Well, fall is coming to a close. The cold air that I was met with this morning only confirmed this fact. Thanksgiving has come and gone, and almost everyone on my street has all of their Christmas lights up. Winter is coming.
One of my favorite patterns to wear during the fall is plaid. It’s such a classic print and it has a scholastic feel to it. This year, however, I found that I hadn’t worn a lot of plaid. I wanted to make sure some of my fall apparel didn’t go unworn, so I took it upon myself to work some plaid into my ensembles before November is out.
Below are three plaid looks that I’ve worn in the past few days.
I worked all of Thanksgiving weekend. To say I was tired by Sunday night would be an understatement. This picture was taken on Sunday before I went in to work. I based my outfit around my red plaid vest, and went on from there. Considering part of my uniform is to wear red, this choice was perfect. It was a bit chilly, so I paired my top with a gray sweater. The sweater really brought out the accents in my vest. To round out the look I opted for classic blue jeans and black leather booties. I was happy with the look, although I wish I had worn different shoes. My feet were killing me after my shift!
On Monday, I settled for a hint of plaid . The weather was supposed to be north of 60 degrees, so I dressed accordingly. I wore my red tee with denim skinny jeans and my Sperrys. To add some flare to my outfit I put on my plaid scarf. It complimented the red very nicely and had some gold highlights that went with my shoes. The Monday after a break is never easy, but I was happy the sun was shining, even though the air wasn’t quite warm enough to my liking.
Today was freezing, so I brought out the turtleneck and the layers. My mom gave me this turtleneck tunic/dress last year and it has become a cold weather staple for me. However, the dress is short sleeved, so I had to put on my flannel. The flannel kept me warmer and added some much needed color to the outfit. I finished the outfit with some black leggings and camel-colored boots. At school during the cold months, I often cover up my outfit with a coat because even in the building I feel a chill. Today was no exception. Luckily for me, my coat actually complemented the rest of my outfit. Plaid is a fun print to work with, so it was cool experimenting with it for the last couple of days.
Although this fall has been crazy and stressful at points, it has also been fun and full of achievement. I’m not ready for the long winter ahead, but I’m ready for Christmas, so that is something to look forward to. It’s so fun to dress for the holidays, look at all of the lights, and spend time with family, so I’m very excited.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and is making it through this week unscathed!
