Mad for Plaid and Some Fall Favorites

It's getting to be that time of year again. The unmistakable cooler air of fall is near, sort of, and all I want to do is bust out my plaid shirts and drink apple cider and pumpkin spice lattes already. What can I say? Fall is great, and I love me a plaid shirt every now and then.

Wearing plaid just might run in my blood. Considering that I grew up pretty darn close to Canada, where plaid is practically their national uniform, it only makes sense that plaid be a part of my wardrobe. Not to mention my dad wears his fair share of plaid button up shirts too. I was certainly made to wear plaid. I am a northern Michigan girl after all.

yes, I'm also missing polish on two nails. don't judge.

I recently purchased this plaid beauty at Target for only $17.99 people! Target often has cute clothes, but I sometimes worry about the quality. For this price though, I felt it was worth adding a plaid shirt to my tiny collection. Why not? Plus I'm sort of in love with the indigo blue and red combo in this top.

This top is going to look perfect with my skinny jeans and brown boots. Not to mention, this plaid top makes me feel a little bit cowgirl too. That's never a bad thing in my book.

How about you... do you like wearing plaid too?
Love it or hate it?


  1. Sort of.... ha ha! The weather teases me! We have a couple days of beautiful 80 degree weather and then it shoots back up to 100 :( I'm beginning to think fall temps will never come!
    I don't own any plaid! CRAZY! I need to change that! (After the baby. I don't think plaid will pair well with a big belly, ha ha)

  2. I love plaid!!! I wear it all the time, not only in the fall.

  3. I have never really been a huge fan of plaid before, but I am kind of in love with it for fall. xo
