Mad for Plaid


What do you do when you run to the mall for one thing and end up in Express by accident because a tartan shirt catches your eye?

You buy the beautiful red plaid top........

Then whilst checking out, you spot another outstanding blue plaid blouse that you should probably own too.......

So you add that to the tab.

No self control.

Anyway.

I am sold on this tartan/plaid trend that's happening this fall.  Now if I could find a tartan scarf for winter, I'd be set.

And who ever heard of running into the mall for one thing?

Ridiculous.

  3. That blue top is really cute. Wish I could find some nice button ups, but they are always too tight in the shoulders.

  5. They both will look beautiful on you! I haven't shopped at Express since I quit working, but I really like that blue plaid top... : ) Darn temptation!
    One of the suitcases I was given a few weeks ago still had some clothes in it that I don't think they knew about. I am now the proud owner of a vintage never been worn flannel Levi's shirt! Score one for me! That might be as close as I get to the plaid trend this year.

  9. My gosh, I love plaid. Call me a freaking hipster, I don't even care. I love it. Especially in flannel form--warm, cozy, fallish. Sigh. I too made the mistake of running to the mall for "just one thing" last Friday; I mean, if you legitimately need new jeans and Forever 21 has them in your size for $7.80, why would you go anywhere else? Right? Right. Of course, $80 later I'm walking out of F21 (those are some expensive cheap jeans, apparently) and then I see this awesome Goonies shirt in Old Navy.....and then.......yeah. Zero willpower on this one.

  11. Plaid is one of my absolute FAVORITE prints. It's just extra comfy, if that's possible :)
