mad about plaid

waffles && and i are embracing the season in today's post where we strut our stuff in a plaid pairing

at this time of the year, it's a shame not to wear a little bit of plaid && flannel! so waffles && i paired our plaids with a bit of polka dot before stepping out on this crisp day.
if you are shaped like me, you may know a shift dress (or shirt) is not your friend. I am curvy with a small waist so a shift dress usually does nothing for me! so to make this look work, i cinched my top at the waist with a bold contrasting belt && slimmed my center with a tailored tux vest.
everyone has a flannel shirt somewhere in their closet (i like mine cause the ruffles make it more courtney-esque) so next time you dust it off try pairing it with polka dot denim, a scarf or even a bag for that fun touch of pattern mixing.

  1. I'm kind of obsessed with your plaid shirt and the way that you are wearing it.

    Also, I emailed you back but I think your email went down :( I'm so sorry this happened to you. If you need me to help with anything, let me know.


  2. thanks channing you're a doll!!! I don't really own any flannel or plaid but came across this at my sisters closet (its like a swanky crossroads or buffalo exchange) and fell in love!!!!
