Fall Trends: Plaid


Back when I was a student in Catholic school, wearing my plaid skirts and green cardigans every.single.day, I'm pretty sure I swore I'd never wear plaid again.  

This fall, plaid is a popular trend, and I've had to change my mind, because it's so much fun to wear.  My shirt is a perfect transition piece - it combines plaid with a lightweight rayon fabric that's cool and comfy.

I paired it with this bracelet from House of Harlow.  Ever since I lost my watch, I've been wearing more bracelets.  I like this one because it fits tight on my wrist.



If you're not sure about the trend, or want to avoid looking like a lumberjack, try a plaid accessory.  I think I need these Tom's for my collection.



This scarf from Old Navy would be a pretty addition to any outfit.



Give plaid a chance this fall.  I promise you won't look like a Catholic school girl - or a lumberjack!

If you have the time, come check out my new Instagram page.  I'm on day four of 100 Days of Happy, which I'm pairing with my gratitude journal.  96 days to go!

    1. Thanks Suzanne. I'm trying to get a little more use out of my white jeans before I put them away until the spring!

  2. I love the look of this outfit, Lana! The red purse adds a lot of pop - and the cut, as well as the plaid of the shirt is really fun!
    I had a little trouble for a second, focusing on your outfit though - because I am having bookcase envy! Your bookcases are gorgeous.
    Have a wonderful day!

  5. As far as I'm concerned, plaid should always be a trend! Sometimes I'm still stuck in the 90's.
    You look great. Totally fashionable and not grungy AT ALL.

  7. Between bloggers saying they avoid navy because of a uniform experience and plaid for the same reason, I'm awfully glad I went to public school! I love plaid in the fall!

  10. I like your idea of a plaid accessory - those shoes are super cute! Maybe I'll like this trend after all...my son goes to Catholic school now, but luckily the boys are told to wear khaki pants with shirts and ties - no plaid for them.:)
