Cat Burglar

If I were a cat burglar, a la Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises, this is what I would wear:

Sweater: Equipment; Pants: JCrew
I felt so sleek and cool today! I bought this leopard print Equipment sweater a few months ago after I had waited a solid month for it to end up in stores. I paired it with my JCrew Minnie pants, which are completely amazing in that they're comfortable and stylish and appropriate for work. 

Watch: Michael Kors
Seriously, I walked outside my house and felt like Audrey Hepburn playing the role of a cat burglar. 

Shoes: Kate Spade (old)
I paired the two with these cap toe Kate Spade flats.  I bought them a few years ago because I thought they were a perfect work and play shoe... and they're tan with black, which goes with essentially everything in my wardrobe. 

Earrings: Kate Spade
I also decided to wear these new Kate Spade earrings I recently bought.  I love that they're bows, but also that they're a little edgier with their streamlined lines a pyramid stud in the center.

I thought I'd finish with a close-up of the front of the sweater... yep it's only leopard on the front! The sleeves and back and finely knit wool, and the front is leopard print silk. Seriously THE softest silk. Equipment is such a great company, as they sell classic button-ups and funner, trendier pieces like this one, but everything is absolutely amazing quality. I also just love leopard print for the fall.  It goes perfectly with richer, fall appropriate jewel tones like burgundy, and also adds a little spice to more traditional pieces like riding boots. So try out a sweater or a scarf! 

Until next time,
