It’s a post on plaid. And I’m scared.
Why you ask?
It’s a valid question.
Well, let me tell you a little story.
I did my first Mad for Plaid post last December.
I basically showed you the one plaid shirt I owned at the time, and I shared many pictures of me in the shirt. I thought it was simple and a completely “safe” as a post.
I received a blog comment.
From a man.
Are you scared yet? Because you should be.
He wrote to me bout how he loved plaid.
Like really loved plaid.
And he really loved me in plaid.
He said he hoped he wasn’t “creeping me out”, um TOO LATE dude….
but he wanted to know how many other plaid pieces I owned.
And here’s where it gets REALLY weird.
He then asked very politely (such nice manners! ha!) if I would take a picture of myself wearing all of the plaid pieces I had in my closet.
AT THE SAME TIME.
Like he wanted me to have on plaid socks, plaid pajama pants, a couple of plaid shirts, a plaid jacket, etc…you get the idea.
This guy truly was MAD FOR PLAID.
And today isn’t just about plaid. It’s about plaid WITH LEOPARD.
And I fear that if he finds this post, the addition of leopard might make him LOSE HIS MIND.
So, let’s all cross our fingers that the plaid loving gentleman doesn’t find this post today.
HERE WE GO!
BLUE PLAID AND LEOPARD OUTFIT #1
(If you are thinking you are having deja vu, you did already see this outfit a couple of weeks ago!)
I first did blue plaid and leopard (click HERE for the entire post) with my Old Navy blue plaid shirt, my black skinny ankle jeans, and my leopard flats.
*(These were the black jeans I found on my black jean hunt, and I love them!
I know it’s hard to tell in these pictures, but trust me, these jeans are a great fit.
For size reference, I’m wearing a 27.)
(If you are loving the leopard combo…you might want to click HERE to see where I wore leopard with navy stripes and green!)
And I should probably mention that Old Navy (where the blue plaid shirt is from) is having a SERIOUS sale. Stuff is already marked down like crazy, and thru the end of today you can get an additional 20% OFF and you don’t even need a code!
Click HERE to shop around!
The blue plaid shirt has been stocked again (and is currently available in all sizes!), so don’t miss it
nthis time around for $20!
BLUE PLAID AND LEOPARD OUTFIT #2
My new Florentine Leather Tote c/o Barrington Gifts HERE.
This bag is gorgeous. And I’m not sure if a bag should make you happy when you look at it, but this bag totally makes me happy. Even when I’m not carrying it and I just see it on the stairs, or on the kitchen island, it’s just sooo pretty and such an amazing color.
If you want the bag, make sure you use the following code:

I got 2 e-mails this weekend that I thought I should highlight when talking about these jeans
One was from a reader asking specifically about grey jeans, and she said this:
And then one was a new reader who just found my blog that said this:
I just realized that Nordstrom has free shipping and returns! This is awesome! I love so many of the items you wear and recommend from Nordstrom, but I just assumed that since there wasn’t a Nordstrom in my area (I live in Birmingham, AL) it wasn’t meant to be since I would have to pay so much in shipping. This fact is life changing! I can’t wait to order more items from Nordstrom.
Angela, I’ve got you covered with the jeans. 🙂
Danielle, thanks for the reminder! I just assume that everybody knows that Nordstrom has FREE SHIPPING and FREE RETURNS and THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE IN THE WORLD…but if you’ve never shopped there, you might not know!
So, for those of you not familiar with Nordstrom…GET FAMILIAR WITH THEM.
You won’t regret it!
Angela. Get these jeans.
them with flats and booties too.
tartan plaid shirt HERE (only in petite)*
*I am OBSESSED with the tartan plaid shirt on the very right. It only comes in petites, but OH MY at the cuteness! How cute would it be paired with a leopard belt or leopard flats!
Just stick with me for a second.
So, have you always been mad for plaid?
Do you steer away from plaid?
Are you going to be adding some plaid to your closet today?
Sound off in the comments!
I announced this on facebook last night, but LOFT started a FLASH SALE for 60% OFF selected fall merchandise! It’s only until 10:00 EST, so don’t delay!
When they do these 60% OFF sales, the popular sizes sell out quickly.
vine blouse HERE / beautiful tee HERE / waterfall cardigan HERE (my favorite!)
colorblock sweater HERE / ribbed open cardigan
If you follow me on facebook (follow HERE) or instagram (follow HERE), then you got the sneak peak this weekend….
I found some $8 earrings that are VERY similar to the $38 Kate Spade studs that we all love!
Click HERE for the $8 version.
If you are familiar with the Kate Spade studs, these are almost the exact same size…but maybe a teensy bit bigger. They sold out over the weekend, but now one of the colors is back in stock (on backorder, but only until next week).
Stock up for Christmas presents ladies! These would make awesome stocking stuffers!
The color listed is “turquoise”, but I feel like they are more of a “minty green”.
I put this photo on instagram on Friday night.
My little fella finally fell prey to the siren song of the blardigan.
He kept on saying “It’s just soooo cozy.”
I know Carter, I know.
If you already have a blardigan (regular version HERE, plus size version HERE), I want you to instagram a picture of yourself in the blardigan with the hashtag #blardiganlove
I’m not going to announce the details of the contest yet (yep, it’s a contest!), but in several weeks I will be choosing a winner from the #blardiganlove entries.
I think this next picture has to be one of my favorite #blardiganlove entries so far.
How PRECIOUS is Sherri!
(I don’t know Sherri, but I feel like we should maybe be best friends.
Sherri. You and your belly are absolutely DARLING! Let’s be besties.)
I just got an e-mail from Piperlime (it’s Monday at 12:15!)!
If you spend $200 and use the code WINWIN25, you get 25% OFF your entire purchase!
There are lots of things over at PIPERLIME right now (including some of the plaid tops above), but what has my attention the most is the Hunter Boots!

Sizes are going fast!
All right…see you girls back here on Wednesday!
