Que Bella – Vintage Zebra Dress

This weekend was perfectly gorgeous weather. I got my first soccer sun of the season (and year). My shoulders and chest turned a little red but are tanning nicely.

This what I wore to The Boy’s soccer game.

Dress: Converse One Star from Target
Belt/Sash: Liberty of London for Target Jeffs Leaf Blue Scarf
Shoes: J Crew Caribe Espadrilles in Navy
I wasn’t going to wear a belt at all with this dress. Then I saw the scarf that I was about to return to the store and the idea just hit me to make it a belt with this dress. I love it! The dress is super comfy and casual and I have it in navy as well (navy top and bottom).
(BTW-There is still A LOT of LoL at my area Targets. Every size and item. Not too many LoL lovers in Central Texas.)

Here’s what I decided on for the shower, with your help, of course! 

Dress: J Crew Blakely Dress in Vintage Zebra
Cami: The Limited
Belt: J Crew Burnished Leather Belt
Shoes: Nine West Velas in Natural Reptile
OMG! I love these shoes! I saw these in the Beige Leather on Shopping the Closet in a post by Eleanor and knew I needed to get them. When I got to NW I saw the animal print and loved it and they were 25% off! Wheeee!
The shower went well considering the girls throwing it had never done one before. They didn’t realize that, as hostesses, they need to be serving and checking on the guests, NOT the other way around. I had my cousin finally set them straight and the bride was none the wiser. I bought her something from her Target registry but threw in a little J Crew jewelry as a little something just for her. Again, it was another beautiful day and I took my Pearl Jackie just in case but never needed it.
And here’s my SUPER CASUAL outfit for today.
Tee: Hand-Cut Flower Art Tee
Skirt: Black Blossom Nico Skirt
Flip-Flops: GAP from years ago
Today is another beautiful day. I’m loving it and may try to even out this tank top tan later today.
Have a great day!

    The dress is great. This one is a Medium but I bought the navy in a small. They also had all black and all purple/magenta.

    I love all your outfit combos from this weekend!

    I like how you chic'd up the Converse dress with the belt – and I didn't realize they sold a mini with the black blossom print!

    Lisa – And shorts too! I only bought the skirt and then just recently purchased the jacket on super sale.

    Pamela – Thanks! I hope you enjoy your shoes. I'm having to make sure not to wear my every day because right now I think they go with everything.

    GingerSnap – Thank you!

    yogagirl – ::hugs:: When I saw the shoes I immediately thought of your comment during the poll about the whole "safari" theme/look. I knew I had to have them.
