Merry Christmas Eve! I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season! Since it is Sunday I wanted to share one of my favorite outfits that is perfect for this Christmas season. I also just wanted to take a moment and say thank you for all your support on my latest blog post and Instagram post. It means the world to have your love, support and hear all of your stories. Thank you so much.


I have been searching for the perfect leopard print coat for a long time, but could never quite find one that was the perfect fit for me. So I kept my eyes open and had it on my long list of ‘wishlist items.’ As I was going through Forever 21 a couple weeks ago I happened to find this leopard print coat! It was normally $50 and just happened to be on sale for 50% off. When I find items like that I know it can’t be a coincidence. Especially when it was the perfect length and fit me like a glove. 

So I ended up buying the coat for $25! Which was an absolute steal! I couldn’t find the exact coat on the Forever 21 website, but I linked a couple of my favorite leopard print coats that don’t break the bank. When it comes to faux fur coats they can get pretty pricey, but luckily there are some amazing options out there that are fairly inexpensive. You just have to keep your eyes open and be patient.

Between this coat for $25, and this red pleated dress that I found on the H&M sale rack for $10, I got this holiday outfit for $35! Totaling everything to be under $100 (excluding the bag)! 

If you have noticed for the past week on my InstagramI have been loving the combination of red with my favorite 'holiday animal print.' I love the look of these two paired together. I wore it to a holiday dinner last week with my family, as well as this combination on Sunday. This jacket is the perfect classic piece to add to my wardrobe and I can't wait to wear it for years to come. Even though it may seem like a piece that not everyone would go for, animal print can be a 'transition piece', or act as a 'neutral.' It just pairs with so many colors and palettes that it can be worn with a variety of shades.

A leopard print coat adds the perfect flair to any outfit, and can add that glam we've all been searching for. I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas, and after reading this post can add a leopard print coat to your wishlist as well! 

Merry Christmas!
