Style File 12.15.11 | Plaid Days


I’ve worn this outfit for the past 2 days. haha. I always seem to do that when I put together an outfit that I really like. It’s one of those outfits that are easy to go about your everyday life in but still feel like you are dressed up a bit. I have developed a slight obsession with buying plaid button ups at triftstores lately. Every time I go, I buy some. They definitely have become a major staple in my closet this winter.


Outfit Details:
Plaid Shirt: Thrifted (similar)
Belt: Thrifted
City Mini Wool Skirt: J.Crew
Olive Tights: c/o Modcloth (perfect shade!- it’s hard to find green tights that don’t make you feel like peter pan)
Boots: c/o Wanted
Franklin Necklace: Jess LC

Outfit pictures seem to be more fun while this little one is running around, squealing in delight as the pictures show up on the back of the camera screen…

  4. I do the very same thing when I find an outfit I like! I recently found a cream and gold lace mini-dress that I’ve been wearing so much that I’m afraid of wearing it out! It’s so perfect.


  5. Seriously, you are so right about the green tights! I love this.

  6. cute!! i do the same thing… rewear outfits that i love! 🙂

  7. Now we know where the smiles come from in your photos! She’s so adorable and looks SO Much like Kev it’s crazy!

  8. I love it when an ensemble comes together so well you can’t help but wear it over and over again. You look adorable!

  9. I rewore something twice over the weekend, glad to know I’m not alone in that! Love your Peter Pan tights and that great plaid shirt!

  10. Another beautiful look on you! Love the combination of plaid with the forest green tights. Perfect for the season.

  12. love this one!! i have a sort-of similar skirt that i very much miss at the moment (i’m 30 weeks pregnant and missing lots of my wardrobe. ha.)

    which reminds me, i’ve been meaning to ask — when you were pregnant with Rowan, did you have any luck finding cute tights? i’m having a hard time finding some stretchy enough to go all the way over the belly (if i push them down, they just roll up like a terrible tights donut. NOT flattering.) any advice is welcome, i miss all my winter skirts and dresses!

  13. I’m also slightly obsessed with plaid shirts lately too … I think I must of brought 3 in recent weeks. I just love their rustic look. And they are super comfty to boot!

  15. Your plaid top is so perfect with that wool skirt! Such a cute picture of Rowan too.
