Out of the Week - Copy Cat Plaid

Well, I spent last weekend in South Dakota. Other than an airport disaster (it's a long story that I'm guessing no one wants to hear), it was lovely. I got to meet a lot of great people who work in my field and I walked away with a lot of great ideas. The weather was also lovely. Between 50-60 degrees the entire time. Not what I expected, but wonderful nonetheless. I thought it would be a good time to try out an outfit similar to one that I pinned way long ago.


I pinned the below image, and while I couldn't incorporate the model-y hand-on-head pose, I was pleased to remember that I had this puffy vest that hadn't seen a lot of light for a few years. Bam - outfit!  How often do you try to replicate outfits that you pin?








Plaid: Old Navy (Nearly the same)
Vest: Old Navy (similar with a removable collar!)
Jeggins: Old Navy
Boots: Naturalizer

  4. I like it. Great way to wear plaid. I'm a huge plaid fan, although I really don't have any.

  7. Very GQ, even without the model hand-in-hair pose. :)

    (Except, I thought GQ usually had girls not as clothed? In which case, never mind! You are wonderfully and sufficiently clothed.)

    1. Haha, I wondered the exact same thing about that picture! Why does it say "GQ" on it?? I'm afraid to look at a GQ magazine because I think you're right - the models are only half dressed!

  11. Love your version and the pin! Your vest is so cute - love the little details by the buttons! I wish I would have saved some of my vests from years ago!

  13. I keep telling you to add more Outfit posts. Maybe make them bi-weekly or better yet, three times a week, since being busy is hard to commit to them daily. I love your easy, effortless but beautiful style. That plaid button-down and light puffy Dove Gray vest are perfection, together =)

    P.S. By the way, last Sunday, your outfit was among others features on my new Sunday Feature titled "Week's Best Looks". Did you check it out?

    1. I did see it, Ada! I left you a comment - such a fun idea!

      I'm not sure if I'll ever move to more outfit posts... there are so many other things I want to blog about so we'll see!

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
