And I’m not just MAD FOR PLAID…
I’m also kind of panicking that I don’t have a puffer vest.
You’ll see why in a minute.
But first, my instagram pic from yesterday had a lot of you ladies asking about sources for some of the things I’m wearing. Well, in the coming days I have BIG NEWS about my instagram account, but until then, here is my outfit and the links.
MUST HAVE leggings HERE
Hunter boots HERE
The DARLING shirt is from my friend’s boutique from last year. Sorry it’s not longer available. 🙁
The hooded cardigan is AWESOME and you can find it HERE.
It is soooo warm and cozy and is PERFECT for layering with leggings.
It TOTALLY covers your tushy (I have no idea how I should spell tushy).
Get it for yourself or Get it as a gift.
But you should know that if you get it as a gift, chances are good you are going to keep it for yourself.
Okay, so let’s talk about my obsession with plaid.
I was scrolling through my phone pictures last week, and I noticed a trend.
(BY THE WAY, if anybody ever picked up my phone and scrolled through the pictures, they would worry about my sanity. THOUSANDS of selfies people. Thousands.
I’m sure they would think that this couldn’t possibly be healthy.)
I noticed that I am apparently MAD FOR PLAID!
And since I seem to be MAD FOR PLAID, I’m thinking I need to buy another plaid shirt.
Somebody that is MAD FOR PLAID needs to have more than 2 plaid shirts in her closet.
Because the exact same shirt keeps on popping up again and again…….and again….and again.
I copied a Pinterest look awhile back with a plaid shirt and cardigan that apparently never made it to the blog until now.
I bought the above plaid shirt a couple of years ago at GAP, and I had NO IDEA how much I would wear it. It’s one of my go to items when I just need to throw something on and not think about, but it’s all super cute when styled up!
Here it is styled up a bit.
with wedge boots, distressed skinny jeans, some big earrings, a
statement ring, a big crystal bracelet, my Stella and Dot renegade
bracelet, and a military jacket
And here is one of those “I just need to throw something on my body.” situations.
distressed jeans, distressed hat, casual black riding boots, different military jacket
After seeing those last 2 pictures, are you thinking you need a military jacket?
Well, if that’s what you’re thinking…YOU’RE TOTALLY RIGHT.
And if you still don’t have one after the thousands (okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration) posts I’ve done telling you over and over that you need one, maybe now is the time?
Click HERE for a good round up of military jackets.
This one was from last year sometime.
I threw it on with grey cords, a fancy statement necklace, and some black boots.
(I now know that I should have thrown on brown boots for more contrast!)
Pinterest told me to, and I didn’t listen.
Shame on me.
I wore it shopping one day, and thought it looked so cute with this long and cozy cardigan.
(The cardigan is no longer available, but in case you have something similar in your closet, I thought you still might want to see this combination!)
Here are some great plaid shirt options for you:
green western HERE
(near perfect reviews and 5 other color combos available. and only $38!)
Sandra Ingrish blue plaid HERE
(also comes in a red color combo)
And now I bring you plaid shirts with rain boots.
This first one is on a day where I hadn’t washed my hair in a couple of days.
I know, it looks awesome.
And here is my 2nd plaid shirt. I got it from J Crew Factory last year, and I love it too (just not as much as the first one).
I talked about Hunter rain boots earlier this week (and I’m about to get a 2nd pair)…but if you want another option.
Check out the Sperry rain boots HERE. There is even a plaid version!
And you know what else would look good with your plaid shirt and your rain boots?
Pinterest will tell you…
a puffer vest!!!!!!!
|HERE, not found, HERE, and HERE|
The above collage I put together is what is making me panic.
SERIOUSLY. WHY DO I NOT HAVE A PUFFER VEST?
WHO DO I THINK I AM?
I HAVE A CLOTHING AND STYLE BLOG FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.
I hope some of you join me in my panic.
It’s true what they say.
Misery loves company.
Please, join me in my puffer vest panic, will you?
I look at the above images and my heart rate increases due to the fact that I don’t own one.
What is wrong with me?
Well, I’m ordering one today.
I mean, I have to.
It’s a health issue, right?
So, here are some ideas for puffers in hopes that we can all find one that will
cure us of our PUFFER PANIC.
