A Case of the Spots and Dots

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I am lucky to have a three day weekend and have taken advantage of the long weekend. I am still on my kick to try to see every award nominated movie. I was able to see Zero Dark Thirty and I thought it was another great movie. So, I was able to check that one off my list.  I also have been working on some reorganizing, which I will posting about later. Lastly, I went and saw my mom. She altered a few of my thrift store finds, so this weekend has been very productive and I still have today!
For my post today, this would be the only time when I would recommend to have a case of the spots and the dots. For this, I have combined two prints that I love dearly animal print and polka dot. If you are a little apprehensive of the whole mixing prints trend, an easy way to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe is by using accessories. One of my best and favorite purchases has been this H&M leopard infinity scarf.
