Remember yesterday, when I said leopard print would be making an encore appearance? It seems to be permeating my life entirely. I used to be obsessed with it- and I guess I still have been- but only recently re-discovered the large contingent in my wardrobe. This outfit was inspired by this image from the upcoming Rodarte for Target line (is anyone else counting down the days....hours...minutes till Sunday's release?):

I honestly never thought to pair leopard and blue together, but I love how it looks. It was also to perfect outfit for Monday, I wore it first to work and then later to the school's Holiday Party. It was an easy transition. Maybe not the most festive, but what do you expect when your workplace's annual holiday party is held directly after work at five o'clock?! Seriously.
It's funny because now, all I can think when I'm getting dressed is "would leopard look good with this?". It's an issue. I'm noticing that, even though my outfits are different every day and I'm really not buying anything new, my wardrobe goes through stages. It's not even a conscious decision. A little while ago I was all about oranges and browns, then I was definitely wearing a lot of flannel and mustards, and now I'm onto animal prints. Do you notice things like this with your own wardrobe habits? Do you go through stages too?
