Plaid- One Outfit, Three Ways

To me winter means plaid. And I love that it is so trendy again. At times it makes me feel punk. At times it makes me feel preppy. And at times it brings me back to high school and grunge and giant flannel shirts over long underwear and Pearl Jam Ten over and over and over.

The first outfit is me trying to re-create a mom appropriate version of my high school self. Add a leather jacket and I would feel positively edgy. But since taking care of four kids on our umpteenth snow day isn’t exactly the edgiest life, I’ll just pretend.

Plaid 1


Shirt: Old Navy (similar)

T-Shirt: Old Navy (similar)

Jeans: Nordstrom

Shoes: Target (similar)

Same shirt, but under a grey sweater for a nice pop of color to what could be a boring neutral. I am not loving my necklace choice, but I didn’t have a lot that looked right. What would you use? I’m thinking maybe a tassel necklace?

Plaid 2


Sweater: Gap (similar)

Shirt: Old Navy (similar)

Jeans: Old Navy

Boots: Nine West (similar)

Necklace: Forever 21 (similar)

First let’s discuss that I am in a ponytail/ bun rut. I really need to find the energy to do my hair. Then let’s talk about how long I have wanted a plaid scarf because I keep seeing them all over Pinterest and loving them. I’m not sure why these jeans have a hot pink hue in the pictures, but they are really red. I love all the color combos in this, but this scarf ifs really big and bulky and can’t quite figure out how to wear it. In this weather I just love how warm it keeps me.

Scarf: H&M

Sweater: Target (similar)

Shirt: Target (similar)

Jeans: Old Navy

Boots: c/o Land’s End

  1. Oh, I love the different ways you wore plaid! I love the sweater version. I actually think the necklace works really well, but I tend to be fashion-challenged. ;-) .

  2. Oooh I love that scarf! I have definitely been wishing for one of the big plaid ones that are so in right now. I like the owl necklace – a tassel necklace would be cool but I think yours looks good!

  5. The last look is my favorite! I have heard about that scarf and how it is similar to a popular one from Zara that is no longer available. Super cute! Caylee did a post recently on scarf tying and her scarves were large like that one. Here is the link http://www.morepiecesofme.com/2014/01/the-scarf-tying-obsession.html. Check it out! Your looks great though like you have it…and go for the rocker vibe…snow day babysitting be damned!
