Gingham and Stripe Top

J.Crew Gingham and Stripe TopThis J.Crew gingham and stripe top combines two of my favorite prints so the first time I saw it online, I instantly added it to my cart. I can’t wait to wear it with white denim, a floral skirt or jean shorts this summer.

This coat is from Zara from a few years ago. I tend to gravitate towards neutrals so I’ve been slowly but surely trying to add more color to my wardrobe, especially with my outerwear. They have a newer version with fun sleeves, and if you’re looking for another fun color and/or print, I love this new style too.

Things you can’t tell from this photo – I was wearing two different earrings all day. I obviously need to slow down in the morning because in addition to different earrings, I’ve gone to work more than once with something backwards or inside out.

I’m feeling refreshed after a much needed weekend at home without too many plans. I got lunch with one of my best girlfriends, had a big family dinner with both of our families (we ended the night with Codenames – if you’re looking for a new game for game night, we love it!), made it to spin class and ended the weekend with a much needed trip to the spa to use some gift cards from the holidays.

If you love gingham as much as I do, Banana Republic has quite the selection right now, and I’ve included a few more tops and a cute clutch below.

And if you love sales, the LOFT and Old Navy sales were extended through tonight. You can shop my picks here (at the bottom of the post!).

  • This sweet little handprint ornament made me go 😍 every time I passed it on our tree this year. We went to @glazepottery in Thiensville to make it, and I may have already told Bill what I want for Mother’s Day since I definitely teared up when I saw it there (motherhood is emotional haha) - a mug with two handprints with the saying “These hands hold my heart” in the middle. Wink, wink, nod, nod @williamritt just in case you forgot.
  • This video clip from our first dance has been in my Instagram ‘Drafts’ since our anniversary in September (better late than never?). This January marks 10 years together and these last few months have been some of the most incredible yet. Watching you become a dad makes me so grateful that Ainsley and I are both yours ❤️ love you, @williamritt! And we’re forever grateful for @russelled and @kaileydickerson’s incredible surprise.
  • We’re keeping things festive over here for the next week 🎄 This is the tree that my mom would put up in my room as a little girl. It was pretty special to put Ainsley’s first ornaments on it this year.
  • Merry Christmas ❤️ The Ritts
  • I love how you can see the cardinal ornament so well in this photo. A cardinal is one of our signs from our mom (along with Ainsley flicking us off 🖕🏼😂). And little Kevy’s angel ornament is also right at the top. My mom loved ornaments (she got one every time we traveled) and traditional Christmas decorations so this setup along with all of our family photos makes my heart pretty full ❤️
