Outfit: Burgundy Leather Jacket and a Crushed Velvet Top Layered Over a Leopard Print Dress

I picked up this crushed velvet crop top from Forever 21 a few weeks ago with a birthday gift card. I couldn't resist its delightful crushed velvety-ness! I actually had a dress in almost this exact same fabric but it was way too large in the shoulders and bust so I gave it to my sister. This crop top fits perfectly though! For its debut I layered it over a leopard print high-low dress I got at Target a couple years ago. Layering crop tops over dresses is a great way to remix your dresses without adding a lot of bulk. This was kind of a perfect way to make this dress work for fall since it has spaghetti straps. I added my burgundy leather jacket for extra warmth even though I wore this before that big cold front blew down here.

I just realized that this is the third outfit post in a row featuring leopard print. I'm sorry for leopard overload! I promise I don't wear it every day. These just happen to be the outfits I got pictures of recently.

So how has your week been? I can't believe it's already Friday! I have a busy weekend ahead with a birthday party for Dad today and a Georgia football game tomorrow. Then it's Thanksgiving week! So there'll be plenty of delicious food in the upcoming days. I'm pretty excited about that. 

Anyway, I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

I love the color of that top! Everything you wear matches your hair wonderfully.

I love the rich colors in this outfit! I do that with blogging sometimes too--because I don't always post what I wear on the day that I wear it. Like today I realized I had three posts in a week with the same jacket. Woops! At any rate, I love leopard print so it's a win as far as I'm concerned!

Nothing wrong with leopard, it's a great print and it looks good on you! I can't believe it's Friday either... this week really went by fast!

The blue and burgundy look so beautiful together and the textures add some extra charm, too! x

I've been wanting some layering pieces for a while and I'm really to cropped jumpers to go over dresses. I never really though of cropped tops too, might have to see what I can find :)

Don't apologize for the leopard madness- you look great in leopard print! You know what? I use crop tops as layering pieces too-- and they end up being as long as "normal" top length for me!
