Leopard blouse makes it's debut

Happy Friday dear ladies!
First outing for the leopard blouse and it looks like our weather is going to clear up! Yay!
leopard blouse JCrew
levi demi-curve black skinnies
taupe shooties
coral jacket
red earrings
gold watch
Poppy raincoat
orange purse

I tried a black belt with it but couldn't decide whether I like it or not so I opted not to belt. Opinions please?

    No belt! No other suggestions except tear the tags off, wear it and HAVE A GREAT DAY In your new blouse. Fabberiffiicccc!!

    That is one fantastic blouse and you are going to have loads of fun with it. The jacket works great with or without the belt, I think i like it better sans belt, though.

    Oh Meredith, you look beautiful! Perfectly styled. I too like the simplicity of it without the belt. You have such a good eye!

  • Kirti replied 8 years ago

    No belt pls! You look FAB! :-)

    Argh - just got logged out of YLF and lost my reply :-(

    BUT this is a great, chic styling of your leopard shirt! I definitely prefer it without the belt so it can give you the long, lean column look!

    Perfect proportions between the shirt and jacket, and the whole top with the skinnies :-)

    Wowza, Meredith! This is a great look for you (definitely go sans belt). I haven't always had time to comment lately, but I've noticed how exceptionally stylish you are these days. Looking good, lady!

    And you're making me really want one of those JCrew leopard blouses...

    Four words: Bee you tee full!!

    I like it best without the belt for the reasons MNsara said -- you look like one tall drink of water!! LOVE!!

    Another vote for no belt - this is a gorgeous combination on you Meredith! Fab purchase in that blouse!

  • ManidipaM replied 8 years ago

    Oh goodness me! You HAVE to have those spotted booties to go with this. Fab times fab! leopard and brights are so wonderful together...

  • Kiwichik replied 8 years ago

    Hooray for the leopard

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    You have made me feel so good about this purchase and much more confident wearing it. I think the shirt can be dressed up with a skirt and heels or dressy pants and heels, or down with jeans and boots.

  • Parsley replied 8 years ago

    I *LOVE* this outfit on you! I think it would look really great with your peep toe shoes, too!
    Definitely without the belt looks better. Have you tried letting the cuffs of the blouse peek out and fold back over the jacket sleeves?

    You look great!

  • Mona replied 8 years ago

    THis is a great blouse. You look so pretty as always.

  • amyreh replied 8 years ago

    You have given me an idea to layer something colorful over my leopard blouse, what a fab combo! I prefer unbelted.

  • catgirl replied 8 years ago

    leave off the belt. Nice way to add more color - you look terrrrrrrific (say that with a growl!).

  • Beth Ann replied 8 years ago

    Amazing, Meredith! This is a great find (particularly unbelted). It will be versatile and it's suits your vibrant, but unfussy look!

  • Angie replied 8 years ago

    Fantastic! A really great outfit :)

  • JennyAnne replied 8 years ago

    No belt is definitely lengthening you more. Really pretty with the bright jacket! A great outfit.

  • Deborah replied 8 years ago

    Gorgeous outfit! Love the blouse and you don't need the belt. This is just stunning.

  • christieanne replied 8 years ago

    Really fabulous! Love your bold new direction :)

  • kac replied 8 years ago

    another option for the leopard blouse is to wear it partially buttoned like a cardigan with a white tank and white jeans/pants ..long gold necklace and/or gold bangles ....it easily transitions into warmere weather :)

  • Sylvie replied 8 years ago

    I like the booties/blouse bookending you have going on there. I prefer the outfit without the belt - the belt just seems to add extra "fussiness" and stops the eye.
