put a bird on it

If you're a Portlandia fan, you know that when in doubt, put a bird on it. This dress from H&M does just that with its unusual pelican print. Subtle pleating adds a touch of elegance and keeps the silhouette soft and feminine, so it still feels like a truly classic piece. 

The Sacclum Wallet from Leather & Thread is an essential accessory — it easily fits the must-haves (cash, cards, key) — and in this stunning matte black finish, it goes with absolutely everything your wardrobe. 

While I paired this dress with ultra-glam heeled sandals from Sam Edelman, it could also transition easily into fall with over-the-knee boots, tights, and an oversized cardigan.
