Leopard Print Scarves, Knits, Skinny Jeans and Balenciaga Bags

When I'm feeling uninspired in winter I reach for cosy layers and jeans. Of course I still want to keep things interesting - that's where my bright scarves come in, to add an extra something to an otherwise simple outfit of a knit and skinny jeans.

What I wore:

Why I wore it:

You may notice a slight difference in this photo - or you might not! Being in such a rush in the morning, I didn't get a moment to grab my outfit photos like I usually do. I ended up taking photos when I got home in the afternoon. After I'd visited the priceline pop up store and had false lashes applied for the first time.


The lashes felt weird. I went home with a goodie bag (including more false lashes) but I'm not sure I'd be able to apply them again myself, as easy as the lovely lady made it look! Still, fun to try something different.


My outfit was designed to keep me warm as it was such a cold day, so polka dot foil knit with skinny jeans and tall boots. I felt that the neon leopard print scarf worked nicely with the polka dots and added a bit of colour to my outfit, as I had my black Balenciaga part time bag. It was nice to spend an hour or two kid free (and I picked up a couple of Christmas presents for the boys!) while hubby took the boys to swim lessons. I really liked this outfit, as simple as it is.

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the outfit formula in the first outfit so much, I repeated a similar one again a few days later. I realised I hadn't worn this beautiful ombre knit yet this winter, so felt it was time to give it a wear. I stuck with black skinny jeans again to keep things simple, but unlike the first outfit I added a colourful bag with my colourful leopard print scarf. I thought the purple leopard scarf and pink Balenciaga city bag were fun pops against the otherwise neutral outfit.

I was surprised to see that I hadn't worn this scarf and knit together before, I've worn and loved the ombre knit with my purple skinny jeans in the past.

This knit is an open knit, so I layered a long sleeve tee underneath to keep me cosy. This was the perfect outfit for a morning with the boys at my ABA Mother's group, and then a quick grocery shop afterwards.

How You Can Wear It:

Neutral outfits are easy to default to in winter. You can add colour to them with fun scarves like these leopard print ones. You don't have to stick to plain kints when you wear them either - the leopard print works well with the ombre and the polka dots. For an extra pop of colour you could do what I did in the second outfit and introduce another colour through a bright handbag.

  4. Loving these looks, the scarfs are so cute and look very cosy! :) I too am on the fence about false lashes... I think that they look absolutely amazing, but do feel weird plus I am terrible at actually applying them! Thanks for sharing, lovely. <3 xoxo

  6. Skinny jeans and tall boots are probably what I wear most during the winter months. At least you've got lots of colorful scarves to break things up and add lots of visual interest.

  7. Love the two outfits, Mica. I want that ombre knit!:D And both the scarves are such great accents to the outfits.
    PS The lashes look fab on you. They enhance your eyes just right and not in such an over-the-top way!

  8. The false lashes look so cute! The do feel strange at first but I usually find I get used to them after a couple of hours and forget they're even there. Loving the beautiful colors of your scarves, too.

  10. Bright scarves and bags are such a fun and stylish way to infuse some color into any outfit. I'm the same way with false lashes. They look nice but often feel odd to me and I'm not so good about applying them.

  17. Hi Mica
    I've never tryed false eyelashes. Looks like you had fun with it.
    I love animal print, it always gives that special touch and some how feline to a woman. I liked your more relaxed look with the sneakers.
    I hope you have a great week.


    Much love

  21. False lashes are tricky to apply and require a lot of practice, something I don't have either. They do make a huge difference though, even the more natural looking ones.

  23. I love both of those leopard print scarves, Mica! I especially love the first pink neon one! It's so pretty! Both of your jumpers are fab too: pretty and cosy! I tried false lashes about 10 years ago and they looked ridiculous on me! I almost glued my eyelids shut! Ha!;) Hope you're having a great week. XXX

  24. Looooove a good leopard print and the scarves are so colourful! The pink Balenciaga bag is such a cute pop of colour too. The lashes look fab - but I agree, I've had them on before and they feel a little weird! Possibly a bit much for a SAHM :D

  27. I think false lashes look nice on you, in that photo they don't seem like too much at all. Moreover, these outfits are lovely. That leopard scarf is such a fun pop of colour and print.

    I do agree that neutral outfits are easy to style...and dress up and down. Have a lovely day!

  29. You look amazing in skinny jeans. And I especially like that beautiful gray sweater with the foiled detail and the lovely marked yarn. I have been getting eyelash extensions on and off for the last year, and I like the way they open up my eyes. But they do take some getting used to. Have a great weekend.

  30. Hi Mica, your lashes look natural and cute! As always, I adore your collection of scarves.The print is so fun and it compliments both looks beautifully. Oh, I love the boots too. I hope I get a chance to wear boots this winter.

    I pray you are having a great week!
