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

    You always, always rock different patterns together and I am SO jealous of that! Your mirror definitely didn't lie to you, it's adorable!

    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 🙂

    It's an unexpected combo I think that's why you were hesitant at first but we can assure you that it looks great, love the skirt and handbag, the belt pulls it all together.

    The tights you have in the picture look a lot like the pin dot tights you can get from White House Black Market
