Leopard Coats for Women for a Casual Day

3 Generations of Leopard coats for Women

Leopard Coats for Women for a Casual Day

Quote of the day: “Care about people’s approval and you will be their prisoner.” Laozi

The leopard coats for women trend is going strong everywhere you look. And even if you have a vintage one in your closet, they work just as well for a dressy occasion as they do for a casual day.

And recently I read an article that older women should wear animal prints in moderation. It made me shake my head in disbelief. Because why would the age of the woman even matter to the print of the coat? A great leopard jacket is a fabulous way to stand out and be noticed. We should all want that (at least most days–ha ha)

Rita of Not Only Twenty: I also wanted to showcase a photo that Rita shared with me on my Facebook page after she saw us wearing our leopard coats.

She’s almost 60 and I love that she’s embracing the leopard coats for women also!

Jodie’s (50+) Outfit: I will admit that I tend to want to pair red with leopard prints as a contrast.

I gave the history of all our leopard coats in our dress up version post. But if you missed it, this baby was a Poshmark purchase.

Because of this I almost pulled out my red jeans, but my desire to wear these new red boots was stronger. Sure, I could have worn my red jeans and the red boots together, but then you wouldn’t notice the boots as much. And they are my recent favorites.

I also picked up this beret recently. My love of hats know no bounds lately, and the advantage of a beret is they can be packed in a suitcase for travel. They are also relative inexpensive as you can witness with this red one, black one, or even leopard one.

I’ve really been enjoying thrift shopping more and more since I’ve been co-hosting the #thriftedchicstylechallenge on Instagram.

I picked up the buffalo plaid shirt from our local store, The Paper Chandelier, when I had my birthday rewards. The best thing is they have started to sell some of their items online too. And the red purse was a second hand find a couple of years ago from Goodwill.

Truth be known, my husband has never been a huge secondhand store fan.  However, now that we are retired, he appreciates the deals a little more. It’s amazing what a large group of women you can find on Instagram that concentrate on showing their preloved purchases.

Let me also point out my newest hand knit creation. You may have seen it flat in my sentence a day post for December, but here it is on me. I’m very happy that I’ve been seeing fair isle sweaters making a comeback in the retail stores. Not that I wouldn’t wear this anyways, but how perfect for me to actually have one of my sweaters be in style.

I’ve always loved the fair isle design, as it reminds me of when the style was so popular when I was in college. Of course, if you haven’t kept your sweaters from those eras, then here’s one or here’s another that may be your new best friend.

Nancy’s (60+) Outfit: I love how Nancy chose to wear the color blue under her leopard coat.

We showed the fabulous blue lining in the dress up version already, but we had to show it again below. I think it’s a perfect example of how the leopard coats for women are really a neutral and can combine with almost every other color out there.

Leopard coats for Women as vintage style

In the winter we tend to reach more for scarves to decorate our neckline, but I have to admit that statement necklaces are still going strong. The best part is you can purchase some wonderful, fun ones for very little money. For example, if you want to make a statement with fringe, neutral flowers, or colored stones, you have quite a choice out there.

Nancy purchased the earrings to match this necklace, but they were even longer at first. They had those blue leather pieces hanging off the ends, so we just removed them. Sometimes it’s the simplest things that can make items work for us, don’t you think?

The ankle boots here are from a shopping expedition back when I first started the blog.

I thought Nancy would get some great wear from them because they would go with her jeans so easily. I’ve talked about how it’s good to have the basic colors for our ankle boots like black and brown, but it’s also fun to have a not so basic color too.

Our local boutique, Trendz, which we’ve featured a couple of times on the blog was the resource for Nancy’s sweater and leggings. I actually wore the green version in the fall fashion style show, and it came with the hand warmers.

If you’re anything like me, then you used to wonder at the function of hand warmers. It’s usually my fingers that end up getting cold, and so how could these items be beneficial? Well, when we were shopping in Frisco, I finally figured out that you could layer these hand warmers over some plain gloves. Then you have 2 layers to keep you warm, and some prettiness over your plain gloves. Just call me a layering fool!

Just in case this layering of hand warmers idea is tickling your fancy, I found some really pretty ones available. There’s a red pair, a black & white pair and a print pair that would all look great over a black pair of gloves.

Charlotte’s (80+) Outfit: It’s always amazing to me how my mom is so open to a certain style before it becomes trendy.

Take the leopard coats for women for example. She’s had her coat for over 8 years and it’s even a souvenir from her Turkey trip.

This specific coat is a reversible one, which I think is so advantageous for so many reasons. My mom does say, that the leopard part is hard to put on over knit items because of the texture. But how smart to have 2 coats in one.

Because of this, I had to research if there are many of these types of coats for sale, and if they are affordable. I found a couple that were interesting. There’s the furry version, the quilted version, a kimono version, a pink version, and a long version. I could see how this would be so functional if you have limited coat closet space, or if you travel a bunch.

Now let’s talk about my mom’s accessories.

As the matchy, matchy person that she is, she did put on her leopard gloves. Now even though they are a different color of leopard print, I think the gloves blend in with her darker pants.

Truthfully, what I really love is the pop of color with the yellow purse. As someone who has only started experimenting with different purses for different outfits, I’ve been amazed at how much fun it is to either match or contrast the purse.

Considering that most of us don’t consider what coat we will be wearing when we are getting dressed, I love that my mom didn’t “match” her outfit under the leopard coat.

I’m curious to know, how you all choose the coat you end up wearing for the day? Do you try to match to your outfit? I know, I take into account how heavy my coat is, but I also think about what colors I’m wearing.

  • You all look amazing in leopard print! I love your beret and red boots…oh and your hand-knitted sweater is gorgeous! I love that your mom’s coat is reversible – now that’s a wardrobe space saver! I’m a big fan of handwarmers because they are easier to drive with. Thanks for linking up!

    Emma xxx

    • Leopard is so fun…and anything reversible just seems brilliant to me too, Emma!!

  • Leopard is such an easy print to wear. I love that you all are wearing it for a more casual look!


    • It is such a vintage and fabulous print, Ruth!!!

  • Julie

    I love this leopard print on you all…so stylish! I have to say, red accessories look great with it!

    • Thanks so much Julie!!
      The red really stands out, doesn’t it? But I’m trying to wear it with other colors too!!

  • You ladies really know how to put an outfit together, Jodie! I don’t know how you keep up with all the trends and fashions and then get all the fantastic photos for your posts. You are a dynamic team! Love the red with your outfit but they were all adorable.

    • Thanks so much Molly!!
      We have to give my hubby credit for these great shots of us…he’s the most patient person out there, because when we take photos there’s lot of laughing and talking going on also….

  • So wonderful ladies.
    I love leopard Jodie.

    Much Love, Jane | The Bandwagon Chic
    New Vlog Entry!

  • You ladies are rocking leopard! Leopard print is timeless and for any age (leopards had that figured out thousands of years ago). Leopard is neutral, goes with any colour but I particularly like red with it. I love my thrifted leopard coat. The import thing is FAUX! 🙂



    • Absolutely faux…and aren’t they so fun, Carmen???

  • Jacqueline Rendine

    Love a great leopard coat! So perfect!

    Stylin In St. Louis

    • I remember that you have a fabulous one too, Jacqueline!! I think they really are such a fun statement coat for the winter months!!

  • Sue Loncaric

    I love a leopard print Jodie. Unfortunately I have to restrict to accessories or shoes as where I live in Brisbane, it never gets cold enough to wear coats! Thanks for sharing at #overthemoon link party and have a great week. x

    • That would bum me out, I think Sue!!
      But if you ever come visit me, I’ll let you wear this coat for fun and giggles!!!

  • As soon as I saw the title, I knew I would love this post! You’re all so delightful; I’m esp loving Nancy’s blue booties. Thanks for linking up, xo


    • They make for quite a sight to have all three of us together, huh??
      Thanks Patti!!

  • Gorgeous ladies, fabulous outfits, all look absolutely stunning, I truly love this amazing post. Thank you for sharing.



  • I love the shots against the red building! And your boots…you know that I’m totally drooling on my keyboard, right?! I often reach for red too when I’m sporting leopard. I’m not sure why because it works with absolutely everything!

    • It must be our vibrant personalities—red and leopard—kinda like peanut butter and jelly!!!

  • This is a great post. I love all three coats. Each of you has the right coat for yourself, your posture. The photos of the three of you against that red wall: brilliant. Magazine worthy.
    And yes I also like red or yellow with my leopard. I do bother with what I wear underneath my leopard coat. I am difficult in that.
    PS I didn’t know Rita will soon be 60. Gosh, she looks good.

    • Thanks so much Greetje!!
      I’m glad I’m not the only one who sometimes considers what I am wearing, and thus which coat too!!
      PS…I just “met” Rita—what a lovely woman!!!

  • Oh this is just magical with the three of you in leopard. The length of your coat, Jodie, is my favorite.

    • Thanks Carrie!!!
      It is amazing how certain coats seem to work with everything, and this is definitely one of those!!

  • You all look so cute in your leopard coats! I so need to get one in my closet!


    • They really are a fun coat and get a lot of attention!!
      Thanks Annessa!

  • Amy Kennedy

    Love this post! I am a sucker for the red with the leopard print too, and I love your boots and your bag! Great pictures and info!

  • I sure have been seeing a lot of leopard coats in the store this year. You gals all look so chic and cute in yours!

    • It’s funny how these coats have made such a comeback lately!!!
      Not that I need to have every trend that comes around, but since my mom already had hers, and Nancy found such a great one at the consignment store, I figured it would be perfect!!
      Thanks Amy!!

  • Theresa Campbell

    Every one of these outfits is taken to a whole new level of chicness with the addition of a leopard coat. I own a vintage one from the 60s, faux leopard that is. Being from Fl I don’t get to enjoy wearing it nearly enough!


    • That is the disadvantage of living in the warmer states, Theresa. Especially when it’s a vintage coat—that’s super cool!!!
      But feel free to come visit us anytime in the winter, and then you’ll definitely need it!!

  • Oh love that second last photo of the three of you, what a great shot! 🙂

    You all look so nice in your leopard print coats, and I know that’s what the post was about, but I’m loving your red studded boots! 🙂

    Hope that you are having a great weekend! Our weekend started early with a day off yesterday for Australia day. Good way to end the week!

    Away From The Blue Blog

    • Thanks for always being so positive Mica!! I love those boots too, so I can totally understand your comment…..in fact, I have to try NOT to wear them everyday…LOL!!
      Enjoy your weekend. We are going to a Sunday Jazz Brunch which should be fun!!

  • This is SO cute! I love all your leopard coats!!


  • Maureen O

    You can never have enough animal prints whether in the form of a coat, shoes or handbag. It’s such a timeless piece that it can be worn at any season or age. You all look very good with your coats and fashion knows no age. I am happy to see your different styles and how each your individuality come through.

    Maureen | http://www.littlemisscasual.com

    • Thanks so much for these fabulous words, Maureen!!
      I’m so glad to hear your voice about this!!

  • Imastounded

    Wait a sec…is your mom 80 now? Congrats! This is the only style blog I know of that shows such a diverse range of ages, and all are lovely.

    • My mom just turned the big 8-0, and isn’t she such a shining star??
      I think it’s absolutely fun to showcase so many different ages on the blog, because I truly believe that age is just a number!!

  • I love the photos of you all lined up on the red wall. So fabulous in your leopard! That quote about age is silly.

    Amy Ann
    Straight A Style

  • I love your quote – of being a prisoner to people’s approval. A pop of red with leopard – favorite of mine – and leopard can definitely be worn at any age – and not just in moderation. Your beautiful fair isle sweater (that you made!) – so happy they are making a comeback – a favorite of mine from eras back.

    • Thanks so much Lisa!!
      That quote is definitely something I need to keep in the front of my mind. I think so many times we get too caught up in what other’s think…

  • Marisa Cavaleiro

    All of you look fabulous… print animal is great in every age…
    Xoxo from Portugal


  • You fierce girls wearing leopard coats!
    Love all the coats but I love your mom’s yellow bag!!
    I think it’s adorable that she is open to all the trendy fashions and is willing to mix it up!

    Happy Friday friend!

    • You’re right Robin…we should all be open minded when it comes to clothes and styles. I think it keeps us young at heart!!

  • Esther

    The three of you really rock this look.
    Happy Friday.

    Love, Esther

  • You guys are always so cute! I’m loving Nancy’s look here!


  • Judy Gramith

    OMG! One of my absolute favorites! That first photo in front of the red partitioned wall is SO COOL!! All of your stylings are just darling!
    Charlotte’s face is particularly beautiful in that last shot of her just strolling along. I love her yellow purse as well.
    Nancy’s medium blue booties are unusual and so pretty. I find blue shoes to be extremely wearable. They help create a nice long leg line eith any blue jean.
    But , JODIE!!! You are just the cutest woman in America from head to toe!!!!
    I love the buffalo plaid under the Fairisle sweater. The fact that you made that cute sweater is off the charts amazing. ( I’ve always loved this sweater style) Your boots are so cute that I went to the link you provided immediately! (Alas, none in my size) The hat looks so jaunty on you.
    Yup, you stole my heart on this one dear girl. GREAT STYLING!!

    • Awwwww, Jude!! Your comment made me grin from ear to ear.
      I’m so glad this sweater came out so well. Although I think I need to gently wash it so the bottom ends don’t stick out so much….(I know, i’m being picky)
      Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for all of the love and support. It’s so nice to feel like we’re talking a couple times a week!!
      Do you finally feel settled??

  • I love this print and own like 3 coats in this print and I have to say it is so wearable and fun and feminine. Love the way you ladies put this classic look together 🙂

    • Thanks Heather!!
      It really works for us all, doesn’t it??
      I wouldn’t have thought it a couple of years ago, but we might as well be fierce!!

  • Great casual look ladies! Jodie I love your leopard coat the best. I like that it’s a darker “pattern”/spots so it’s a bit more muted.

    • It’s amazing how many different varieties there are of the leopard coats, and I’m glad mine is a little darker!!
      Thanks Laura!!

  • Leopard coats for you right now while my daughter just bought herself a leopard print bikini. A world apart but still in theme. Love it. #teamlovinlife

    • Totally the same fierceness!!!!
      And you?? What leopard print is in your closet, Leanne??

      • I had a shirt but my daughter stole it. Damn teens. Great that I have something worth stealing i suppose

  • Love the leopard coats and the red background! These are the cutest pictures!

    pumps and push-ups

    • Thanks Brooke!!
      Didn’t that red wall just come at a perfect time??

  • How cute are you all in your leopard coats!!! That pic of all three of you is darling. And those red boots… LOVE.

  • You ladies are a vision in leopard! I love these photos so much! You all look amazing. But I really need to talk about your outfit specifically, Jodie! The red studded booties! Yes! So fabulous! And the pairing of Buffalo plaid with leopard…I am a huge fan. In fact, I did a similar pairing a few years ago in the beginning of my blog (I think before anyone was reading it), but I was met with much criticism from my family and friends. I loved the combination and still do. I may have to find that old post and replicate that outfit! I think it was a leopard blouse with a Buffalo plaid cardigan. Thanks for reminding me of it and inspiring me to try it again!

    Shelbee http://www.shelbeeontheedge.com

    • I totally want to see that replication Shelbee!! You were just way ahead of your time with that pairing…it’s funny how at certain times we think it doesn’t work and then later it’s perfect. And you’ve gotten your family much more used to “real style” now! LOL!!

  • Missy May

    Don’t you love how rich leopard coats are? Something about em that screams boss and money. Ha!! You ladies are rocking these coats so well. Your shoes is hot.com!


    • I think you’re absolutely right Missy!! It definitely says something different than a puffer jacket..LOL!!

  • That photo with all 3 of you is so cool! And how fun that your mom’s coat was a souvenir from Turkey! You ladies have convinced me I need to get some leopard print in my life. 🙂


    • I do think it’s a print that really makes a statement!!
      I’ll be looking forward to seeing what you decide to dip your toe in with!!
      Thanks Lindsey!!

  • Amy D. Christensen

    Yay for leopard print! Another winning combination for each of you, but I must confess, Jodie, I’m with you. I simply love red with the print. Your pops of red in the shirt, sweater, bag and shoes is absolutely perfect. Great looks ladies and good job each finding your own style. Well done! – Amy

    • Thanks Amy!!!
      I wonder why we love the red so much—I mean, yes it really pops against the leopard, but I bet yellow would too!! I’m trying hard to get out of my styling ruts, and try different combinations!!

  • I Love all the leopard prints and your Mom seems to steal the show most of the time. This time your red boots are my fave. Enjoy!

    • My mom certainly knows how to make a statement, doesn’t she??
      But I’m trying to chase her down this time…ha ha!!
      Thanks Neti!!!

  • Yvonne

    Everyone should wear what they want to and feel comfortable wearing! Good that you ignored the advice. You proved that animal print looks great, no matter what age!
    xo Yvonne

    • Thanks for saying that Yvonne!!!
      I think we are finally realizing that looking like everyone else is not always beneficial….

  • Carly

    I think you should ignore that articles advice. Older women, younger women and any age in between should do and wear what they want when they want too. There is way too much advice telling us women how to look…..

    Okay I’ll get off my soap box now.

    On another note you ladies look fabulous as always. I particularly like how Jodie accented the leopard with pops of red. Such a fun combo!

    Have a wonderful day!
    Carly at A Modern Mom Blog

    • I love hearing these soap boxes, Carly. Especially coming from the younger women like yourself!! Because I think we need to hear things way more than once for them to really take root. And we’ve been programmed for so long to think the other way!!
      Thanks for all of your wonderful input!!

  • Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom

    I don’t have a leopard coat yet, but gosh golly I love all of yours! I do love red paired with leopard, although I don’t have a lot of red in my closet. I do have a red Kate Spade cross body bag, tho! I just love the photo of all 3 of you together wearing your leopard coats, so stunning! 🙂


    • Thanks so so much Carrie!!!
      I am amazed at how fierce I feel in this coat…silly, right? But maybe that’s the truth about how clothes affect us??

  • I loooove a statement leopard coat! You all styled them so cool!


  • This is so inspiring! Whipping out my leopard coat as we speak! xx HautePinkPretty

    • It’s the perfect coat for all of us!!
      Thanks An!

  • You ladies are making SUCH a good case for me buying a leopard coat!

    Le Stylo Rouge

    • I do think they are a fabulous statement coat, Ashley!!

  • I’m definitely a Leopard Queen, too, and you ladies look AH-MAZing!!

    • I’m so glad there are more of us out there, Laura!!!
      We leopard girls gotta stick together!!

  • You all look absolutely fabulous! I LOVE leopard print and wouldn’t hesitate to wear it with almost anything (within reason lol). I particularly love your outfit, Jodie. And the beret is perfect 🙂
    Suzy x

    • I do think it’s a fabulous print. Sure, we may stand out more wearing it, but that’s a good thing!!
      Glad you’re in the “yes” group, Suzy and thanks for the love!!

  • You all look fantastic! Va Va Voom! Love me a leopard print too.

  • Kathy Marris

    Wow the animal print coats are divine. I want one! I’m not adverse to a little animal print in my clothing and accessories. I think (in moderation) it looks great on women of all ages. #TeamLovinLife

    • I think you’re absolutely right, Kathy!!

  • Min Write of the Middle

    I have never owned a leopard print coat but I do like them! Out of all of these I’d have to say I think I like the one you are wearing best Jodie! I must like the darker shades more or something but that is the one I am most drawn to! I kinda want one now … but it doesn’t get very cold here to ever wear one but I still want one! lol #TeamLovinLife

    • I really lucked out with this coat, Min!! I’ve been wearing it nonstop and it’s perfect for our weather.
      I have seen some trench coat versions too—just sayin’ http://shopstyle.it/l/vs7W

  • Imogen O’Neill

    Leopard print is the best, now I feel inspired to get some of mine out again. Love red with leopard print. I had not thought of blue but that’s an amazing choice too.
    Tia Cherie

    • You should absolutely get yours out now too!!!
      They make such a statement!!

  • I know this post is about the leopard coats but that sweater you knit??? It’s fabulous!!! Love it paired with the plaid shirt.

    • Thanks Darlene!!
      I am what a friend calls #knittingninja!! LOL

  • Your coat is really stunning, I’ve always loved leopard print, but twenty years ago it was,, not done,,. I’m so glad it’s okay to wear it!

    • You’re so right Nancy—-I’m so glad it’s evolved that these fun items are fabulous now!!

  • Leopard print is a neutral as far as I am concerned. I think it goes with anything and on anyone! You all look fabulous!

    • Thanks Cheryl—I think I’m finally realizing that too!!

  • rosebud1950

    I feel that no matter what age you are, head to toe animal print just doesn’t work! I love animal prints and if wearing a large item such as a coat, dress, etc., I make that all. If wearing something small such as a bag, shoes, jewelry, then more than one. Jodie, you all look amazing!

    • That’s a great way to look at it!!
      Thanks for this thought!!!

  • The things people come up with about style are just as ridiculous now as they ever were. Moderate leopard print after a certain age makes about as much sense as white after labor day. Anyone, regardless of age, can pull off any print they’d like! I love that you all kept things colorful with your coats, it can be easy to stick with neutrals and call it a day.

    • I think that’s the best thing about this day and age–style has gotten away from “rules per se” and become more individualistic.
      It’d be so boring if we all dressed alike anyways!!
      Thanks Lydia!!

  • i really love that you ladies have been doing group pictures together! super cute!


  • Love the casual vibes with these awesome coats! Leopard works anywhere in my opinion.


    • I’m with you Kathrine!! It’s so fun and interesting, what’s not to love??

  • Cindy

    Especially loving your outfit Jodi, complete with red lips and a beret! YAY! I’m wearing my leopard coat today! I usually try to match my coat to my outfit, but some days it’s a black polar fleece and I’m out the door. Not every day am I a fashionista! 😉

    • I totally get it, Cindy!! There are some days it’s hard enough to figure out the basics (do I have my keys, where am i going…ha ha)
      But you always show us the best parts!!

  • Living on Cloud Nine

    Gimmie all the leopard and call you 3 true dolls! Each one sooo fabulous!

    • Thanks Andrea!!
      It is the funnest print around!!

  • Mireille

    I love those pics of the 3 of you!

  • Queen of Rods

    I particularly like your outfit today, Jodie. Your hand-knitted sweater is awesome, and I would love to have a pair of those red booties. I like how your handbag mimics the design of your shoes. As for the fingerless gloves, just ask a millennial…they’re for texting 🙂

    • Thanks so much Janet!!
      Those fingerless gloves may be for texting, but don’t your fingers get cold? I love that they have texting gloves now where the fingers are at least covered (I’m sure an older person came up with that…ha ha!!!)

  • Laura

    You all look AMAZING in your leopard coats! I love the statement they make! If I ever see one on sale, you better believe I will be getting it! And your new sweater is gorgeous! You are so talented Jodie!

    • Thanks so much Laura!!
      Knitting is definitely my passion, but it’s like cooking…you just follow a recipe/pattern. It’s the designers who are truly talented!!!

  • Oooooh, I love your background and how Rob has you ladies set up for pictures! Those zappos earrings you found are beautiful! Ok, I must be a boring fashionista but I pick what coat I’m going to wear by the temperature and the occasion and actually I really only have three winter coats so there isn’t much to pick from. And I agree with you that red goes really well with leopard but I always want to pair the jewel tones with them. Probably b/c that’s what I have the most of in my closet!

    • I think the jewel tones look incredible with leopard…because really every color looks great with it!!
      You’re not a boring fashionista at all!! But I certainly couldn’t live where I live with only 3 winter coats—it’s too minimalist for me!! LOL

    First of all – I really love the quote of the day. Second – what fabulous looks you all have today. Your outfit is such an incredible mix of textures, colors and details (my eyes zeroed in on your sweater immediately not realizing this was the hand knit one you had shown earlier on the blog). Nancy’s combo is great and I loved Charlotte’s beautiful jacket from the earlier post. Great job, ladies – I only wish that I lived closer so that I could shop with you guys!!

    • You would have fun shopping with us Rebecca!! But maybe we’ll be out in New York sometime soon!! It’s actually on the list because we have a great nephew that we’d love to see!!
      I need to remember that quote daily—-it’s a great reminder to be who we really are and forget the noise from others!!!

    Love all these leopard coat inspired outfits! Jodie, I am always amazed at your knitting skills. The sweater is gorgeous. You look tres chic in the beret. I fell heir to a black beret from France (cool label on the inside) and I have it hanging on the edge of my dressing table mirror, sporting lapel pins holding dainty necklaces on chains. (That way they don’t get tangled in the jewelry box.) Your boots are great but I want a pair like Nancy’s! And the blue sweater! Your mom always looks fab! Love that her jacket is actually a souvenir. Funny story about animals prints: The owner of the design studio/furniture store where I used to work installed leopard carpet in our sales office. I have a tendency to vertigo/dizziness and was sick for a day after she put that down. Whenever we see an animal print, the Urban Farmer says “looks like Sherry’s rug”. Kudos to Rob for the picture against the red metal building. Kinda Beatles like…ha! xoxo

    • I laughed at your story Donna!! I would never have thought that could affect someone like that!! It’d be funny if you had to don sunglasses to step into the office…LOL!!
      You need to pull that beret off and throw it on your head!! It’s so ultra chic now!! And I bet it looks great on you!!
      Thanks for always sharing a little of your life too—-it’s such a fun peek for me

  • You all have styled the leopard coat beautifully but I love your style. You look so pretty in red lipstick and your shoes are my favorite. Those boots are perfect with your outfit. Have a great day <3 Kisses 🙂
    <3 Have a great day <3

    • Thanks Rakhshanda!!
      I always think that footwear can be so fun!!

  • Rita Palazzi

    Thank you so much Jodie! I’m proud to be in your blog with such beautiful women. I enjoyed your post so much!

    • I’m so glad you posted that photo on FB, Rita!! I’ve loved meeting you, and can’t wait to see what our friendship brings!!

  • In design we call leopard a neutral and we are not kidding! Everyone, every home needs a bit of the growl!-Laurel

  • Love the coats, love the write ups and explanations, and love Rob’s artsy photography!

    Was just saying to my Mr. that I really don’t need more clothes until spring (which is abnormal because I’m usually snagging deals this time of year). BUT, you’re making me think I may “need” a leopard print coat because I’m jealous-ing over all your cool looks. Dang, Jodie! You’re killing me! 👍🏻

    • I know…I know. I really didn’t need another coat in my closet, but I’ve been wearing this one more than I thought. It’s actually a little heavier than most of my other print coats, and yet not as heavy as my sheepskin one!!
      And it’s such a ageless piece…..I bet you can get a fabulous deal on one, and the younger ones in the house can wear it too???

    I can’t get enough of y’all! So smart to style your leopard coats more casually. I have to do that with mine. Right now I only take it out when I’m wearing a dress! Mine is more cropped so I have been a but stumped with what to style it with but the wheels are turning – ha!
    Also, I am LOVING your quote of the day – absolutely agree 100%!
    You all are so fabulous and inspiring!

    • I usually think of my print coats as more dressy, but then I started questioning why. They look just as great with jeans!!
      I can’t wait to see you in yours soon, Kellyann!!
      And thanks for such fabulous compliments!!

    You all hit it out of the park again on this one, including Rita! This is true leopard inspiration this week! I didn’t see a mention of your necklace but I really like that. Can’t believe you made that sweater – it’s beautiful and fair isle is always a classic I think (like leopard!) Loving those red boots, what fun those would be to wear!! Nancy’s blue boots are fabulous! She always has her nails done so nicely! That’s a really good tip about the hand warmers, to wear them over other gloves. I never really understood them, but that’s probably due to the climate where I live. If it was more temperate, I’d probably get it! Your mom embracing the print before it became trendy, that is what women do who know a classic pattern or design when they see one. Or when they feel adventurous and just try something because darn it, they love it!! Charlotte, you always look classy and chic! Again, love seeing the three of you in those coats together! It makes for such a great shot! (Quote is so true too, isn’t it? Wow…)

    • It’s funny because we walked into a restaurant after this photo shoot, and the lady at the front ogled over us for a good minute!! Of course 3 leopard coats in one little space is definitely eye catching!!
      Doesn’t that quote just give you some thought?? I feel like I learn something everyday!!

  • Gorgeous! This is my favourite way to wear leopard coats.

  • This whole look is great on you Jodie. I love the boots too. You all look fabulous here and I’m totally with you on the leopard print in moderation. Who writes this stuff? xx
