A girl can never have too much __________.

Top: Modcloth | Pants: Loft (old) | Shoes: Nine West Outlet | Earrings: Target (old)

John and I are completely addicted to watching American Pickers. I’m definitely no history buff, but after watching a marathon the other day I realized that picking and collecting antiques and my love for shopping may not be all that different after all. Frank, one of the show’s main stars, seems to have an affinity for oil cans. In a recent episode, Frank was attempting to purchase a new oil can from a seller (who stated that it wasn’t for sale) which provided the perfect opportunity for Mike, the show’s other main star, to poke fun at him. He said something along the lines of, “Frank just keeps buying oil cans, lines them all up and stares at them. I’ll tell him ‘don’t buy that, you already have that one,’ and he’ll say, ‘but I don’t have it in green.'” It was in this moment that I truly identified with the show and turned to John stating, “see? It’s like my love for leopard print.”

In my opinion, a girl can never have too much leopard print. Sure, I may have a pair of leopard heels but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t buy leopard flats, and leopard loafers. And while I have this leopard print necktie blouse, I’m going to need a long sleeve leopard blouse for fall and winter, am I right? The way I see it, when you find a trend you love, there’s no reason not to invest in it. No matter the trend you choose, you can never have “too much” of something that makes you both look and feel great.

What trends or prints do you keep adding to your wardrobe? Do you believe you can ever have “too much” of a certain trend or print?

    My boyfriend always says “don’t you already have that shirt?” when I go to buy something new! In reality, it’s not the same shirt but maybe it’s a similar color or pattern. I have a lot of black in my wardrobe I’ve been told, but that’s because it goes with everything!

    Love this top, Modcloth is amazing! I recommended it to my cousin for a few weddings she had to attend and she loved it!

      Haha John is the same way with me. Especially when it comes to my shoe collection. He says it’s too much, I just say I’m covering all my bases and my wardrobe is prepared for any occasion! Modcloth is amazing, I wish I had a gift card with an unlimited balance to spend there.

    Your pictures always come out so gorgeous, Steph! Leopard is one of those things that I’m always attracted to…as well as polka dots! But my biggest “I can never have too many” item is definitely silk shirts. I must have at least 20 different colors and cuts, but their so perfect for work (and drinks afterwards) that I just keep buying more. Madewell and Joe Fresh have great options (especially Joe…so cheap!). xo

        I need to check out these silk shirts you speak of because they seem to be quite the hot item. And if you like em, I’m bound to like them as well! I’m going to browse both sites and see what I come up with but feel free to inbox me links πŸ˜‰

    I’m a big stripe girl. I mean striped shirts are always cute, striped skirts are some of my favorites and when striped dresses come around… don’t get me started! Every time some “new” striped item comes into style my mom always has some snarky comment ready like “huh? how did this get out of your closet?” Come on, Ma. It’s cute!

      A few months ago Target had these adorable maxi skirts and one was black and white stripes. I wanted it SO bad but there were none in my size. Stripes are definitely a great print (and stripes and leopard pair quite well together, just sayin)…

    Ha ha, I can totally relate! πŸ™‚ I agree, a girl can never have too much leopard. I have to keep stopping myself from buying more of it. Shoes is definitely another one of those things that I will always buy, even if I have 3 other pairs that look similar!

      I don’t even try to stop myself anymore, I just love it too much! I’m the same way with shoes. I’ve been better about resisting temptation lately, but can only subside my need for new shoes for so long…

      Thanks Emily! John is becoming quite the photographer…he must have a good teacher πŸ˜‰ That’s too bad you can’t watch American Pickers…but I’m sure they have it on Netflix. It’s such a fun show to watch!

    These pictures are so pretty! And I can agree, a girl can never have too much leopard print. I love the sheer-ness of the top too, because that is what I can’t get enough off. I feel like all my tops in my closet are sheer.

      Thanks Jenna! I have so many sheer tops in my wardrobe also. At first I didn’t know how to outfit them but once I added a few lacy white and nude tanks into the mix I couldn’t get enough.

    Hi, I’d like to send my fiancΓ© down to Florida for some photography lessons. Obviously, your man has the whole camera thing down pat. I’ll send cookies with him- it’ll be worth it, haha! πŸ˜‰

    I couldn’t agree more! I find leopard print in every aspect of my closet – sweaters, shoes, tanks, jewlery….I can’t get enough (and I’m happy to hear that it will always be the same with you too!)

    Love reading about you and John, you two are the lovliest!

    xx,

    The sunlight in the photos is just beautiful!! Gotta love a touch of leopard too!

    That tv show sounds hilarious… oil cans really? I guess it’s not much different than staring at leopard print all day. πŸ˜‰

    Gorgeous outfit! Nope, I don’t think you can have enough leopard print (that’s what I tell myself anyway haha). I love the light in these pictures, so pretty πŸ™‚
