dots and leopard

 Sweater: Loft (old) (similar here, here, here, here)

Skirt: J.Crew (sale-no longer available online) (available here-not on sale) (other option)

Tights: Old (similar)

Shoes: SoleSociety – Margie 

Belt: Gap (old)

Bag: Target 

Necklace: BaubleBar

Bracelets: J.Crew (stretch bracelet no longer available online)

When I put this outfit together and looked in the mirror – I liked it! So I  wore it. But after I saw the pictures…for some reason I no longer liked it that much. Bottom line – the mirror lied to me. How dare she?! 

Even though this look is a couple of weeks old by now, I decided to share. Mainly because I sort of started liking it.

 Does this happen to anyone else?

    You know this saying 'if God allowed you to have a dream it is because you can make that dream come true' (or something like this? Well, I guess that it can apply to ideas for outfits: 'If God allowed you to have the idea for an outfit, it's because you can pull it off'. I think it looks good on you! But I could never pull this off! 🙂 Thanks for sharing! 🙂 xoxo

    I love it and I think it looks great on you. It's a fun combo. But I think I would do a solid black leg instead of dots? (Easy for me to say as I sit here in my Gap cords…lol!)~ Megin of VMG206

    This happens to me all the time. I like it. I love mixing of patterns. Sometimes a look can grown on you and I hate mirrors sometimes, especially in stores. They always make you look good and then you come and look at yourself and think what is wrong with my mirror??Agi:)

    I can't decide how I feel about this outfit. I adore that skirt with the tights, but I'm not sure I love the sweater with the whole look. But you look fabulous in everything, so thin and fit!!

    This exact thing happens to me from time to time – looks fine in the mirror but totally different in the pictures. And yes after a bit of time to get used to the idea, generally the pictures don't seem so bad after all 🙂
