Red Coat Dreams

If any of you are fans of Saturday Night Live, you'll excuse any major typos you may find in today's article. I'm watching SNL's 40th Anniversary as I write this, and all my motor skills are employed in the sole act of uncontrollably laughing, per usual! #morecowbell Ohh, Good ol' SNL! I hope you all had a good weekend and fellow east coasters amongst you spent not too long shoveling and snow blowing.. I'm honestly considering prepping for floods soon because the melting of these ginormous snowbanks (assuming that day will come!) is going to create a lot of water. Consider it a miracle then, that we found a decently bare spot to shoot these photos in today's post, in which I'm sharing one of my favorite ways to wear a staple in every girl's closet- the striped tee. 

Stripes have been deemed a wardrobe staple for good reason- they're fun, versatile, and appropriate across all seasons. My styling motto for basic stripes is to add a single color, such as my red coat, and a single print, such as the classic leopard print, into the outfit. It's a simple and fail-safe recipe to building a chic look around a basic striped piece. This striped tee from Style Says Shop is the perfect casual tee.. it's sooo soft and has the most flattering fit. I can't wait to play more with it once the weather warms up!

Stay warm, everyone, until I see you later this week at this little corner again!

Thank you for reading, and have a great week!
