I finally tracked down the Coral leopard scarf I’d been dreaming about ever since the Spring 2014 preview.

The scarves were on Buy One Get One 50% off, so it would have been rude not to pick up a brown leopard friend for my coral scarf! I love how voluminous they are – I like my scarves to look fluffy, not stringy – and these drape easily and stay ‘puffed up’ all day. Another lucky find was this classic charcoal grey cowlneck sweater in the clearance section – it was marked down from around $60 to $17.99! I sized up because I wanted a slouchy, over-sized sweater to pair with my H&M faux leather leggings.

I purchased my leather-look leggings from H&M before Christmas, but it took me a while to figure out what to wear them with. I was worried that the faux leather would look too shiny or cheap . However, when they are paired with the right fabrics, they add an interesting texture to a simple outfit. And as a bonus – they’re also super warm!

I wore my coral scarf on a slushy winter’s day (thus the chunky snow boots). I think this coral scarf is my new favorite item – it adds such a pop of brightness to dull winter outfits.

I paired my classic leopard scarf with a chambray shirt and the faux leather leggings. If I have to recommend one must-have purchase this month, it’s this scarf. It’s such a classic piece, and everyone needs a little leopard in their life!

While we’re on the subject of scarves, my Forever21 order arrived – and I absolutely love the plaid scarf. I ordered it recently from the Canadian site but it’s not there anymore. They often re-stock popular items – so it may come back. I wish I could say my whole F21 order was successful – but sadly the ruffled tunic (which looked coral in pictures) is actually a garish fluorescent shade…and unfortunately it’s final sale! The perils of online sale shopping….
Are you a leopard print fan? Do you own any leopard scarves?
