Pretty Pink Leopard.
Busy. Busy. Busy Bee. That is what I have been lately. Coincidentally I had a little appointment with a client yesterday, at a cafe called "Busy Bee". Plus it's December, the busiest month of the year. Don't you feel that way?
About this outfit - though worn a few weeks ago, in November - I must have had the Holidays in mind. Between my Shimmery Silver Sweater layered over the Hot Pink Bow Blouse and the Leopard Coat, it is a little bit Holiday Glam-ish, no? I always love a pretty Bow Blouse. This Hot Pink one looks perfect with the Silvery Shimmer Gray, Short-Sleeve Sweater over it. And those Colorblocked Ballet Flats are the perfect match to both of my Tops. Then, of course I wore my Leopard Trench Coat over the ensemble which has the most beautiful hot pink lining (that co-ordinates with the blouse, as well). I kept my pants simple and dressy (in black), added some dangly earrings and a little bracelet and I was done. See how else I have worn the Shimmer Gray Sweater, when I was 5 months pregnant.
