Hi, my name is Christin and I abuse neutrals. Here’s the thing guys, I hate the mornings and when everything I own is black, white or tan, it’s a hell of a lot easier to get ready in the mornings. So sue me.
Recently, I’ve pulled out this old ditty (aka JCREW sweater circa 2008) and worn it with every print I own. It’s my new thing. And this leopard print oxford has not been immune.
sweater: JCREW vintage (HA!) similar // shirt: JCREW old // jeans// watch // sunglasses //necklace: gift
Also, this is my hair on day six post-wash. So yea, I braided that shit and put it back because I can’t be bothered to wash it more than once a week.
And because I know you can’t get enough of me, head on over and check out my feature on Channeling Contessa today!

I need to buy a leopard blouse! You rock because you look business casual yet so chic! I have to figure out how to do my hair in a braid like that! It looks pretty awesome!
If I could go 6 days without washing my hair, my life would be a hell of a lot easier (I’m jealous!)
I tend to push 6 days of not washing my hair too. My new thing is hitting up the blow dry bar once a week.
definitely just commented on the cookies instead of this hah but i love those sunglasses – I think they’ll have to be my new pair for spring!
you so stylish.
warby parker is my jam.
gORG! Love the camo print mixed with the tortoise of your sunnies! XX
Well, aren’t you looking chic? And I love your braid too! Although, I’m kind of jealous you can go SIX DAYS without washing your hair. Like, SO jealous.
so cute… love the braid and the mixed patterns!
I wear my black and stripped cardigan over everything!
that vintage sweater is perfect! 🙂 also, loved the feature on CC!
um, i love your hair like that, i don’t think i’ve ever seen it up before! you look good lady.
Haha. I’m glad you come clean with your neutral confession. Love this combo!
hi. come over and braid my hair like that please and thank you!
I love stripes with leopard/florals/polka dots. You are rocking it, lady. And I would have never suspected anything with your hair. I am a little jealous that I have to wash mine on day 3/4! xo
vintage- ha, I love it. Love your braid too!
I feel like this is all very NYC. Not that I’ve been to NYC. But I like it!
Love the gratuitous neutrals. And I am right there with you on the hair washing thing. Strangely (sadly?) enough, I get the most compliments on the twist-or-braid-it-back-and-get-that-shit-out-of-my-face days.
I love love this outfit and your braid! Perfect for early spring when it still feels like winter.
You look fierce. Love the pattern mixing and your fab braid.
mmmmmm love me a neutral. obsessed with your sunnies! you look fab!!! I can’t wait for my damn bangs to grow out so I can do a cute side braid… stupid bangs.
Adorable! I’m super jealous of your ability to do that braid, though. Every time I try one, it goes diagonally back instead of across my forehead. I’m hopeless with hair.
I’ve been trying to braid my hair like that for a while now and it just never looks that good.
I guess we can start an obsessed with neutrals club! 😉
Love the braid looks so gorgeous on you!
I love how you mixed these prints. It looks fabulous. I too abuse neutrals. They’re so much easier to throw together when you’re in rush!
I’d love for you to stop by my blog…
And now I’m deep into a Warby Parker session. Goodbye world!
leopard is basically a neutral so its fine that you wore it with stripes 🙂 you and grace are so funny about your hatred for washing hair. i am the exact same way but about DRYING it…. such a pain. so i usually wash it and then bun/braid it and i am good to go. xo.
love the leopard and your braid!

LOVE this look! I think I need those sunglasses- they are so cute!
You look super cute. I love the button up!
I love how you put the stripes and the leopard print together, that makes this outfit so unique.
Lots of Love, Teresa Valentina
Your hair hasn’t been washed in six days?? I can usually only make it two days before my hair looks nasty. I’m really jealous right now. My hair is so long I can’t dry it all the way down without spending over 20 minutes on it, and that just isn’t happening. I wish I only had to wash it once a week!
I love J.Crew’s quality and how their items are still relevant 5 years later. Cute look.
That hair is amaze-balls! and I love the leopard stripe combo!
I love the leopard and stripes combined. I wish I could go 6 days without washing my hair. I have to wash mine daily.

Hi CHristin! My name is Kathrin, with a K 😉
I love this leopard-printed blouse on you! PLUS your braided hair do is so cute 😉
That braid is all kinds of right. If I didn’t wash my hair for 6 days I would look like a homeless oily bohunk.
I love the mix of leopard and stripes! Also, your hair looks awesome like that! I am so hair challenged but I definitely need to attempt this. 🙂
LOVE. I have a printed cardigan I wear with everything, mostly other prints.
Great look! I really like the mixed black & white prints – This is a great casual, easy-to-throw-together weekend look. Lovely!
You look exactly like your mother. You two are too cute. Love your blogs.
P.S. I’m a friend of your mom’s.
