totally as if.
i have been eyeing plaid skirts all year - i mean, the 90s are back in full-force - so when this vintage Talbots beauty showed up in one of my favorite insta-thrift shops, i couldn't type 'sold' fast enough.
the trouble with pleated plaid comes in the styling. it's waaaay to easy to go Catholic school girl or Cher Horowitz without even trying. and since it's still too hot to layer, a preppy look with cableknits was out. i decided to keep things simple with a thin sweater and my favorite nude pumps. (BTW - these d'orsay nude pumps are perfection and are on sale right now!)
and since i'm not afraid of mixing my reds & purples, i finished the work look with a classic monogrammed clutch from Swagger Gifts. OK GUYS - real talk.... this clutch is $15. yep. $15 monogrammed. amazing deal, right?!!? SO amazing in fact, i think more than one person on my Christmas list will be receiving their very own. it comes in 8 different colors with your choice of thread color. you're welcome.
i hope everyone has a great weekend!
