Busy weekend so keeping it short today. When it’s chilly, add layers! If you become too warm, tie your denim jacket around your waist and you’re good to go.
Adding a graphic tee underneath keeps the outfit from looking too lumberjack-ish.
I’m not too crazy about denim with denim, even though I realize it’s perfectly acceptable. I prefer a larger contrast so if I paired this with jeans instead of black pants, they would be a deep dark wash.
I took pics tucked and untucked and surprisingly, I like the untucked better. I was afraid it would look too messy. Actually, it looks less bulky.
Tried a side knot but it gave my waist too much width. No one wants that!
Ahhhh…buffalo check. I went a little crazy decorating with this print last Christmas. It became wildly popular a few years ago and I was a little late jumping on the bandwagon. But, when I did, boy did I jump!
I also love it in my wardrobe! I added a western slant to today’s look by tying the shirt at the waist, styling pointed booties and adding a purse with fringe. The western look is having a moment right now and a denim skirt fits right in.
This outfit is nice because it can be worn now while we are still dealing with the warm, warm weather. Roll up those sleeves and you can be relatively comfortable when the temps dip to a chilly 80 degrees. Lol
I like a fitted shirt (if not fitted, I tend to look like a rectangle), but I also want a little wiggle room, especially if I’m tying at the waist.
I will usually go up a size; from medium to large to get the extra roominess. That usually makes the sleeves too long and the look is messy with slouchy sleeves. I just cuff them up one time and it solves the problem.
Or, roll the sleeves up to the elbow. You may need to do this anyway because of the warm weather!
Sometimes in life, something comes along that you just can’t resist. Well, that something has been presented to me. I hope you enjoy.
This post was written by a man so enamored with the pattern of plaid that he wanted to write a guest post on my blog. His favorite show “The Middle” may not have begun this man’s love of plaid (I’m thinking that began with his first onesie at birth), but Mike Heck has definitely reinforced this man’s almost daily use of it as a four season fashion statement. What follows may frighten or entertain you. You have been warned.
Plaidy Daddy here with a fashion feast for your consumption. It appears that plaid season is upon us. Remember, plaid comes in many distinctions and can be donned for any occasion. I chose this flirtatious ensemble because the beige framework of this design brings a subtle, but heightened contrast to the delicate hue of the overlying denim creating a concert of imagery with provincial style and appeal. Keep your eyes on the plaid ladies. EYES ON THE PLAID!

As cool as PlaidDaddy looks in his Overalls/Plaid ensemble, others can also rock the look. My week of Plaidtastic has begun and is now on my blog!
