This week’s collaboration theme is by far one of my favorites for Fall. I haven’t been shy about my love for plaid/tartan this year, as evidenced by my previous posts here and here.Although I have to admit that plaid may not be the easiest pattern to mix and match with, it’s so fun to see how popular the trend has become and it’s especially exciting to seeing how others have experimented with the trend. I love finding inspirations through other fashionistas, and I was dying to see how the other 5 girls put together their outfits this week! In this outfit, I guess you could say I opted for the “easy way out” with a dress since I didn’t have to do too much head scratching as to what I was going to pair it with. Plus, it was a no brainer for me to pair the dress with my new favorite OTK boots after seeing my personal fashion icon Olivia Palermo wear this similar outfit during Paris fashion week. I thought it would be fun to add a touch of chambray, some sparkles and a bright cheery red coat to make the outfit a bit more festive. And to let you in on a little secret? I actually wore this exact outfit a few weeks ago and didn’t get around to posting it on my blog – but I couldn’t help but wear it again for this week’s collaboration post because I love the dress so much! (Repeat offender? Oh well!) Can you tell I’m ready for Christmas??
