I love plaid, this is no secret. When I think of plaid I think of the 90’s. More specifically, the mid to late 90’s, when I had major alternative rock tones trending in my outfits. No shame here, I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat.
I love plaid but I can’t say I’m in love with the way plaid is often styled. Mainly, I’m against the puff vest trend. You won’t find me wearing one of those puffed vest things. I can’t do it. I feel ridiculous. You will spot me wearing plaid tucked, unbuttoned, with skirts, and with jeans. I also love to layer plaid under sweaters when the weather is cold.
For this look, I channeled my inner love of the 90’s and opted for a polished yet edgy vibe. I paired this soft button front flannel (similar) with a pair of jeans you’ve seen me in a few times (when you find a great pair of jeans, wear those jeans out). I added my latest favorite pair of booties.
Often, when I’m styling my outfits I find I don’t want to be weighed down with accessories such as a bag. I chose to have no accessories with this look because I wanted my hands free. I want to simply tuck my keys and phone into my back pockets and get on with the day. Hey, when I started this blog I had one main goal – keep it honest and real.
