Plaid to meet you

Plaid seems to be synonymous with fall. Here's a collection of fall items in plaid, all on sale and most under a $50 price point. (Not all sales prices are reflected below- click through to the retailer so see the sale price.)

Loft is having a 30-40% off sale on several items. Old Navy is having a 50% off sale. I love my cotton plaid from Old Navy similar to the one below. I can actually wear it during our warm falls as opposed to flannel.  Save 15-20% off at JCPenney with code 37shop.

Early fall work wear

Blazer- Limited  option

pants- Loft  option  option  option
belt- Belks  option
necklace- JCP  option  option
earrings- JCP   option     option
Fall is still very warm for us here so transition outfits and early fall outfits have more to do with color and pattern than with your typical fall pieces like scarves and sweaters. This orange top paired with navy and plaid made a perfect fall office outfit without being too warm. I love the booties with the ankle pants too. I typically save these booties for the spring (seen here) due to their lighter color but I'm utilizing them for  fall transitions until it gets a little cooler and I can bust out my suede booties.
It started raining while I was taking these photos. Ignore the rain drops.
Hope your week is off to a great start.

Beachy waves

Blazer- Limited
blouse- Express   option      option
pants- Loft   option  option
belt- Belks   option  option
necklace Kendra Scott
shoes- TJMaxx    option  option
This outfit was created out of a need for something that didn't need ironing and could get me out the door  quickly. I had already wasted too much time on hair. I was pretty sure that I had already worn something similar but I couldn't find it in my archives.  You can see five ways I've previously worn these pants here and a look back at the blouse here. I suppose this outfit would be another nod to fall.
My attempt to style the new haircut led to some accidental waves and curls, so I just went with it and created beachy waves all over. I actually got compliments on my hair this day. I attempted the waves two other days before I got my hair cut again, but they didn't turn out quite as well as they did this day. I have a lot of hair, thick hair. Curling or creating beachy waves takes a lot of time that I usually don't have in the mornings. I am NOT a morning person.

Layering is tricky

Layering a button up shirt under a sweater is something that I have yet to master. I love the look on others but always feel like it adds way to much bulk around the middle to my short torso. It really has everything to do with what you are trying to layer. In my mind, these pieces would work, but in reality they didn't. Even though I like the color scheme of this outfit, I doubt I will ever repeat it. The shirt underneath is too bulky and the sweater is too thin. The shirt would work with a chunkier looser sweater and a thinner smoother shirt would work with this sweater. So, it really does come down to which pieces you are trying to layer.
I've also read about putting a tank between the two shirts for a smoother fit, but I've not tried it. I think it would be too uncomfortable. Have you tried it? Do you have any layering tips to share? I'd love to hear them.
By the way, did you catch a sneak peek of these shoes on Instagram last week?

Camel and navy

There's just something about camel and navy that make it a classic winter combination. Add plaid to the mix and it's definitely screaming winter. These pieces made for a comfy and cozy, yet polished office look. It was a great way to start this week on Monday. But I'm still glad today is Friday.
It's supposed to rain tomorrow so I guess we are looking forward to another weekend indoors cleaning and organizing. Funny how a new year brings that on.

Plaid pants- five ways

I guess you  know by know that I really like this cobalt color, in  particular these shoes. These shoes run around 22-$30 at Payless depending on sales and they are from their comfort plus line. And they are truly comfortable. I'm not paid by Payless to say that. I don't mind letting you know when something is a great deal. In fact, I've got a pair ordered from this line in nude and bought a black and white pair while they were on sale last week.
But this really wasn't about the shoes. It's about the pants. I almost didn't buy them because they were more of a splurge than a need, but I'm glad I did. I've found several outfit possibilities in them during the winter. The last time I wore them I realized I should pair them with a cobalt top. I was originally thinking the cobalt sweater, but decided to go with a lighter layer since the weather is warming up. Silly Mother Nature actually gave me a cold day last week when I wore this and I could have worn the sweater. Oh well.
Below are five ways to wear these pants (including the above outfit.)
