I love stripes. And I love plaid. And I reallllllllllllllllllly love them together. I’m also a big fan of a great scarf. And I’m telling you, today you’re going to be seeing a GREAT scarf. I’m working with Nordstrom on this post to show y’all two simple outfits with 1 great scarf: one outfit with stripes, and one with a plain solid tee. Nothing groundbreaking here. Just two really cute and easy outfits. And I’m all about cute and easy.
If you follow me on social media, then you saw this teaser shot last night of me planning to pattern mix LIKE A BOSS. (Click HERE to follow me on facebook and click HERE to follow me on instagram.) I mean, how cute is this outfit? And, yes….I know some of you had a hard time accepting the off set stripes on the sweater, but that is one of the things I liked most about it! Don’t worry, I won’t come to your house and make you wear it! Ha! 😉
Anyway, I couldn’t wait to pair it with this bright and cheery scarf. (Click HERE if you want to see the post from a couple of weeks ago where I styled this same sweater 4 different ways.) Anyway, today you are getting a 5th look with the same sweater. BOOM. 😉

If you saw my post a couple of weeks ago, you know I love this sweater for many reasons…but mainly, because it’s soooooooo soft! I also love how it’s cut (with the v-neck and the rounded bottom hem), and the off set stripes make it interesting! I have a small in the sweater, so I think it’s true to size. If you aren’t a fan of the stripes, but still like the idea of the sweater, it comes in some solid colors as well! You can see me in the plain grey sweater (comes in plus size too) with camo pants on the post HERE. The plain grey sweater would also be super cute with today’s scarf!
So I threw on this striped sweater with my favorite jeans EVER (I paid a fortune for them, but I think they are basically paying me to wear them at this point) and what is shaping up to be my favorite scarf. It’s just so happy and fun! And then I kicked up the pattern mixing even more with my bag. I think it’s such a fun look!

If you aren’t quite “adventurous” enough to mix the plaid with the stripes…never fear….the scarf looks darling with a plain tee as well. Every single thing about the outfit is the same, I just switched out the striped sweater for this black tee! I sized up and am wearing a medium. And pay no attention to how low cut the tee looks on the model. You might not even have to wear a cami with yours, so I don’t know why it looks so low on the models! It’s a great tee. I have it in 3 colors and reach for it a lot. It drapes just right and is very flattering. Click HERE and scroll to the middle of the post to see me in the light grey tee.

Here’s a close up of the booties again if you missed it last week. They are true to size and also come in black and taupe. They are very high, so they are not an all day shoe for most people, but they are actually quite comfy (because they are a wedge and not a heel). Also, I know a lot of you aren’t fans of not wearing socks with booties, but you CAN wear socks with these! They come up high enough on the ankle that a regular ol’ ankle sock works. Click HERE for the wedge booties. They were true to size for me.
So, seeing the outfits side by side…which one is your favorite? I’m a sucker for pattern mixing, so my favorite is the striped sweater combo!
Thank you Nordstrom for sponsoring this post! See y’all back here on Friday for Friday Favorites….including a recap of my Round Top trip! Oh, before you go, here are some shoes on sale I put on social media yesterday…
lace up flats / UGG boots / frye boots / dolce vita booties / lucky perforated boots
A good shoe sale is hard to beat.

You nailed it!! The scarf, the stripes, your hair-all perfection! I’m a big fan of this look!
Hi Sheaffer! Love this outfit and you’ve convinced me that I need that scarf! That black tee looks amazing on you girl! I need that too!! What size do you have? Thanks!
Hi, Diana! Sorry I forgot to include that! I sized up and am wearing a medium! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂

Oh my gosh! Stripes and plaid are my JAM! I love, love, love everything about all of this!
Cute, cute!!! I love it all! Looking precious!
My favorite scarf! So happy one of your posts convinced me to buy it!

I love the black tee, but avoid dry dlean items. Did you dry clean or hand wash? Some items that say dry clean I either hand wash or put in delicate cycle and dry flat.
Hi, Alison! I accidentally washed my grey one, and it came out great! I didn’t dry it all the way. xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂

I love mixing plaid with stripes! Your outfit is perfection!
I love it!! I bought the scarf and the striped shirt a few weeks ago after you posted it! Oh…and the gray Wit and Wisdom jeans….GIRRRRRRLLLLLL… fabulous!!! If I remember correctly, you did one about black jeans, I need to find the post! Love all your posts!!
I love, love the scarf. But, I have boobs and every time I wear one I feel like I have more boobs. That is not a good thing. I know it is a mental issue especially with the infinity scarf. Anyway you can show me other ways to wear a scarf?
Hi, Ann! Not really any other way to wear an infinity scarf that I can think of, but for a regular scarf there is an AMAZING you tube video. Google “Wendy’s Lookbook scarf tutorial” and just be in awe!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Can you review how to style the Lucky perforated booties that so many of us bought at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? I keep looking at mine in the closet and passing on them because I’m not sure how to wear them.
Hi, Pam! I’ve showed them on the blog many times, and each time I’ve had to either wear cuffed jeans (that are cuffed a couple of times) on jeans that are more boyfriend type jeans…or I wear them with skinny jeans and either just turn up the tiny hem once, or do one big fat cuff on the skinny jeans. I also wear them with dresses! If you aren’t generally a booties person, just wear them once, and then you will get used to them! Hope this helps!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
That’s exactly what I needed- a confidence booster and brief overview.
Thanks so much!

I wasn’t a fan of the sweater when you showed us before. But now, WOW! It’s gorgeous with the scarf & handbag. Again, you’ve proven that we should listen to you! You look amazing! Love it!
