I am definitely not one of those people that has seasonal clothes I bring out or put away depending on the season. In Wisconsin, you can have all four seasons in one day! I would be pretty darn uncomfortable if I stuck to seasonal clothing. Even this week it's predicted to be in the 70s today and then high 40s later on. Yikes! Hopefully our temps even out and I can ditch the tights soon! For days like this, layers are my go-to solution. Neutrals and small pattern mixing make it work no matter the temperature or the season! These are all older items, but they are classics. I've found similar ones and linked to them and added more options in the widget below.

In a completely unrelated topic, if you weren't aware, it is National Infertility Awareness Week. I'm taking a deep breath and putting my husband's and my story out there. The first part is here about my first pregnancy and the second part on our attempt for a diagnosis will be up tomorrow with the remainder later this week and into next (it's a long story). I hope you take time to read because it's taken a long time to write and a lot of courage to share.

  2. I love the print mixing with the scarf! I don't have nearly enough striped dresses, they are definitely on my wishlist for when my shopping challenge is over!

    I did read your infertility post, it's great you are sharing it to raise awareness but it sucks you have to go through it.

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you are having a great start to the week :)

  11. It's the hardest thing to see these other bloggers in sandals & such, when we are supposed to get snow on Saturday!! Ack!!
    That's probably why I don't change closets---I need everything all the time too!

  17. I had to laugh when you said you get all 4 seasons in one day in Wisconsin. This is so true for STL, too! I love this b/w striped dress! I have several b/w patterned, striped, etc. dresses and I bet I could style them all with this card + cardi look and they'd all be different looks! Gorg!!

  18. You're so right about Wisconsin. I'm from Cleveland, Ohio originally and you can never put away your winter clothes!

    I'll be back tomorrow to read about your infertility story. I am so sorry to hear that you are struggling, but I'm here for support, or to at least hear your journey.

  19. Hi Laura! I know what you mean about not having a seasonal wardrobe. My clothes are not much different in winter or spring. I usually wear the same with a lighter jacket or less layers :)

  21. I love this stripe dress, and how you layered it! It's hard to have a seasonal wardrobe here in Boston too. The other day is was in the 70s, and today is barely 50! I'll be checking out your post tomorrow. I went through infertility myself, so I know how difficult and emotional it can be, and I'm glad you're bringing awareness to it!

  22. I hear ya! I used to live in Wisconsin (through four winters), so I get it. And this winter and spring up here in the PNW has been a particularly dreary, rainy one. Tights and boots still a must-have most days!

  23. Beautiful bag and scarf! I have a similar hat, but I usually wear it with a floral dress or any other maxi dress. I should definitely try styling it with some stripes :) I really like your look

  24. Love the way you put your classic pieces to work and how you've outsmarted the fickle weather with your layers!
