Leopard bags in the coveted and current round shape are trending and costly, but I found mine at a tag sale 3 or 4 summers ago for three dollars ! Gulp! Yes, I did. Shopping second-hand pays off dearly! Featuring a comfy as pajamas look today, in a floral shift dress with pockets! Paired with comfortable Sam Edelman booties, I am fashionably heeled and relaxed.
Is there anything more comfortable than a loose shift dress with pockets? No, I do not think so! This one was bought locally at a mom and pop shop! I don’t often wear synthetics, but am grateful that this is polyester crepe. I can clean house is this and not worry. I like to clean house, by the way. Are your surprised at that, I wonder?
Leopard bags and leopard accessories are clearly trending.
However, animals prints are always in style and are even considered a neutral when it comes to pattern mixing. Certainly you know my penchant for pattern play! Florals and leopards prints are so easy to wear together!
YOU last saw these leopard boots at the designer show house. Doesn’t a setting lend a profoundly different vibe to a photo?

It’s been hot here! I only go out in the late afternoon. This heat wave is somewhat alarming. We worry about the elderly and homeless. Yet, I smile and carry on, putting my anxiety about the state of the world, in one of my aforementioned pockets, and moving forward. Taxi please!
Floral patterns always make me smile. See a close up below. Whether trendy or not, I have always loved leopards bags and bold flowery prints . I wear them even when they are not trending, as you well know!
Below a shot of the boots, bag, ring and bracelet. These boots were a TJMaxx find, ( similar here, but in a fun western rendition, and from a small boutique ) all others came from small and local stores, but for the bag, from the fun tag sale. Yay!
Are you feeling this fun mix? Yes, I see many of my dear blogging friends wearing this punchy pattern. Leopard lives on!
I do want to take a moment to say that I am currently battling my autoimmune disease and have been a bit absent on your posts and less visible on Instagram. Many doctor appointments are scheduled, boo! But I have confidence that I will improve very soon, and cant wait to visit your blogs more often !
Happy summer week my dear friends. Thank you for reading along!
