Leopard print maxi dress - Angl,  Black lace bandeau (underneath) - Nordstrom,  Bag - MNG Mango, Beaded sandals - Steve Madden "Bride", Mint and silver ring - F21, Nail polish - Kiss the Bride by Orly


When you're wearing head to toe leopard, I think it's best to keep the rest of the look very simple. Hardly any jewelry, chic flat sandals, and a nude/pink nail allows me to feel comfortable and put-together instead of over-the-top. How do you girls think I did on the styling? Simple is key, right? As a maxi dress novice, I feel out of my element wearing such a long dress with such a...such a print! I do love it though, and I am so proud of myself for stepping out of my comfort zone. I like it so much that I want to find another in a solid color, preferably black. That way, I can wear more accessories.
In writing this, I thought it was funny that the style of the SM sandals are called bride, while the polish I chose is called Kiss the bride. Hmmmm...a sign of things to come? Someday! I'll keep this look in mind if I ever get my wishes and have a wedding on the beach =)
Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
