As bummed as I am that summer is nearing its end, I'm very much ready for fall to get here. Not only because I have an itch to stock up on sweaters and boots again, but also because I want to wear my new leopard print shirt every day without having to worry about ruining it with humidity and sweat.
I've been on the hunt for this exact shirt for a while, but I never seemed to find one that both looked right and fell within an affordable price range. Luckily, a recent trip to & Other Stories has finally ended my long search, and judging from the increasing amount of previously acquired button-down blouses from the Swedish retailer, I should've only assumed that it would have the top I've always been looking for.
What makes this particular version fit the bill is that it's slightly oversize in fit, and the collar is petite and pointy — but not too pointy. The leopard print's light beige background makes it look chic rather than gaudy, so I'll feel extra-fancy pairing this shirt with a leather skirt, cropped trousers or even a pair of vintage jeans. As you can tell, I'm very excited to put this new purchase to good use... and I'm also very tempted to buy a pair of matching trousers, too.
& Other Stories "Leo" Shirt, $85, available at Stories.com.
