Plaid & Pleather

Merry Christmas! Juuust kidding... but seriously. Doesn't the red/green combo in these pictures make you think of Christmas? After all, it's only 12 Fridays away... but who's really counting?! Anyway! 
I'm back :) Back from my vacation to St. Maarten [pictures to come] and my apparent vacation from blogging --I'm sorry!-- but I have good news! I just ordered the iPhone 6 [I've always been an android user so this will be difficult fun] and, aside from now being a part of the emoji club [insert hands in the air emoji], you will be able to shop my Instagram pictures [I'll fill you in on that later]. I also just bought a Mac [it's gorgeous as ever] with Photoshop so I won't have to go out to the school to edit every post --hallelujah! As I'm no longer a student, I'm sure this will please the people working in the computer lab. Blogging from home [hopefully] equals more blog posts!
Now, the outfit...
As we transition from summer to fall, it can be a wee bit difficult to decide on your #ootd. The weather is typically cooler in the morning, then by mid day it's hot as F! For me, this outfit is the middle ground. The leather shorts keep it cool because you're keeping the legs bare, and warm enough because they're [faux] leather... and leather is warm. Genius, I know. I then added the plaid top which was find at TJ [as most of my closet is] and black booties to add that fall touch! Voila!

Top: Seven via TJMaxx [this one, I dig.]| Shorts: JCPenney | Earrings: LC Lauren Conrad | Necklaces: HM | Cuffs: HM [similar here]| Ring: HM | Clutch: Kate Spade Saturday via TJMaxx | Booties: Diba

What kind of looks do you gravitate towards while transitioning from summer to fall?!


  1. This is such a classic pairing. I love your leather shorts! Congrats on finishing with school.

  2. So gorgeous, I love everything about this. I really need more plaid in my life. Also I adore your hair. I guess technically it's similar to mine but why does yours look so much better...
