I don’t know about you guys but I’ve been unreasonably excited about the return of leopard print trend. I’ve been an animal print girl for as long as can remember and I don’t miss an opportunity to wear it – honestly if I could wear it everyday I probably would. There’s just something classic and timeless about it with just a teensy bit of bad taste to make it exciting lol. It reminds me of 1950’s Hollywood and Italian bombshells – who’d pass up the perfect opportunity to bring ‘la dolce vita’ to life?  (albeit in a more casual way) Not me!

So anyway, I found the perfect leopard print turtle neck top and paired it with my go to jeans of the moment, these mom jeans.


Small, thick gold hoops, tailbone length braids and a cobalt blue puffer complete the look.

I would’ve opted for a chicer pair of boots but Toronto is freezing guys so snow boots from Sorel it is.
