I’m super excited to share my third Stylinity collaboration with you guys – I’ll be featuring Wet Seal, Bobbi Brown, AND of course, my new favorite Steve Madden sandals today so you’re in for a treat.
Heads up, this post is photo heavy because it’s another NYC Dennis Christians shoot. We trekked to the NY High Line during the early morning to take these photos. If you want to see more of our work together, click here!
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m a huge fan of mock necks. When I saw this dress at Wet Seal, it was like love at first sight. I knew I had to have it because everything from color to cut was on point, and the versatility’s a huge bonus. I absolutely love that it can be dressed both up AND down. As you can see, I went with a casual but polished vibe for today’s OOTD – to get an extra 30% off your purchase, click here.
I’m a sucker for summer layering so I threw on a lightweight cardigan on top. I’m wearing it in taupe, but this adorable cocoon cardigan is available in two other colors as well: heather gray & charcoal. As you all know, I tend to prefer slightly looser fits so I went with a S, but an XS would’ve worked too.
To finish off my look, I carried my Tory Burch crossbody and wore strappy Steve Madden heels to match. A pop of animal print can seriously work miracles! I’m sure you all know this by now, but I’m a huge fan of prints. It’s a tough call (because I’m also obsessed with stripes & florals), but animal print may just be my favorite out of them all.
If you’re shy, start small. Try incorporating a bit of it into your everyday look with heels or sunglasses. If you like the way it looks and feels, try wearing animal print blouses and skirts as well! If you’re feeling really bold, try pairing animal print with yet another pattern to make a fashion forward statement.
Now, let’s take a closer look at my Steve Madden sandals! Aren’t they cute? Love, love, LOVE his designs. His shoes never disappoint, and they always ooze quality and sophistication. What do you guys think of the brand – are you a fan or not so much? Which shoe brands have your heart? Let me know by leaving a comment below.
