Leopard Sweater.

J.Crew Leopard Tippi Sweater - Grace Atwood, The Stripe
sweater // jeans // bag // heels


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.

    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!

    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

    I have a similar leopard sweater and I love it as a neutral! You are so right…you can really pair it with anything!

    XO Lauren

    • graceatwood says 10.31.16

      It’s the most versatile pattern!!! Happy Halloween to you! xoxo

  10. Cy says 10.31.16

    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.

    • graceatwood says 10.31.16

      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!

    • graceatwood says 10.31.16

      Hi Cy,
      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

      • Cy says 11.2.16

        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!!

    Such a cute top! Love how you styled it with a pop of red- perfect!

    xo, Jennifer
