I guess Little Miss isn’t the only one excited about how her new room is coming together! I loved your comments on her updates yesterday…and such a small world that some of you even have the same art. It’s so gorgeous and majestic…even if she tires of it in a few years, I’ll gladly hang it elsewhere in the house! #ulteriormotive
Today I’m taking on the plaid shirt…and styling it for both work and weekend.
Most of you know by now that my clothes are required to play double, triple, and even centuple duty (I had to look that one up!). I don’t like to divide my wardrobe into defined, exclusive categories, but rather, try to make most of it work for all kinds of occasions and situations…be it work, weekends, or date night. (See my blog sidebar for style inspiration in each category.)
That said, plaid shirts…the darling of Fall clothes…tend to have a casual vibe that lean towards laid-back weekends. But with the right pattern and pairing, you can wear your favorite Fall weekend top right into the work week.
The fitted pencil skirt and fun pearl cluster necklace not only dress up the shirt, but give the outfit a feminine flair. Adding the leopard bag (my new laptop case!) is a fun pattern mix with the plaid.
Remember the Rule of Three? The necklace and bag are the added pieces that make this outfit so chic. And you lucky ducks are in for a treat, because I have codes for both! SUGARPLUM10 gets you 10% off the bag, and SUGARFREESHIP is guess what? Yep, free shipping on the necklace (and everything else in their shop!)!
Now moving to the weekend, a plaid shirt is equally cute with jeans and boots. Add a vest, necklace, and bag for extra layers of style!
The accessories are definitely what make this outfit shine….and yes ma’am, SUGARFREESHIP gives you free shipping on both the tassel necklace and hoop earrings (you may remember the earrings from my last Look for Less post). Still aren’t convinced of the necklace’s power? Check out how it transformed this basic outfit.
When choosing plaid shirts, I look for color combinations that mix well with my wardrobe, along with a feminine pattern and fit. We’re going for Fall-chic, not Lumber-sexual. 😉 (Apparently that’s a real thing now.)
Do you divide your wardrobe into categories, or mix and match it all?
