Plaid? For fall? Groundbreaking.

Wavy haircut, long bob, plaid shirt outfit
Shirt: Target (similar)  |  Mint Sweater Vest: Thrifted (you can try searching on etsy or eBay)  |  Jeans: Urban Outfitters  |  Bag: Fossil  |  Shoes: similar

I go to the weirdest places. I know. I told you guys, I try to seek out unique places to take outfit photos. When a group of friends told me they were going to the Michigan Renaissance Festival, I was all about it. See, the "Ren Fest" is the ultimate people watching experience. And I LOVE me some people watching. Some people enjoy bird watching, for me, people are where it's at. I can't get enough of it. The exposed butt cracks, the horribly unattractive cleavage, the wild outfits, the drunken antics... the list goes on and on. What I have discovered about people, is that they will cash in on any chance they get to wear a costume. However, since I do not own a wench, pirate, or fairy costume, I decided on plaid.

I know plaid seems like the obvious choice for a fall day, but I figured I was sort of putting my own spin on it by adding the mint sweater vest thing. This thrifted piece has been sitting in my pile closet since spring, but I just never really had the "right" outfit for it. I threw it on over this plaid shirt from Target and everything just clicked.

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I finally got my hair chopped. I was in desperate need of a cut and color for months. I finally just got fed up with feeling like my head weighed 30 lbs and not being able to do anything with the bushy, shapeless mess on top of it. I was nervous about getting so much cut off, but now I couldn't be happier with it. I just went for a lightly layered long bob type of thing that's ever so slightly longer in the front. It looks fine straight, but wavy (as pictured) is where this cut really shines. It's just so bouncy and shiny, and so much easier/quicker to style! I really love it :)

What do you think of this plaid look? What's your favorite way to wear the trend?

P.S. I had to add this last photo, because it cracked me up how it looks like this woman walking by is morphing out of me with a weird, dinosaur claw hand, and a really goofy look on her face! I would feel bad about that, but come on, lady. I'm obviously trying to take a picture. Don't go ruining it with your claw hand and your "I'm trying to lick food out of my teeth" face.

    And as for the plaid thing, I'm loving the idea of a plaid shirt with a skater style skirt and maybe a cute bow tie? Just a thought!
