Clothed with Grace: Coral and Leopard

Coral and Leopard

 Well, another Monday is here. I had a nice, relaxing weekend. Saturday Grant and I went to the library, then Saturday night Brian and I went to a charity event. Sunday we went to church then I spent Sunday afternoon watching The Walking Dead while Grant took a long nap. Of all the shows out, I have to love the zombie one that gives me nightmares. Awesome. There's just something about the characters and their post apocalyptic lives that has my eyes glued to the screen.

 Sunday night I got together with my girlfriends for small group, which is the best treat. This week at school marks the end of the first quarter, which is crazy!

As for today's outfit, I recently got this J.Crew blazer from thredUP for a steal and it looks brand new. It's actually more coral than orange, like it looks here.  I thought I'd try it today with my leopard scarf and this fun top from Old Navy.  I love how it turned out and I think it has a lot of fun possibilities for this fall and winter.

If you haven't tried thredUP you can sign up here and get $10 off your first purchase.  Seriously you guys, I have gotten some of the most amazing pieces for next to nothing!

Blazer: J.Crew (via thredUP) similar
Scarf: boutique similar
Top: Old Navy
 Bracelets: chloe + isabel c/o samesame 
Jeans: Joe's Jeans similar
Shoes: Aerosoles same

Being this blazer does look a bit orange today, I thought I'd share a graphic I created last year again.  Orange can be great for fall, but know how to wear it can be tricky!  I love it with neutral colors, but it can be great with complementary colors too.  


  1. I so love the color of your blazer, and that scarf is perfect with it!

  2. Cute! I am addicted to ThreadUp too! I have never shopped for blazers though!! I will check that out today! Susan

  3. What a great thredUp find! I have been selling some clothes through them but haven't purchased anything. If I had seen that blazer, though...I think I would have!

  4. This outfit looks pretty... I like your coat color and the bracelets you wear..

  5. I love to wear my leopard scarf with a coral cardi from old navy, I feel like ti gives a bit of sass to an understated look.

  6. I love the herringbone detail in the blazer. Great look!

  7. That is such a pretty colored blazer! It really brightens up the whole look. I really need to check out thredUp! ~Cynthia

  9. Very cute! I've never heard of ThredUp but I must check it out now!


    PS - don't forget to enter my giveaway for a pair of monogram earrings!

  10. That blazer is awesome! I love the texture on the fabric. My husband loves Walking Dead. The few minutes I've seen of it (I just can't do gore-- like ever) it seems to be quite dramatic and well written. Everyone had such a jam packed weekend!

  11. What a great blazer! It's super cute on you!

  12. LOVE this outfit! And thanks for the color palette ideas!

  13. Wow, what a great ThredUp find! You look great in that color. It's been a while since I last made a ThredUp order--maybe they'll magically have another blazer just like yours?! Ha!

  14. That herringbone coral blazer is gorgeous and pairs so well with the dark leopard. Pretty ballet flats, also.

  15. As a Florida Gator, orange + blue is my favorite combination... but orange and leopard is a close second :) Looking great as always!
