Animal Magnetism

Today's like-minded moment is sponsored by Bird's Eye Voila!, whose food truck of one-skillet pasta dishes was nearby and offering delicious samples.  We were pleasantly surprised to find that we had both worn some leopard-spotted somethings today.

The white peplum is back!  I intended it with a skirt this morning but learned that peplum is best worn with something fitted, not flared.  Enter these skinny pants.  This outfit is more in line with what I'm supposed to wear to work, rather than some of the risks I've been taking lately that border on nsfw.

In line with trying to step up my accessories game, here's another bright and bold necklace.  I know Paloma's brother wants us to do this, and so much more, but it's a start!

Paloma says...

When I last sported this skirt, it was uber-frumpy.  And I hated the look. But I love this skirt, so this outfit was my attempt to resurrect it as cute and chic.  Success!  A leopard pleated skirt may not be considered a closet staple by most, but to me it is as versatile as it gets!  The colors are neutral so any solid color will work with it, it is totally season-less (tights in the winter), and it can easily be dressed up or down (how cute with flat sandals and a slub white tee?).  And would you believe it's from Forever 21??  OK, OK, not all that surprising coming from me.
