So, I dyed my hair back to brown. And I like it? It’s funny, it’s my natural color and I’ve had it for going on 34 years, but three or so months of a blonder look and now I’m torn! This color IS easier to maintain, though, and suits me (if I remember to fill in my brows and put on lipstick!) Bear with me while I figure out my new normal, okay?
On that note, I wanted to show you this cute, plaid ruffled dress from Lulu*s that I’ve been wearing for a couple of weeks now! I wore it to the Gone Girl premier in town earlier this month, AND to a friends’ surprise birthday party, then out and about with my kids on some errands this past weekend. I’m in love, and when I’m in love I wear things to death. This is meant to be a dress, but I like to layer it with skinny jeans and ankle boots for a bit more coverage. PLUS, it was in the thirties this morning, so pants and a jacket were key!
I was thinking of a way to make plaid more fun for this time of year, and not cliched. I’ve worn it basic with jeans, on a dress, and swathed in a scarf, but now I wanted to mix it up with a bit of leopard. I love the mix of these prints, especially when they are both saturated and full of life. I think leopard tends to go with everything, and in a jacket form it makes an ordinary outfit really POP. I also love plaid mixed with faux leather. It’s the juxtaposition of a fabric or pattern that shouldn’t go tougher, but does and CAN.
Tell me, how do YOU like to wear plaid in the Fall?
P.S. See how my friend Megan, at Chasing Davies, styles HER plaid look from Lulu*s!
