Turning Heads Linkup – Burgundy Print Dress with Moto Jacket


Hi friends!

I was in the mood to style some dresses from my closet, and there are ways I style that makes the look a bit more fashionable- one is print mixing and adding texture.

How are you today? I am tired of Winter and ready for more bright sunny days. But, in the meantime, cloudy grey days do make for better pictures. We are here in a nearby development that has lovely white fences and plenty of sidewalks to walk your pup.  I had my hair done a few weeks ago, and because of the lighting, you will notice a difference in yesterday’s and today’s post. It really is about how the sun hits the hair.

I mentioned we had a fabulous time out on Valentine’s Day, and the Cottage 3-course meal with 5 wines did not break the bank. We decided to go there the day before and had no problem getting a reservation. We had a wonderful time and my hubby also bought me a beautiful magenta orchid in a pretty pot to display. I may plant it!

The Outfit

This suede moto was one purchase I bought a few years ago from Nordstrom yearly sale. I love the rich color and it mixed with much in my closet! I knew I wanted to do some print mixing, ( which you will see tomorrow as well) and do so by accessories. This leopard scarf would mix nicely with the floral print of the dress- keeping the medium print scaled with the dress print.

How else do I add to a look for more elegance? I have a few textured tights that I reach for often. These lace/textured tights add more interest and sophistication in drawing the eye in. So if you haven’t tried textured tights, give it a go!

      Thank you Shelbee! It was one of my first Karina Dresses and one of my favorites. I was in Target yesterday looking for more of the tights ( as I bought these there) and alas, they were sold out!

    I’ll have to keep this layering/adding prints and textures when I venture into wearing dresses–they seem so one-note to me–which is *my* problem, not the dress’s.

    Such a gorgeous dress! Love the colors. Love the jacket too! If your tired of winter you wouldn’t want to live in my neck of the woods. We’re still buried up to our necks in snow, I see you have grass. I’m envious!

    It was a brave move to mix up the prints, Jess and it paid off well, great outfit. Love the colour of your jacket. As our Australian winter will be here soon, i should give textured tights a go, they look great

    I love this burgundy look Jess – burgundy is one of my favourite colours – and I do love both floral and animal print, and lace tights too! The only “things” (sorry) missing are Gibson and Truffles – they are the “pawfect” (!) accessories for any outfit 😉
