Styling Animal Print, Black and Leather! πŸ™€πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ‘πŸ¦

October 17, 2019

Still a Bit Dreary …

This outfit is from last weekend because I have been quite unwell and haven’t been out and about much to get photos.

The weather continued to be a bit cool and so I dug deep in my little wardrobe down at the farm and found this black with animal print dress …

I always love a bodycon style dress and this simple and comfortable shape with bracelet length sleeves in heavy jersey was perfect for a cool day and a nice seafood dinner out at a new place – for us…

As a person who suffers anxiety, I generally prefer a routine where I know what to expect and tend to go to the same places, but we decided to give another place a go!

You’ve seen before that I love to pair animal print with black.

I feel that it breaks up the black and gives it a bit of a lift, as you can see here Here

It was cold enough to wear tights, booties and a cropped black leather jacket.

Although, as usual it was sunny so I had my sunnies on for the pics, along with my cute brass robot necklace and old gold lion brooch.

I’m also wearing my bee brooch and hoping to see them manifested here with our honey…

I am loving that my fabulous wisteria is flowering and that my grapevine is returning to leaf as well – hopefully we can keep the wildlife like the wombats, wallabies and goannas away from them so that they can continue to grow!!

I’m hoping for a better week next week and that my health picks up, although I understand that this healing process is not as easy as I’d like it to be.

Thank you for joining me in my little corner of the web, and I’d love to hear what you think about wearing black in the comments below!

    This knit dress has a very interesting pattern. The classic swirls with leopard is so unexpected. Great find and styling.

      Thank you, Nicole – I love the swirling print too and the way it curves around the silky smoothness of the heavy jersey!! πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™€οΈβ€οΈπŸ

    Donna, what a cool pattern on this dress with the swirlies of animal print! So unique and sassy. I love a dress paired with a leather jacket and boots. It always looks so cool! I am sorry you are not feeling well. Sending you lots of positive healing energy. Thanks for linking up with me this week.
