I tend to shy away from really bold patterns. They can be hard to wear and draw a lot of attention, sometimes good, sometimes not so good.
Let’s face it: animal prints are super hard to wear without looking cheesy. Even my favorite celebrities have worn animal prints and been on the worst dressed list.
But when I saw this Blumarine dress on sale at Neiman Marcus a few years ago, I had to have it. The animal print is fun and not too overwhelming, particularly because this is a day dress. It doesn’t have sequins or embellishment; it’s not even made from a fussy fabric.
Instead, it’s an easy to wear dress that’s perfect for running errands or shopping. I paired it with my cat sunglasses to keep the theme going as well as satin sandals with feathers. Okay, so I went a little animal crazy 😉
My tiny Gucci bag (read: my phone barely fits) was the perfect accompaniment. It’s actually one of my favorite bags – I just wish a little more fit in it. Phones are so big these days that not much else fits in this bag.
Together, all the brown tones pair well. I had fun wearing this outfit, and sometimes that’s all life is about.
