Sequins and Sea Breezes: Zebra Is A Neutral, Right?

Zebra Is A Neutral, Right?

9/04/2014

I seriously can't believe it's Thursday already! I wish all weeks flew by as fast as this one! Wait, actually maybe I don't. It's a good thing this week but maybe slowing down wouldn't be a bad thing. I don't think I'm quite ready for this year to be over yet. However, I am ready for the weekend. UCF has a bye week this week (I'm definitely a little sad about this) so I'm hoping to get some relaxing in this weekend since last weekend was super hectic and I apparently managed to strain/pull my neck this week working out. Oops. Some quality time with my bed/couch seems like just what the doctor ordered. 

So I found this dress at H&M and loved the print and the style but it was a little big on me. Since they were completely out of the next size down I just decided to go for the bigger size and see what I could do with it. When I got home I got the genius idea to belt the dress and see how it looked. I'm still not completely sold on the belt with it but I definitely don't hate it either. I'm definitely feeling the animal print this week (if you haven't noticed) and I thought this was a fun mix up from my normal leopard print. Hey, zebra(ish) can be a neutral too.... right? 

Also, be sure to vote for me for the Wear, Share & Win contest here! Pretty please with a cherry on top?? :)

  11. I like the addition of the belt, what a cute dress. A weekend being lazy sounds amazing and I'd love to do it too. Here's hoping I get some couch time on Sunday.

  15. Well since it's black and white, it technically has to be a neutral. :) Love this dress, it looks great belted. Good thinking to try that!

  37. The belt definitely works and loving this dress on you so much. If it wasn't before, we're pretty sure zebra has to be a neutral now. It's perfection!!
