Outfit Post: Perfectly Plaid

November 07, 2012

 Wearing:
Top: Target (love this one or this one)
Skirt: Gap (love this one!)
Heels: Tahari via Macy's
Bag: Vintage Station Coach
Watch: Michael Kors
Bracelet: Macy's
Faux Pearls: Forever 21

I'm still waiting for it to cool off around here, but I must admit I am super thankful to live in a place where natural disaster is at a minimum. My thoughts are definitely with all of my East Coast friends and bloggers who are suffering the repercussions of Hurricane Sandy. If you follow me on other social networking sites you know that we had a mini 'natural disaster' of our own this past weekend. Anyway, things are slowly going to get back to normal.

This outfit was a no brainer- I love when that happens! The subtle print mixing and difference in texture  (the shirt is flannel, and skirt is cotton) made this ensemble super comfortable and as close to a 90 degree fall outfit as you can get. I've had this shirt for a year now… I wasn't sure how to top the first way I styled it… see those photos below. Granted, I lived in a completely different climate this time, last year, I will always love this outfit- (click here to see full outfit post featuring these photos below!)

Thanks for reading!

  2. You look so pretty, Elle! I like both outfits. I think you did a fantastic job styling both! And it is pretty warm here in California...although it's starting to get chilly now in the Bay Area.

  56. No-brainer outfits that turn into gosh-that-is-so-cute looks are favorites of mine. Unfortunately, I don't get them that often. The mixed prints you did here work so well together that this could be my peg for reworking outfits. :) Thanks!
