If youâ€™ve been reading my blog for a while, you know leopard is a print that took a little bit of growing on me. I started small with the skinniest belt youâ€™ve ever seen, but since have expanded into other pieces and most recently these cute little Aerosoles wedges.
Tell-tale signs of getting older: wanting to be in bed by 10:30 at the latest and wanting to wear more comfortable shoes. People always used to look at me in 4â€ stilettos and say â€œone day youâ€™ll stop wearing those and just want to be comfortableâ€. While Iâ€™m happy to say Iâ€™m not quite there yet (and donâ€™t hope to be for a while), I definitely have shifted to a more comfortable but still stylish approach.
In the fall I gravitate towards camels and neutrals and find it more difficult to incorporate prints compared to my print-happy summer style. Leopard is the perfect complement to a fall palette â€“ itâ€™ll work with just about any shade. The color of the year is definitely shining this season in this little Henri Bendel number that has become my favorite sidekick. I added these leopard wedges to a very simple but still polished day-to-night look.
Sometimes I get stumped on what to pair leopard shoes with, but my go to is usually a black skirt like this one or skinny jeans toÂ let the shoes do the talking. Iâ€™m always up for a good challenge and am excited to share that Iâ€™m a part of the Aerosoles style off contest! If youâ€™re loving the look pop on over to their page and vote!
