ending summer in leopard.

LOVE TAZA LP01-7i am known to get overly excited about each upcoming change of seasons. and in doing so, maybe start pulling out all my chunky sweaters and boots in 90 degree humidity. it happens in the winter, too…. showing bare ankles in the dead of february because i swear it’s basically spring. during college, i remember thinking i saw the leaves changing outside my dorm room window so it was totally appropriate to pull out a beanie for my head, only to realize when i got down to the street, it was still a sticky and sweaty lingering summer day, even in the first week of october. a stranger on the street commented, “aren’t you hot in that hat?” and me, frantically wanting to defend my decision, practically shouted back, “but it’s october!!!!”

and so, in natural naomi fashion, i have been pulling out all of my fall boots, and hats and scarves and all the autumn colors and prints i stuff in my storage bins under our bed and in the very back of the closets during the summer months. and somehow, everything leopard is all i want to wear this autumn. and before i pull out the leopard coat, i found something leopard that’s short sleeve!!!! so i’m not totally over dressed here in this heat! although i’m standing by my beliefs that everything fall-ish and autumn-y is completely appropriate now that labor day has passed. i won’t look-judge you if i see you sporting a sweater or pair of boots. i get you. i love you.

snapped some photos for a fun outfit post and while i’m just barely getting my pre-maternity jeans buttoned up, it’s feeling good to get dressed again in proper jeans (that have plenty of forgiving stretch, mind you. regular denim and i have never really gotten along well). anyway, anyone else into leopard or other animal prints this season? if it’s leopard, send it my way!


is it just me, or are these leaves on the sidewalk changing color?!?! ;)


happy autumn! :)

    Arrived in DC for a business trip yesterday and wandered to the National Press Bldg Marshalls to kill some time before a meeting. Left w/ the most adorable and comfy pair of leopard ballet flats! Leopard is the new black!

  5. You’ve inspired me to go out and find something leopard print for the season. I love the way you styled the leopard print with the cap toe shoes.

    Love clothing posts- can you do a nursing friendly clothing post please?? You have the cutest style!

  8. I am loving this post and I can completely relate to what you’re saying about getting ready for Autumn now that it’s September! The other day I wore a thick cardigan as I swore I felt a chill in the air, only to be sweating profusely within 40 minutes. I love a good piece of leopard print for fall and this top is so lovely.
    I hope all is well :)
    Love, Kate x

    Oh I’m so happy you are back to posting your outfits! I love your inspiring unique style, even if I can’t afford the pieces! That being said, maybe here and there you could post some more affordable items that are super stylish and unique (in pure Naomi fashion) but take it a bit easier on the pocketbook?? Thanks! Happy Fall to you & yours!

  13. Hope

    I love this whole get-up! I wholeheartedly agree with you on all things fall and leopard. It may be September, but bring it on!

    Love this outfit! But could do without the ‘barely could get my pre-maternity jeans buttoned up’ …
