They say leopard is a neutral, and they (whoever they are) are totally right. That’s why I’ve been able to wear my leopard oxford so many times in so many ways over the past year. I think it’s earned its title as a Wardrobe Workhorse. If you’re just joining us, Wardrobe Workhorse is a series – with absolutely no regular schedule – in which I highlight the unexpected stars of my closet.
I’ve worn my leopard button-up solo, under jackets, under a dress, with jeans, with skirts, for work, for school, and for fun. I don’t even know what’s left but I’m sure I’ll come up with something.
This particular shirt came from J. Crew Factory and they no longer sell it, but they do have some other fun and versatile prints. If you want leopard, try this semi-sheer one from Express, or this gorgeous silk one from Victoria’s Secret (both on sale).
For something a little different, try zebra, snake print, or abstract animal print!
Last year for Christmas, I asked Santa for the gorgeous J. Crew pavé link bracelet. Santa delivered, but he probably wondered why I had to have a $125 bracelet. I’m sure Santa would be happy to know that almost a year later I’ve worn this bracelet more than 40 times. Below are just a few examples.
I love throwing this baby on to add a little oomph to any outfit. It makes a statement because it’s so chunky, but at the same time it’s a classic. Sometimes it’s the only jewelry I wear, and other times I stack it with another bracelet or watch. I like having the “original” pavé link bracelet, but since the J. Crew version got so popular, similar versions have popped up all over.
Here are a few pavé bracelets for your shopping pleasure, including the one I have and several other cheaper options (in case you don’t want to wait for Santa).

P.S. I should note that the J. Crew bracelet is a little bit large on a small wrist like mine. To see how I fixed this problem, see this post. I can’t attest to the size of any of the other bracelets because I’ve never tried them on.
