Plaid-A fall favorite!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by my blog 😊

Who doesn't love a good plaid for fall?
It's the quintessential seasonal pattern!

This week I've chosen two plaid pieces from my closet to style 
The first outfit is fairly classic and a bit preppy,  
since this is a look that is trending this fall 

I'm wearing a royal blue, black and white plaid blazer
layered over a white scoop neck ribbed top 
Paired with high waisted, straight leg denim jeans in a medium blue wash
It's such an all American look!

This light grey metallic satchel bag has been a long time favorite of mine
I wish I could snap my fingers and reproduce it in a rainbow of colors 

 I chose silver tone jewelry to match the bag's hardware
A grey leather and curved metal bar bracelet, dome stud earrings
and for a bit of fun, a whimsical necklace with an old fashioned camera charm

Snake print block heel mules to finish the look-
(I guess these skew a little off preppy)
White trainers 👟 maybe, if I wanted to be really authentic 

I am feeling very nostalgic this week
I think the seasonal change does this to me every year! 

 I don't think I will ever wear these pieces mixed together this way again-  
It comes across as kind of a 90's look, now that I see the photo
Isn't it funny how quickly checking your outfit in the mirror 
is not the same as looking at a photo of yourself on the computer screen?

Wearing a camel tan bracelet sleeve blazer over an ivory V-neck bow blouse,
worn with a bold multi-colored plaid and pleated midi skirt  

I guess maybe it's the proportions that give this outfit such a retro feel- 
1990's was not really my intention

Mixing my decades all over the place with a 1950's red vintage bag 

Gold tone oval chain link bracelet
and link drop chain earrings

Tan criss-cross ankle strap block heels to finish the look

A plaid from the past- November 2018
Well before the Covid disaster struck-
I wish I didn't know know now what I didn't know then

Fall porch decor-
getting into the spirit of the season

Hope everyone has a good week!

I like the retro vibe of the second outfit! The first one is my favourite though, I really like a blazer and jeans combo and I need to wear it more often myself. I always enjoy wearing it when I do!

Hope you had a good weekend :) We made the most of the nice sunny days after a rainy week, with a local market event and a morning at the park.

Such pretty looks!
I have wanted to comment for awhile, but when I put your blog address in my browser, it doesn't accept it with the www.
Love your blazer, I never tire of plaid, it is just Fall personified.
The 2nd outfit is so lovely and I love the mix of tans with red.
have a great week!

Love both these plaid pieces! The blazer and the jean outfit is brilliant!

I don't think we've seen you in jeans very often - they look great, you have a model's proportions! The plaid jacket looks great, a smart but still casual outfit. Nice retro vibes with the 2nd outfit. Thanks for linking

The blue plaid is my fave and I love the snakeskin booties with it. Your front porch fall decor is so cute, esp the owl!
