So many of you leave comments like, “you look good in anything,” or “you always look good in everything that you wear.” Well, that is not the case, and there are times when I take photos and then trash the entire bunch because they look terrible. Here is what I can tell you….your mirror will lie to you. I can look in the mirror, and an outfit looks fine to me, but when I see the photos, I cringe and decide to start all over again.                                                     Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a leopard print blouse with black ankle pants with leopard print heels

These photos are some that I wasn’t happy with after I saw the pictures. It isn’t that the items don’t go together; it is that I wish I had tried something else instead. It is too blah, too plain, and too dark. My reason for showing you these photos is because I wanted to show you that fashion and getting dressed every day is difficult for everybody. We all have bad hair days, and we all have bad outfit days. The key is to realize that you should have done something different and then try again. Next time, I would wear a pair of jeans with the blouse, and go more casual.

I like the leopard print blouse, but I don’t LOVE the blouse. It might be the background beige color, or it might be that I think the large leopard print is too busy. But, when I look at the blouse on the website, I like it, so it might just be that the black is too dark and stark for the blouse. Anyhow, I am wearing a size medium, and it fits fine. However, it is also limited in sizing, so I’ll link to some other items that I like instead.

I liked these So Slimming pants, but I messed up and ordered the wrong size. I know that I usually wear a size .5 when I order from Chico’s, but I let my mind tell me that these were dress pants and that I needed to size up instead. That was a horrible mistake because the pants look too big and baggy. But, I love the pants, so don’t let the fact that I picked the wrong size keep you from checking these pants out. I love the slit zippers in the front, and I love the seam down the leg. Plus, the ankle-length is a flattering length, and you can wear a lot of different shoes with this length. This length looks great with heels, flats and loafers, and boots, making it very versatile.

I love leopard print, and I love heels, so these Sam Edelman shoes are perfect for me. Leopard print is not going anywhere, and it will be worn for years to come, so investing in a cute pair of leopard print shoes is not silly. You will be able to look stylish with jeans, pants, leggings, dresses, and skirts, and this print will keep you looking young and modern. This pair of heels have been sold out for months, but there are tons of leopard print options out there for you.

Adding my Vince Camuto lambskin leather tote handbag brings the gold out in the top and shoes. I love this tote, and you see me carrying it all of the time. I love the tote so much because it is soft, very nice quality, has plenty of room, and looks so luxurious when you carry it. This tote elevates any look you pair it with, but you can also carry it with jeans. Other than my Louis Vuitton handbags, this is probably my favorite bag that I’ve bought. That should tell you how much I love this bag.

    I love the blouse, but it is not your color. You looked washed out

    I agree with Kathy below. I think it is a very chic outfit with the sweater. I like it a lot. Love the print and the leopard shoes. I think a bolder gold necklace would add a nice touch of brightness along with a warmer lip and cheek. Very surprised you’re not thrilled because I was drawn to it immediately.

    That outfit would be ok for work where you have to wear dress pants or suit. (Many times I felt pretty boring at work!) I think jeans & a different jacket would feel more…happy?
