By now, you shouldn't be surprised that I have been wearing more animal print than ever before. The previously shunned prints have made their way back into my life, and I have been loving how much life leopard adds to my wardrobe. Leopard is the must-have print of this season acting as both a neutral and a statement.

My boyfriend must have picked up on my new love for leopard because he surprised me with this outfit. He even picked out this circle bag, which he knew I would love! This H&M+ Short Dress is a perfect fit in many ways; the length falls on 5'2 figure just the way I like, the cinching in the waist ensures that my curves aren't lost in the flow of the dress, and the print is fierce. I am always looking for dresses that fit me well in terms of length. Because I am shorter, I can rarely ever expect a dress to fit me the way it's "supposed to fit" everyone else. The fact that this dress hits me in just the right spots is huge. I absolutely love the length because it's short enough to make me feel sexy but long enough to be practical for every occasion. Whether my boyfriend carefully considered each of these factors when he bought the dress for me or not, it was such a sweet gesture. I love wearing the dress with these Wide-Calf Knee-High Riko Boots from Eloquii, a pair of ankle booties, or block heels, depending on the occasion. I topped off the look with this Quilted Shoulder Bag. I have been obsessed with circular bags for quite some time, and I always wear this jewel-tone green circle bag—even if it doesn't match my outfit. So my boyfriend got me this bag so that I could wear it with everything! He's the best!
Before we end this blog post, shall we discuss these boots? Trust me, when fall runs around, I am SCRAMBLING to find knee-high and thigh-high boots that are also wide calf. When I saw that Eloquii sold wide calf knee-high boots with a low block heel, I was sold. So I rushed into my local Eloquii and tried on the Riko boot. They fit very well, but the top of the boot was a little different than the rest...it was much tighter, which kind of made my lower high look like it was being squeezed. It wasn't the best look at first, but I started wearing the boots just under my knee, and I think they look best that way!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2X in the H&M+ Short Dress is a perfect fit, which is my usual size, and the dress fits perfectly! I am wearing a size 8 in the  Wide-Calf Knee-High Riko Boots from Eloquii, which is one size smaller than my usual size. The boots are also wide fit, which is why I sized down.
