It's been chilly here. Had to turn on the furnace chilly. That means jeans and sweaters and jackets have been pulled out, and we've begun to add layers around the house - specifically blankets!
All this cozy makes a girl begin to appreciate autumn, and with autumn comes tartan, right? Whose with me?
Btw have you ever wondered what the difference between tartan and plaid is?
Maybe it's just me, lol.. but I looked it up…
according to Wikipedia (the absolute authority, right?)
"Tartan is often called plaid in North America, but in Scotland, a plaid is a tartan cloth slung over the shoulder as a kilt accessory, or a plain ordinary blanket such as one would have on a bed"
and there you have it, your most burning questions answered here :)
So this is not by any means a fashion blog,
but I've def got my eye one a few things for the wardrobe as well as the house…
A skinny plaid shirt to tuck in under a sweater,
and in my dream shopping cart, a plaid suit, worn so well.
The bottom photo is what started it all. Damn you, pinterest!
I passed on a sweater like the top right one and am still regretting it.
Early fall outfits
Late fall outfits
(or maybe early fall, if you live near me!)
Since I'm blogging from canada, I'm going to say that buffalo check counts as plaid,
because they are inseparable here - Canadians being lumberjacks and all ;)
That Kate spade bag is the cutest. THE cutest.
Of course a shirt from Aritzia is on the list. Enter store = budget blown!
Yes ebay - that last one is a not a great photo but is much more vibrant up close,
and is also available in a pattern close to Black Watch.
Cost : $11.00. Really.
The slipon's are from Target, and I bought them in the leopard as well, not going to lie!
Those yummy Hunter boots are available at Marshall's right now… really trying to stay away, sort of…
Any plaid items tickling your fancy? Maybe you are lucky enough to still be living with sunshine…
I'll move onto plaid items for the home later in the week - must get to work! Three consults on the go - x am
