Mizzou Style | Leopard Scarf


Today I'm so excited to be launching a 4-part Mizzou Style series with two other fabulous bloggers: Elle of Living in Color Style and Jacqueline of Stylin' in St. Louis! We all happen to be Mizzou alumni, so of course football season is a big deal. This weekend is Homecoming for Mizzou (cool fact: Mizzou is actually considered 'the birthplace of Homecoming'), so it was the perfect time to kick off our Mizzou Style series with some black and gold looks :)

 Sweater: GAP (just sold out | similar here, here) | Jeans: H&M (50% off) | Boots: Vince Camuto via Sole Society (more options below) | Jacket: Forever 21 (old | similar here, here) | Scarf: Sole Society (nearly identical) | Bag: H&M (similar) | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Black & gold bracelet: House of Harlow 1960 | Watch: Fossil | Lips: Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in 'Crush'

For my first Mizzou Style look I wanted to show an outfit I actually wore to a game a couple of weeks ago! A simple black sweater is a closet essential in my book, and pairs perfectly with a leopard scarf for a chic bit of 'gold.' I went with a leather bomber jacket and my over-the-knee boots for some warmth, and then of course had to have sunglasses for the game.

I hope you enjoy our new series and that you check out Elle and Jacqueline's posts as well! Have a great weekend :)

Nothing is Stronger Than Love

 Tee: Life is Good c/o (size medium) | Jeans: H&M ('denim blue') | Booties: Steve Madden (old | similar) | Bag: H&M (similar) | Watch: Fossil | Bracelets: Lily and Laura (many options here) | Lips: Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in 'Crush'

Today I have a special post for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in partnership with Life is Good! My tee is part of their new Beauty in the Battle collection, and the awesome part about it is that they're donating 100% of net profits from this collection to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, which contributes to both research and care. I love when something I own and wear can serve a greater purpose, and with 3 family friends fighting or recovering from breast cancer currently, this cause is one that's been weighing on my heart lately.

Thanks for reading!

Casual Spots

 Cardigan: H&M (love this one! more here and here) // Jeans: H&M in 'denim blue' (similar) // Tank: J.Crew Factory // Flats: Franco Sarto via TJ Maxx (similar) // Hat: Sole Society // Bag: H&M (similar) // Necklace: boutique find (similar) // Watch: Fossil // Bracelets: Margaret Elizabeth, Lily and Laura // Lips: Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in 'Crush' 

Today I'm wearing a new favorite casual outfit that is definitely becoming one of my go-to's. I'd wanted a leopard cardigan for ages but wanted one that was more subtle, so this one was the perfect solution. Unfortunately it's no longer online but I've linked to some really cute similar ones above and below.

I have to be honest and say that I styled a different outfit around this cardigan that I had planned to post yesterday... It was one of those situations where I came up with the idea a few weeks ago and wrote it down and then didn't have time to actually try it on before packing it up for photos after work (terrible idea)...and let me tell ya...it was disastrous (way too much black)! I hate when an outfit seems awesomely chic and fashion-forward in your head and then ends up making you look like a total weird-o haha. Anywho, I scrapped that post and posted a day late in order to post an outfit I actually love! And hopefully you agree that it was worth it :)
