Hello Lovelies! Welcome back to another installment of Trend Thursday. Hope you are doing well? You are? That’s awesome. Okey dokey…moving on. 🙂
You know what has been EVERYWHERE? (if you read the title of this post, you would have guessed correctly) It’s PLAID. I know right?! Plaid. Like, that stuff that your grandpa wore. Apparently, because I am nerd and I looked it up, Plaid has actually been a thing since the 8th century BC, when it was used in Celtic tartans. That’s right. Tartans, like in Braveheart! (“They’ll NEVER take our FREEDOM!!”)
Anyway, going off on a tangent here, Plaid and Tartans were everywhere on the runway for the Fall/Winter Ready to Wear collections.
and my personal favorite
Isn’t that PRETTY??!! I love it so much. Of course purchasing one of these outifts is gonna set you back a pretty penny. If you got the loot and you want to spend it then, good for you, I’m jealous! Of course, I do not have thousands of dollars to spend on these things, but I still like to look trendy and, thankfully, these things trickle down to us common folk through the department chains like Target. And that’s where I found this beauty.
Isn’t it cute!! A plaid pencil skirt from Target and, BONUS, it’s less than $25 AND it has pockets. That’s like winning the skirt lottery for ladies. Major Score!
They have a few cute plaid pieces from some new brands that they have coming in. This was was from A. N. D. (which stands for A New Day). Adorable. I made this more work appropriate, but whimsical, with a subdued sweater in black and white with a french phrase on it, this was from Target a few years ago and I LOVE it! I finished it off with simple black wedge dress shoes from Payless Shoes. Now – More photos!
Here are the details on these/similar items.
So…whadda’ya think? Are you mad for plaid? Or just mad that this blog post took so long? Let me know in the comments.
