If fall had an official pattern, it would probably be plaid. When I'm putting together my fall wardrobe, a plaid shirt is always one of the first things on my must-have list. I've had the same couple of options on repeat for the last few years, but I stumbled upon this black and white check shirt at Target last weekend and decided it needed to come home with me.
I'm wearing it for two work looks today; one is perfect for the weather now, while it's still warm enough for bare legs, and the second look is better for cooler days of late fall.
While I am looking forward to fall, I want to embrace this bare-legged weather as long as I can. I know that once I pull out the tights it will feel like an eternity before I put them away again. With my favorite turquoise pencil skirt and fuchsia pumps, this black and white plaid shirt walks that summer-to-fall line.

It's inevitable that there will come a day when these white legs will no longer see the light of day, and that's when I'll start pulling out the long pants. Combined with this plaid shirt, flats, and a scarf, my go-to black pair make an easy fall work outfit. Swap them out for jeans and your weekend's all set too.
