Feeling Feline

I love a NEW year. It's an undeniable reason to try new things. That being said, we are going to be doing so many NEW things here at The Darling Downtown. For starters, in case you didn't notice, we've swapped sites and are a little bit in a transition time while my domain is out floating around waiting to be transferred. I vowed to be more proactive with the blog this year and in doing so, believe that this switch will be the first of many updates that will be so beneficial for both you (the reader) and I. Bare with me while I learn this new language of technology!

On top of a new site host and blog format, I'll be branching out a bit with blog content. I've had so many incredible suggestions made to me over the last few months and I'm more than thrilled to be bringing you some of the things you've asked for. We'll see more curated posts, more teaching editorials, and (more so to challenge me personally) I'll be taking a few more fashion risks than normal. So buckle up babes! 2016 is off to an exciting start.

It seemed only fitting that my first official look of 2016 should be an out-of-the-box style for me. After visualizing the entire look I couldn't help but feel like I was channeling a bit of a feline inspiration. I snagged this gray leopard print coat from Target and I have to tell you, this sucker is so cozy! An added touch of glamour, it has a detachable faux fur collar. Seriously. Black satin pants just made sense with this pairing. It's like getting away with wearing your pajamas in public.

If you haven't heard, the turtle neck is back and better than ever. A cool split side black turtle neck sweater was the obvious choice for this comfy yet luxe look, and let's be honest, when your coat steals the show you just don't have to try as hard. That's the great thing about a statement jacket! To top it all off I slipped on my black patent bow loafers and a pair of funky Cat Eye sunnies by Quay Australia.

But what do YOU think babes? How will you be bringing change to 2016? Let me know in the comments! And, as always, wear what you love, but LOVE who you are!
