Plaid with Plaid!

September 25, 2018

It’s all about plaid right now, right? Loud plaid, subtle plaid, gingham, flannel, check, 90’s Clueless plaid … SO MUCH PLAID!

I’ve been looking for just the right versatile subtle plaid blazer and found the perfect one at Soft Surroundings.


I wanted a subtle plaid that I could wear to work and wear for weekends as well.  This black and white check with a bit of a caramel color woven in seemed just right for fall.  Actually the lightweight fabric is actually pretty good for year around here in California.

I couldn’t wait to wear my St. James Plaid Jacket(c/o) so I styled it for a Saturday night out with the hubby.  We went to an art show downtown featuring Shannon’s friend’s amazing work. I went all out with the plaid theme by wearing my plaid booties as well!  I made the look more fun and casual with my Frame Denim jeans (now 60% off!!) and these big 70’s inspired tortoise earrings(c/o). Also I’m loving leather tote bag from Madewell, a recent purchase.  It’s soft leather in a gorgeous shade of cognac brown, just perfect with neutrals or fall tones.  And let’s face it, no matter how many cute little bags I have, my roomy totes get the majority of use because I just love to carry my whole life with me wherever I go. (Who can relate?!)

Do you like the plaids mixed together?  Let me know what you think.

Another must have print for the fall is leopard of course. Check out this fun leopard look.  And ICYMI, the last installment of my NYFW diaries is also up and ready to read!

    I love the plaid on plaid! Go bold, I say! The mixed-plaid trend that I see going on this fall fascinates me and I want to try it out. We’ll see if I can be that bold! Ha!

    That’s a great jacket. And although plaid is so on trend right now – it’ll be a timeless look for many years after – great buy! xx
