Pinspired: plaid + stripes

Was it just me, or was the return from winter break in grade school the time you got to see what everyone got for Christmas? My mom bought me this scarf the day after Christmas, and it's been in heavy rotation since. I know it looks like it's taking over me, but it's so soft, and so wonderful. When I saw this pin, I knew I would recreate it. I still don't really get mixing prints, but this works... right? [Linking up with Bri and Heather.]

  3. That scarf does indeed look cozy and warm! My parents brought me back a plaid scarf from Scotland last year, and it is definitely my favorite accessory for super chilly days like we've been having. I might have to try mixing with stripes next time like you did here!

  4. Oh man, when I got back to work a week or so after Christmas, everyone was sporting their new clothes! We definitely started "oohing and ahhing" and admiring what we got and acting like we were 12 even though we are all adults. It's funny that we still do that!

    I really like this mix of prints - the plaid and stripes really compliment each other!

  5. I love your scarf! and your outfit! But I'm not really sure that it goes too well together. I like the original pin, but I can't really place my finger on why yours is a little bit off. Maybe because your outfit is dark and the scarf is light colored with nothing else light colored in the outfit to tie it together? I think it would have worked better with a shirt with a white base and thinner stripes like in the pin, because the bold black and white stripes are competing with the plaid. I dunno, I'm no expert, this is all just personal opinion. You look great regardless :)

  6. Ah! I was just hanging out with my BFF last night and she was wearing this scarf! IT IS SO SOFT. I love it! I really like that sweater as well. I totally used to rock men's sweaters - they're just so cozy and they are the perfect amount of baggy :)

  7. Great print mixing! this outfit turned out great and I love that scarf. Print mixing sometimes confuses me still, you totally pulled this off!

  8. A Wonderful Outfit which I saved. I need a Military Vest first. That Men's Sweater is awesome, too. =)

  9. Yes, this absolutely works. And now I want that scarf. I literally just added a "scarf with blues" to my shopping wishlist!
