Whenever fall comes around I always have an initial moment of melodramatic dread. My mind instantly goes to grey clouds & rainy days, heck rainy months, when I begin to think of fall that I trick myself into resenting fall rather than embracing it. Though I am always excited for fall fashion, I am never excited for the rain, rain, rain. Over the last few weeks though, we have been blessed to not only have blue skies, but we also have beautiful sun. It’s been amazing to go outside and be instantly submerged in crisp fall air & warm summery sunshine.
On days like these I love to make the most of the sunshine by styling my sweater t-shirts over blouses, and lately, I’ve been loving this plaid blouse in particular. Plaid has been considered a huge trend this year and though I absolutely love it, I’ve also always felt like it was a bit of a staple come cool weather; So really trend or no trend, it’s a piece I nearly consider a staple item during these chilly months. One of my favourite aspects of plaid prints has to be how they layer. Whether you mix plaid with a print, wear it with a solid colour or wear it all by itself, it always looks festively cozy & stylish, making it a print worth investing in!
