spotted purfection

I am beyond obsessed with all things dotted and have a strong desire to dress as a leopard lady, so it was only a matter of time before these perfect prints got paired.

I first dabbled in pattern mixing when the trend caught my eye a few years ago and I have become a print pairing addict ever since. 
Pattern mixing can be often used to make a bold or even unexpected statement by pairing loud prints. But I took a different approach by pairing timeless patterns with basic silhouettes to give the look classic twist.
 Oh and by the way, did you happen to notice what is happening south of my ankles? I've been twirling through the streets in my brand new Kate Spade Dazzle Shoes. The low block heel makes them super functional and comfortable but the big gold accent adds a touch of whimsy.

  1. I love the new shoes!! They are adorable and look fantastic paired with the leopard and the lovely scout bag! I'm usually not a fan of animal prints, but I think it looks great in your outfit!

  2. Loved your outfit and just loved the shoes. Good job.
