Cozy in Stripes

pink + navy

I hope everyone in the Southeast is home safe and staying cozy warm! We had fewer than two inches of snow - which befuddled my pup and was really fun for a while - but it got kind of crazy as temps dropped, roads slicked up, and everyone pretty much tried to get home all at the same time.

Problem when you live in a city where it snows like once every three years? We've got minimal ability to clear the streets of the slush and I pretty much do not trust a single person out there in a motor vehicle, they don't know what they're doing. (Though I bet they're thinking the same thing of me, haha). But honestly I am hoping everyone's well and warm, I've never seen a traffic snarl like this before!

I'm going to be in Uggs and a hoodie all day (working from home, thankfully we don't do that whole "videoconference" thing - egads), so I leave you with a cozy outfit I wore recently one weekend.

  2. Super cute outfit! Even in snow-prone areas, the first snow tends to throw everyone in chaos! Stay safe and warm!

  3. I love the mix of stripes and gingham! I saw some photos of the South with the snow/ice yesterday and I couldn't believe the traffic jams!

    1. Well, we don't do anything half-assed. If we're going to make a mess, we're going to make a big one, hehe.

  5. I love the gingham and stripes together. Very polished casual look going on here!

    Stay warm today. We've had snow almost since Christmas with frigid temps and more snow on the way. I'm ready for it to go away now! My Aunt lives in GA and it took her over 4 hours to go 16 miles last night...4 hours! I think she was in rush hour or the mass traffic you were talking about! Wow...stay safe!

  6. Oh, Lisa! All the individual pieces are rendered so cohesively - it's visual perfection. That statement necklace is the icing on the cake. Lurve.

  9. What a fabulous casual outfit.

    Now you have a taste of our awful weather. Misery loves company you know : )

    You have the right idea. Stay home and stay warm. By the time this winter is over I will have gained 20 lbs and an undercoat of fur.

    1. I think I got home before the worst of it, but I didn't have to traverse the interstates either. I couldn't believe the folks who still weren't about to get home even by the next morning, that's crazy!

  14. Those jeans look great on you. I would not have guessed they are Old Navy! Might have to give them a try. Love the color of your sweater, too. It looks so good with the gingham!

    1. I've found a few pairs of jeans recently at ON that fit pretty well. Plus they're cheap!

  15. I like that necklace and the earrings. Great outfit.

    I totally understand why places that don't get a lot of snow shut down when it does. I grew up in Calgary (snowy, long winters) then moved to Vancouver for university. Lots of Vancouverites have no idea how to drive in snow, there are lots of hills and there seems to be a ton of rear wheel drive vehicles there. Not a good combination.

  22. I really love this outfit--definitely one of my favorite color combinations!
    We had quite a time of it today and yesterday with the two inches of snow...I ranted a bit about it my most recent post. Suffice it to say that I am back at home with my pups (oh, and my husband too).

  24. Love the stripes/gingham combo! Old Navy jeans have come a long way in terms of fit and fabric quality for price. Hope you are staying warm! I finally bought my first pair of Uggs this winter and love them on chilly days... wish I had bought a pair long ago, but better to jump on the train late than never at all, right?!? ;) Have a great day!

  27. Gingham and stripes is always a winning combo!

  28. We're doing our absolute best to stay warm too! Here in Indiana they're not super prepared either. Not like Michigan and New England, so we get trapped in our house from time to time by the snow.

  32. They don't always manage to stay on top of things even when you do live somewhere that snow is regular and expected! Glad you get to stay safe inside and work from home.

    Love the stripes and gingham together, such a cute mix!
