Stripes & Plaid

Happy Tuesday! I’m finally back in North Carolina after a long, stressful traveling day. Yesterday morning we woke up to a ton of emails about canceled flights, delayed flights & rescheduled flights….not exactly what you want to wake up to on the day of your flight!! We headed to the Philly airport not quite sure what to expect. Luckily we were able to get on a flight with a layover in Detriot and eventually made it home….what a day!
Anyways, this is a look I wore a few weeks back for brunch downtown! It’s hard to believe that just a few weeks ago it was still warm enough to wear short sleeves. It’s definitely not warm enough for that today, it’s a high of 34! I am wearing a ton of layers in order to stay warm.
I have been loving these coated denim skinnies lately. I love that they dress up an outfit a little more than a regular pair of jeans would. The fact that they’re under $40 makes them even better! when I say I’ve been wearing them non-stop, I’m not kidding!! I’ve also been pattern mixing (especially when it comes to scarves and tops) a lot. I’ve gotten so much more wear from the items in my closet by doing so.

  13. Ugh, I'm so sorry about your flight girl. That's just the most stressful thing – I remember getting stuck in Paris one Christmas (NOT as glamorous as it sounds) and after that I vowed to never travel so close to the holidays again. Of course I'm sort of breaking that rule this year but never mind! : )

    Love that scarf by the way – so long and perfect for layering!
