red plaid love

This look is a mix of SO many things I like.  First of all, this took me back to the whole 90's "grunge" thing. Not the entire look, but my top. I remember when I was in 5th grade, my mom got me an awesome red plaid top exactly like this one. Probably to match something my older sister had.  I may or may not have completed the look with Doc Martens...


Anyway, when I put this on, it immediately took me back.

It also reminded me a bit of a lumberjack or the Brawny guy, as red plaid always does.

But most of all, the top was super soft and comfy (and affordable which is extra awesome).  Which brings me to my last favorite about this look... It's kind of an extreme mix of high and low. Which is what I love.


So I paired the more relaxed top with some "fancier" accessories... bag, shoes, and some chunky gold details.



Chanel ankle boots (similar option)
Louis Vuitton Lumineuse PM (similar option)
J. Crew cuff (similar option)




I hope you all stay warm today! We're actually getting quite a bit of snow in our neck of the woods today!!

  1. I love the plaid look on others but I just can't seem to pull it off. Not the red plaid at least. It looks great on you however though.
