Stripes and Plaids

Before we get to the outfit part of this post, let me introduce you to our new baby fish! We recently acquired some fish from one of Ben's friends and one had a baby last night! Does this make me a grandmother?

Isn't it cute?

This weeks theme seems to have been stripes and plaids. I started the week out in this striped shirt and navy pants and my plaid shoes. I figured I could pattern mix since they were pretty far apart.
Striped Shirt: J Crew clearance
Navy Pants: JC Penney Clearance
Plaid Shoes: Payless
Thursday was St Patrick's Day, so, of course, I had to wear green. But I paired the green shirt with a blue striped cardi.

Striped cardi: Target
Green Tee: Target
Green jewelry: Kohls
Sunglasses: Michael Kors

And on Friday, I continued the theme of the week, with a silk blue striped scarf that I thrifted for $4! And I wore my plaid shoes again.

Blue striped scarf: PS Too
Coral shirt: Target
Denim skirt: Kohls
Plaid shoes: Payless
Blue also seemed to be the theme of the week! Friday and Saturday were beautiful here! The weather was perfect! I sat in the sun and read and got a little color. But apparently the super moon scared Spring away! Today it's just in the 50's and overcast. I need it to be hot and sunny!!!

Have a good week, Everyone!


  1. How cute...a proud grandma!! I really love your plaid shoes..they are so cute! Payless is doing a great job lately of putting very creative options on the shelf! I am getting more comfortable with horitzontal stripes as I lose look great in all of yours!

  2. I love the green and blue together and I LOVE the plaid shoes! I'm going to have to find me some!

  3. I want the coral and green shirts and the striped sweaters. And You are too young to be a grandmother. You'll have to be an aunt.

  4. I am loving your stripes especially that cardigan :)

  5. I'm loving all the blue. I knew your inner "UK FAN" would surface eventually ;) Question about the plaid Payless they rub weird on your last two toes? I have a brown pair & it drives me insane.

  6. Missy, they do a little bit. I can't wear them to walk around in for a long time.

    And I may never wear blue again after that comment!!!

  7. Those plaid shoes look really comfy! What's in the make baby fish?

  8. So agreeing on that bad super moon
