spotted leopard

Skirt-Bettie Page; Blouse & Ring- Thrifted; Orange Top & Necklace- Smart Set; Bracelet- Le Chateau; Shoes- Charlotte Russe; Nail Polish- Today was a Fairytale by Deborah Lippmann

Leopard print and polka dots (or in this case polka squares) how I love you and your pattern mixing finesse! Once again I wore my favourite Bettie Page leopard print skirt and paired it with an Ann Taylor tie blouse that I thrifted for only $3.99! I have to admit that I almost didn't post pictures of this outfit-not because I didn't like the ensemble (in fact I'm quite partial to it), but instead the photo quality is atrocious (especially with my apparent lack of hair styling & wonky looking eyes!) Ah well not to despair as my new Canon Rebel T2i is on its way, a late Christmas gift from my man (this year we waited until Boxing Day sales to buy each other presents -more bang for our bucks!)


I'm linking up to Inspiration Monday with a (very loose) interpretation of Emily Blunt's casual shopping attire.  Besides sharing the same first name, we also share a love of black and white patterned tops and John Krasinki (sorry to break the news to you Nora but I'm also seeing him on the side!)

  1. I really do like this outfit! Mixing prints can be super fun and the dots and leopard prints blend perfectly. And I love the pop of color that the shirt you layered underneath offers. Very pretty! Hope you have a wonderful week!
