Happy Wednesday you guys! I have to say, this is one of my favorite looks over the last few weeks. Its so festive and cute but also SUPER comfy and versatile! This could be worn almost any day for any activity! Plus, I LOVE pattern mixing. Stripes and plaid is a pretty safe “go-to” this season, I’m sure you’ve seen a TON of it lately! I mean, how could you not – its so pretty! This scarf feels like the perfect christmas scarf and the stripes of this sweater do NOT overwhelm with the plaid! TIP: Don’t wear black with white stripes to mix with plaid. THAT IS overwhelming. But white with black stripes.. totally works! Right?! And this one from J. Crew is PERFECT for the look I was going for! Any who, we’re almost done Christmas shopping finally! It feels SO good! Usually at this time I’m just barely getting started lol. PHEW, its WAY better and less stressful this way!
With the holidays coming up Matts been working long hours lately, I’m so proud of him! I do miss him but we have a very set goal in mind and we’re making it happen! As Tony Robbins would say “we’ve burned the boats!”. If you haven’t heard that expression it comes from a story of pirates (I think?) arriving on an island and committing to take over the island and conquer.. “win the war” per say. And to ENSURE they’re committed, they set their boats on fire! Theres no going back now because.. “they burned the boats” LOL, isn’t that a great story/metaphor? We love it.
Anyways, thank you for reading my “holiday pattern mixing: stripes and plaid” along with my little story lol, I hope you have an amazing day! PS. Totally try the stripes and plaid, I felt adorable!
