OOTD- A Change of Pace

I hope you all had a great weekend filled with Easter goodies, family/friend time and relaxation. My honey and I did some furniture comparison shopping, I tackled a bit of laundry, I finally got around to washing my hair (morning exercise leaves me looking a hot mess most days) and I proudly tackled making macaroni and cheese for the very first time. I was pretty happy with the end result although I'm not sure how to take the comment of it tasting like fancy mac n' cheese. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Most weekends involve me unconsciously reaching for a pair of jeans to throw on, but I've actually gotten a bit bored with my jean selection. I can't believe I'm even having such thoughts. Sweats are completely out of the question, so I decided a little leopard would spice up the day quite nicely. And an obnoxiously bright necklace was the perfect accent to all of the neutrals going on in this outfit. Seriously, why didn't anyone tell me that this necklace is set to blind everyone in sight?

What would you (or do you) wear to be comfortable that doesn't involve denim?

Outfit Details:
Leopard dress- thrifted (alternative here, wrap version here, alternative on sale here, maxi version here)
Tan blazer and white handbag- Forever 21 (similar here with a longer strap, similar handbag here with rose gold hardware, the "real" designer version here)
Black quilted flats- Scoop NYC (similar here, here and here)
Black belt- J. Crew
Neon necklace- Charlotte Russe with diy paint job (alternative here for pre-sale)


  1. love the combination of neutral and neon!

  2. Love the leopard with the neon necklace. Glad to hear you had a great holiday weekend.

  3. Ooh, fun necklace DIY!
    I am always always trying to cheat by being comfy in the real world, so I love Anthro and J.Crew's loungewear because most times you can wear them out too. I'm learning to love a knit dress as great easy casual wear!

  4. of course i love the pattern and i see those jackets are soo in right now. love the whole outfit!

  5. love your dress and the hints of yellow. GREAT necklace!

    i LOVE a great pair of jeans as well but, i also wear leggings when i want to relax and be casual.


  6. Love the thrifted dress! Great find!


Leave your thoughts after the beep....beep. I love to hear from you!
