Spotted with a chance of shine

Whether you are headed to work, or out for a night on the town, polka dots and pops of color will help get you spotted. But before we get started, lets see what pieces we were working with...
This outfit is a little bit of everything: bright colors, bolt prints, a chic blazer and fun bangles all while playing with proportions! but how do they all work together? let me show you!

This look is kind of fun because with cropped lengths, bright colors and awesome patterns it is a weekend take on a work look.Everyone should own a fun cropped blazer, they work all year around!Just make sure to get one that flatters your body, mine works because the bold shoulders and loose frame  are a nice contrast with a mini skirt that synchs at the smallest point.
If this skirt were a pencil, and my blazer a bit longer, this outfit would work for the office. But since this is a spring weekend look, I piled on the accessories!
Buzzzzz did you notice a stylish little queen bee buzzing about out on my blazer? You too can bling up a black blazer with some fun pins! Buy some at a vintage or thrift store, or even try ebay!
Jacket: Vintage. Tights: Polka Dot. Shirt: Pebble top, Forever 21 (now on sale). Shoes: Vintage (sorry so much vintage in this post, similar). Skirt: Vintage, Donna Karen (similar, uk). Gold Bracelet: Vintage, My moms from the 80's (similar on sale). Glasses: Tom Ford. Lipstick: Dragon Girls, NARS. Earrings: Black Gum Drops, Kate Spade. Broach: Bee Bug Pin, Vintage (similar here or here). Ring: All Wrapped Up Bow Ring, Kate Spade. Bangles: Idiom Bangles, Kate Spade.

 I really like to double or even triple up on the prints, so I paired a polka dot top with dotted shoes before adding spotted tights and a polka bangle.

But what do you think about my polka dot outfit extravaganza? too much or just enough?
