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

  • 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 ❤️
