plaid + thrift sisters link up

collage This week, Keren Charles of Two Stylish Kays, and I, are showing off our thrifted plaid!  Check out Keren’s blog to see how she styled her plaid outfit.

DSC_8695 DSC_8697 I have to admit that I don’t really own many plaid pieces mainly because I often have difficulties styling them.  Yes, that’s right.  I have styling challenges too!  But, thanks to my fashion rescue, Pinterest, I am able to style snatch some awesome ideas.

DSC_8700 DSC_8726 I thrifted this plaid crop top from a store here in San Diego, Frock You Vintage, for $5.  I have actually never seen a plaid crop top before.  Figured this was unique enough to  give it a try. I love the exposed zipper detail near the shoulders and the subtle pops of yellow in the striping.

DSC_8733 DSC_8701 As I was heading out for the evening, I added a long sleeve, high-lo chiffon blouse underneath.  It’s still rather warm in San Diego during the summer, but in the evenings, it does call for some long sleeves.   This blouse is a great example of how to transition your summer pieces to  the fall.

DSC_8738 Since I was feeling the “fall” vibe, I paired the blue plaid shirt with these Faded Glory maroon tights/jeggings that I have had since last season.   Can I tell you how much I love these tights.  I purchased them for $11 and have them in about four different colors.  While writing this post, I noticed that they are on clearance for $3.98 right now.  They are the right amount of thickness, the color is still awesome after many washes and  they are so comfy.  Definitely my best tights hands down.  You should definitely check them out!

DSC_8739 Completing the outfit is these Kenneth Cole booties that I thrifted from Goodwill for $17 and a JustFab pocketbook.  I liked how this outfit came out and can definitely see myself rocking plaid a little more.  I guess I need to add plaid to the thrift wish list moving forward.

  1. You both look so stylish in plaids! I love the creative idea of pairing the crop top plaid with a high low shirt!
    Xoxo, darling.

  2. Your cropped plaid top is too cute and I love the color of your pants. I’d totally wear this outfit. Angele looks great also. I love her leather jacket and booties. Pleasure linking up again, Ayana. =)

    1. Angelic,
      I love colors and would only wish more women would embrace it. I think it definitely brings an outfit to another level if we incorporate colors and patterns. Thank you for stopping by.

    1. Chelsea,
      Hahaha. That is funny! I don’t hoard it because I am always a little confused as how to style it. But I think that I might try adding a few more pieces to my closet for this fall and winter. Thank you for stopping by.

  3. That plaid crop is awesome, especially for the shoulder details! Honestly I have very few plaid items as well. A scarf (or maybe two), a pair of slip ons (or maybe two) and one shirt. That’s it. What I would really really love to have is a plaid skirt.

    Anyway, I think you resolved your style challenge quite fine 🙂 My style challenge is to not be boring myself with the same old tired looks 😛
