Leopard Print #1

Madewell dress (on sale), Rag and Bone boots (on sale),
Ray Ban Sunglasses (old), Truth and Pride leather jacket (old),
Relics by Tami bracelet-one of a kind (click here for the designer's website)

For some unknown reason, I’ve been into leopard print this season-So far, I’ve bought four pieces.  I’ll showcase them separately since I don’t plan to wear them together (though I’ve learned never to say never).  This dress showed me how to think outside my “California box” a bit. 

I liked this dress when I saw it about 1-1/2 months ago, and thought “If I still lived in California, I’d buy it since I could wear it year round.  I didn’t buy it at the time, but it was always in the back of my mind.   When I saw it again, it was on sale, and I realized I could wear it year-round if I used a little creativity.  In the fall, I can wear it as shown with a leather jacket and boots; I’ll add tights in the winter.  In spring, I’ll pair it with my olive D’Orsay flats and a light sweater and will wear it with colorful sandals in the summer.  Though I can’t say I’m a “New Englander,” at least I’m learning to dress for the seasons!
