Shift Into The Wild

Dress: ASOS| Sandals: Mossimo (similar herehere)| Hangbag: Anne Klein| Accesories: Forever 21
Happy Monday! Yes, it is Monday... again. Time to get back to business. I hope you all enjoyed the holiday weekend. I certainly enjoyed spending quality time with my family. It's always hard to say goodbye to the weekend, but saying goodbye is not always such a bad thing. It's the end of one good thing, and the beginning of a better one.

I'm starting my week on a positive note and to match my cheery attitude, I am wearing this colorful, and daring little shift dress. Before I get into the details of my outfit, let me just say that I have to give credit to the very stylish Mrs. KT Reed from KTR Style for finding this amazing dress. I am a die hard leopard print lover, and I am also crazy about colors, especially fun and girly colors. When I saw KT post a photo of her wearing this dress, I fell in love immediately. Not only is it leopard print, but it's purple leopard. I couldn't resist, so I had to buy it and make it part of my leopard collection.

Shift dresses are one of my top favorite dress styles. I love the loose-fitting, boxy cut of this dress. They don't accentuate your body shape, which leaves a lot to the imagination. This big bold print works well with a shift dress because it allows for all the attention to go towards the dress and not the figure. Shift dresses are typically acceptable to wear to work. This purple leopard dress can be worn to an office that either does creative work, or whose dress code is business casual.

I wore this dress with metallic silver and black strappy sandals and a black satchel to match the bold black print on the dress. The subtle mix of metallic details makes it a little more dressy and the purple nails and lips make it extra bold and bring out the darker purple color of the dress. If you're looking to tone down the look a little, instead of wearing the purple lips and nails, you can always go for a nude lip and/or light purple nails. For my hair, I decided to make a high bun and drop a few curls on the side to to create a sleek and feminine look.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope that this look inspires you to step outside the box, and gives you the courage to take a walk on the wild side. Thanks again for stopping by my blog. See you on the next style post!
