Well of course we are! The plaid shirt or vest is essential this winter. Absolutely. I still remember seeing it appear online and in shows and thinking I’m not so sure about this. It reminds me of grunge nineties hair {not a good thing} and boys who smell like sweat and cigarettes {sort of a good thing} but mostly it reminds me of the time when I used to throw a shirt over my swimmers and just hang around home as a kid. Ahhh plaid, you delicious sensory thing you.

I’m pro-plaid. In case you didn’t guess.

By a happy accident this outfit came together out of the need to start sharing hangers in my wardrobe. Seriously, it’s pretty much time for a clean out again already. I was throwing jackets and vests over the top of dresses to double up. This vest with that Harlow dress? What a win. I added the knot at the waist later to make some shape and because it was too hot for a denim jacket. I would expect to see it with the jacket in a few months if I were you. Try not to be surprised.

  • Miss Busy

    This outfit makes me want to tease my hair and have a heavy hand with the eyeliner…and I LOVE it!

    • YES! All of that. And it makes me wish I had anything resembling skill with an eyeliner pencil or brush {or whatever it is the cool kids are using}.

  • I wish I had snapped up this dress when I saw it for $50 on sale!!!
