I paired this dress with leopard-print shoes, ideal for the summer-into-fall transition.

These leopard shoes have a slight kitten heel and are under $90. Scoop ’em up while you still can!

WHAT I’M WEARING:

 marigold dress (s/o but similar here + more below) | leopard shoes c/o | similar sunnies | flask bangle | swan bag c/o | gold wrap ring c/o | similar arrow cuff bracelet (that I bought in Lionel Richie’s living room — LA is weird!)

While my marigold dress has long since sold out, I’ve linked to some favorite marigold pieces below.

Warning: If you hate this hue now, you might just be like me and do a complete 180 by October. 🙂

p.s. I picked up this ochre cardigan too and am eyeing this marigold blouson sleeve sweater + this AMAZING MUSTARD FAUX FUR COAT!
