Mad for Plaid.

 I'm not what you would call a die hard "trend follower." Rather I tend to invest in more long term basic pieces when shopping, versus the "this is so hot right now" mentality.  However, like most people, each season I find myself longing for a bit of a refresh, and it's hard not to notice the two "trends" that seem to be showing up in every September issue landing in my mailbox; lots of plaid, piled high with gold jewelry.  Year after year, I consider a flannel shirt to be a staple in my winter wardrobe, so clearly this is one trend I will be adopting this coming fall. Glamming it up with some heavy (faux) gold jewelry... well, that is just the icing on the cake for me. Even better, a plaid shirt, with a different patterned plaid scarf in the same color scheme? Really, did you even have to ask? 

Here is a little plaid inspiration from the professionals...

... and what is sure to be my fall uniform.

P.S. If you are in search of a great flannel, I am a huge fan of Madewell's selection! xx
