Yes, Fall is here…as much as I fought it, it came anyway! But my recent quest for this seasons lively styles has been a great distraction from losing my so precious summer pool days. The prints are fun and I think far more interesting than my usual go-to seasonal plaids. So I guess this Fall is not bad after all.
Leopard, Snakeskin and Camo prints are all over the runway for this season (and next). Especially leopard…everywhere you turn you see it on the street, the stores(you remember those?), Instagram, Pinterest, Runways, Magazines and mostly my closet!
I’ve always had a real thing for camo/military looks so they have always been a staple in my closet. This season I’ve added some real cute updated ones though..you can’t go wrong with camo!
The snakeskin print is a new one for me, and I’m really enjoying it! (The Snakeskin print clutch bag below is my new favorite!)
As for the leopard print, in the past I’ve only had leopard accessories, so all these wonderful clothing pieces are fantastic and honestly fun to wear! I am admittedly bit obsessed with it. It’s practically a basic this season and everyone should have at least one fun leopard print item in their closet this fall.
It used to be (back in the day) that leopard, snake and really any animal print style was considered a bit …well…for lack of a better word…tacky. Well, not any more…and even if it may seem a bit too much for your personal taste, you don’t have to go all in. You can just start with a cute animal print shoe,belt or bag but speaking from experience it’ll start to suck you in. Before you know it you’re wearing it head to toe…NO just kidding…PLEASE don’t do that…even I, an avid, obsessed leopard lover won’t do that…we don’t want to bring it all the way back to tacky now, do we?!?
I’m going to probably overwhelm you with all the fantastic leopard pieces I found…remember just one or two (or 3 or 4) as unique, fun to wear staples in your closet is all you need.
Now, because Leopard, Snake and Camo are showing up everywhere I just had to have it …well not all of it but if I was going to acquire any I was going to need some great deals. So my latest QUEST began! And everything I found is under $50! Yeah!!
Remember, you are never too young or too old for a style or trend…IF IT MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD, JUST WEAR IT!
I’ve also added a couple of great plain, basic pieces that go with all the prints…camo, leopard and snake!
Just a note: Don’t forget when you’re buying online to check reviews…it helps tremendously with sizing.
A FEW OUTFIT INSPIRATION PICS:
I’m going to start with a great deal that I found on a pair of sneakers I just had to have (I love a good pair of sneaks!). The Leopard one I found were at Nordstrom for $137.98…no I don’t think so…lol….so I found this other great pair on Amazon for $25.20 so an amazing savings of $112.78! Fantastic Deal!! They come in a Snake print as well! And I don’t know about the more expensive ones but these “cheap” ones are so comfy they’re like wearing slippers…really!
Here are just some of the fantastic deals I found on my QUEST:
