I love prints. I love mixing a print or 3. I love the surprise of a plaid cuff of a button up shirt and a polka dot sweater. I love a leopard print with a camo (I love a leopard print or a camo with ANYTHING truth be told). There is something about looking down and seeing a polka dot tight and a striped sweater that brings a bit of jolly to my otherwise dead of winter, can’t feel my toes, why didn’t I stay at home in yoga pants and Husbands KU sweatshirt day. And let’s be honest. It’s the little things in life.

plaids and polka dots

This plaid shirt has become my go to this winter. Every summer my brain and my body reset and I forget just how chilly it can get here in KC. The flannel came out in October worn with its sleeves rolled and has slowly morphed into the most fashionable undershirt I own. Sure, layered under an oversized cream cable knit its great. The picture of ski lodge perfection. But layered under this black and white playful sweater it is just (so not) plain fun and maybe a little dizzying. I paired it with Jeggings which I was totally against until I put them on realized that we were infact meant for each other. They are so comfy and they actually tuck nicely into boots. And when you have calves like mine, you need all the help you getting into boots that you can get.

This outfit is made for casual Mondays. Is that a thing yet? Mr. and Mrs. Corporate American-if you are out there-please let casual Monday become a thing. It would be magical. We could all mix prints and be warm and cozy and happy and wear jeggings together. Please.

What prints are your favorite to mix?

Have a Happy Weekend!
