WIW 9/11 & 19 Okala x2 (incl pink/leopard Shannon copy)

Wore the Okala pony print pumps twice in the last two weeks. They are attention-getters for sure...always lots of comments and compliments on them. I'm finding them a bit hard to style though...I think it's because my outfits are already so pattern-filled and ALGO. Not sure if they were the best choice for these two outfits--what do you think? Do you prefer the Okala or non-Okala version?
1-2. Banana Republic ribbon wrap dress--in #2 I like how the chain necklace and the ribbon strap on the brown Clark pumps echo the pattern on the dress. The Okala is a good color match for the dress, but the pattern isn't as good of a match.
3-4. Waving to Shannon, who wore hot pink and leopard. I had to join in on the Pink Ladies fun! It was triple animal print with the leopard skirt and pendant and pony print Okalas. But is that too much going on? Should I have stuck with plain black flats instead (4)?
5. I liked the Okalas with this urban cowgirl outfit much better, because it fit the theme and matched the pony print shirt. But I can't expect to only wear the shoes when it fits the theme!

    Your Okalas are PERFECT with #5, but I also think they look great with #1. I'm less sure of #2 because I'm reluctant to mix several animal prints together. Color wise it is great. You look amazing, Natalie! I don't understand how it's possible when working and having three small children. I hope you are getting more sleep now!

    I think they look good with the chain dress and of course your western theme.

    I like the outfits both ways but prefer them with the Okalas.
    I wonder how your Chanel handbag would go with the hot pink + leopard?

    Those look so pretty on your dainty foot, Natalie! 

    I like the last outfit with them the very best.

    I prefer the pumps with the last two outfits better than with the first.  Which isn't to say you don't look great in all of these.

    YAY for pink and animal print!!! Great combination Natalie and I actually like the Okalas with it. No worries about too much animal IMHO.

    You have a wonderful shoe wardrobe, Natalie, so the original photos are already filled with pretty footwear.  I think the Okalas look terrific with each look, too, and I find the extra pattern energizing, not OTT.  I think I would wear the Okalas a lot, at least in warmer weather.
