I recently read that a new styling rule was to treat animal prints as your new neutrals by adding them to your everyday outfits alongside color-block sweaters and classic trench coats. However, this rule is not new to me – leopard has always been neutral in my book! I live for a good leopard print and this season Banana Republic killed it with the perfect leopard print. The perfect balance of colors in some of my favorite silhouettes (wide-leg pants).
The second rule was to mix and match – the most modern way to wear animal prints is to clash them. I haven’t tried this trend yet, but I would love to take this look to the next level by swapping out my leather jacket for this AMAZING zebra print jacket from the H&M Studio Collection.
What do you think of these styling rules? Are you ready to treat leopard as a neutral? Clashing animal prints in your future?
Let me know in the comments.

Sweaty Betty Luxe Kit Bag Review
I’m here to report that I’m an everyday athleisure offender. Find me in leggings and sneakers whether I’m going to the gym or not. I work from home or a cafe and finding the right bag to take me around town with all my gear has truly been a struggle…
Introducing the ultimate luxe kit bag from Sweaty Betty. This bag will take you from workouts to work meetings to weekends away. In durable quilted fabric, with inner pockets including separate pockets for a wet kit (safe spot for all your sweaty gear), trainers and valuables, the zip up fastening top straps with popper fastening ensure your valuables are extra secure. Can be worn on the shoulders or used as a carryall.
This bag has truly transformed my everyday athleisure look and helped me to say goodbye to the random reusable totes I’ve been bringing to the gym. All my gear is organized, protected and frankly, I look a hell of a lot more put together.
Luxe Kit Bag Details

The wait is over! Shake Shack at Marin Country Mart in Larkspur is open!
and if you are anything like me you are ready to grub on a ShackBurger and come crispy crinkle cut fries. I hit up Shake Shack Marin this week and the drive from San Francisco to Larkspur is short and well worth it to get your Shake Shack fix.
In addition to their classic menu, Shake Shack
has created a unique selection of menu items exclusive to Marin including the Bay Area-exclusive Golden State Double, a Richards Grassfed Beef
double cheddar cheeseburger topped with pickles and smoked garlic aioli (center burger in the top photo).
For dessert, Shake Shack
will be spinning frozen custard concretes in collaboration with local purveyors Pie Dreams
and Dandelion Chocolate
. They were already sold out of the chocolate option when I was there, but I got down with the Pie Dreams concrete.
Want to get tipsy at Shake Shack Marin?
I drove and it took less than 20 minutes to get there on a Tuesday afternoon. There is plenty of parking in the Marin Country Mart. I seem to always find parking near the SoulCycle. No car, no problem. Jump on the ferry to Larkspur, cross the street and you are at Shake Shack Marin.
Start with a ShackBurger (especially if it is your first visit), crinkle cut fries, Chick’n Bites, and a concrete. Round two go for a Chick’n Shack and cheese fries.
