Bloggers Who Budget: Leopard For Less

Dear Readers,


the style letters: Bloggers Who Budget: Leopard For Less

The Bloggers Who Budget are in a catty mood this month and sharing our animal print favorites for less. This time, I pulled an oldie but goodie from my closet.

I’m still loving this leopard dress from Target, six months’ pregnant and all. I made a slight adjustment by tying it above my bump and kept accessories simple: sleek ankle booties, a geometric gold cuff, and an oxblood foldover clutch. The tailored silhouette makes it work-appropriate; the leopard print makes it fun. It’s good to add a little sass to your weekday, I think.

    The dress looks great on you! And totally bump-friendly! The little puff-sleeve shoulders are a cute touch. Love the color of the bag too!

      Thank you so much, Rachael! It’s one of the few things in my closet that still fit at this point, although in another two weeks, I might have to retire it until post-pregnancy. 🙂

      Hope things are great at your end and that wedding planning has been a blast!
