I’m linking up with The Pleated Poppy today for her weekly What I Wore Wednesday…and let’s face it, after I gathered the pics of what I’ve been wearing lately, everything had the same theme. Apparently, I’m…
Yup. It’s borderline embarrassing :). Every pic I have of me from last week is in PLAID! Y’all…I might need an intervention.
If you follow me on Pinterest, then you know that I love pinning fall and winter style…
…and among other things…there’s a lot of plaid :).
Today my What I Wore Wednesday post is all about plaid shirts (and even a plaid lipstick!)…and then next week, plaid scarves.
Here are a few things about today’s post…
1. There is a lot of plaid in it.
2. Some might think I have plaid issues and should seek some sort of plaid therapy ASAP.
3. Some might be correct in that.
4. Some of this stuff is new from this season and some of it is from past years…thankfully, stores like J Crew and Gap tend to put out the same stuff each season, so even if I bought it last year or the year before, there is the same item back out this year.
5. If you’re not a plaid person, I apologize in advance.
I’m drawn to plaid every fall because it’s cozy, it’s colorful, it layers well, you can roll the sleeves up, keep them down, wear it with jeans, wear it with a skirt, wear it with solids and even wear it with leopard…it’s plaid and it just works for me in the fall. Here’s what I wore last week…and let’s face it, today, I’m wearing plaid too.
I’m going to go ahead and throw gingham into my plaid category. Gingham/plaid/same effect, no? J Crew has my favorite gingham shirts! These are cotton (not flannel), so they’re light and very easy to layer (keep scrolling to see this shirt layered). I love the navy gingham, but it comes in several different colors too. For a size reference, I buy 0 in these shirts (they size from 000 to 16).
This is a Gap boyfriend shirt that is at least two years old. Some of my favorite shirts to buy at Gap are the boyfriend style button ups. I’ve washed and dried this one a million times and it still looks great! I think they run a titch big, so I always get an XS when I buy one. They have some really cute colors out right now too…especially for the holiday season!
And if you’re mad about flannel…(who doesn’t love flannel?!?!)…then my favorite flannel plaid shirts can be found at J Crew. They’re just so soft! Flannel shirt, black pants, leopard pumps…happy, happy, happy!
This plaid is pink and blue :). I hate to play favorites, but this one might be mine. It’s super soft, fits really well and the color is so pretty in person. For a size reference, I bought an XS.
I layered another J Crew flannel under my J Crew sweater. These sweaters are my VERY VERY favorite! This one right here is several years old. I have this sweater in like five different colors (bought over the last five years). I love that this sweater is light because it makes it great for layering underneath…and then when the weather isn’t cool, I’ll just pair this light sweater with a tank underneath. These are my J Crew Toothpick jeans that I wear all the time and then I’m smitten with these brown booties.
In the sweaters, I wear a small. In the flannels, a 0. The jeans are 26 and the booties are true to size (so an 8 for me).
I wore my flannel later that day without the sweater :).
Hey look! Same gingham shirt from the first pic and with my green J Crew sweater on top for church :). Again, this sweater is several years old but thankfully, J Crew keeps making them (in 15 different colors!).
After church, I swapped my skirt and booties for jeans and flats and we took the kids to see a movie.
And while we’re on plaid…
This is me from last year in my J Crew plaid vest :). They have it out again this year in navy and white. For the love of plaid :).
And since we’re on J Crew vests…and plaid…here’s another peek at my favorite fall outfit from last week…with a plaid shirt underneath :).

#4: Fall tote
#5: Fall plaid button ups (in so many great patterns!)

Whew! That’s what I wore
Wednesday pretty much every day.
On my foodie blog tonight…
…a savory Pumpkin & Sausage Pot Pie!
If you’ve never tried pumpkin in a savory dish, then now is the time. Pumpkin pairs so well with sausage and makes an excellent fall supper :).
