Red Plaid


(You can totally adapt this look for colder weather by adding boots and a neutral infinity scarf.)  

I'm on a blazer and red plaid tear!  Naturally they needed to be combined at some point.  The other red plaid top I have is too flimsy to hold its shape well under this blazer, but this thicker flannel one was perfect for it.  Even though I have a handful of other plaid tops, red has trumped them over and over again this season.  And I don't even love red that much.  But I think it's because red plaid is a great contrast to blue jeans and any neutral you want to layer over it, so it really makes an outfit pop!

On another note, the last two pics feature a clutch that my friend designed for her new bag company, Future Glory.  If you know me at all, the bag is wayyyy out of my typical price range, but I've gotta admit that the genuine leather and suede lining feel really, really, REALLY exquisite!  A far cry from Target PU bags.  ;)

BUT, on that note, this Target satchel was sold out online for a bit but is back in stock in cognac now!

  5. I have noticed that you often wear neutral colored shoes with darker outfits. I like the look but would never have thought to choose that light color. Can you please talk a bit about that? Thanks.

  23. I'm not a big fan of plaid, to be honest, but I really like this look. I think it's be cause it doesn't look too lumberjacky :) I also really like how sharp it looks with the blazer and heels!
