Outfit of the Day: Pattern Mixing, a little Glitter & Announcements!

Hi, everyone! I'm sorry that I haven't written a post in over a week, that's the longest break I've ever taken! I wasn't sure how to come back, though, because I didn't know if I should mention the reason I was gone, or write an entire post about it or say nothing about it here. Because I wouldn't feel right ignoring it, but I don't want to go into an explanation here, I'll just say that if you look at my Instagram or if you already follow me, you'll see a photo I posted on March 12 and that'll explain it enough...

I also wanted to thank all of you so much for following my blog because I reached 505 followers while I've been gone! That's incredibly exciting to me and I'm so grateful for all of you :)

Onto today's outfit post: 

This was my outfit Sunday before last. The weather was so nice; it was sunny and fairly warm with only a slight chill in the air. I've been wearing the animal print scarf (is it cheetah or leopard? I can never tell the difference!) with everything, literally. I suppose because it's technically a neutral with the colors it goes with a lot. I tucked a navy polka dot button down into my usual black skinny pants and belted it with this sparkly glitter belt I got from Loft for under $6! I just loved the polka dots, glitter and animal print together. Sometimes pattern mixing is so fun!

Scarf: Gift
Polka dot button down: Loft
Black pants: Lovefire brand from Belk
Shoes: Rack Room Shoes last year- super inexpensive!
Bag: Michael Kors
Bracelet: Mine! 

I'll do a separate post soon, but I've posted a couple of photos on Instagram of a couple of the pieces of jewelry that I've made so far but this is the first time you would have seen this bracelet- it's simple, easy to stack and looks glitzy because of the lovely texture. I love creating things and this has been so much fun for me so far to make them and wear my own creations :)

I hope you've all been well!

  1. Gorgeous pictures! I strongly feel like leopard goes with basically anything! I especially love it with the tiny polka dots!

    1. Hahaha, I'd have to agree with as much as I've worn it!

  2. Welcome back! Isn't it so nice to be able to get outside to take pictures!? Loving your look.

    1. Thanks so much! Yes! I had no desire to take any kind of outfit pictures in the winter!

  3. I love your outfit! It looks smart and sophisticated but casual enough for a day out (if that makes sense!).


    1. Thank you! It definitely does, that's why I love it too :)

  4. Welcome back! I'm so happy you're back, but I totally understand why you didn't blog for a week. I love this outfit! The pattern mixing is fab!
