Olive Leopard



It’s true, I do.  Leopard is probably my favorite neutral other than black.  And it’s a neutral that looks good with black:



I borrowed the idea for this outfit from this look of Cambria’s at Jupe.  She wore forest green tights, but for some reason I don’t have forest green tights (I know, it’s weird to me too) so I went with olive.  Which ended up working in my favor because the spots on my leopard scarf are olive-hued as well.

In addition to my olive tights (Hue via Macys) and olive leopard scarf (???), I wore a black dress (vintage via Goodwill) layered over a black turtleneck (Gap) and black ankle boots (Nine West ‘Darsy’).  I also added a studded belt because I was worried the scarf-as-bow was too twee.  I like to think the belt reaffirms my status as a Billy Bad Bottom.

Happy Tuesday, Everyone!

  1. OK, that's me done, then. I've tipped over to thinking I need a black/white leopard print something, ideally a scarf. I blame you for looking so fantastic. :)

  2. Now you are doing that invisible layering thing again, where it looks like the pieces are all one. I didn't realise you had a turtle neck underneath the dress till you pointed it out! I love a bit of leopard print. I think green could also be considered a neutral, it goes with everything too.
    Of course the studded belt rocks up the feminine bow. Billy Bad Bottom? Hahaha! If you say so, Gracey! xxxx

  9. Adorable as usual. The olive tights and the leopard scarf tied as a bow are perfect compliments to your black dress.

  10. This is such a cute look and I love the unexpected way you tied the scarf
    I don't really know if there is a color out there that leopard doesn't go with HAHA

  11. So that's what lurks behind the smile, I suspected as much! Wonderful outfit, Gracey - I love how the scarf, belt, and tights speak to each other, and of course, the turtleneck magic. You are another who wears leopard print so well!

  12. Is that a belt or is it part of the dress? Either way I totally love it. I'm also loving the way you tied your scarf. Does it have to be super long to tie it that way? I would love to see how you did that! xo

  22. I will definitely be trying this look at home. I have a very similar Loft dress snagged at GoodWill that just needs a cool skinny belt and a scarf tied like yours :)

  23. Hi there Gracey! I don't think I've commented before, but I've always enjoyed checking in on your blog. Piping up now because I suspect you got that scarf at Target... I believe it's the exact same one I'm looking at sticking out of my purse! So versatile and one of my favorites :)
