Animal Print & Red

Whenever I think of animal print, my first instinct is always to pair it with red.  I hadn’t worn this dress in awhile, and when I pulled it out of my closet, I immediately went for my leopard print cardigan.  I guess it’s hard to break old habits!  Happy Friday!

Also, today I’m guest posting for the amazing Audrey from Putting Me Together…be sure to head on over and check her awesome blog out!

    I love the red dress and the leopard print is great but doesn’t take away from the main focus. The accessories are spot on! Love the whole look :)
