dots and stripes





Sweater : J.Crew Factory
Skirt : Old Navy
Scarf : Boden via a friend (similar)
Boots : Loft
Jacket : Calvin Klein via TJ Maxx

This was one of those outfits that I put together in my head, but I wasn't sure how it would look in real life. Brown + purple + black + grey? When I describe it that way, it sounds like I'm wearing a bruise. 

I happened to wear this to my dentist appointment a few weeks ago--so now it is considered my "lucky outfit". The lucky bruise outfit.

  1. You so pretty :) I know you are wearing boots and tights but something about this just screams, "Don't worry! Spring is on the way!" Love it!

  3. You are so photogenic! And beautiful! Thanks for all the tips! (Now if you could just give me some on "being photogenic"! Is there an art to that?)

    1. Many many many years of practice. MANY MANY photos (like usually 50-75 per shoot). You're likely to come across a decent one. :)

  4. Went shopping at the Loft with my little girl and had picked out a blue horizontal striped cardigan to try on. She (at 3 and a HALF...half important!) grabbed a blue cami with aqua dots and wanted me to wear it with the cardigan. Hmmmm...only because you chose it. SO CUTE! I think I have a fashionista on my hands. :-)

  5. I would never have paired all of this together, but you pull it off so well - as usual! Funny how you and your sister sometimes have uncoordinated similar posts - you were both thinking stripes this morning!

  6. At first glance, I thought the scarf was lavender. I absolutely love the scarf sweater combo.

  8. I am confused by the links. The scarf link goes to a JCrew sweater and the skirt link goes to a previous post. Is that right?

  31. I have been "stalking" your blog for a while now but this is my first time to comment. I forget how important it is to comment on blogs :) Over the last couple of nights I watched several of your hair tutorials and they are great! Thanks for sharing your secrets. I regret not following my dream to go to cosmetology school and choosing the medical field instead. Love the outfit! Your adorable!
