I have been searching for a great, but still affordable, leopard coat for ages. While leopard is indeed a neutral, not all leopard coats are created equal. Done right, a leopard coat is chic, timeless, and adds great pattern and texture to any look. Done wrong, and you will look like you walked out of the Jersey Shore.

Fortunately, this season chic leopard coats seem to be everywhere. I snagged this beauty from J.Crew during one of their big sales (it seems like they are offering amazing discounts every week lately). I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the shape, pattern, and fit of the coat (I ordered a size 4). It is not a super heavy coat, but perfect to layer over a light sweater or blouse on less frigid days.

This look pretty much sums up my style — I love mixing print, color, and patterns in interesting ways. A couple of people have suggested that if I wanted to grow my blog I should probably feature more basic looks, and I don’t disagree. I have tried basic, and it just isn’t me! Not that I don’t think basic looks are chic, I do. But for me, the fun of fashion is pushing the envelope just a bit. I mean, who wouldn’t want to add a big bow to their blouse lol?

  1. I am delighted that you refused advice to make your looks more “basic.” You aren’t basic, so your looks shouldn’t be either! I have been reading your blog for years now and love it for your unique style and reflections on travel, academia, design, and more. Something I truly appreciate about your blog is that it is written intelligently and by a woman who has a job outside of blogging. As a masters student who plans to pursue a doctorate, I find it difficult to relate to many bloggers who have few interests outside of fashion. Your blog is an intellectually stimulating, insightful breath of fresh air, so thank you 🙂 Never let anyone make your blog into what they think it should be. Let it be what you want it to be. About 1.5 years ago, I started writing a travel/life blog. If I wanted more people to read it, I could post more often and make life seem picture perfect, but that is not who I am and that is not what I will let my blog depict. I write it for me.
