Wore: Mixing Animal Prints

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

I must have a need to go on a safari or something after putting together this outfit. I laughed at myself after selecting the pieces to complete the look because I didn’t really mean to combine animal prints, it just happened that way. I was trying to find new ways to wear my black maxi dress and to take it into a new season. And I think it worked.

Since the maxi dress is a neutral, my options for accessories are pretty limitless. This is one of my absolute favorite scarves (thanks Very Jane!) and the zebra flats are seriously the most comfortable flats ever. I feel like I’m wearing slippers whenever I have those babies on. I like the look because while I am wearing two different animal prints, it isn’t overkill. The scarf and the shoes add just the right amount of pop to my black dress without overpowering each other or the whole outfit.

Dress: Old Navy.
Scarf: Very Jane.
Shoes: Target.

What do you think? Do you like mixing animal prints? I’m all about mixing prints and I know think I’m a fan of multiple animal prints in one outfit.

I’m linking up with Style Elixir for Style Sessions, The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesdays and Because Shanna Said So for Random Wednesdays.

  6. admittedly..i bought a maxi from old navy the last time your wrote a post about it! i just realized, after looking at these pictures, that i didn't get quite the same one, and it is in gray. i haven't transitioned mine to fall yet so this gives me inspiration to try that this weekend! thanks! xoxo
