Seeing Spots

Two black and white outfit posts in a row-now that’s saying something for a girl who loves color like I do. And contrary to how I thought I might feel, I have found the black and white trend to be quite refreshing this season. So considering this and my penchant for snow leopard prints (which you can read about it here) it’s no surprise that this dress caught my eye on a recent H&M trip. A hybrid of leopard and polka dots all wrapped up in black in white? How could I resist.

As I noted in yesterday’s post, J and I headed on a road trip to Montana this past weekend so J could ride in the annual Rolling Thunder cross race in Missoula.  It is a weekend we look forward to every year, not only because of the terrific event, but because we get to see family and friends while we are there.  And this year, of course, did not disappoint.  J had a podium finish in one of his two races, I snuck in some time with girlfriends (including meeting one’s little boy for the first time!), and most importantly, we were blessed to spend the weekend with J’s dad, and his brother and his wife (who just moved to the neighborhood where these photos were taken!!).  It was a long drive home on Sunday, but the weekend was well worth the trip.

  1. I absolutely love your dress! I always have a hard time finding the perfect leopard print because I feel like a lot of prints are off-color wise or just look cheap. But this dress is the perfect print! I’m thinking a trip for me to H&M is a must!

    Love your blog and I’m your newest follower! 🙂

  2. I absolutely love this dress! The leopard print is stunning and it looks a lot more expensive than H&M! Fingers crossed I can find one somewhere in the depths of that store 🙂
