I donned this getup for a girlfriend's wedding back in February. I love a classic black and white piece with a little bit of a surprise element...hence the leather paneling. I liked the modern look of this dress and it's definitely a staple that I can recycle again and again! However, I did have a bracelet on at the time with spikes on it and over the course of the night I snagged the dress at least 5 times across the front. Looks like I need to do a little maintenance and tuck those pesky threads back where they belong...dangit.

Anywho. As with any black and white item, it's fun to add a pop of color to it, so when I found these booties at Zara marked down from $89 to $19...I mean, hellllooooo. Obvs I had to snatch them right up and add them to my stash of shoes that can't be worn every day. Yes, I paired the look with my favorite leopard clutch that you've seen a zillion times on on this blog. Get over it. Leopard's a neutral and can and will be worn with everything.

I know you're probably like oh, another dress + boot look. I've mentioned before that I'm a big fan of the ankle boot + short dress/skirt/shorts look. It edges up your look a little and I always like a little spice. Good thing it's spring. 'Tis the season to show a little leg! Keyword, "little", gals....don't get crazy, you hoochie mamas.

To quote the hilarious Lena Dunham (Hannah) in the show "GIRLS" on HBO, "I don't want to wear appropriate pants because I'm pretty sure one could go through life wearing shortie shorts everyday and offend almost no one."

Happy Monday AND April everyone! It's going to be a good day.
