A few months ago (back in October), I shared a shift dress in snow cat print. I originally purchased it on a deep discount from J.Crew to wear to my cousin’s wedding. So, as you can imagine, I wore it dressed up with a pair of pumps and an envelope clutch.
But what about regular, everyday wear? When I purchased the dress, I fully intended to wear it for everyday occasions as well.
When you are dressing down a nicer frock, it can come down to a simple change – of shoes and handbag. Don’t you love when it can be so easy? I swapped out my hot pink pumps for a pair of black pointy toe flats, and traded out my clutch for my studded black handbag. It takes the dress down a notch, in my opinion! If the weather was a bit cooler, I’d throw on a pair of opaque black tights or leggings and wear the dress with my black boots – another option for dressing down. Sadly, the weather never did get cold enough for me to do that this season: oh well!
I love the little details on this dress. I was initially drawn by the print, of course, but once I got up close it was clear there were so many more things going on. The dress has two pockets in the front – yay! And the keyhole detail in the back is oh so simple but adds a sweet touch. The snow cat print is no longer for sale, but the Jules dress IS! If you’re looking for a classic shift dress, definitely keep your eye out for a version you like to go on sale. This Fanfare print Jules dress is currently on sale…and the solid color versions in wool are on sale for only $59.99! The Scroll Print version isn’t on sale yet, but it is oh so pretty for spring!
