Leopard Scarf 5 Ways

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

I had every intention of joining Franish for 5 Days, 5 Ways this week; I've been working on remixing items in my closet and this seemed like the perfect opportunity/motivation. But then my surgery rotation got really busy...and our research project (which we have to present next week) turned into one big headache...and then we had this meeting on residency applications/interviews that sent my stress level sky high (I'm still uncertain on my specialty). So I'm joining Franish/Along the Lines of Style for just one of five days, and probably the easiest: Accessories.

According to Rachel Zoe, leopard is a neutral. So it wasn't hard at all pulling together five looks with my leopard scarf but it was hard to find time to snap some pics, which Stephen did in between trying to cook dinner last night (we do things gourmet, as in spaghetti). Even when I'm not in scrubs, I don't usually wear scarves to the hospital or clinic (it just seems too high maintenance and infection-prone) so it was fun to pull together some outfits that I don't normally have the opportunity to wear.

  1. ok, you're just going to have to ignore your career path and your education because blogging challenges are much more important. obviously.

    JUST KIDDING ;) I'm glad you joined in for even just a day! I love the leopard scarf - it's something that I wish I had in my closet because as you've shown, it is so versatile. I think the last outfit is my favorite one!

  2. I don't know where you want to do residency but please can we be together so I can borrow from your closet? Everything looks so cute! Green sweater, yellow skirt, boots, it's all lovely.

    I promise I'll let you borrow my frumpy clothes in return. ;-)

  3. I totally agree with Katie! Each of those outfits are great! If I was handed a leopard print scarf I wouldn't have had an idea where to start and you make it look so effortless and pretty!

  4. So loving all of these looks. I'm just sort of, mildly obsessed with leopard myself! That last one with the emerald green and those awesome cognac boots is perfection! Thanks for linking up.

  5. Cute outfits! : ) I am stopping by from pleated poppy. I've been exploring your blog a bit and really like it! : ) Anyways! Have a great day!

  6. I totally agree that leopard is a neutral - it looks good with everything! And I love how the scarf snazzes up all of these versions. So fun.

  7. Okay, I've been thinking about getting a leopard skinny belt, but now I'm adding a leopard scarf to the list too!

  8. Great inspiration! Leopard seems to go with everything. I really like your last look with the green. Great looks :) Heather

  9. Great post. I did something like this on my blog a few months ago. Check it out. I have a great tutorial video on it. Don't forget about my link up tomorrow. HOpe you can join me.



  10. Looove your style! The green & leopard with the boots is my fave- it really pops! And I agree- leopard is a neutral!

  11. I love the scarf! You're my inspiration!

  12. I love all of your outfits. For quick pics you did really well. I have a thinner version of your scarf but think I might need to upgrade now! Thanks for joining up with WW :)

  13. Love me some leopard print! I'm still figuring out how to tie scarves in different ways...the outfits look great :)

  14. You are giving me some great ideas for my Leopard scarf! Im going to wear it tomorrow!!

  15. These outfits are great, pretty much everything goes with leopard print! My favorites are the last two. Your military jacket is a great color, and the bright green top looks great against the scarf!

  16. I have a leopard scarf that needs more exercise outside of my closet--so thanks for the new ideas! :) I'm glad you decided to join in on the link-up!

  17. Creme on white, black leggings, brown shoes is my fave! Way to go with the remixes.

  18. Awesome - I used my leopard scarf for the 5D5W challenge as well :) I had an outfit with similar colors as your last one, and one outfit where I paired my scarf with black and white stripes! Too funny. I love how versatile leopard print is. So timeless :)


  19. Thank you for linking up today. Hope to see you next time: Thursday April 11. The theme is show me your favorite spring trend.



  20. That scarf is super adorable!! It definitely works as a neutral.

  21. I love style challenges such as these. I a huge fan of scarves and wear one almost daily, I don't have leopard print in my collection but, looking at hese, I think I should. I love the first outfit and the one with the stripe tee (another weakness of mine).
    Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and comment - it's always nice to meet new readers.
