Today I am wearing one of my all time favorite prints: leopard! Now animal prints are a big trend for fall but they can be tricky to wear. Too much of a single animal print and you start to resemble that animal, too many animal prints at once and you will resemble the entire jungle! Just a touch of leopard print is more than enough and will certainly make a statement in your look.  This Talbots sweater paired with boyfriend jeans was the perfect mix of simple & statement making. 

I want to touch quickly on my jeans... in today's outfit I am wearing American Eagle's TomGirl style.  I love the looser fit of boyfriend jeans but found that every pair I tried on seemed to just look too big instead of intentionally baggy.  The TomGirl styles are slightly more fitted than your typical boyfriend jeans.  They taper in on the leg but still have that relaxed fit.

 I also love that this pair of jeans is a darker wash and slightly cropped to show off an awesome pair of shoes. These were the perfect pair of 'boyfriend style jeans' to dress up. My sweater, heels and mini bag added some polish to this particular outfit. Don't forget to try your BF/tomgirl jeans with a pair of sneakers and cozy sweater over the weekend - this style makes the perfect pair of off duty denim.
