Twinning in Leopard Print

Well, that’s the Summer holidays done! Isobel started her last year at primary school today. She’s certainly growing up fast…and showing a keen interest in fashion. Whenever I’m about to do outfit photos she asks what I’m wearing and wants to join in. I certainly couldn’t say no when she emerged from her room in this getup! (She did raid “Blog HQ” for some of my accessories).

We’re twinning in leopard print, although I think Isobel has outdone me in the style stakes!

I’ll probably have to get used to her “borrowing” my stuff; I can’t really blame her – if my mum had had the amount of clothes and accesories I have, I’d have been exactly the same. We do share similar tastes, particularly when it comes to colours and prints. We’re twinning in leopard print, although I think Isobel has outdone me in the style stakes! (You can see more of her outfit further down the post).

My somewhat less flamboyant outfit features a couple of recent purchases, both bargains. You probably know by now that I’m a huge fan of Fabienne Chapot – a brand I discovered via the-Bias-Cut.com. (My peach print and lobster print dresses are among my favourite outfits). Ever the bargain hunter, I frequently check eBay for new listings, and that’s how I managed to snag this leopard print shirt for just £18. It’s a size small but fits perfectly (I’m not keen on loose fitting shirts that billow).

The fabric is a linen blend, so they’re lightweight but not too prone to creasing.

Leopard print goes with just about any colour, but I love to pair it with bright hues. Cue my new Mint Velvet emerald green trousers. I bought them from Brand Alley (reduced from £89 to £29), but they are available from Mint Velvet direct for the same price. The fabric is a linen blend, so they’re lightweight but not too prone to creasing. I’d been looking for a pair of bright green wide legged trousers for ages so I was very happy to find these at less than half price.

I added some really old leopard print court shoes (which you can just about see under the trousers) and yet more leopard with a crossbody bag I bought in France.

I love the quirky buttons on Fabienne Chapot shirts – this one has elephant buttons.

Isobel’s outfit

I bought this leopard print co-ord for Isobel from River Island in the January sales. The boots are also from River Island, and match perfectly. I’m usually reluctant to buy her too many shoes because kids’ feet grow so fast. But she’s getting to the age where fashion matters, and given my shoe obsession, I can’t really criticise her for following suit!

Isobel could have joined in the Match Made in Seven Ode to Iris Apfel challenge dressed like this!

To give credit to her, she put this outfit together all by herself. She’s been asking for these sunglasses ever since I bought them (I haven’t even worn them yet!) so I caved and let her have them. Isobel could have joined in the Match Made in Seven Ode to Iris Apfel challenge dressed like this! The bag and headband are also mine, but I think I should probably consider them as under dual ownership now! The first of many no doubt!

    There is a plus side of Isobel borrowing your pieces …. when she’s older and buying her own, you can borrow hers – works for me and my girls :-)) Great looking outfits. Liking leopard print. Jacqui

    Animal print is set to be even more on trend this year I think. If that’s possible! I love the shirt and I really like your sunglasses Emma. Tell Isobel she’s fierce competition! xx

  3. You both look amazing in leopard! Dying over your matching bag and here sunnies are so fun. Thanks for the link up!

    Your daughter is so fabulous! I love the different ways you’ve styled the print, but I give a slight edge to her double-leopard ensemble 😉

  6. Emma, as much as I love your outfit, the combination of leopard with that beautiful shade of green, I have to tell you that Isobel may have stolen the show here! How fabulous is she! She has nailed it on the accessories, too. I would totally wear both of your outfits!

    Love leopard prints in all shapes and forms. But pairing with the mint green trousers was brilliant! Also, am drooling over that bag. Isobel looks absolutely smashing. Love those glasses. I’m sure Iris would be tickled pink to know she inspired your blossoming fashionista!

  8. Your twinning outfits are adorable! I love how amazing animal print looks with mint green. I’m stealing that idea 😉

    I love your combo of emerald green and leopard! It really pops! And your daughter is adorable. I love her individuality. Future–or maybe current!–fashionista, for sure! Lol! You should put her on our Match Made in Seven Pinterest board!!
