I love the idea of layered clothes--what's not to like about extra protection from the cold that also looks cute?--but I have a hard time finding pieces in my closet that look right together. Sometimes I try and fail, realizing that my upper body looks like it's been stuffed with marshmallows. That said, I really enjoyed the way this pairing turned out; the peek of leopard makes this outfit a lot more fun. It also gave me a chance to wear my new lace-up booties, which were an early birthday present from Sam, for the first time. I love 'em!
