Bloggers FALL For Plaid

Plaid… it is the epitome of Fall.

It is the perfect staple that everyone should have in their closet! It can be worn so many different ways with so many different styles so there is literally something for everyone!

That is way this perfect basic is the perfect way to start out a weekly fall trend linkup! I am excited to be teaming up with a group of awesome ladies to be sharing some of our favorite fall trends for the next few weeks. Each week has a different theme and we will all style that theme according to our personality. This week the perfect fall plaid is featured and I am loving everyone’s looks!

For my plaid trend, I went with the classic button-up. What is great about a button-up is that they can literally be worn by anyone. With a variety of shapes, style, material, color and patterns, there is literally something for everyone, no matter their body type.

My plaid is super affordable and was purchased from Wal-Mart for less than $13! I love the color palette because the grey is unique and unexpected. I paired my plaid with a pair of destroyed denim from American Eagle to give it an edgy vibe.

Playing on the edgy vibe of my denim, I went with a fun, stud bag and one of my favorite Kendra Scott rings. The Naomi three-finger ring says I mean business with a touch of druzy glam. My watch is Michael Kors and really stands out in this bright, blue color. My booties were purchased from TJ Maxx and I love the mule style. It is a really unexpected shoe style, especially for the fall, so I love the extra detail that it adds to my outfit. They are a beautiful grey suede making them the perfect neutral!

The great thing about all these pieces is that something similar can be found at almost any store. They are all classic pieces with a little character so they will remain in style for years to come! I love the versatility of each piece and how I can easily use them with other outfits in my closet.

A Perfect Plaid Peplum

Thanks to the worlds of Pinterest and Instagram, I have found the most perfect plaid peplum…

This outfit is one of the most fun outfits that I have ever worn. I loved every minute that I was able to wear this beauty and I could not wait to share the pictures with you all!!

Since the top was clearly to short to be a dress, I added some crisp white pants to really set off the rich colors of the peplum. The funny thing is, though, my husband told me when I was getting dressed that my butt was hanging out and I needed to put on pants for church. After a good laugh on my part, I assured him that it was a top and that he had nothing to worry about!! I finished the outfit off with the perfect red flats.

I finished off the look with a whole lot of bling!! Too much bling is never a bad thing!!

I Stole This Shirt From My Husbands Closet

IMG_9141

Why is it that a man’s shirt always fits better than a woman’s shirt?? And I don’t just mean on them. I mean on us as well. I want you to think about one of the sexiest things that a woman can wear. It has got to be, hands down, a man’s shirt and underwear, nothing else. Usually the shirt is simply picked up off the floor and used to cover oneself, but that is a post for another day.

While I technically didn’t steal this shirt from my Husband’s closet, it was purchased from the men’s section of American Eagle. I am tall, for a woman, and I have long arms. I find that a woman’s shirt is usually too short in the sleeves and not long enough to cover my rear end. I love wearing button ups with leggins so rear coverage is a must when purchasing a button up. I started checking the sale section of the men’s department and found that the sleeves are usually long enough and the sale is usually better. This is not just true for American Eagle but almost all clothing stores. Hollister, Abercrombie, Ralph Lauren, even the local Goodwill, the men’s section is one of my favorite places to look next time you head to the store. I promise that you will not be disappointed, and your might even save a few dollars!
