{trend to love} leopard flats...

What can I say? I LOVE a good leopard print. When I was about 11 years old, and obsessed with the Spice Girls, I redecorated my bedroom with Ralph Lauren leopard sheets and a leopard rug. I loved it, for about a year. It was... a lot. Too much, you might say. These days, I've realized the the magic of leopard is all in moderation. True, a gal can look stunning and very 'look at me' va-va-voom in a leopard-print dress, but for me it's a little much. I prefer to mix a pop of animal print into a neutral ensemble. My favorite way to do this lately is with a pair of boldly printed flats. (After the oxford & riding boot posts, is anyone surprised?) A larger, more exaggerated print seems classier to me, especially when paired with a toe that's almost pointed. A shoe like this looks absolutely perfect with dark skinnies or boyfriend jeans. If you're feeling extra sassy, sport them with a colorful, printed blouse. Grr baby, very grr.
