Tonight, we are meeting for our team holiday dinner, and I’m wearing this classic plaid shirt. I love how pretty and cozy it feels. Here are three other versions, if you’d like to see: ruffle, puff sleeve, and splurge.

Did you hear how 30 people recently got stranded at a Danish Ikea during a snowstorm? Apparently, the night was super fun — they ate cinnamon buns, played cards, watched TV and then slept in the showroom beds. One of the managers walked around singing lullabies. Kind of amazing, right?
