I made a swift walk thru at Target about a month ago, on a mission for a specific thing, when I saw these red tartan plaid pants and wondered. Just simply wondered if my backside could handle a pair of plaid nearly thirty years later. That day, I decided it couldn't and so I kept on walking. And then! I saw all the cute tartan for FALL and FELL IN LOVE! Thirty years later or not, y'all, this mama bought herself some plaid pants! I ordered these from Target and even though the reviews are just "meh?" I can see myself getting away with them at the Mother Ship if I wear just the right blouse. I can dress them down on the weekends with a cute baseball tee and converse or a chunky sweater. I'm very pleased with my purchase, so I wouldn't write them completely off just because of the fair reviews.
So that purchase has me sharing some rad plaid inspiration with y'all today and I would love to know your thoughts, too. I absolutely love everything about this look for the office! Will turtlenecks please stand up?! When are you guys gonna make a comeback? No lie. I have one black turtleneck that I absolutely refuse to throw out of my closet. Definitely a turtleneck kinda girl! Love this dressier and brighter pair of slacks!
Not sure yet if I'm ready for a plaid skirt, but I love this pencil skirt and ruffle. I tend to shy away from lighter plaids. What about you?
EEK!! Y'all know me and THIS says. it. all.
I've mentioned I'm on the Navy Train for Fall and so of course I would like this outfit and twist on another pattern. Plaid doesn't always have to be red and black. When I was in college, I had a pair of navy and green plaid pants. I remember they had pleats in the front, so I guess they were more slacks than pants.
But this look right here inspires me the most! Stripes, plaid, and PEARLS! YES! So me! And SO Mother Ship and office worthy!
So have you made any plaid purchases for Fall? Hopefully a cool down in temps will happen soon enough and we'll all be inspired for new "rad" pieces to add to our closets!
