I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: this season is all about plaid. Now that the weather is getting cooler, I can’t run around the city in just my plaid blazer any longer. Solution: find a new way to incorporate the pattern. And I did just that with these adorable pants!

I must admit, I generally don’t wear pants that aren’t either jeans or leggings (with some exceptions to palazzo pants in the summer). So wearing a trouser-style pant of my own accord is a new feeling! Although I could definitely wear these pants to work, I like that they could be dressed down with a sweater and booties for the weekend.

What I really love about the plaid trend this season is that it’s a nice change from your typical plaid flannel patterns. This pattern has a preppier, 1970s vibe that’s a little classier than buffalo plaid.

If plaid trousers still aren’t your thing, the pattern can be incorporated in so many ways. Try throwing on a plaid check coat, or a fun mini skirt instead! If I have convinced you on the plaid trouser front, I’m loving this option from H&M and this option from Nordstrom.

Thanks for reading! Let me know what you think in the comments, and happy Wednesday!

Three Fall Outfits Under $100

Three Fall Outfits Under $100

Happy first day of November! Since it’s the start of a new month, I decided to create a couple fall outfits for you guys to give you a little wardrobe inspo. I even challenged myself to make them all budget friendly, under $100! Let’s get shopping…

Outfit 1:

I’m not sure about you guys, but the past few years, I’ve been the biggest fan of turtlenecks! I used to think they were for little old ladies, but they can look so chic styled the right way. My favorite way to wear my turtlenecks is with a mini skirt. Spice up the outfit with one of this season’s hottest trends: red boots. Total cost = $87.39

Outfit 2:

If you saw last week’s post (read it here) then you know I love pairing oversized sweater dresses with OTK boots from a cozy, yet put together look. Who doesn’t want to feel like they’re being wrapped in a blanket and call it fashion? Total cost = $99.98

Outfit 3:

Off the shoulder sweaters started appearing last fall, and I can’t get enough! Make this look ultra chic with a pair of leather leggings and some leopard slides. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I’ve been seeing leopard print everywhere! These slides are an easy way to incorporate the print into your wardrobe. Total cost = $91

I don’t usually do posts like these, so let me know what you guys think in the comments below! Also, what did everyone dress up as fore Halloween? Be sure to check out my instagram to see what I was!
