I have a love obsession with leopard. We’ve been in an intense relationship for years, ever since I found a perfect pair of leopard print ballet flats at Target. They were perfect: cheap, comfortable, and I received endless compliments on them. I wore them until they literally fell apart. I have been on a hunt for a new pair since that day.

Leopard is the new “it” neutral these days and I have quite a few pieces in my closet (enough to feel well-rounded, not so much that I could be mistaken for Snooki). The shoes remain elusive, as I cannot seem to find a pair that are so well-priced or comfortable as my first. But a leopard print clutch–should be simple, right?

It took me almost an entire year to find just the right one. There are many beautiful options, but I wanted one that was roomy, not made of calf hair, and didn’t break the bank. I wanted to find it in a store and not have to go through the endless circle of ordering, hating, returning.

I ended up with this gorgeous clutch from Aldo, which also happened to be on sale:

I love this clutch so much and have found it to be really versatile, taking me from daytime work meetings to evening drinks with my girlfriends. I love that it is not made from calf hair but still shows the print so vibrantly. It is roomy and won’t get ruined if it happens to rain.

Here are some ways that I pair my leopard clutch with things I love to wear every day:
