Every time I leave the house here this past week I've been sporting this striped sweater dress, jeans, and boots. You may recall my mention of said boots, in this post. They have been really doing the work here during this past snow storm, and they pair perfectly with my go-to jeans. Wearing this striped dress as a tunic has proven to be quite a versatile! From running errands, to going to dinner, to visiting friends, it's more put together then jeans and a sweat shirt, just as comfortable, and the front pockets are great for carrying around bobby pins, pacifiers, and chap stick--all "Mommy On The Go" essentials. The checkered scarf adds another pattern to the look, which I've been doing a lot of, as seen here, here, and here. Speaking of print-mixing, I think it's almost a necessity when wearing a neutral palette of black n' white, black n' grey, and/or navy n' white. It really helps make a basic color combo more dynamic. So, when it doubt, print mix!
