I really love that leopard goes with everything. I got a little giddy when I was trying to pick out shoes for this outfit and realized my leopard smoking flats would be adorable with it. And they were! I took it a bit further by carrying a mismatched leopard bag. The miscellaneous details of this outfit actually made me a little happier than seeing the overall view, which is why I decided to start with the details first before I showed you the whole look. Sometimes, it's simply all in the details.

I leave for vacation in exactly two days. It's amazing how much prep work goes into leaving the office for just one week - 5 short business days. I ended up working the entire weekend  to try and get ahead - I easily put in 16 hours. Does that mean I can say I'm really only missing 3 days of work instead of 5? Hmmm, not sure I could make that work. All the stress leading up to vacation, then all the stress coming back to 3458789475897 emails after vacation kinda blows. But, oh, those 7 days on a beach will be ridiculously amazing. I have some guest posters lined up for you guys while I am gone that I am just SO excited about! Stay tuned! In the meantime, send me good vibes that I survive the next 48 hours!!

    1. Thank you so much! My love for bright orange seems to have exponentially grown in the last year or so!

  3. Your animal print flats are awesome - I want them! ;o)

    1. It was actually quite difficult to find a pair of leopard smoking flats that were comfy and not super stiff. These were really a great find. I love them!

  4. I'm so happy you pulled inspiration from this! yay! Thanks for the sweet note! I also love how the shape of smoking flats gives the outfit a different feel than, say, a leopard ballet flat would.
