If curling up by a crackling fire at a cabin in the woods, with a cup of hot cocoa in your hand and a fur blanket across your lap, while listening to your favorite Christmas Pandora station was a print, it’d be buffalo check. And who doesn’t want to be doing that right now?! It’s been freezing – literally it snowed! – here in Dallas this past week and while I’ve found myself complaining and bickering with Dave over the thermostat temperature, I’d give anything to retreat away to that cabin and sit by blazing fire. 30-degree weather doesn’t feel right in Texas, but in the Appalachian (and Rocky) Mountains it’s expected. I’m excited that we’ll be there in less than a week and you better believe we’re bring our buffalo check!
Buffalo check (and really plaid, in general) is one of my favorite prints for the fall and winter months, so I knew I wanted to get Beckett some of her own. I would love to see her in this Duchess & Lion dress, but it’s a little outside my budget. And I am so sad I didn’t grab one of these ruffle tops from Joe Fresh (who ships to the US now, by the way) before it sold out. But, I found this top at Target (sold out online) and I knew it could work. The bold red and black checks can be a little masculine, so I decided to lighten it up a bit with some white and stripes – white denim for me and a white and blue striped tee (with a precious floral pocket) for Beckett. And adding the light grey wrap was the perfect way to reinforce the cozy factor. This might be exactly what we’re going to wear for Thanksgiving next week. And we will, without a doubt, be sitting by the fireplace!
