The Adventure Starts Here: Mad for Plaid

Mad for Plaid

Every Fall, there are certain pieces in my closet that I tend to wear over and over.  I tend to wear a variety of classic and trendy items. So far I've shared my love for the chambray shirt, utility vest, and my favorite Fall shoes. Today, I'm teaming up with some of my favorite blogging friends again to share another one of my most favorite fall classics... plaid! I am a huge fan of plaid button down shirts and can often be found wearing a plaid scarf!  But I'm not the only lover of plaid, Beth at Our Pretty Little Girls, Whitney at Work It Mommy, and Becky at BYBMG are also sharing their favorite ways to wear plaid today! 

I have multiple plaid shirts (and scarves).  But for today's post, I thought it would be fun to style my newest plaid shirt in a variety of ways.  So even if you only own one or two plaid shirts, you can still come up with a variety of outfits for all different occasions!  I'm actually really excited to see what Beth, Whitney, and Becky came up with!

I wore this first outfit to a casual birthday dinner for my mom this weekend.  It was a mild day for mid November, where a coat wasn't necessary, but an extra layer was definitely helpful.  I also liked how the lighter color cardigan added some dimension and made the outfit a little more interesting than the shirt on it's own.

I see myself wearing this next outfit a lot as it gets colder.  I can just picture wearing this vest, hat, and boot combo to go cut down a Christmas tree!

My final outfit is the most casual and it kind of reminds me of the early 90s.  Who doesn't love a simple t-shirt and jeans outfit?  The plaid shirt acts as a cardigan that can easily be taken off and tied around my waist while still adding a pop of color to my outfit.

While I had fun styling this plaid shirt three different ways, I have no plans to stop adding to my collection of plaid shirts.  Here are some past ways I've styled my other plaid shirts.

What's your favorite way to wear plaid?

  1. I love your plaid! I don't have much plaid and need to branch out because I love it on others.

  2. Look at you in the quilted vest and beanie. I think that was my favorite look of all. I am a sucker for the red buffalo plaid.

  3. oooOOo, I love the buffalo plaid paired with the cognac boots! I must do that.

  4. LOL at the plaid over the tshirt reminding you of the 90s! That hat looks so cool with the rest of the outfit, wish I could wear hats!

  5. I love all of these looks! I think the cardigan one is my fave!

  6. I love the plaid with the cardigan! And I'm a huge fan of red!

  7. I love adding girly pieces to plaid to give them a softer look. I love the cardigan paired with the bold color.

  8. I love your plaid pieces!! But that buffalo check is so perfect for this time of year! You HAVE to wear that second outfit to cut down your tree, Im already imagining your lovely photos from that day ;)

  9. Love it all! I have a mad obsession with buffalo check. I can't stop buying all the things. And Target has been putting out tons of it!

  10. Loving the plaid everywhere this year! And it look so so good on you girl!
