I am not one for a big, bold pattern, but I made an exception when I saw this leopard print fleece on a mannequin in J.Crew. (Take 30% off online with code JANUARY.)
This year, I decided I was going to get back to my roots and have a little more fun with fashion. I found myself missing my pre-kids days when I LOVED clothes and getting dressed up more than anything.
Leopard Print Fleece from J.Crew
This was just the piece to update my “mom uniform” of leggings and a sweatshirts, or workout gear even on days when I didn’t hit the gym.
It’s playful, yet practical (washes well), and gives a nod to the the girl I was before life became so heavy and serious.
I keep it basic, with a simple tee or tank underneath and my favorite “Live-In” Leggings by Zella.
I picked up these black Adidas sneakers earlier this year. They are light as air and perfect for daily wear. While I went with the black option, I’m still considering grabbing another pair in the white and gold for the spring.
Leopard Print Fleece in Real Life
If leopard print is too much for you, this ivory colored half zip is fantastic. I bought it last year and wear it all the time.
My house is freezing, so this was the perfect thing to throw on over jeans in the house or office. It’s a nice weight for a mild day outside, taking the baby for a walk, or running to the gym.
I feature a lot of J.Crew on the site because they are one of the few mainstream retailers that offer a size-inclusive scale. One of the most challenging aspects of the content creating piece of my business is finding items I’m confident in recommending AND are accessible to all of my readers.
I can’t tell you how many times I scrap an idea because I can’t give options at scale.
Luckily, J.Crew is not only inclusive but readily available, and their quality has significantly improved over the years.
