I don’t need to say much here, the skirt speaks volumes on its own. Plaid plays a part in every fashion era, it just shows up in different forms. We are amidst plaid shirt domination for women and men, which I don’t hate, but what I love more is a full flirty plaid skirt flowing around my legs. If someone could hand me my Burberry trench and point me in the direction of Harrod’s that would be cheeky.
Now that we have established it’s fall with pumpkin spice flavored everything, I’m feeling stoked over soft textiles and soothing colors. It has been hot waaay too long over on the West side of the USA, and I will jump at any opportunity to wear one more layer than my birthday suit without melting. Seriously though, here’s a few of my picks for the fall; ones that you will wear over and over, ones that give the “I’m stylish and don’t try” look.

I’m about to get settled to read my current issue of Vogue and feel super poised to do so.

Upon receipt I cut the white lining out, and wore a nude slip underneath to make it a bit more sexy and less church wear.
I bought this gray plaid button down on nordstrom.com and it has not disappointed.

I found it to be very true to size and liked that it wasn’t too baggy or too tight, which is difficult to find with button downs.
