Plaid Shirt Then and Now

It actually started to feel like fall this weekend, which was nice. It's still pretty warm, but now there's a hint of cool in the air. Oh, and the football. College I'm okay with (go K-State!) but NFL I just can't bring myself to get excited about, much to Aaron's dismay. Anyway, to me, wardrobe-wise, nothing says fall like a plaid shirt. Here's how I wore mine to work last week, and also during chillier weather a couple years ago.

Clearly this plaid shirt and I go way back. I keep an eye out regularly for its replacement (because I know it won't last forever), but so far I haven't found one I like quite as well. While it lasts though, I'll keep on styling it. Last week I dressed it up a little for work and paired it with a striped pencil skirt. I added a belt to break up the patterns, and red flats to add a splash of color.

  1. Plaid is perfect for fall, that is quite true! Finding a replacement for your favorite piece is never easy, so I hope you don't end up needing it anytime soon.

    And the new blog look is gorgeous!

  2. I'm with you - college football is more fun than NFL!

    I love the plaid top! You can never go wrong with with plaid in my book!
