Now & Later: It's a Plaid thing

I can remember how big of a trend plaid was in the 90's.  I remember borrowing one of my grandpa's brown and blue plaid shirts.  My cousin Cheryl and I were in the same grade, and we would take turns borrowing it from him.  This is a trend you do not have to spend too much money on, you could either raid our hubby's closet, or find a couple of plaid shirts at the thrift store like I did. 

One of the reasons I love this trend is because there are so many ways to wear a plaid shirt.  You can layer it underneath a leather jacket, throw a scarf over it with jeans.  I wanted to show you two ways I wore my plaid shirt.  The first is a skater skirt, black booties, red bag, and black belt.  The second look I just swapped the skirt for some comfy jeans, and I had a relaxed look to run around town with kids.

  4. Hmmm.... I used to love plaid shirts!!! I haven't worn plaid in ages though! I used to have tons of the button down comfy ones! but they never looked quite so stylish!

  5. I love plaid shirts. I can never find a button down shirt that buttons up and doesn't look like I'm wearing a garbage bag!
