My style has always been what you might consider to be “casual chic.” I love basics like jeans, tank/tee with a nice pop thanks to a printed jacket, statement jewels or killer heels.

So when it comes to pulling a weekend look together that’s fashionable and functional, I stick with a basic formula I know will work well. This week I rocked a few thrifted garments with affordable, comfortable pieces from Hanes.

The pros certainly outweigh the cons and it’s worth trying this eternal trend. Here’s how to wear leopard in the workplace.

“Designer” on a Dime – leopard print wedge

I’m a sucker for anything leopard print, so imagine the shoegasm I experienced when I came across this wedge from Nina Shoes at Kitty Bradshaw’s Blogiversary. The four inch pony hair wedge was super soft and would look great with a mini or skinny jeans.

The wedge is kinda similar to Giuseppe Zanotti’s Casha wedge. However, the $1,428 price tag is insane. And it doesn’t look too practical if you actually plan on walking in them.

Luckily, Nina Shoes’ Yaneli is now available for pre-order. It’s $109.95 and if you use promo code KITTY, you get 20% off.
