"Whatever's Clean 13" in LEOPARD, Navy and Beige

You wanted to see this idea "warmed up", and many of you mentioned leopard... here it is!

tote bag – Filson

I swapped out the beige garments for a warmer, more golden shade, and I chose a brown cardigan because it's just lovely! Some leopard accessories, and you're ready to travel...

This is how the template filled up - it looks really coherent, and you can clearly see that everything (including the striped tee shirt) will work together.

And this helps us visualize everything, including accessories. The 2nd tote bag is the kind of thing that you would smash down in your outbound suitcase, and then use to carry purchases on the return. It was SO reasonably priced that I could easily justify 2 totes in one wardrobe capsule!

 I love these outfits:


3 outfits with beige shorts and leopard accessories

3 outfits with white jeans and leopard accessories

3 outfits with beige trousers and leopard accessories

3 outfits with navy trousers and leopard accessories

3 outfits with a beige skirt and leopard accessories

Coral might be the next accent I bring into this wardrobe...

And a Public Service Announcement: posts here on The Vivienne Files might be irregularly timed, or just plain missing in action some days. I'm having surgery on kidney stones next week, and my preparations, and recovery, seem to be one of the mysteries of the ages!

Rest assured, when I'm able to, I'm here, and working away for your entertainment and edification...

lots of love,
Janice

  1. The very best of luck and wishes on your surgery.

    I wouldn't wear leopard in a million years, but these combos are adorable. I think this is an especially nice version of the blue/beige/white wardrobe too. Taking notes...

  3. I'm not a leopard person, either, but can see tweaking this wardrobe to fit my own preferences; love the choices, Janice!

    Best of luck with the operation; hope all goes smoothly, and recuperation is quick...

  5. I love this. I have some leopard print accessories. I like leopard print because it combines black, with brown & beige, which are my favorite colors to wear, but I have recently thought about moving towards Navy with brown & beige. As I get older, black just seems a little harsh. I never really thought about putting leopard print with Navy though, it looks great here, but I can't really picture wearing it. I would love to try it though. My leopard print scarf has more black in it....I am going to have to try to find a more beige based leopard print scarf like you are showing here. I am excited about trying to put a wardrobe together similar to this.

    Best wishes to you...hoping all goes well.

  8. I hope that all goes well with your surgery. You are my early morning "go-to". I'm visiting NYC in September and the Navy/Beige wardrobe would work for the warm days. My thoughts are with you.

  10. I love leopard, but what I REALLY like is the way that a jazzy accessory can make a very casual outfit look stylish.

    More importantly, best wishes and prayers for a successful and uneventful surgery and a swift and uncomplicated recovery. If you get bored, dream up ways to style a hospital gown.

  16. Love love everything you did with this, I do like leopard and reach for my leopard shoes often and realize its the print in the necklace that ties it all together, thanks to you!! I need to find a similar scarf to the one you have shown above and maybe another accessory or two for options.

    Sending prayers and best wishes for a successful surgery and quick as possible recovery.

  21. Alice above has a great idea. We can go back to the beginning while you recover. Kidney stones are not fun; best wishes on a rapid and comfortable recover.

  23. Best wishes from me, too! Your blog is the treat of my day! I don't wear leopard either and few prints in general. I usually rely on tops in an accent color to liven things up. I am going to study this posting to see how I could use accessories instead. Be well soon.

  27. OMG! Janice ! This is so perfect and simply georgeous. I LOVE animal prints and wrote to you yesterday about my colors. I'm definitely copying this wardrobe - updated for fall - for our honeymoon cruise in September. Can't wait to see this with coral - one of my favorite colors, after turquoise and aqua, but I was wondering how it would look with navy. The right accessories, of course! Thanks sooo much, Sending healing thoughts and prayers. XXX Janice Collins, Washington DC

  30. I have not commented in a while thanks long hours at work. The colors you picked are beautiful, even though I have never worn an animal print. I do like it used sparingly on others, though. Good luck with your surgery and recovery.

  39. Will be thinking of you during your surgery! It is amazing how much more oomph this set has than the last one -- which, as I commented, was perfectly good looking but just a little dull. Whether or not you like leopard print or a warmer tone, this great set shows how just adding a small difference in the strength of one of the neutrals makes from having them all the same strength -- all the khakis still go together perfectly but have enough visual difference from each other to give the impression of being a much more varied wardrobe. But it is the same number of pieces!

  40. Oh, you'll feel so much better once the surgery is done. And not having to worry if any little twinge is the start of a migrating stone is absolutely wonderful!

    Best wishes!

  41. What a gorgeous wardrobe!! I LOVE it!!! My style exactly!! Sending prayers and wishing you a quick recovery!!

  42. Dear Janice,

    I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.

    I would never have though to put leopard with navy and beige. I would usually think to put leopard with black, brown, beige or red. I used to be too conservative (read timid) to wear a leopard print, even though I liked the print on others. Now I realize that I should just go for what I like. If it works, good; and if it doesn't, then at least I gave it a shot.

    Best wishes!
