Leopard and a Puffer

Once upon a time, each week, I showed you guys an outfit I posted on Instagram and recreated it with similar items that I wore in said Instagram post. I don't know why it's taken me so long to do another one because they are actually fun and something a little different. It was out of control cold yesterday, so I pulled out my warm and cozy puffer vest from last year and wore this almost identical look.


Below is the exact outfit that I shared on Instagram yesterday. I added a few accessories to the style board above to give you a better picture of a complete head to toe look.


I bought this leopard infinity scarf from Express two years ago. I swear every time I wear it someone asks me were I got it. It is hands down the best scarf I have ever purchased and I have worn it repeatedly on and off this blog. GREAT NEWS! Express brought it back this year and it's available online now for $18. I am not sure if the retail stores carry it. I can promise you won't regret grabbing one for yourself. You need this scarf. Trust me on this one. Break any shopping bans you have going on at the moment. 

On a completely different topic, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who commented on yesterday's post. My heart was so full after reading such endearing words from you guys. What makes me sad is that some of the sweetest ones were from people/bloggers that are no-reply commenters. I tried Googling their names, blogs and pretty much stalked them to try and find a way to respond. No such luck. So, if you commented and I did not say thank you in some shape or form, I am saying it here. Seriously, some of the most genuine and sincere notes were left yesterday and I was happy, happy, happy all day long. The blogging/social media world can be ugly and cruel, but it is also the most supportive arena I have ever stepped in. I am choosing to focus on that.

You are so right - that scarf is amazing! I am debating whether it is worth my husband wringing my neck for shopping again! Eeek!

Beautiful outfit and totally something I could put together! I have been thinking about asking my husband to get me that Kate Spade bracelet for Christmas. But I have wondered if it is comfortable to wear. And what is a no reply commenter? If I am one of those, I need to change it but I dont know how!! I need a computer class(: Susan

I love this outfit. I had a white vest once.... it quickly became a yellow and splattered beige vest :( i'm a disaster.

I love these posts! Glad you brought it back =) I know the vest and scarf are the stars of the outfit, but I am sorta in love with the sunglasses and nail polish you included!

I don't have a puffer vest. And now I need one. :)

Keep thinking about picking up a leopard scarf but was a timid on it. This one is dark enough to my liking. I LOVE those bee earrings too!

Samantha Curtis said...

Loveeeee leopard anything. I always have and people thought I was wild... nope, just ahead of the trends, right? xo

Kimberly said...

Adorable outfit - I wish I could get on the puffer vest bandwagon but they just aren't practical here in NY when you really need a serious coat! They are so cute though :)

I've been looking for a leopard print scarf. I'm going to see if Express has it in-store at lunch (I work right next to one) otherwise I'm ordering. Thanks!

Great outfit. I want a Michael Kohrs watch so bad lol I have the purse already, so have to have the watch right? lol That scarf is too cute

Alyssa said...

I'm on the hunt for a tissue thin turtle neck to wear with a vest like this. It's such a cute combo!

The Pink Growl said...

Give me some leopard and I'm good to go. Add a puffer vest and I am ecstatic!

I'm crushing hardcore on that scarf Shanna!! I'm happy you received such positive comments yesterday because I thoroughly enjoy your blog! I'm sure it's a lot more work as a big blogger like yourself but just know that your presence would be very missed if you left.

I LOVE this outfit! And I love you!

FYI retail me not has a coupon code 9401 to get 25% off express so saves on some of the shipping

Gwen said...

I have a similar infinity scarf. Sometimes I worry that I have too much animal print. Is that possible? I love your outfit. I'm kind of obsessing over vests lately.

Carly said...

Yayyyyyyy love this series! Glad it's back!

Love that outfit and the scarf immediately caught my attention! So glad it's from Express for less than $20 and not a ridiculously expensive one. Think I'm gonna buy myself an early Christmas present ;-)

Kayla MKOY said...

Omggg that scarf, that bow bracelet...I'm dying. I NEEEEED!

Danielle said...

A few weeks ago, I paced around Old Navy, pondering whether or not I should buy this exact puffer vest (in the very same color), and I left it, sad and alone, on the rack. (I was taking home too many of its friends to justify it.) I'm seriously questioning my judgment thanks to you, Shanna!

Mary Leigh said...

Love this whole outfit! Hoping to get a puffer vest soon!

FitTravelerAJ said...

I already own a leopard scarf, but not a leopard infinity scarf. But now there is a dilemma...which color?! I'm thinking both ;-)

Those Nine West riding boots are awesome. My mom has been on the hunt for some in that color, and those might be perfect!
