I love color and pattern mixing. I always get asked how I choose what to mix. Honestly I don’t really think about it. I am unapologetically myself and I really don’t follow many fashion rules. Having said that if I look back at outfits that I’ve put together usually there is a common color involved when I pattern mix. In the case of this Leota Dress, I knew immediately that I wanted to pair it with something Leopard. Another way to pattern mix is to mix the scales. The scale of the leopard spots is bigger then that of the flowers in this Enchanting print.
I love using Leopard in the Fall and it would be absolutely tragic if Leopard ever got tacky. Wait its not tacky, is it?!?! I think that given the right stripe you could actually style this dress with a striped jacket if you are really bold! But this Leota Jacket would be really cool as well even with the Top thats in this Enchanting Print.
The fabric on this Maya Dress is really versatile, I dressed it down with these camel colored suede booties and a denim cropped jacket. I styled it on my instagram with just heels for a dressier look.
While, the Leota team graciously sent me this beautiful dress, I have mentioned before that I fell in love with the brand from buying a couple of pieces in the Cheesecake Boutique in Upper Arlington. Jessica at CB is a genius at finding fits for your body type and the bonus with Leota is that most of the fabrics travel really well.
Oh I forgot to mention that founder, Sarah Carson uses women of all shapes and sizes in her campaigns, which I absolutely love! I love what she says on her site, “Dry cleaning is expensive so we make our product machine washable. They are wrinkle free because we have better things to do than iron.”
Thank You! #Leotainthewild
