Work to Weekend | The Plaid Shirt

I guess Little Miss isn't the only one excited about how her new room is coming together! I loved your comments on her updates yesterday...and such a small world that some of you even have the same art. It's so gorgeous and majestic...even if she tires of it in a few years, I'll gladly hang it elsewhere in the house! #ulteriormotive

Today I'm taking on the plaid shirt...and styling it for both work and weekend.

Hi Sugarplum | Plaid Shirt / Work to Weekend

Most of you know by now that my clothes are required to play double, triple, and even centuple duty (I had to look that one up!). I don't like to divide my wardrobe into defined, exclusive categories, but rather, try to make most of it work for all kinds of occasions and situations...be it work, weekends, or date night. (See my blog sidebar for style inspiration in each category.)



That said, plaid shirts...the darling of Fall clothes...tend to have a casual vibe that lean towards laid-back weekends. But with the right pattern and pairing, you can wear your favorite Fall weekend top right into the work week.

The fitted pencil skirt and fun pearl cluster necklace not only dress up the shirt, but give the outfit a feminine flair. Adding the leopard bag (my new laptop case!) is a fun pattern mix with the plaid.

Remember the Rule of Three? The necklace and bag are the added pieces that make this outfit so chic. And you lucky ducks are in for a treat, because I have codes for both! SUGARPLUM10 gets you 10% off the bag, and SUGARFREESHIP is guess what? Yep, free shipping on the necklace (and everything else in their shop!)!

Now moving to the weekend, a plaid shirt is equally cute with jeans and boots. Add a vest, necklace, and bag for extra layers of style!

The accessories are definitely what make this outfit shine....and yes ma'am, SUGARFREESHIP gives you free shipping on both the tassel necklace and hoop earrings (you may remember the earrings from my last Look for Less post). Still aren't convinced of the necklace's power? Check out how it transformed this basic outfit.

When choosing plaid shirts, I look for color combinations that mix well with my wardrobe, along with a feminine pattern and fit. We're going for Fall-chic, not Lumber-sexual. ;) (Apparently that's a real thing now.)

Do you divide your wardrobe into categories, or mix and match it all?

  1. Cute outfits! Love the home cap!! And that free shipping code is calling my name. I might have to finally get a tassel bracelet :) I'm a stay at home mom but still like my clothes to work for many occasions...home, church, transition pieces to carry basics from season to season. I'm on the lookout for the right plaid pull over. I'll have to check out your links, thanks.

  4. Cassie,
    I would have never thought about a plaid shirt for the work outfit, but it sure works the way you styled it. Plaid is everywhere this season. I just put up a plaid post today but for home decor.

    1. Hmmmm, well that's a bummer! I just updated them all again, and they seem to be working. Unfortunately, it defaults to their home page! #grrrr Just search 'buchanan' and it will show you all the patterns the case is available! Hope this helps...and works for you!! xo

  9. You are seriously too cute! I love all of your outfits and the fact that you always use items over and over again. You show us readers a more realistic wardrobe that more people can obtain. Anyone can be a fashionista spending thousands every month on clothes that you only wear once. Reading your blog (I love your organizational skills, your homes, and your fashion) is so refreshing!

    1. Thanks so much, Annie! I'm thrilled you find inspiration here! I certainly can't afford to go buy new clothes every week, and I love the challenge of creating new looks with what I have!! xoxo

  10. What are your feelings on the jeans- I ordered them in my normal size and they are on the snug side. How much did yours stretch?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They will def stretch...I'd say a half to full size. And it might not feel right, but jeans actually look most flattering when they are quite fitted (as long as there's no camel toe or crack showing!) ;) Give them a few wears and see how you feel...Nordstrom will always take them back! xo

  11. Well, I am back on to your Dolce Vita "Kadie" booties. Every time I see them, I go to the Nordstrom site. And, go away. NO MORE! I.Must.Have.Them. Love your style! Love your home. Gurrrrl…..you've got it!
