Pattern Alchemy

I'm currently having a love affair with maxi dresses, and this one is no exception. They're the first thing I reach for on the weekend when I'm looking for something both comfortable and stylish. I found this Topshop dress at Nordstrom and had to have it. 

The clutch is also Topshop, and the patterns really work well together. My philosophy on animal prints is that they are basically neutrals and go with everything. This clutch is living proof.

I was lucky enough to catch the last of our Indian Summer on this day trip to the wine country, and this dress was perfect for the occasion. If you look closely, you'll see a photobombing kitty in the background who followed us around De La Montanya Winery, so I'm lucky to have caught a shot with this cutie!

The dress and clutch are still in stores and linked below! I also linked similar shoes and accessories.
