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.
Want to know the best news ever? You can get this look on major sale! Head here for the top and here for the bottoms. They run true to size!
