By now, you all know my love for leopard.  Well, meet tortoise: leopard’s more subtle, but still equally cool cousin.  It’s nothing new, but the print has been popping up in accessories everywhere this fall and I ain’t mad.  A touch of tortoise and a dash of gold make for an ultra luxe combo.  Check out a few of my favorite pieces!

prim & punk.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; feminine outfit photos; Hello Glam Prim and Proper blue bow dress; Banana Republic sparkle stone white statement necklace; Linea Pelle Grayson Bar Clutch in blus; J.Crew pave square link bracelet; Michael Kors gold boyfriend watch; Brighthouse Baubles gold chain bracelet; Pour La Victoire Mai wedge pumpAnother Monday calls for another office-friendly outfit.  But, as you may already know, my office attire rarely involves button-up blouses and pencil skirts.  I prefer to jazz up the work wear with delightful little details, like a bow-waisted dress or a pyramid-studded clutch — or both!  Today’s outfit is prim, proper and a little bit of punk — a funky enough combo to get me through the 9 to 5 grind.
