The Rejected Cheetah Girl

I would title this The Long Lost Cheetah Girl (Cheetah Sister), but we all know that none of those girls would want me in the group nor would I deserve a spot. I mean, my singing and dancing skills are not on par and I would never slay a terryclotch tracksuit like they would. But consider this my audition and foray into the Disney Channel classic with a killer sequel. I'd be a great person to have on set who would rearrange the craft service table and just all around make everyone uncomfortable with my complete and utter lack of talent.

I'm not going to lie, I lost myself after that Cheetah Girls ramble and now I'm not entirely sure if there was actually a point to this blog post. I have a whole notebook of ideas I want to discuss, but I also need to take a day and just actually think them through so they're more than just a bullet point in journal that vaguely make sense. So, logically instead of trying to write out a post that wasn't well thought out, I'm winging it and making things up as I go. Typical Francesca logic that isn't logical at all.

This outfit, at its bare bones, is not outside of my comfort zone. Layering a dress over a t-shirt isn't groundbreaking styling by any means and it's something I do frequently with other strappy dresses in my wardrobe. However, the print is very unlike me. I bought it on a whim for about ten bucks at the Zara sale because I like to experiment within my wardrobe as much as possible, but it's usually to expensive to take the risk of them not working out. But for ten bucks? Eh, I'll take my chances with it.

This styling is something that Sophie Milner not only would wear, but definitely has worn time and time again and kills every single time. I'm actually insanely stoked to wear this dress during the fall and winter time with a black turtleneck underneath (y'all, do you know HOW MUCH I miss my turtlenecks? My crops are dying, I need them back), but this is for sure how I'm going to be rocking it for the rest of summer and the scorching days of fall. Who knows, maybe I'll get saucy enough and wear it without the tee underneath. The possibilities are endless!

  1. I love the warmth of the print & that bag will always be a fave! xMaya

    1. Hahaha, the bag is definitely my baby so I'm glad you love it too! :)

  2. I love this post! And yes Sophie Milner would 100% approve this outfit. Also thank you for pausing after the Cheetah Girl rant to remind us that that is actually how writing a blog post works and that nothing is perfect haha.

    1. Hahaha, you know me, always rambling and trying to #KeepItReal!

  3. I think this look is so fun! Was never the hugest fan of cheetah prints but this look makes me really want to try something out like this, haha! Throw in a little cheetah print here and there. Small steps, heheh!

    xo, Chloe //

    1. I'm not a huge fan of it either on me but I'm super glad I snagged this from the Zara sale as a last minute decision. :)

  4. Cheetah & Adidas... they kind of rhyme right? haha Seriously loving this outfit. I saw a caption the other day and it said "As for me and my house we serve the Cheetah Girls." TOTALLY vibes with this :)
