Leopard Dress Three Ways

No one can argue that leopard is here to stay, AGAIN.  I feel like it's become a staple, and a neutral, in my closet.  From dresses, cami's, flats, booties, clips, and belts, leopard can be worn and incorporated into so many outfits without much fuss.  This dress was passed down to me  and it's been on REPEAT again and again.  Over the summer, I wore it as a beach cover-up, see here.


Today I am sharing with you three new ways I've been wearing it.


#1 Leopard & Leggings.
This is my teacher, on the go outfit.  My life right now is 80% teacher practical, easy to move in and at a quick pace.  I chose to wear a black cami under the dress so that I can bend without a worry.  I do plan to add a black bralette, I already have a white one, from Belong Lifestyle to my   wardrobe.  They have a cute one that is a super comfortable bra, with lace, so it doubles up as a perfect cami for lower necklines.  I also went with leggings so that I can crawl around with my littles at work, and this dress is on the short side, see below the SEXY look.  For added warmth I love a good cardigan like this crochet one.  It's an oldie but a goody, but I'll link another favorite below.








# 2 Leopard dress, jeans & white blazer.
What is there not to love here?!? Tuck in the dress into your favorite high waist jeans and it's like a totally new piece of clothing.   I love how the white blazer is in stark contrast to the darker blue jeans and leopard.  It's totally fresh, polished and chic, at least I think so.  I polished off the look with my favorite pumps and computer laptop.  This is a my casual Friday and drinks after work outfit.  Let's just say TGIF!!!





#3 Leopard dress.
I would be lying if I said that I didn't feel sexy in this little number.  I wore it to our anniversary dinner a couple of weeks ago and felt like a million bucks.  As the evening got a little chillier, I threw on that crochet duster cardigan again, and I love how it elongates me (I am pretty short so that's no easy task).  I finished the look of with my favorite chunky H & B necklace, heels, and a clutch.  We ran into some friends who were sweet and took some photos of the both of us. 










We have a pretty chill weekend planned, some painting, visiting friends and curving out a little family time.  I'll be honest, I am having a hard time finding balance between my new job and home, but I am also extremely happy when my head hits the pillow at the end of each long day.

  1. Such a cute little leopard dress and you wear it well each way! I like wearing my shorter dresses as tops too, works when there isn't too much to tuck in!

    Hope that you are having a lovely weekend :)

  10. That's a really cute dress. It's great that you can tuck it in and use it as a top also. Great idea.

    1. Thanks Julie. Because it's short and fairly lightweight, though it is lined, I feel that it works pretty well as a top without feeling like there is extra fabric.
