Hello friends and happy September! Ahhhh, my favorite time of year has arrived and I couldn't be more excited!  The fall season is so special to me for many reasons and absolutely love each one.  A chill in the air, apple and pumpkin picking weekends, football games, Sunday suppers, cozy campfires and gorgeous rolling landscapes are only the beginning.  The shapes and shades of our closets are also autumn-inspired with fresh prints and rich jewel toned colors.  One of those prints I'm currently super excited about is the much loved leopard.  Animal prints have been hot the past couple of years as they've become the new neutral.  They pair so well with black, brown, camel, ivory and gray and can be easily incorporated in a variety of ways.  

For the less adventurous, these earrings are perfect with a low pony, a cashmere sweater and some wide leg capris in pretty camel or ivory shades.  If you want a bit more, I say go with a pretty animal print scarf, blouse or great pair of loafers.  But if you are uninhibited in your love of leopard then definitely try on a fun skirt or slim pair of pants topped with a black balloon sleeve sweater to easily balance out the look.

Chocolate, desert and rose-toned eyes and lips are the perfect choice for complementing any of these looks.  They're also another one of my favorite changes come fall.  How about you guys?  Are you all into the animal print look as much as me?  I'd love to know your thoughts and faves!

Hope everyone is having a great week so far...thanks for reading and see you Friday!
