Dose of Prose: 

I found this beautiful Zara dress on sale at TJ Maxx the other day and couldn't wait to style it. The patchwork design gives it a real Earthy, tribal, feel, and the neoprene material makes it the perfect transition piece between summer and fall or from winter to spring. I paired this dress with tan and brown accessories because I wanted the dress to be the focus of the look.

I think some knee-high boots would be a great option to wear with this dress as well. I love dresses like this one because it's so versatile, comfy and easy to thrown on with minimal effort if you're on the go. My overall styling tip for wearing patterns is to keep your accessories and shoes simple so that you won't overwhelm your look with too many clashing colors. Let the patchwork be the focus of your look, and play around with materials instead (ie. fringe, velvet, suede, etc.).
