There’s something about this cool weather that makes me crave all things Fall. Pumpkin Spice lattes, Pumpkin beer, soup, ohhhhhh & some Fall fashion. It doesn’t help that Zac Brown Band was playing the same night just two doors down from my apartment; kick starting my Fall obsession. Now, although I had to go to work and couldn’t enjoy some “chicken fried”, I decided to fantasize & challenge myself: how can I take a plaid flannel (that everyone & their mother will be wearing) and spice it up a bit? Lets take a look:
So I am obsessed with how this plaid dress/shirt has a pleated circle hemline that makes it flirty & fun. Sometimes, plaid shirts can be more on the boyish size (which a lot of them are actually uni-sex) so I loved how this one had a feminine flare but with bold colors! The tie is the perfect touch to complete the look with an accentuated waist!
Why I love this top so much: It isn’t your typical plaid flannel that near to everyone was going to be wearing at the concert! (oh an by the way-I didn’t get to go–but I got to listen from a block away–that counts….right?) Finished the look off with my new skinnies, some sunnies, & a bright red lip!
With a little imagination, a good eye, & a love for thrifty finds, you can turn a typical look into something flirty and different. (Just wait ’till you scroll below & learn how LITTLE this outfit cost.)
