Mad Plaid

Mad Plaid

Hello hello, I hope you are all having the perfect Sunday Funday and enjoying the weather, whether it's still sunny and warm or getting chilly and fall like! Today, my boyfriend and I found a cute little town near us and had a big ole breakfast, took our dog Jozie to the park, and got some ingredients to make homemade Turkey Macaroni Chili! 

When we were at our local grocery store today, we were in shock with all the pumpkins that are already out, but you know what that means, PSL's from Starbucks! Although it may still feel as if it is summer time with the weather, that certainly won't stop me from getting mad about plaid! While the weather transitions into breezy days and cooler nights, I will be pulling out all my plaids and fall colors - olive green, maroon, rusty oranges, and creams. 

I absolutely love anything plaid whether its flannels, dresses, pants, and even shoes! Plaid is such a great print to wear as it can go with almost any occasion.. I have recently bought a plethora of new plaid for this season. The dress pictured is currently my fave as it is sleeveless, so I can wear it through the end of summer through to fall with a cardigan, as pictured. 

Now let's talk about flannels.. Flannels have the rep of being super casual or for being "country." Now don't get me wrong, flannels and jean shorts sure is country and I am not saying I don't love it, because I do and 100% take part in the trend, but there are so many other ways to wear flannels other than to a country concert or shopping. My favorite way to wear flannels is with LEATHER! I love doing a french tuck with a flannel into my favorite leather leggings or a full tuck into a leather skirt/shorts. It is such a simple outfit that can be taken from brunch to a night on the town - thow a cute bootie or over the knee boot and call it a day!! 

Lastly... have y'all seen the Jeffrey Campbell plaid booties?! They are the most necessary shoes I have seen in a whiiiiile and I cannot wait until mine come in! Jeffrey Campbell's Siren bootie is a must-have showstopper for this season. This sleek, tapered bootie is sophisticated and perfect for any look. I am planning on wearing these with just about everything - jeans, leather leggings, dresses, rompers, you name it! 

As always, thanks for reading!

Much love, xx
