Changing Spots

When it comes to leopard, I don't think I will ever change my spots. My love for leopard print is slightly unnecessary, and sometimes you've got to have a little spot (excuse the pun) of tackiness in your life. 

That said, these Banana Republic pants are far from that. I will hold my hands up and admit that I did purchase these after seeing the almighty Olivia Palermo wearing them, and I am so glad that I did. The 'Sloan' pant is by far the most flattering and comfy pair of trousers I have owned to date, they are the perfect length for my long legs, and they come in a range of colours. These leopard print ones are my personal favourite, but I do think the yellow pair may be on the cards soon. 

This gorgeous clutch bag from Marks and Spencer is one of my recent purchases. M&S have a really impressive range of clothing and accessories at the moment, and it's fast becoming one of my new favourite stores. I saw this bag a couple of months ago and never got round to buying it, but I'm glad I didn't because it was definitely the bargain of the century when I checked back again a few weeks ago, at the almighty price of £12. My only grievance is that I didn't buy the pink and leopard (yes, more leopard!) version. They are unfortunately both sold out now, but you could still try in-store if you fancy a bargain.

There's lots of prints going on in this outfit, and I am just a sucker for clashing prints. It may not be to everyone's taste and some people may feel it's a bit too 'busy', but sometimes more is more. As long as you get the right consistency of prints and colours, I personally think it can work really well. Just throw in a block colour somewhere to add a bit of a foundation to your look.

What do you guys think about leopard? Do clashing prints work for you?
