Purple and Heather Gray

{Express cardigan, skirt, and bracelet, Vintage earrings, American Eagle tee, 
BCBGeneration clutch and heels}

I purchased this skirt only a few days ago during the semi-annual sale at Express. It's so comfortable and perfect to pair with a basic tee or even a chunky sweater when the weather starts to cool down. It is mostly made of cotton which is great, because it makes it so breathable and easy to wear. I love the silhouette that a structured pencil skirt can give and with this one you get that same look, but on a very light and casual level. 
This skirt is definitely a must in my closet.

Happy Birthday Leopard Martini

{Express color block sweater dress, Steve Madden heels, Vintage earrings}

The blog turns 1 year old today! I can't believe it has already been a whole year since I started this journey. I have enjoyed absolutely every single minute of it. I am so completely grateful to my amazing and wonderful boyfriend Ben who pushed me to begin blogging and who has always encouraged me to follow my dreams and pursue what I love most. You helped spark a passion in me that I have had since I was a little girl and for that I am so thankful Benji. I adore you more than you could ever know. Thank you for always being my number one fan.

To my gorgeous mother, I wouldn't be who I am if it wasn't for you. Since I was very young you have always encouraged me to tap into my creativity and have allowed my passion for life to grow. You showed me how to be a true lady(both inside and out), and how to dress like one at that with my early childhood trips to Nordies and Anthropologie. You have been my shopping partner in crime for years and will always remain my favorite style icon. This would not be possible if it wasn't for you :).

To my followers and everyone that has contributed to Leopard Martini, thank you so much for your endless support and for allowing me the opportunity to share with you my love for all things fashion and for everything in between that inspires me. I have met so many beautiful and inspiring people throughout this journey, from bloggers to business owners, and fans to fashionistas have pushed me to never give up on my dreams. Here's to many more years and posts to come! I am so excited to see what's in store next!

Sequins and Leather

{Express (minus the leather) blazer and sequin shorts(new), 
Victoria's Secret PINK tee, Charlotte Russe peep toe booties, Kohls necklace}

Happy Monday!

So lately, I am really loving mixing a super girly piece with something totally edgy. Pairing sequins and leather always makes for a totally fab and trendy combo. (Plus, I am always looking for a good excuse to wear sequins.) I tied the look together by pairing the sequin shorts with a basic v-neck and a gold statement necklace. I found these shorts on sale at Express just a few days ago for only $20, and I was so thrilled! I have been searching for a cute pair for a while now, so when I spotted these I was beyond excited. I tried to find a link for you guys online, but they appear to be sold out on the website so I definitely recommend stopping by your local Express store. Their semi-annual sale is still on right now and you should be able to find them there! 

I hope your week is off to a fabulous start! ~ xo
