Tartan & Stripes

Dress: c/o Joe Fresh, Trench and Scarf: Zara, Boots: Michael Kors, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff c/o Eluxe, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets: Stella & Dot and c/o Banana Republic, Sunglasses: c/o Sosie

I mentioned in my plaid inspiration post yesterday that I recently bought a huge tartan scarf from Zara! I'm not sure if you can tell from the pictures just how giant it is, but I can seriously wrap it around myself like a blanket and it hangs to my knees. It is so, so warm - almost too warm for October temps - but I know I will be wearing it constantly come winter. I could not resist the gorgeous red tartan, and loved that it was double sided with a black & white plaid, making it oh so versatile.

I decided to keep it cozy & classic the whole way through with stripes, a trench and riding boots (still my most favorite pair, a gift from the fella last Christmas) for a comfy day at the office

Happy Thursday! Weekend,you're almost here!

  13. I spotted this scarf at Zara too and fell in love, just like you. The only one they had left was ripped though, and they weren't going to restock. I envy you a little now that you have it, and I don't haha. Have so much fun styling it this winter! It's a great piece to have I think! :-) xo

  20. I LOVE how these pictures turned out! The stripes & tartan combo is amazing. And I already said this to you in person, but I love how the Rebecca Minkoff MAC and the trench sort of blend together in a neutral way. Gorgeous as always Kate!

    I love this outfit. It's exactly my style so I might have to steal everything in it. I love stripes and plaid and black boots and trench coats... I just want it all.
