First and foremost, I can't thank you enough for the overwhelming support I received from you all regarding my dad's health. I feel undeservedly privileged to have you guys as readers. :) I'm also sorry to hear about those of you who are going through or have just gone through something similar. For what it's worth, I spent some time last night praying for each of you and your families by name for strength, encouragement, and peace.
So, from that...is there any real good transition to talking about style? If someone has one, let me know because I'm stumped. This is another outfit from my time in St. Louis, and it's the first time I've worn my new LOFT dress. The idea of an animal print dress used to freak me out a little because the immediate image was one that was also slinky, usually too tight, and overall generally too "sexy" of a vibe for my taste. But this dress is none of that.
I think an animal print dress, when the cut and pattern is right, can be very versatile for parties, dates, and an office setting. I could pair this with a blazer for a more professional look, or peep toe heels and blinging jewelry for going out. I was delighted to find a bunch of other animal print dress options that I think could work for multiple settings:
