When mixing leopard with colour has never felt so right. 







Organizing my photos from the UK (90% of which were taken with Instagram and I feel so bad about it) and here's the one outfit post that I managed to shoot. Wearing the leopard coat that kept me warm throughout the trip (I swear I had brought other outerwear with me!), and recreating one of my favorite combos for the winter; leopard with intense colours. I do feel however that this only works when leopard is printed on a fur, and not in any other type of clothing, e.g. trousers or showing lingerie (that's a nasty thought actually).

But if you're looking for a way to make a statement without going over the top, this is the solution. After all, leopard has become a very ordinary pattern today, and can be easily found in every store. Its crazy pattern makes it hard to combine and that's why people tend to avoid it altogether or create outfits that go too far. But if you're simple and not looking for "that extra something" (not in this outfit that is), you can't go wrong with it.
