Everyone once in a while, you get lucky and come across a once-in-a-blue-moon, breathtaking and completely unique piece that leaves you no choice but to add it to your wardrobe. This dalmatian dot top and matching bottoms? You guessed it… I didn’t stand a chance!
TOP dalmatian dot ruffle top (on sale!) | SHORTS dalmatian dot shorts (on sale!) | BAG rebecca minkoff love crossbody (similar to this Chanel bag) | SHOES stuart weitzman ‘the nudist’ heels (similar, less expensive here) | EARRINGS black tassel earrings (old H&M, similar linked)
Seriously, how darling is that dalmatian pattern? I was rushing through Dillard’s, of all places, on a mission to find something completely unrelated when this stopped me in my tracks. Interestingly enough, I had seen both the ruffle top and shorts online before and passed them over. But I quickly noticed that there’s a beautiful quality to the material that can’t be captured in photos… a thick, rich sheen that speaks to the quality and design behind this ensemble. I couldn’t try it on fast enough!
At full retail, this blouse and short duo lies above what I’d normally shell out for an outfit. But what I love about it, is that this pairing gives you not one but three different looks! Wear the top and bottoms together, or mix them up! Pair a black skirt with the top for date night or a black peplum top with the shorts for an afternoon of shopping. Since temperatures stay very mild late into fall, I can’t wait to play with these to pieces to create numerous show-stopping outfits.
