Safari Style

I love animals and I love color, so this safari print dress had my name written all over it! Well, actually, it has giraffes, elephants, and lions (oh my!) all over it but you get the point! The print of this dress is from the J. Crew Ratti collection, which always has the most stunning prints. This summer, J. Crew featured the safari print on everything from a button-down shirt to pajama style pants, so if you like the print but don't want it in a dress you have a lot of other options from which to choose. (If you are like me, though, you will want all three!) Speaking of dresses, this dress is J. Crew's very popular tiered "popover dress", which has become a staple silhouette over the last few years if you are an avid J. Crew shopper. It seems like every season J. Crew does at least a few versions of the dress, all of which always sell out very quickly. This is my third "popover dress", so, as you can see, I am definitely a fan!

In a previous post from last week, I wrote about my dismay that I would not be visiting Palm Springs for a while due to the extreme heat that the area is known for this time of year. One of the things I really want to do in Palm Springs is go to the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens. Although I've been there before, I would like to go back again. Also, you can now feed a giraffe, which seems like something I should add to my bucket list! I can't think of a better dress for such an activity because the print features a giraffe on it, unless the giraffe drools on my dress while getting her treat! Luckily, I don't think giraffes even drool so I'm probably safe!  My dog William, on the other hand, is another story when it comes to drool!

  1. OMG, Katie, this dress just made my day! I love the print and the colors and the way you accessorized! Absolutely brilliant. And that mural is the perfect backdrop! I have never fed a giraffe, but I have gone for a ride on an elephant! I am terrified of heights and elephants are really tall! It was scary but a really cool experience! Thanks for linking up.
