After searching high and low, I have finally found a pair of printed leopard shorts that can be transitioned between the seasons. Since the print is quite bold, I decided to balance it out by adding a touch of understated femininity – and in my case, it’s always with something sheer and lace. I also kept the rest of the outfit as simple as possible with minimal accessories and a pair of flats.

Fashion is truly a balancing act and it wasn’t until this year that I learned about the importance of balancing proportions. Always try to keep proportions in mind when selecting your outfits: pair neutral palettes with something fun, printed and bold; pair loose tops with fitted bottoms (and vice versa); and ladylike pieces with something edgy (think military or leather).

Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend!
