Spots on Dots

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…

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