Buffalo plaid: now and later

Sunnies: Vince Camuto (option) | Necklace: Express (option) | Button Up: Express | Tee: Old Navy | Bracelets: random bangles from my collection | Leggings: Express | Heels: MICHAEL Michael Kors (option)

You guys sick of seeing this tee shirt yet? Well, clearly, I'm not. I told you on Monday about how I hadn't been into an Old Navy in forever. This was another thing I picked up in addition to Monday's dress. It's making its rounds on Instagram, but I couldn't resist it. I bought a couple of other graphic tees from Old Navy last year (seen here and here) that I wear a ton, so I knew I would leave the store with a new one last weekend. And here it is!

I figured I'd camouflage the saying tee a bit with this buffalo plaid top. When I walked out of my closet room, the husband abruptly said, "WHOA! Lumberjack!" Uh, ok, I'll take that as a compliment? I love this top, and I'm glad I bought it. It's worth all the country bumpkin comments I'm sure to get! Regardless - I am looking forward to styling it again and again and again.

Wearing this button up, I did get taken back to my younger years when I wore my flannels, except back then I wore Doc Martens and not heels. I definitely prefer the heels - you guys know I love pairing casual with dressy. Edgy with girly. Basically opposites with opposites. I see this shirt being one of my go to tops to throw on in a pinch. So, I apologize in advance for how many times you will be seeing this. And that means you should just go ahead and buy it now because eventually it will grow on you, and I would hate for it to be sold out by the time you realize you've always loved it! You're welcome.

  4. Ah, I love this shirt so much, but Matt's comments are the exact reason I am hesitant to get it. I have a red buffalo plaid hat that garnered the same "lumberjack" comments last year and I'm not sure I can deal with the association! Anyway, thanks for the voting reminder! I hate doing forms on my phone so I just now voted on my computer this morning. :)

    1. If I had quarter for every time I got a comment like that- I would seriously be able to retire! Even when I wear gingham- I get comments. And looks. But I still like these things so call me a glutton for punishment! I'm also afraid that buffalo plaid is gonna blow up like nobody's business this year so I wanted to wear it before I was Internet sick of it!! :)

  6. Once again, adore all of your ideas for this top! I love the yin/yang of the glitter skirt! And I will get my hands on a knock-off of that vest this year (just can't afford the real deal)!! :-)

    1. I hope you can find a good dupe and/or I hope this goes on major sale for you! I have a feeling I will wear it a ton!
      I love plaid and a sequin skirt. Casual + dressy is the best combo!
