What I'm Wearing: Mixed Signals


Hi all! Sorry I have been sparse these past few weeks, there has been a whole lot going on. Today I officially rejected an offer to stay where I am currently working. I was not pleased with the monetary side of it and I feel like this is my opportunity to change careers and do something different. It's nerve-racking and exciting all at the same time. We will see what comes about from my job hunt, hopefully I will find something sooner than later. 

On to my outfit. I got these amazingly fun tights for a birthday present and immediately wanted to wear them. I knew I wanted to mix the big dot print on the tights with stripes, thus the belt and shoes. Mixing prints is effortless when you keep it in the same color family. Pair it all with a pink skirt and it's a party on our body. Am I right? Of course I am. It was lightly snowing when I took these pictures, just so you know those aren't huge flakes of dandruff.

Cardigan: Clothes Mentor, Bow blouse: H&M, Skirt: Gift (JC Penney), Tights: Gift
Shoes: White House Black Market, Belt: New York and Company

What do you think of this look?

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,

Kassi
