Plaid Scarf and a Striped Tee

I don’t know about you but I’m sick of tights. I wear them about once a week with a little black dress and heels or an A-line skirt and booties, but that’s about all I can handle. I’ve been trying to wear more skirts and boots and over-the-knee boots paired with a cozy sweater so that I’m warm enough and comfortable throughout the day.

When it comes to pattern mixing, plaid and stripes are one of my favorite combinations. I have a few (read: too many) plaid scarves, but I promise they’re all different, just like my stripe tees. What can I say? We live in Wisconsin, and it’s cold for half the year. Plus, I tend to wear scarves to work as opposed to a statement necklace because usually the necklaces give me headaches (call me crazy, but they do). Plaid scarves are an easy way to add some more color to any look while also keeping you warm in those freezing cold work conference rooms.

I would dress this up a bit more for work by wearing a sweater or a button down. This top would be just as cute and a bit more work appropriate.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! xo

  • Thank you all so much for the love this weekend. We are definitely still navigating life at home with a newborn but our hearts couldn’t be more full. And watching Bill as a Dad has me like 😍 all day long. We’re so grateful for our guardian angels watching over us as we start this new chapter. Right after the delivery, there was a knock at the door, and while I couldn’t see who was dropping something off, I heard the nurses say “Thank you, Rosie”. How’s that for a sign that my mom was with us the whole time?
  • Ainsley Rose surprised us with an early arrival last night, and we couldn’t be more in love 💗
  • Celebrating three years of marriage today (just short of 10 years together) and under a month until we’re a family a three. I’m having a moment over here ❤️ grateful for you every day, @williamritt. 📷 by @juneandjae
  • While I may have strained my back moving things around the nursery this week, this corner still makes my heart happy. My mom found the dressers we’re using on Craigslist when I was in college, and we gave them a quick facelift with some new paint and knobs. I remember telling her how great they’d look in a nursery one day. And because she and her friends had quite the inside joke about penguins, naturally I needed these adorable prints that we’ll get around to hanging one day (thanks, Auntie Al @allisonhaslee).
  • Going to bed feeling extra grateful after today’s baby shower for our sweet girl. We have the most incredible family and friends who have been more supportive than we ever could have imagined these last few months. Can’t believe we get to meet her in under two months 💗 http://liketk.it/2wWi5 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #tuckernucking #32weeks #ltkbump
