Oh how I love that it finally felt like Fall last week! And on a day that I didn’t end up in my gym clothes all day. I’m honest, it happens. #sowhat. #wealldoit. In any case, it was the perfect chance to break out the plaid shirt and to wear these new booties (or sneakers?), I got from Nordstrom recently. I was on the hunt for a cute gray shoe and when I saw this pair by Caslon, I knew they were exactly what I was looking for.
I don’t know about you but one of the patterns I think of year after year when I think of Fall is plaid. It took me many years to embrace plaid as something I could comfortably wear but I’m so glad I did! It’s perfect for going on a hayride, apple and pumpkin picking, or just sitting out by a fire. My top is by Rails and while this brand is on the pricier side ($148, ideally you can purchase on sale or with a promotion), they do make some of the best plaid tops out there. They are soft, lay well on pretty much everybody type, and come in the best plaid patterns I’ve consistently seen. So while mine is a year old, here are some new ones I’m liking:
Some other plaid tops I like as well that are under $100:
Boot or Sneaker?
As I mentioned, when I saw this Caslon Ezra shoe at Nordstrom, it was calling my name. While I’m not sure if it’s a boot or a shoe, I love that it will work in to the colder temps of Winter. Assuming I can bear to have a slight bit of skin exposed…..In any case, it comes in 2 other colors and is the perfect shade of gray in my opinion. Plus, it has a very comfortable insole and is reasonably priced!
If you don’t own a plaid top yet, or you haven’t purchased one in awhile, I highly suggest going and buying one BEFORE Winter comes calling and you’re just throwing on a sweater. ?
By the way, here’s a cute outtake from this little session. It’s so hard to get pictures with my 2 “fur babies” so I took the quick chance while it presented itself. That’s Buster on the left and little Lucy on the right.
