Plaid, Please

I saw this tartan shirtdress (that’s under $100) on Mary a few weeks ago and knew I had to have it, too! (Have you heard the term “single white female?” haha) With all of the colors in the plaid pattern, you can wear it a million different ways. (I styled it two different ways in this post…) I also tried it on with tan suede over-the-knee boots and a pair of blackwatch plaid pumps and loved it with those, too. #PlaidonPlaid

A little note about sizing… I’m wearing a 6 (I’m usually a 4) and it fits my broad shoulders perfectly. But the waist is quite large so belting it is my only option! So if your shoulders are normal sized, I’d definitely go with your regular size.

    I grew up going to a school where we wore a plaid skirt as part of the uniform. You would think as I got older I would not want anything to do with plaid or tartan–but just the opposite. I love it.
