Pretty in Plaid

I mentioned my backstory with plaid in my post yesterday, so by now you know it will always have a special place in my heart. Wearing plaid in fall is perfect, and pretty much every year it’s a good idea to throw this print in your outfits, it really never goes out of style. Please don’t try to wear all plaid, because unless you’re Cher Horowitz from Clueless it’s likely to be a total disaster. Add a touch of it to your outfit is a great way to pull a look together. I’ve selected some great finds in the photo above. Some are more expensive than others (aka that Ralph Lauren skirt!) but hey, a girl can dream.

The Sperry Top Sider bag and REI hat would make GREAT gifts for the holidays. I know that here in Cali there is probably no reason for me to wear that hat unless I went up to the mountains but I love giving them as gifts because they just look adorable and I know my brother would wear one on ski trips . The bag is a great find considering it’s plaid AND a crossbody. ¬†Everything else gift yourself with this season!
