This week is brought to you by: “a current favorite accessory, feathers, and plaid”.
And for your viewing pleasure, I give you: plaid (of course).
I’m cheating a bit because, if you’ve been following my other posts, you’ll notice something familiar about this outfit.
Yes, you’re not experiencing déja vu; this ensemble is actually part of my Common Threads challenge, the one I used for my Euro Chic/Posh Eclectic classic white button up look.
I really appreciate how this screams professional yet accessible at the same time. The top is crisp and sharp, but is softened by my go-to slouchy cardi. The skirt – potentially severe and school-marm because of the plaid – is mitigated by its being a wraparound, making it reminiscent of British gentry and heathered fields instead.
That said, I did give a nod to my academic inclinations by completing the look with pearls and sensible shoes, making the overall vibe lean heavily into teacher territory, but I figure I’m in education stepped in so far that should I wade no more, returning were as tedious as go o’er. Might as well work it, eh?
For Alex’s turn next week, I challenge her to the following: something white, something oversized, or something sensible.
Vive le vendredi!

Last week, Whitney was radiant in her floral date night look:
The prompts she gave me were “summer-to-fall transition, velvet, or floral for fall”.
For these transitional days, I love this lightweight plaid button down. The thin fabric is perfect for the still Summery afternoon temps, but the pattern is decidedly Fall. I’m wearing it over a simple base outfit of white tee, jeans, and nude ballet flats, and I’ve added my current favorite necklace for interest.
Next week, Maricel can choose from her current favorite accessory, feathers, and plaid.
