Spots on Dots

by Jessica Sturdy on December 28, 2012

Bare legs… What are those? It’s been a while. These pictures were taken a few weeks ago on a very unseasonably warm December day in New York.

This is one of those outfits where my male coworkers look at me like I got dressed while blindfolded. My shirt and skirt obviously don’t match… but it just kind of goes, ya know? (Leopard) Spots on (Polka) Dots. Hashtag Man Repelling.

Like my new hairstyle? I call it the “I’m too lazy to curl, blow dry, or flatiron my hair so I just let it air dry.” At least it’s non-damaging??

I tweet about it all the time, but I am seriously a crazy dog lady. Especially when it comes to Frenchies. The Frenchie owners in New York tend to get a bit weirded out when I giddily squeal and runskip over to their pets… Sorry! I promise I’m really not that creepy!

Tracy caught me in action on this particular day when two Frenchies walked over to us during our little photo sesh…

Love this look – and I think the vest really helps pull the two prints together…so cute!

I frickin’ love this look! It takes major guts to mix prints, and you do it like a pro. So kudos!

I love the leopard paired with polka dots. And I wish my hair looked half that good when I don’t do anything to it :)

i love this outfit, but it’s funny how we, women, wear some stuff men just don’t understand. but I figure, as long as we’re confident in what we wear and how we portray ourselves, who cares?!

I know an outfit is good when girls love it and guys hate it! haha! hashtagforeversingle…. 😉

I really like the different patterns together! Obsessed with the fur vest & flats too!

Love this look! I would never be able to pull this off. I act the same around french bulldogs, they are my FAV :)

I like it but think the vest is a little too much. The leopard and polka dots is a very interesting combo though!

Love this look ! I never would have thought leopard and polka dots would go so well together, but you look fabulous!

So cute! I wish my hair looked like that when I didn’t curl or flatiron it. :)


AJ December 28, 2012 at 11:29 pm

LOL, I love that you’re a crazy dog lady…I do the same thing! Cute look!!

Love your skirt! I totally get the squealing at dogs and scaring their owners, fairly confident I did that at least 10 times through Central Park haha!
