Leopard & camel

Image via Style

Judging by this post from last week, I seem to have developed quite an infatuation with Burberry Prorsum autumn / winter collection. All those hearts, rich jewel tones and leopard are right up my alley, and they make me really excited for fall weather. Usually, the idea of pulling out my chunky sweaters, lightweight coats and other boots makes me a tiny bit nostalgic for summer, but this year I'm ready to fully embrace the change of seasons.

The above outfit kept popping out at me from the glossy pages of September issues, and since I'm nowhere near spending $5000+ on a single outfit, I went on my usual bargain hunt. Finding a great leopard skirt that doesn't look cheap or tacky is no small feat, but this Mochino number landed straight on top of my fall wish list: it's just perfect! I'm also really partial to Eric Bompard cashmere sweaters (I purchased two of them on my last trip to Paris): they are excellent quality, and their price won't send your accountant into a tantrum. And of course, I couldn't resist adding a quirky detail (or two) in form of adorable jewelry: bow-shaped rings and the perfect heart bracelet add just the right touch of fun, without being overpowering. And now I wish I could purchase this entire ensemble!

It's quite funny, because I don't consider camel to be "my" color: I don't actually own any piece in this earthy hue. But I'm willing to step out of my sartorial box, and give it a try. Who knows? I may be pleasantly surprised!

  1. I love this look; I always love a neutral palette. It's already starting to get cooler where I am so I am excitedly pulling out sweaters and all my fall stuff for my closet.

    Love the pure sophistication and elegance of this combination, something I always wear together.

  3. I love this look! I tired of this hot spell we are having in California and I am ready for the cool weather of Fall. I like that you do the bargain hunting for us too:)

  4. Oh, I love this! I can't wait for the cool weather to stick around :)

  5. While I am not a big animal print girl, I can always appreciate bow jewelry! :) Love those rings! I just got some really cute bow earrings/rings from Forever 21 of all places!
