Happy spring, kittens (see what I did there? I'm sorry...please don't stop reading)! It's Leah from We Live Upstairs, and I am so excited to share my first swap with you!

 Storytime: Growing up, I always seemed to have a pet cat. Never more than one at a time, but I remember a set of whiskers always being around, no matter how many times I moved...and I loved it. As an only child, it's nice to have an animal friend around, especially one that's low maintenance, in case I wanted to shut my door and hang out with my BFF Lizze McGuire and some cheese-its (like...a boxful.) Fast forward to adulthood, and I've met the person I'm currently in the process of marrying. Everything's kosher until I find out he's quite allergic to cats. Heart = broken. That is, of course, until Marisa sent me her delightful cat blouse. It would seem that a) I'm a billion years late on this trend and b) I've found a loop-hole to cure the lack of felines in my house. So thanks, Marisa, for introducing me to my new vice ; ).

I'm wearing:
Blouse: ModCloth (Marisa's)
Cardigan: Vintage
Shorts: UO
Clogs: TUTO

P.S.- Sorry about all of the hand-on-head business; the wind was out.of.control.
And be sure to check out how Marisa and Erica styled this wonderful find! I love the feminine feel of both of these looks, and it fits right in with the theme of the blouse!

  4. Yay Leah! This is such a cute look, I love how you styled it! This blouse seriously is the cuteset. I never had cats growing up because my dad was severly allergic. I'm more of a dog person but I love a good cat print!

  5. Wow, pretty look! :)

  6. aww what a bummer your future hubs is allergic to cats! I'd say you could get a naked cat but really I prefer to pet things that are soft and fuzzy so I'd opt for a dog instead if I were allergic which obviously I"m not but anyway this blouse really is the cutest! I love your spring styling w/ the high waisted shorts!

  7. Such a cute outfit. Sad that your SO is allergic to cats :( But if he's a great guy, don't let that be a deal breaker!

  8. This whole post is adorable Leah! I love how that blouse looks paired with shorts. This I will need to try :-)

  9. I love how you paired the blouse with other neutrals! That cat print is so awesome.
