Last week, this little leopard dress made it’s blog debut, and boy, was it all dolled up. But that was last week…who’s ready for round two? This time around in 2xTuesday, I’m keeping things casual.

Overall, this dress definitely resides towards the more formal section of my closet, so toning down the dressiness of it should be a difficult task, right? So wrong - it’s the easiest thing to completely change the tone of an entire outfit through your footwear (which is an excellent supporting argument for womens’ shoe obsession if I’ve ever heard one). Whenever my eyes are wandering around my closet searching for something to keep my look casual, I always end up reaching for a motorcycle boot – the fit is relaxed, the extra buckles and studs throw an edgy vibe into the mix, and there’s this je-ne-sais-quoi about biker-inspired anything that just exudes cool.

A structured topper, some chunky jewelry, & a pair of aviators finish off the look, and I’m ready for the day….or at least brunch. Who’s buying?
