Wearing Animal Prints All Year Long!
I can’t even begin to express how grateful I am for all the well wishes I received from Crazy Blonde Life readers as I was going through such a horrible ordeal with my appendectomy. I ended up back in the hospital with a secondary infection and just got home from the hospital last night (Thursday). It’s going to be a longer road back than I realized, but I know I’m on the mend finally. I am absolutely positive that your good energy got me through the worst of it and it was horrible. I realized as I said in my previous post that some lifestyle changes definitely need to happen as I recover from all of this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support…my heart is so full of gratitude and appreciation!
The blog has been full of designs by Julie Miles lately and this cheetah dress is another one of her designs. I had the opportunity to have a trunk show with Julie not long ago and I tried on so many of her things and I’ll admit that quite a few of them ended up in my closet and I’m so excited to wear them and share them here! This dress is a dress for all seasons, but so perfect for this time of the year! I am always cold when we go out to dinner and love to have a dress with sleeves that is stylish but keeps me comfortable. It has just a bit of ruching at the stomach making it very flattering and it just hangs perfectly. I paired it with a really old pair of Diane Von Furstenberg heels that went perfectly, some simple jewelry and a glass of wine! I’m linking similar shoes in a boutique below as well as some favorite summer makeup and jewelry.
As far as wearing this dress for other seasons…in the fall, I would add boots with bare legs and maybe a cute furry vest and in winter, boots with tights. Its just such a cute and versatile dress that you’ll want to wear it all year long!
