The Fab 40s Do Leopard Print!

So this month it was my turn to decide what the 'Fab 40s' should style & despite thinking of a few different themes I just knew deep down that I'd have to pick leopard print.  After all I have a HUGE weakness for a bit of animal print & my inner 'Bet' was screaming to be let out!

Of course being a leopard print addict I have a fair few pieces to choose from ranging from shoes to bags to scarves to a pair of trousers & even a maxi skirt.  But after a bit of thought & in the interests of getting my 'Bet' fix I decided to go with a full on leopard print vibe & bring my maxi skirt to play.

Now I had planned on just teaming the skirt with a simple cami & some layered delicate chain necklaces but unfortunately summer seems to have disappeared & seeing as temperatures have dropped I've also thrown on my leather biker jacket for warmth & finished the look with a simple black tie belt to pull the look together.

So what do you think, are you a lover of a splash of leopard print?  Do you like me, think it can add that little bit of interest to an outfit & like to occasionally take a walk on the wild side, or is it a step too far outside of your comfort zone?  As always I'd love to hear your thoughts.

See you tomorrow.

    1. Yup it's safe to say I have a bit of a 'Bet' addiction Lynne. I love Dawn's look too the slip ons really add something to the monochrome look don't they.

  4. You look amazing,I love this outfit! I might steal it. Sorry no, I'm going to draw inspirations from it. Who am I kidding, I'm gonna steal it!

  5. Can't beat a bit of Bet Jane! Love your maxi skirt......all you ladies are pulling off your leopard print looks with panache! xx

    1. So with you on that Michelle, I'd miss my bit of 'Bet' ;-)

  6. Love this look on you Jane! I try to incorporate leopard print, but I haven't found the right piece yet. I bought some Top Shop ghillie lace-up flats, but returned them. :( Maybe I should have kept those. :) Keep the inspiration coming.

  7. Thank you :-) I know what you mean about the leopard print ghillie lace ups, I keep looking at them but think they're almost a bit too busy. Have you thought about just trying a simple ballet pump style, which will be timeless. Or perhaps a leopard print clutch.

  8. It was the first thing I noticed Dawn Lucy....can you tell I love leopard print lol!
    Glad you liked my outfit, that's such a lovely compliment so thank you!
