Pretty in Plaid

This week's Friday's fancies theme is Pretty in Plaid. Are you a fan of plaids? There are so many different options when it comes to this classic pattern. Shirts, sweaters, skirts, pants, shoes, bags-- You name it, you can pretty much find it in a plaid of some sort! Lately I have been a fan of the plaid flannel shirt. As the weather dips cooler here in SoCal I tend to gravitate toward cozier clothing....not in the sense of something just having long sleeves but in the sense of the fabric being warmer, softer and more comforting. I will say that the plaid shirt can go wrong pretty quickly so in an effort to look a little less like the days of Kurt Cobain, Daisy Duke or The Beverly Hillbillies, the key is to add a little sparkle in the form of fancier accessories.

Envelope clutches from my shop work well. A schosh over-sized and all accented with a big sparkly vintage brooch, they for sure add a dash of shine to an everyday flannel shirt. I could see either of these outfits paired with dark skinny jeans or leggings. Another option if these are still a dash on the too casual side, add a pointy toe flat instead of the boots. Perfection for the casual, daily routines of the holiday season like running errands, holiday shopping and coffee with friends...oh and don't forget your mama sippy cup! Def buying  these vino2go wine sippy cups for my besties this Christmas.
