stripe in the name of love

Nothing worse than coming to a fashion blog to read about fashion & finding weather talk... so let me tell you about the weather in Denver right now.

Last night it snowed 3 inches, tomorrow it is supposed to be 70... "unpredictable" is an understatement. Gone are the days when I can make assumptions about the daily temps/precipitation before the morning of - part of my daily routine is checking the weather & updating the outfit I picked out the night before accordingly. As a teacher that leaves my house at sunrise & often returns after the sun has set, I need my clothes to keep me warm in the morning, keep me cool in my sweltering classroom (it is 2017 & apparently every public school in Denver is controlled by a central system... how is that even possible!?!?), allow me to be comfortable if I have recess duty, and everything in between.

So yes, the solution to this is layers! I always prefer to keep my core warm and my legs cool, so vests and scarves it is! I previously wore this striped dress with a silk scarf and ballet flats (outfit post here), but also like the doubled up stripes from this combo. Which one is your favorite?

{Shop these exact pieces}

dress: J.Crew Factory striped dress (also available in blue stripe)

vest: old from BB Dakota - found similar styles here & here

scarf: J.Crew striped scarf - sold out in stripes, but still available in polka dots (update the look with this silk scarf for Spring)

shoes: Sole Society booties (also love this peep-toe style for Spring)
