black dress with a pop of cheetah

April 15, 2015

My outfit details: DRESS: Old Navy // SHOES: Steve Madden old, similar here, and loving these super cute leopard shoes // NECKLACE: BaubleBar (my favorite!) // SMALL CROSS NECKLACE: Dogeared // EARRINGS: Kendra Scott // BRACELETS: Tiffany & Co.Made in Mechanicsville c/o, Starletta Designs c/o, Alex and Ani // LIPS: Wet N' Wild

I love the versatility that some articles of clothing provide, like this black dress. I don't know if you guys remember, but I styled the same dress here a couple weeks back. It is such a simple (but super cute) dress that I know I will be able to style it a million different ways in the future. It is so important to buy pieces that you know you will be able to wear with unique pieces, like these leopard and red shoes. Because let's be honest, finding something to match those is not an easy task... If you find a simple piece that you can re-style a billion ways, don't hesitate to buy it! Pieces like that are rare to find. I also want to apologize for how often I wear this necklace. But I think it's too darn cute to stay locked up in my jewelry organizer...

My school's formal is this Saturday (Yes, my college has formals, awesome right!?) and I am wearing these extremely tall, chunky, almost-too-tall-to-walk-in, heels. Last time I tried to wear these shoes was for my birthday dinner back in December. I chickened out and went for a pair of easier-to-walk-in black wedged shoes. But not this time! I am determined to rock these! Now I'm sending out a dare to you over the internet (you, yes YOU!) I am daring/challenging you to wear anything that you have sitting in your closet that you love, but have been to scared to wear in public. This is your time. You can do it! I believe in you :)

Thanks for stopping by! And I hope that you know how much I appreciate you.
