A Hint of Plaid

PlaidI think a number of my ex-boyfriends would die laughing if they saw this post… the girl that hates plaid is wearing two outfits featuring plaid! Like I often say, my style and interest changes constantly. What I love one year, I’ll hate the next. Today I like pink tomorrow it’s green.

Although it isn’t my favourite thing on this planet, I do enjoy a more casual look with a simple plaid shirt that I can style up with big jewellery. If I hadn’t of been sick on St. Patrick’s Day this year I would have had the greatest outfit lined up! Emerald green and royal blue plaid… there’s always next year I suppose if I still have the shirt!

My original plan for these was to wear a light knit cardigan or sweater over top through the winter but the look hasn’t been quite right.
