Winter Challenge: Embrace a Trend

I didn’t realize what a luxury it was to have the last challenge during the summer where the sun never stopped shining in Austin. It was PLENTY bright enough inside to take decent pictures.

These last couple of overcast days, however, have made my life hard (yes, whine, whine).

Today’s theme is Embrace a Trend and it seemed like the perfect occasion to wear my new leopard print flats (I saw them on Uber Chic for Cheap‘s Babble post and about ten minutes later had my order completed).

Also, they feel like slippers on the inside (fuzzy!)

Sweater: Old Navy, Jeans: Target,
Scarf: tiny store in London, Shoes: Kohl’s


I’m participating in Kayla’s Winter Challenge. Check it out on her blog:

    I need some leopard flats. I haven't found any I love yet, though. Yours are cute… and comfy, it sounds like. I could go for some internally furry flats…

    OOoooh, cute! I want some leopard flats now, too! I have to say, your posts have been among my favorites from the challenge . . . I love seeing what everyone comes up with, and I'm amazed by some ladies' creativity and style, but your outfits in particular are very realistic and wearable. I feel like I could actually leave the house confidently in your outfits, or stay in and still be able to keep up with a toddler 😉 Keep 'em coming!

    I really love that color on you. And those flats really are SO fantastic.

    I am also bemoaning the lack of natural light. But you know I love patterned flats, so you definitely have that going for you.

    You look so cute. Also, I have never heard of that blog before, and you just made my cheap little heart's birthday dreams come true.

    OK, that might be a bit of an exaggeration but I am quite excited.

    I love those flats! Super cute. I agree with you about the natural light and weather. I've tiptoed outside in an effort to get better photos, but they aren't *much* better and then I end up sprinting back in the house. 🙂

    Cute flats! I don't own a single article of clothing with animal print on it! I realize this is a serious issue being a fashion blogger and all.
