I think wearing a bold print is a statement. It requires certain level of confidence, walking into the room, knowing that people may actually look and notice you and whatever you are wearing, knowing that they will have opinions about it, one way or another and that you are OK with that. I usually shy away from patterned trousers, pattern mixing, high contrast and bold geometric prints. There is no way I could handle Verushka dress or some of the more whimsical prints, causing people to stare at various parts of my body, trying to figure out what is happening in the scene.
This is about as bold as I can go:

I love this Banana Republic jersey knit dress. It is perfect for travelling, because it does not wrinkle and does not show stains easily. For the office, I usually add a cardigan or, like below, a shirt, since the A/C is on full blast. The dress has self ties attached that you criss-cross in front and tie in the back or double wrap them and tie in front. It is quite slimming and it has bra friendly wider straps, with bra hooks.

I also wanted to get the skirt to wear as a hook-up but could never find it and it was store only. I even tried to convince Dina to sell me hers at one point, but she did not want to part with it. I understand.

I must have mentioned at some point that but my fantasy outfits revolve around boho/hippie themes. I have this image of myself gathering flowers in the meadows, carefree in my flowy maxi dress. Or walking the beach at sunset in some boho ensemble.
This top from Free People was bough with this image in mind. I do love it, even if it has limited possibilities for my lifestyle.

That's all folks!
Do you wear bold prints or do you prefer to stay with solids?
