Plaid Skirts & What I Wore Wednesday


I only have a few outfits to show you today, because once again, we are snowed in people!  So far this week we haven’t had school at all, and I haven’t left the house.  But it feels good to have some time at home to clean and organize some things that I would not normally have time to do.  I have been making very good use of my time!

Before we get to my personal outfits, I have a tiny bone to pick.  And it is all about the plaid skirt.  I recently acquired two plaid skirts from Talbots at a thrift store, and I love them both.  I decided to search for plaid skirt outfit ideas on Pinterest, and I cam across this picture of a plaid skirt (Oh, how I wish I had pinned it) and someone had made this comment under the picture – Why would anyone wear a plaid skirt, ever?  Well, that comment irked me, because here I was looking for ways to wear a plaid skirt, and finding all kinds of awesome inspiration for plaid skirts.  So, although I did not pin the picture with the nasty little comment, it sparked an idea in my mind.  And I wanted to give that person, and all of you, 15 reasons, in pictures, why every woman should own a plaid skirt.  So this is for all of you nay sayers out there.  Embrace the plaid, ladies!

I love that skirt, and I love this outfit.

love the skirt. good version of Michael Kors (muuuuch better price)

for someone like me that likes bright colors, I still have to say grey is the coziest most wonderful shade.

Must make this plaid taffeta skirt!!!!  Traditional plaid is given a glamorous makeover. Bias cut with a dramatic fishtail hem, our lined, floor-grazing, 41" skirt in lustrous, copper taffeta is elegance incarnate.

I absolutely adore this outfit, and Mara's entire blog (M loves M). It's definitely worth checking out!

This pairing of a graphic sweater and a knee-length houndstooth skirt is such a fun #FallFashion!

I am loving the plaid skirt right  now?  What do you think of it?  Can you find one of the skirts above that you would like to wear?  I think they are all so cute!  I have pinned even more of them on my Fashionista's Pinterest page and my Outfits I Can Recreate page, if you would like to hop over and check them out. 

And here are three of the outfits I wore over the past week.  This was casual Friday. 



I actually had on dark brown tights with this outfit, and I took them off before I remembered to take a picture.  I just didn’t have the energy to put them back on though.  Ha!  So imagine brown tights!



I liked this outfit when I wore it, but I don’t like it in pictures.  I do, however, like the animal print scarf my mother in law bought me for Christmas. 



Thanks for joining me today, and I hope you found something that inspired you, maybe a plaid skirt?  If you would like to see my other WIWW posts, please click here.
