Dressed Up Gingham

Getting all dolled up isn’t something I do on the regular. My preference is casual and laid back with a bit of glam. Casual chic perhaps? I dunno. I do know how much I love my new gingham bell sleeve top from Loft. Something else I love? My new leopard clutch that is under $40! Wearing them together gives me all the happy feels.

Today I bring you an outfit with mostly new pieces, two of which are part of the five pieces I chose for the Common Threads Challenge. My new pencil skirt has really come in handy. I wore it last week with sneakers and now with leopard heels. This skirt is good my friends, it’s scuba material so it holds it’s shape and it’s comfortable. It runs true to size, I am wearing a size 4.

If you’re in the market for a new pair of heels and you want something other than nude (my favorite) then go for leopard. It’s also a neutral and you can wear it with black or brown so you’ll only need one pair of shoes. My leopard heels are years old but I’ve rounded up some from different price points:



One of my absolute favorite jewelry brands is Baublebar. I always have a running list of pieces I covet so when there’s a sale I pounce. My necklace was purchased a few weeks ago during a sale and this ring just can’t be beat, it’s perfect!  And p.s. right now BaubleBar is having an extra 20% off all sale prices.  They also offer free shipping and returns (think Christmas shopping!).

This outfit is one I’d definitely wear out to dinner. My feet just can’t handle standing in these heels for long periods of time but if I changed the shoes I could totally wear this to work.

Have you mixed leopard and gingham before? Are you ready to try? Fall is the perfect time to do it!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I appreciate you and your comments so much!

    1. Yes I am Shelly! Trust me I wouldn’t be wearing it this much if I hadn’t picked it for the challenge, lol! I’ll probably not wear it again once this month is over!!!

  2. Kellyann, that top is adorable on you! And I like how you styled gingham with leopard. I’ve not tried that yet…No doubt I need to add a pair of leopard pumps to my closet. Thank you for the tip! And where have I been. I’ve seen your outfit posts on IG and didn’t even realize you’ve styled this top a time or two before. Good job make new outfits! 🙂

    1. Thanks Chrissy! I know you’ll have fun with leopard and gingham! Since I chose this top as part of of the challenge I’ll be wearing it to death. I really should have chosen different pieces but oh well, lesson learned.

    1. Thanks Lana, the sleeves are surprisingly easy to wear. They really don’t bother me at work. It’s been perfect for me since it’s so hot here. I know it’s probably much cooler in your neck of the woods – I’m envious of your weather and wishing ours would cool off just a bit at least.

    1. Thanks dear friend! This top of ours is super cute, isn’t it? I loved your outfit with the hot pink necklace, I want that necklace so badly. I’m totally asking Santa for it! Speaking of gifts I wonder if you’d email me your address as I have a little somethin’ somethin’ to honor your birthday!

    1. Just say yes to the clutch Laura! It is amazing and the price is unbelievable. I just can’t spend more than that and it’s been so difficult to find one I actually like that I can afford. I mean hey, if money wasn’t a factor I’d be all over the Claire V version!

    1. Good for you Ruth, there’s just something about gingham in the Fall! Although I love it all year long it just seems so Fall, right? Leopard and gingham just seem to want to be paired together in my closet!

    1. I bet you’ll love gingham and leopard together, it is a fun combo and just seems so Fall to me. I love stripes too but I have had a hard time finding striped tops that look good on em but gingham always seems to work!
