Today I want to share with you a beautiful look by the lake featuring the classic plaid. My love affair with plaid has been long and deep - it has been my go-to print for as long as I can remember. From 90's grunge Nirvana to a casual weekend staple, plaid is "the ultimate style chameleon" (1). Not confined to any single group, aesthetic, or era, plaid comes in endless varieties that make this style timeless yet trendy. A print that keeps us coming back for more each season (2), it reinvents itself time and time again to earn a place deep in our hearts.
Breathing in the fresh cold Arctic air and viewing the lushness of the tall standing Douglas fir, I was inspired to play with my surreal surroundings. Plaid is also the perfect outdoor apparel because it evokes a sense of cabin life, homeliness and tranquility that nature brings. I love the fact that this scarf is double-sided because it can create so many different looks depending on which side you use and how you wear it. Here, I chose to wear the plaid side and draped it effortlessly over my shoulders like a blanket for an easy weekend look. Since the scarf is so full of character, I added my trusted chambray shirt and leather midi skirt to pay homage to the browns and blues that I saw around me.
Given that the outfit is so bold and colourful, ample amount of accessorizing is not needed. With that said, I selected these amazing tasseled statement earrings that reflected the blue of the chambray and the rustic charm of the plaid. Full of personality, these earrings are plenty but you can also add a delicate necklace for more interest. To complete this nature inspired weekend look, I added tan suede ankle booties to match the faux leather midi skirt and give balance to this bold and charming look.
Whether you are meeting up with friends for a quick coffee break or girls talk over brunch, plaid is the ultimate weekend apparel! So this coming weekend I hope you can incorporate plaid into your wardrobe. Until next time stay glam and chic - Xoxo-Spirit
