Holy smokes is it getting cold outside! The rapidly-approaching Chicago weather has got me scrambling for more and more layers every day. I’m always a sucker for the preppy button-up + sweater combo. To keep things interesting, I always try to play with different patterns & textures. I love the interesting twist of the striped/checkered combo here, especially with the pop of dark red lipstick. No winter blues here, Chicago!
