40 + Style I Wore This Winter

Black & Leopard

Leopard is really just a basic.  So, let’s all just get on board with that idea and everything will be awesome.  Capiche?  I picked up this lovely dress at J. Crew a while back for an incredible steal.  I think it ended up being $47.  I love a good deal.  No, really.  I LOVE A GOOD DEAL.  Nothing makes me happier. Well, maybe watching videos of Corgi puppies on YouTube.  But I digress…

The thing about this lovely dress is that it is short-sleeved and I live in Michigan where it is currently freezing balls.  That is the technical term.  The only way that I was going to be able to wear this dress anytime before spring was if I layered.  I didn’t want to wear something over it, because HELLO…  Cute zippers.  So, I decided to layer underneath.  Voila!  Cute and warm.

It was snowing again when these pictures were taken.  I know you are shocked.  So, those are snowflakes not fuzzies on my lovely dress.

My dog is a stalker.  I thought it was funny that he snuck in to this picture.
