Leopard print done right: Minimalistically

Here's another throw back fashion photoshoot. Laura and I took these photos back in the fall of last year, hence why I am able to bare my legs in these photos as it was warmer then than it is now.

I've honestly never been a huge fan of leopard print. I think it's done wrong entirely too often, which means you usually end up looking cheap. And since I'm already thrifty in what I spend on my clothes, I run that risk enough! I certainly don't need a double whammy :)

Anyhow, I'm pretty sure I actually saw this exact shirt featured in a post by Kendi Everyday and I was instantly smitten with the style and the price. So naturally I style-stalked her and ran out to Old Navy to make the purchase. And it's been a handy little piece to have in my wardrobe. Stay tuned to future posts to see the other ways I like to style it!

Here's the cheapskate outfit breakdown:

1. Leopard print top, Old Navy ($19.50)
2. Peplum skirt, Lotus Boutique ($9.99)
3. Guess pumps, DSW ($29.99)
4. Black cami, GAP ($6.50)
5. Crossbody bag, thrifted ($5.99)
6. Sunglass, Forever 21 ($5.80)
7. Cocktail ring, gifted

Total: Under $100
