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.

Hello October! If you follow me on Instagram you know my favorite season is here. It also happens to be my anniversary month! Cannot believe it has been two years since my hubby and I said our “I do’s”. Time flies when you are having fun! The month of October always brings all of my favorite Fall things; the crisp air, the hot chocolate in cute coffee mugs, pumpkins-fall decorations, fall fashion and so many other “Fall” things. Did you all wear your boots and booties yet? I sure have been wearing them any chance I get during the cooler days.
Can we talk about this deep burgundy/wine/purple dress! No really sure the exact color. We all have ‘problem areas’ and mine happens to be my middle section so I stay away from things that show my ‘problem area’. This swing dress was perfect to give me room and the color is to die for. 🙂 Adding accessories is always my favorite part of completing a look. This tan floppy hat was perfect along with a dainty gold ring to put together my look. I recently looked through my closet to see what mix and match pieces I have to create new Fall outfits this season. Then, it was time to make a ‘must have’ list along with a ‘wish list’ for Fall/Winter clothing.
Be sure to head over to the boutique to shop our NEW arrivals! We restocked our plaid blanket scarf. www.7thandPark.com
Hope you all have a great weekend!
