Ooh, a Sunday Post! For two reasons… today is my birthday (I’m 34, which is not very exciting), but also (and more excitingly) today, Adam Lippes debuts a collection of amazing plaid pieces at Target. Fun fact: when I first started blogging, Adam was the first designer to ever reply to one of my tweets. A blogger remembers these things.
To celebrate the launch, Target asked me to style two head to toe plaid looks. I was a little bit nervous at first but with a little guidance from Pinterest, I was on my way. It ended up being really fun, as it pushed me out of my comfort zone a bit. Plaid is fun as you can play by the rules, or break them by experimenting a little bit.
In the first look, I played by the rules… opting for a classic shift dress. To make it a little more fun though, I added a scarf in a different plaid. It works though, as both pieces have red/orange woven throughout, which helps keep the look cohesive. When mixing patterns, that’s the key… keep the color palettes somewhat similar and you will be fine.
For the second look, I mixed things up a little more, pairing windowpane check + buffalo plaid. Originally, I was going to style the pants with the matching t-shirt, but once I tried on this sweater, I changed my mind.
Also, I should note that this sweater is amazing – so comfy and cozy. I’ll be wearing it all Fall long (I think it would be cute over a flannel button down, too!)
(and a cute outtake, because making friends is important.)
