Lookbook: mad for plaid

Two lookbook posts in a row?! ugh. I know. Life still has not slowed down and I have no time for creativity so thought I'd just post another outfit.

I am crazy for plaid this season. I actually don't own any plaid so I've been on the lookout for cute plaid shirts. I found this perfectly ruffled plaid shirt at this small boutique in Seattle and had to buy it. The boots are one of my latest purchases from Gilt, my favorite online store. I am truly addicted to it. What would I do without my daily Gilt fix?

What I'm wearing:
Jacket: Club Monaco
Shirt: ???
Jeans: Taverniti So
Boots: Sergio Rossi

I am loving the colors in the background. love when the leaves change colors.

Here's some closeups of the ruffles.

Also a glimpse of my accessories. The ring does not match but I don't care as it was my wedding present from J and I have yet to take it off. It is my favorite ring ever (well, next to my e-ring and wedding bands). Will do a full post on it later.

(if you look closely you can see a little puppy paw in the background! kills me, so cute. Macho likes to be around when I take pictures)

Hope you all are having a terrific Monday! I have not been great at getting around to your blogs but look forward to catching up to what has been going on with all of you!

Oh and I am so horrible because I still have not announced the winner of the Turtle Giveaway. I promise it will happen this week!

  1. CUTENESS! I'm jealous of your boots - they were a steal and unavail in my size. Pouty-face.

    What about the Nordie sale? Where are all the new-found Choos? I must see!

  5. You are SO cute! That shirt is TDF. I love that even though plaid is pretty trendy this season, you don't look like you're trying to 'fit in'. You look very authentic. Lovely indeed.

    Totally reminds me of this pic that the Sart took in Paris and posted on Saturday: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_qjpwnPW4c1o/SSgEFihEZLI/AAAAAAAAEcs/C-37g2DX0JA/s1600-h/1058LVGerWeb.jpg
