Anyone else hesitant to buy patterned clothing? Styles are always changing and prints/patterns are part of that change. I usually do not buy tons of patterned clothing since I am trying to buy more pieces that can mix and match together to make my wardrobe more versatile. However, neutral patterns which can be worn different ways and with basics you already own are good choices. This dress is not a leopard print but more of a spot print in two of my favorite colors; camel and black. It can be worn so many ways, not just as a dress. Today, I am going to show you the top 3 easy ways I will style this dress. If you have a pair of sandals, a pair of white sneakers or a pair of slides/mules then that covers footwear. (In the fall, you can also pair with booties)
Next, you can pair a basic t-shirt or a concert/graphic style t-shirt to make the dress into a skirt look. A denim jacket can go over the dress for chilly days and you can dress the look up with switching out the denim jacket for a blazer and heeled wedges. By making one item so versatile, it will get you more wear out of the item and therefore more bang for your buck.
Did I mentioned, this dress is from a locally owned online boutique. You can shop here. Support a locally owned small business with this cute patterned dress and/or many other Women’s apparel items.
All other items are linked in my LIKEtoKNOW.it profile. Head over to the LIKEtoKNOW.it app to shop the look. Search for My Brunette Adventure OR Jessica Bryant

Happy 4th of July from my family to yours! Wishing you all a safe and fun day with your family and friends. This will be a short post today as I need to go clean my house and put everything back in our master bedroom after laying new flooring.
Sharing my quick 4th of July look. I love wearing this top in a front knot to shorten the length and make it a little more ‘crop’ like. The hat backwards had me feeling my inner 90’s kid-self. Sometimes you just have to love a laid back 4th of July look to finish off your long weekend.

Hope you are enjoying your long weekend and glad I could bring you all some outfit inspiration for the 4th of July. I have been MIA for 3 months here on the blog. Sorry! Life has been very busy but good busy. The boutique is doing great! We recently took another adventure which I will be sharing here sooner or later. Between working a full-time job, running a full-time business, and just life I am trying to schedule in blog shoots/posts as best I can while it is warmer weather.
Today’s post includes products from 7th & Park Boutique, my boutique, and my favorite converse sneakers. Summer weekends for me include comfortable and easy looks. Get my complete look for $100. All of these pieces are great for mixing and matching with other pieces in your closet. I hear a lot of readers say they can’t pull off a hat. I think a lot of ladies think they can’t pull off wearing a hat, but it is one of those things you don’t wear often so you think it looks foreign on you. For those second and third day hair days, wear a hat. You can wear a hat, trust me you will rock it.
Hope you all have a safe and fun long weekend! I will be sharing a beauty haul I did last month as well here soon.
