outfit of the day: plaid and stripes

I’m mixing it up a little today – well, mixing up prints at least!

Shirt, blouse, shoes and necklace, J. Crew Outlet
Pants, J. Crew
Bracelts, J. Crew and Tiffanys
Earrings, Kate Spade

I love the look of disbelief on people’s faces when I tell them there’s a sock in my (hair) bun. It’s true – sock buns rock, at least when I can get them to work for me. Which is rare.

Did you know you can connect with me on Facebook? I try to answer any and every question, both there, here and on Twitter. Plus I like it when people like me my blog page.  (Yes, I am pathetically soliciting for Facebook likes. They make me happy.)

My newest Marie Claire column on matchy-matchy outfits was posted yesterday – do you like matchy-matchy looks? (And do I say matchy-matchy too much in the post?)

Thanks to Brittany of brittkreigh.com for taking today’s photos!

Linking up at Rolled Up Pretty today! I also linked at The Pleated Poppy earlier in the week.

  12. How the heck can you manage a sock bun on your own?! I’ve tried multiple times and I feel like I need at least two other hands to get it done! I love the mix of plaid a stripes and how you managed to sneak in two different pops of color to this look (loved the green earrings and pink flats!)
