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

  • Have wagon will travel ❤️ Ainsley has been loving every minute of our trip to visit her cousins.
  • So incredibly excited to share Ainsley’s nursery on @theeverymom today with a fun Q&A! I share more about my career journey, some of my mom hacks and my favorite pieces in her room. It means so much to be featured on one of my favorite sites. I included the link in my bio. 📷 by @quyenhom
  • I think I took 100 pictures and gave her 100 kisses tonight. I was sad I wasn’t the first one to give her a top knot so I made up for it by documenting it at every angle.
  • I got to daycare pickup today and they had given Ainsley her first top knot 😭 We got home, found her favorite animals and I swapped my heels for some sneakers because we needed to take a lap in the wagon before family night. And yes, this is the Target dress from the day I got trapped in the store because of a torrential downpour outside. I was wearing a white linen top and desperately needed something to cover up my now see-through shirt and was already running late for a meeting. I also had to purchase an umbrella and rain boots. I wore this dress over my jeans and top and am now challenging myself to see how many ways I can style it. Next up? Layering it with a turtleneck. http://liketk.it/2FCSq #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKbaby #LTKfamily #LTKworkwear #itsbanana
  • Spending my mom’s birthday at one of our favorite places. Her friend owns the farm, and it’s always been special for our family to come here. This was after Ainsley would only nap in my arms this morning (which never happens) so I like to think it was my mom’s way of sending the sweetest hug today.
