Guys! This weather is so unpredictable! When I got back to New York on Thursday, it was pouring rain. Then it felt like winter on Friday. Saturday was a perfect fall day, and yesterday felt like summer. And then there was a mini-monsoon later on in the afternoon. I give up. It’s so weird!!! Also, Happy Halloween – did you celebrate? I was a goldfish on Saturday and I’m being a unicorn tonight. You may not know this about me but it’s my favorite holiday. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed the weekend – mine was really nice. The perfect mix of doing lots of things, with lots of downtime! On Friday night, I went to Pouring Ribbons in the East Village for drinks with a girlfriend. They have the most delicious, interesting cocktail menu – I highly recommend it!!! On Saturday, I spent a few hours reading, went for a run, and got caught up on work. Then, it was dinner + a costume party with a bunch of my girlfriends – a later night than I’d expected. Yesterday was mellow. I went to church and brunch with a friend, and spent the rest of the day reading and relaxing. I feel ready to tackle what’s going to be a busy week. I’m not entirely sure how/why, but this week is PACKED with meetings and events!
I bought this leopard sweater at J.Crew when I hosted my fundraiser for the ASPCA. You might not think of leopard as a basic or a neutral, but I’ve gotten so much wear out of it! It’s great with jeans, black pants or a skirt, and it pairs well with every color. I’ve gotten so much mileage from it already.

Thank you Elle! I’m a big fan of that combo 🙂 🙂
You’re right I would never expect leopard to be a neutral. The outfit is great and love the red pop of color and those pumps.
Have a great week, Grace!
Thank you so much Tracy – I hope you had a great weekend!
Agreed about this weirdo weather! Kind of want it to just cool down and be fall for a little while. Love that leopard sweater! I have the short sleeve version and will definitely be wearing it a lot this fall and winter.
I know! I mean, I don’t mind the warm weather… it just makes getting dress so confusing! Hope you had a great weekend, Sam! xx
LOVE that sweater- and your red bag! my daughter is being a unicorn as well, ha!
i’ve got a fall sweater round up on my blog- most under $50!
Ha! I love it!!! My good friend’s daughter was a unicorn as well and it was so cute!!
You’re so cute! I love that sweater!
Thank you so much Erin! Hope you had a great weekend!!!
Didn’t Jenna Lyons say she considers leopard a neutral? Looks great on you, Grace! Hope you have fun tonight 🙂
Yes, I think she did!!! Thank you Delaney – hope you have a wonderful Halloween! xo
Oh my, you def. did have an amazing times over the weekend!! You’re looking beautiful in this cute, chic and casual outfit!
Thank you so much Natali 🙂 Appreciate it – hope you have a great day! xo
I have a similar leopard sweater and I love it as a neutral! You are so right…you can really pair it with anything!
It’s the most versatile pattern!!! Happy Halloween to you! xoxo
Please post your costumes pics! They sound fun! Love the sweater. I have definitely come to use animal prints as neutrals and leopard is my fave. Have a pair of flats I love and am looking for a handbag. Not going out, but had a spooky fun dinner with friends last night. Made a “bloody orange “cocktail with gummy worm and a spider ring garnish and meatballs with “eyeballs”. Have a fun, spooky day.
Ha ha, I put them on my Snapchat and my Instagram stories… but they’re not really a fit with the content I put up here on the blog. 🙂
Love that you see leopard as a neutral too… and it sounds like you had a fun dinner!!! Hope you have a great Halloween! xo
Hi Grace, is the contest still open? I’m confused about where to enter. You say to click profile. Your profile I’m assuming. I don’t see a link? Sorry, not completely tech savvy I guess. Thanks!
I assume you were looking at Instagram? that was an older post and I frequently change up the link in my bio. Here is the link to enter – good luck!!! bit.ly/youfirstgiveaway
that link you gave me isn’t live, so I tried entering it both in google and my web browser. Nothing. Then I went back to you instagram page and tried everything I could think of there and I don’t see anything, anywhere regarding the contest entry. What am I doing wrong? Even if it’s too late I want to understand. It can’t be this difficult. I also tried to google it and I read that “link in bio” doesn’t alway stay active. What amI not getting here? Thanks!!
Hey Cy! I sent you an email this morning with another link. I hope it works better for you – I haven’t heard of anyone else having issues… hopefully that resolves the problem!
And just in case you didn’t get the email – here is the link! https://rebeccaatwood.com/pages/the-you-first-giveaway?utm_source=TheStripe&utm_medium=YouFirstGiveaway
Such a cute top! Love how you styled it with a pop of red- perfect!
Thank you so much, Jennifer! Hope you had a great weekend. xx
