Falling for Plaid

The first day of fall was yesterday and that means it's time to break out all things fall, even if it's STILL close to 90 degrees everyday! Maybe if I dress like it's cold, it'll get cold?

The weather here is trying really hard, but it'll be high 60s in the morning and in the 90s by noon. #thestruggle I envy those who can break out the cable knit sweaters and Bean Boots in October!




And no you aren't seeing things. You've seen this dress here before! Did I mention it's one of my favorites? It's perfect for our weather here and when it does start to get cold, it'll be perfect for layering!







Also, I'm kinda super happy that the whole "tie your sweatshirt around your waist" trend is coming back in. I was a big fan when I was growing up (hello nerd status), but now that's trendy, my inner eight year old is ecstatic! It's so easy and no more forgetting your sweater or sweatshirt at places like restaurants and the movies. #winning




Dress: Bella Dia Boutique similar here | Plaid Shirt: old JCP similar here and here | Booties: similar here and here | Boot Socks: similar here |  Necklace: similar Kendra Scott | Watch: Michael Kors


I've had this JCP plaid shirt for awhile and since I'm into mixing and matching new pieces and incorporating pieces from my sister's closets, my wallet (and savings) are benefitting GREATLY. Fall style doesn't have to be expensive and the pieces don't even have to be new to be on trend! 


P.S. I think this season, I'm going to be really obsessed with booties with socks.

  3. I didn't know tying around the waist was in or out! It seems like such a practical thing to be in at all times! I don't have a plaid shirt but do love the look on others. Maybe I'll search the thrift stores and clothing swaps - love those! You look super cute in your booties!

  7. WAIT. Tying your shirt around your waist is back in style?!?! YES!!! I've been wondering what to do with my discarded jackets for the last 15+ years. This look reminds me a little of Boy Meets World.

  16. This looks so incredibly comfy and it makes me wish it was cooler here already!!! It'll be about another month before I could wear that and not pass out from heat stroke, haha. But you look gorgeous!

  18. I love my flannels, but when it's still too hot out, they are perfect for accessorizing! Plus, if you get cold, you can just untie it from your waist and wear it!

  22. I love the look of boots and dresses together. I love the socks you paired it with too! I totally understand the struggle of hot days and cool evenings. I can't wait until it's cold enough to wear fall clothing ALL day.

  28. You are rocking' the plaid. I understand completely, so hard to dress for Fall when it is still in the 90's here in Dallas, but when it does, I would love to be able to wear plaids and flannels.

  29. I am obsessed with plaid for fall! I just bought a really cute plaid tank top from Kohl's. I've never seen any plaid tank tops, so I was pretty excited about that. I like your idea about wearing fall clothes in hopes that it will get cooler. I can't wait for it to be cooler in TX.
