Mixing Prints for Thanksgiving

Wearing: Gap sweater dress (on sale!) | Zara blanket scarf (identical version and coveting this) | Boots (simlar here, here, and my dream boots are here
The Zara blanket scarf strikes again! See how I styled it before here. This time I’m back and mixing patterns with this amazing scarf. I’m normally not one to do so, but I think one “safe” combo to try is stripes and plaid. It’s as if the two almost belong together. I’d say this is definitely one of my favorite outfits I’ve featured on A Pop of Pink.

This Gap sweater dress will be the perfect outfit for Thanksgiving. For any holiday, I always like to look nice but also feel comfortable (especially with all that eating), and this dress is perfect for that. If you’re traveling for the holiday, the blanket scarf is great to throw on for added warmth. It can also double as a blanket for napping after dinner. After all, it is a blanket scarf.  

P.S.- Thanks to Corbin and Laura for hosting an awesome Thanksgiving-themed #MMLinkup!
