Red Skinnies and Leopard

I got daring recently and paired leopard print with red-hot skinny jeans. The shirt is loose so it balances out the painted-on fit of the pants.

Top: Old Navy
Pants: Red Light Vintage
Shoes: Old Navy
Cuff: Lauren Harkness

It’s hard to believe I got this top at Old Navy. It doesn’t seem like the type of thing they’d sell. Perhaps that’s why it was in the clearance section. It’s sheer too, and since women over 40 aren’t supposed to wear this sort of scandalous attire, well, I had to! (Of course I don’t buy into notions of what women should or shouldn’t wear but I read about that sort of thing recently and wrote about it).

I wore this awesome Perry Ellis poncho over the top because it’s too cold in Seattle for sheer tops–at least in February. I picked it up at a clothing exchange recently.

  1. Very bold and the top works wonderfully with your hair!

  2. Love the top!! It does go well with your hair like dapperdolly said!

    You have never been one to conform; you set the style and make up your own rules!! Besides – over 40 does not apply to you because you look under 30 with a figure that teens would envy!! I like the fact that you taught me not to wear loose tops with loose bottoms (that’s such a frumpy look) or tight tops with tight bottoms (a sleazy look). The balance in this outfit is perfect, and I love the bold red with leopard print.

    Great for February: red to brighten up the last of the winter days!
