Who doesn't love some good ol' flannel???
In my opinion, plaid is the quintessential sign that fall is on the horizon and if you don't already have a checkered number in your wardrobe, what are you waiting for, love?! ;) Currently, Forever 21 has some crazy cute, affordable tartan pieces from the classic button-down shirt, to cozy dresses and adorable school-girl skirts. Plaid is this season's must-have print!
I loved this hunter green & navy plaid shirt dress from F21 so much so that I purchased another in a different colorway. Its easy, comfortable and can be worn several different ways. As is, belted, with tights, over jeans or leggings, with a long sleeved top, under a jean or leather jacket, wearing a skirt over it to give the appearance that its solely a top...I mean, the possibilities are endless. I will for sure do another post featuring a unique spin on how I'd take this dress to the next level for a more grown & sexy look ;)
For this specific ensemble, I wanted to achieve a more tailored look and give myself more of a waist to an otherwise boxy dress. I decided to belt this oversized number with a simple skinny brown belt, which instantly gave the appearance of a more put together look without overly accessorizing. I topped the look off with a brown hat, this super cute camel cross-body, which perfectly fits my essentials, and to break up the look a tiny bit, I opted for these black booties with zipper detailing instead of sticking to the obvious brown hues.
Now, where is that fall weather? High 80/Low 90 temps, you're killing my vibe!
