Frozen Leopard with Leather

This week is just dragging - and I have such fun things planned for the weekend that's it's just torture. Why is it not Friday yet?
Meow! Leopard is probably my favourite pattern of all time. And I'm pretty sure y'all know I have a thing for leather, especially skirts.

This is the second wear of this leopard top, which was first seen here in May, layered under a jacket.
I belted it so that I'd have something to hang my access cards and keys from for work (always a factor in my outfits - I loathe wearing a fricking lanyard), but now you can see it in all its glory.

Full confession: I wore a jean jacket over this for half the day. I was freezing (we've gone from roasty-toasty weather to rain and chilly temps), and I did feel a little too "boobalicious" in it without a jacket or cover. Don't get my wrong, I like my boobs, but I sit at a desk where people stand over me - here, would you like a better view of my cleavage?
I'm never self-conscious about my ink, though!

My glorious black leather skirt has had multiple wears, last time here in April in an outfit I ended up hating.

The stuff:
I decided against the extra va-va-voom factor of heels, and went with flats. I am glad I did, as I ended up working an hour of overtime tonight. I last wore these studded flats here a couple of Fridays ago with a long dress.

Dragon bling!
My awesome dragon necklace and bracelet, and some simple aqua studs. Oh, and a belt.

Top (Express, thrifted), skirt (Hemingway, vintage 80s, consignment), shoes (Modern Vintage, thrifted), belt (Plum), necklace/earrings (gift from L, vintage 30s?), earrings (local).

  6. It's Thursday now, only one more day to go. Leopard and leather - I can't think of better crutches to get you to the end of the week, unless you're wearing something more fabulous today.
