Mad about Plaid

 photo plaid_zps135fa588.jpg
It occurred to me over Christmas when my dad bought me that amazing plaid scarf that I do not own nearly enough plaid. I quickly righted that with a trip to the sale section at Zara where I fell in love with this plaid chiffon number. I have to say chiffon is one of my favourite fabrics, I am all about comfort these days and it's perfect for style as well as comfort.
I decided to add my blazer and heeled booties to dress it up a bit for a fancier day. I spend so much of my days in athletic wear that I can't pass up an opportunity to put on something a bit more spiffy. A pop of colour, a few punky accessories and I'm set ;)

  1. I love plaid but this plaid... is a grown up plaid. It is a plaid that drinks a bottle of wine after dinner and can talk about that wine's boquet. Love it.

  2. Damn, I love that dress! I'm so mad that I didn't see it on a recent Zara trip...

  4. looking all cute! loving your accessories

  5. adorable. I am with you...I need to own more plaid too! =)


  6. i feel like red plaid is one of those things that you can keep buying because no two are really the same. very cute!

  7. I always loved this dress at Zara, it looks great on you!

  8. Love this dress! You can NEVER have enough plaid, but it's a unique find in a dress.

    Based on your blog, it's hard to believe you spend much of your time in athletic gear. Do you find having this blog forces you to dress up a little bit more than you otherwise would?

  9. I love this look and the pop of color with your clutch! Also, way to get out in the snow and take your pictures, I'm hiding indoors because I'm a baby!


  10. I agree I've been digging plaid lately as well - and I own almost none. A plaid dress is something I'd really like to acquire this year. Yours is fabulous!

    Also totally loving that necklace! :D



Thank you for the love!
