Houndstooth-Classic & Timeless

What a weekend!! After three Thanksgiving meals over the last few days, I’m feeling a little stuffed this morning. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving spent with our family.

It’s now time to transition to Christmas so I’ve started decorating. I’m usually finished by now but for some reason, I’m behind this year. Sigh.

It’s no secret, I love classic and timeless pieces, so of course I’m going to add houndstooth to my wardrobe.

I’ve had this scarf for several years and I love wearing it during the fall and winter months.

The weather was a little mild this weekend so I pulled out my open toes booties from Rack Room Shoes.

  1. Me too, Cyndi! Salad week!! Love the outfit. I can never find good stuff at Old Navy here. Love your beauty for the heart. Have a great week.

  2. I just wanted to say thank you for blessing me with all of your wardrobe ideas. I have really fallen into a frumpy lack of style and couldn’t seem to find my way out! Your daily ideas really have given me some very do-able budget friendly ways to add some “umph” to my wardrobe. I can’t wait to see what you post next!

  3. Love your “classic and timeless” houndstooth. Christian Dior made houndstooth his own in 2009. and almost every designer has adopted this beautiful design in some of their clothing… even the beautiful star Jaclyn Smith as in the black skirt I wore Sunday to church is the Houndstooth design. I normally wear this solid black skirt with white blouse and with the B&W scarf… but as I grew more “busty” after each pregnancy,(LOL) I stopped wearing scarfs that often. I might just have to get that scarf back out into circulation, cause I love your look with the tights !!!! 🙂

  4. Love this look!! I bought this same shirt after you had posted it earlier this fall and have gotten many compliments. I’ll have to try houndstooth with it!

  5. I purchased cute houndstooth slimfit pants at Old Navy recently. They fit slim but not too tight. The ankle length worked perfect for me since most pants are too long and too many rolls just aren’t cool. I’m learning.

  6. Love your outfit! I’m a big fan of houndstooth 🙂 You look amazing in everything you wear Cyndi! I look forward to your posts everyday!

  7. I love houndstooth! I decorated my tree this year in red, black and white. In addition to solid colored ornaments, I used black and white houndstooth ribbon and peppermint striped ornaments. I found out after I was all finished that these are the University of Alabama’s colors, and houndstooth is their signature print. ARGGGH. We are Aggies – rivals of Alabama. Oh well. Roll Tide I guess.

    1. I can’t allow houndstooth in our house. We live in the state of Alabama but are dye hard Auburn fans! Here in this state if you wear crimson, houndstooth, drive a red or maroon vehicle, or are missing 2 or more teeth you are an Alabama fan 🙂 lol

  8. I bought those booties, from Rack Room, this afternoon. So cute! I’m wearing them tonight for a ladies Christmas dinner at church. I love them! Thanks, Cyndi for showing us how to dress for less without breaking the bank!

  9. I have a lightweight houndstooth coat that always gets compliments! I tried to get the Target scarf, too, but no luck!

  10. I also love your beauty from the heart! Where is your white undershirt from? Where is your necklace from? Love the entire outfit! Thank you for great inexpensive clothing inspiration!

  11. I love the whole look! Especially the scarf. I would have probably put a black scarf with it ! You are stretching my style comfort zone and I love it:) I can’t get enough of your post! It’s like a gift each day I receive your email! Have a fantastic day!

  12. Can you share how you tied your scarf? I have the same one from Target, and can’t figure out what you’ve done. Thanks in advance!
