sequins. I know, it seems over the top, but I say go for it! The great thing about a printed shoe, is it actually IS super versatile, although at first thought, you may think a neutral black or brown shoe is better fit for numerous ways to wear. I'm going to encourage you to view leopard as a neutral. The great thing about leopard, is it can be worn with almost any color, and it adds a great pop of print to really jazz up a look. Take for example an all black look. Sure, pairing it with black shoes makes sense, but pairing it with leopard shoes gives the look more depth and an added print which really pulls the look together.

Since I've been living in my booties (that I can no longer find online- boo!), I've been shopping around looking for other leopard print styles to add to my closet. In shopping around, I've come across some great picks for all styles- flats, booties, and heels - all for less than $100. Today I'm featuring a round up of some of my faves I've found on my search for all leopard everything! Enjoy, friends!
