A while ago, Shelbee and I had the Paisley print as a theme for The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book. I only had a paisley scarf then. Have never been such a fan of this print. But I immediately liked the scarf because of the brown tones. Brown is a good color for me. And then, when I was browsing the Zara site, like a few times a week, I saw this dress. Well how coincidental is that then! As if the dress was meant for me right? Just say yes!
My first Paisley print
But I really thought this Paisley print dress was stunning! The colors are very beautiful, brown, anthracite grey and very beautiful green tones. And with the white boots it is a super easy but very nice look. I am still so in love with these boots! Although they are just a bit too high for me. It doesn’t matter, I don’t walk far distances. Here I wear the dress with a leather jacket, but I also often wear it with my black blazer.
How to style a Paisley print
I think the best way to style this paisley dress is to combine it with basic colors. To let the dress and the print stand out. You could wear a jacket or cardigan in one of the colors of the dress, I tried it. I wore a brown blazer on the dress, but then I don’t know were to look at. At the blazer or the dress. And then both don’t come out good.
So I choose for basic colors. And not the same, tried that too but that is to boring. For example, if I would wear black boots under the dress. Can you imagine it, boring. Now the dress is the highlight of the outfit. The only accessories I am wearing are huge golden loops and a white ring. The waist is a bit to high for my liking, but it’s elastic so it’s not really a problem. Can’t wait to wear this dress with sneakers too!

That is a gorgeous dress, Nancy! I love the way you’ve styled it. And now you’re making me think I need white boots……
Haha, bloggers do that to each other!
Paisley is one of my favorite prints. I often doodle pictures of paisleys. They are so intricate and each one is different. Like snowflakes!
Your paisley print dress is so pretty. And paired perfectly with those tall white boots. I have white booties but I wish they were tall boots. I think they would be more versatile. You wear everything so well, Nancy.
Oh thank you very much Leslie! Enjoy your weekend!
That’s a beautiful dress and you look pretty in it!
Oh yes Nancy you look stunning! This dress is amazing and I love this boots too ?
I wish you a great weekend!
Thanks Tina! Have a good weekend!
You have a wonderful talent at putting together fabulous looks. Your choice of white boots was brilliant. I hope that you have a great weekend.
Oh that is so very nice of you Rena! Thank you very much. Have a great weekend!
Fabulous boots Nancy and loving the paisley!
Great outfit. I really like the leather jacket with the dress, giving it edge and I think it pairs well with the white boots that I really feel are the statement of this outfit. Great look. Have a great weekend.
Thank you very much! Have a fab weekend!
Lovely colours in the print. I don’t know why I don’t have any paisley! xx
I don’t know either! I think a paisley print in pink and brown would look fabulous on you!
Nancy I say you are brilliant to style this paisley number with white boots – yes, brown would be boring and YOU are meant to stand out! The dress is beautiful!
Oh that’s so kind of you but I really don’t think I stand out! Actually, sometimes I feel I’m invisible!
Such an attractive and useful dress Nancy, I love the comfort of an elasticated waist. You’ve got some great colors in the dress you could use as an alternative for your cami – teal, olive, or that lovely pinky brown.
Your color guru Pamela x
Thanks Pamela! Yes I think I need to find a teal one! That would be a good color for a jacket!
Nancy, this dress and your white boots are simply amazing! You know I love the paisley print and the colors really are gorgeous! I just got a pair of tall white boots from a Just Fab boot sale. Now if the weather would cooperate I could style them and take some photos! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
You are wearing them today on the blog aren’t you! They are gorgeous! Thanks love!
That dress looks fabulous on you!
The dress is stunning Nancy! I adore the color and beautiful paisley print. Thanks for the link up!
Thank you very much Kathrine!
This look is fabulous from head to toe! My very favorite part though is those boots…I can see why you love them!
Thanks Debbie! Yes I am very happy with them! have a good weekend!
This is so cute!! I love those boots!!
Thank you very much! I do too!
The white boots really look perfect with the dress! You are right too how a brown or black pair would have been boring with it. I would work but the outfit wouldn’t have that little extra! Lovely dress! Enjoy your weekend: hope you get some sunshine.
Thanks Mireille! On the sunshine part….nope! Haha, yes the sun shines today….on my cleaning the house day!!
I love the dress – you look great Nancy! Actually I love the way you’re doing your eye makeup these days – so pretty. Have a lovely weekend x
Oh thanks Penny! That is so very kind of you! Have a great weekend in my beloved Brighton!
Your dress is gorgeous and I love the paisley print! So pretty contrasted with the white booties! Thank you so much for the feature! Have a great weekend!

What an adorable dress Nancy – you look fab in it, and the boots are yummy – I want them in my life. x Jacqui x
haha, I can understand that! Thanks hon!
Your dress is amazing, Nancy! I love these white boots, they added even more elegance to your look!
I’ve always been a big fan of paisley, so I adore the dress. It looks absolutely gorgeous on you, and the boots are such treat!

Thank you very much Suzy!
Love this easy fitting paisley dress and the colors are great on you! And the tall white boots are a standout! Hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks for sharing.
the Paisley print is a favourite of mine – love the style of this dress too. Styled beautifully with the short leather jacket and cream boots. I’ve been looking in the sales for a black pair in that style – can’t find any to suit. Love these.
Thank you very much Alison!
Beautiful dress, the paisley print is fab! I love those boots – they have a real retro vibe!
Yes they do, that’s why I bought them!
You look fabulous, Nancy! Love the white boots paired with the dress and the jacket tops it off so perfectly!
Thanks for hosting the linkup!
Thank you very much Ellie!
Yes, that dress was absolutely made for you, Nancy! Ever since you two did that paisley post, I’ve been looking for paisley, too! I love the retro feel of that print, and your dress is SOOO cute! Happy Friday,my friend!
Haha, that is great Darlene! I am glad we inspired you!
I love the dress, Nancy, it’s super pretty- you look great. I’m one of those people who absolutely loves paisley!
Do you? I just discovered it really! Well of course I knew it existed, but I never cared that much for it!
I love Paisley, and have lots of it in my wardrobe! And yes, that dress was meant for you, and has persuaded you to wear Paisley! The colours on that dress are gorgeous, too. And although I would probably combine it differently, I agree that the white boots make the dress stand out. Likewise, the leather jacket is giving it a certain edge! Stunning, Nancy! xxx
Thanks Ann! I now appreciate a Paisley print much more, as I can see the beauty of it now!
What a fun dress, Nancy, and isn’t it FAB with the white boots?? I agree, sometimes the “expected” colour is just too boring. Shaking it up is the name of the game!
Thank you so much for the link-up!
Haha, yes , said the shaking up Queen!
I love the paisley-print dress, but more of those fun white boots, please!

I do love the dress, but especially with the boots. I almost think that black boots would make the outfit so dark, and those white ones give it a modern vibe.
Yes I totally agree! I think Brown ones will go perfect too but the white ones are better!
I am loving your white boots with this dress- they add the perfect amount of contrast!
I hope you are having a great week!

Oh I thought that at first too, but you can wear anything with them!
Such a fun dress on you! I like paisley print and it has a retro vibe in those colours – you wear it so well and the white boots are a good touch! 🙂
Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend 🙂 We went to the rainforest again yesterday, the kids had the best time!
Oh I’ll bet your kids liked it! Sounds great!
The paisley dress is so you . I do like your white boots , I am thinking I may need some when our Winter arrives. Many thanks for hosting Nancy.
I am so glad I bought those boots. It’s not my color at all, but they look great under so many looks! Thanks Jill!
I love that dress on you. Those boots are so cute too!
