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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
