Wednesday Wants

When I first heard that "plaid!" is hot again, I had to in the North East, we tend to already have a lot of plaid in our closets. Between my husband's favorite ski weekend flannels to my daughters' school uniform kilts, we're already surrounded in plaid prints over here.  But, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that this is the exact kind of trend I can get behind.  While you won't catch me in a crop top or overalls, the more subtle trends like plaid (or leopard for that matter) are far easier for someone a bit older like me to distill, someone that wants to look current and of the moment and yet still classic at the same time.  And, sure enough, once I started to look around, I found a lot of stylish plaid options out there... like these plaid Theory pants, (which I've literally just ordered) these cute smoking slippers from Joie, a fun plaid coat from Madewell and this really cute tunic.  And it seems, as these things often happen, that every store I look in has some really cute plaid pieces out now.  So, I can't resist...are you mad for plaid too?

A few other plaid items that I've got my eye on:


  1. I adore plaid and have always!! It's a classic for me....I wear it every fall. I love that first image....that sweater!! I love the pants you ordered! You will wear them so much!!

  2. Sue I wore so much plaid in my school uniforms; I don't know if I want to go there again!
    It looks great in some of these styles though!

  3. I rocked the plaid minies from the 90's and the thigh highs. Remember the whole clueless thing? I'm opening up to it more and more.

  4. I always loved plaid!!! Have to laugh that a couple of years ago, a friend and I threw a "mad for plaid" party and I couldn't find a single thing plaid to wear to the luncheon. This is the year to have that party...I'd have my pick!

    Hope you're having a great day!
