Leopard: Not just for hookers and pin-ups

I adore a good leopard print. I love that it is classic, seasonless and glamourous. I love throwing pops of it on with an outfit to take it up a notch: my gorgeous vintage leopard bag from my granny, ponyhair leopard flats, a silk scarf, an adorable printed chiffon blouse...all of these make me smile. And makes my husband wrinkle up his nose. He hates animal prints (bless him) - saying its only for hookers and pin-ups. Not so, dear hubs. I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree.

Here are some of my fave leopard inspiration photos and my outfit from yesterday- featuring my fave Boden leopard cardi. Enjoy!

I fell in love with leopard print a while ago. I used to think it was for the older generation because I used to see it on some really unfashionable people when I was growing up. But I bought my first pair of leopard flats and love the fact that they went with everything. My fiancee weren't really fond of them. When I bought them I told him they were cheetah flats and would make me run faster. :D Now I'm on the hunt for a leopard print pencil skirt.
