I had no idea when I picked up this scarf over the summer that it would be so versatile. I've worn it for every American-pride day that has passed: Labor Day, Veteran's Day (the day I wore this), Election Day, probably going to wear it for Pearl Harbor Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, D-Day, the Air Force's founding date (September 18th - so proud, Dad??), y'know, any and every day I can get away with wearing an American flag-inspired scarf. 

I paired it with a striped tee for some print mixing, added the red cardigan and white down vest for warmth, but also so I'd be wearing red, white and blue for Veteran's Day :)

shirt: Old Navy
sweater: from a friend (Banana Republic)
vest: thrifted (Aéropostale)

30 for 30: day 27 & day 28

day 27


Just your typical “skinnies and a sweater” look. Throw on python print flats to make you look tough (since you're wearing a marshmallow-y cream cable-knit sweater) and then realize that this outfit is really similar to what you wore two days before…whoops?

day 28

Oh, ya know, a navy blue floral scarf over a navy blue sweater. Nothing terribly exciting, but it still turned out well. I’m finding that the best outfits don’t have to be complicated, or over the top, or incorporate at least 7 trends – sometimes they’re really easy, and comfortable, too.

Since it's Veteran's Day today, make sure to hug your favorite vet :)
Mine happen to be my Mom & Dad - thank you for serving, Colonels!

30 for 30: Day 7

Day 7 - one week down. I typically have a hard time putting black and brown together, but I guess this worked for me because it's more cream/tan with black :)

With these booties, I can't decide if I should tuck my pants INTO them, or show a wee bit of ankle skin OR show off some of my fancy socks...any bootie experts out there?

I completely forget to mention this in my blog post on Monday, but happy (belated) Veteran's Day! I've got several veterans in my family, and am thankful for each and every one's service & sacrifice for our great nation. My two favorite vets are my Mom & Dad - thanks for everything, you two are the best. Love ya.
