Lookbook: AEOSTYLE - Mad Plaid Hatter

12/05/2014

You know what the fall means? Everyone is hella mad for plaid. I only started getting into plaids, tartans and flannels the past year or so when I found options that didn't make me feel like a lumberjack. Brands like American Eagle Outfitters are designing chic patterns that are actually stylish and wearable. That's why I was more than happy to take part in the #AEOSTYLE Challenge all about plaid.

My plaid look was inspired by scarves, oddly enough. I've seen a lot of flowy, plaid scarves while perusing Instagram, but no matter how much I scrolled my feed, a plaid blanket scarf never once magically appeared in my closet (I had to buy one myself). So getting my hands on this casual AEO plaid boyfriend shirt was the plaid reality I was waiting for--and in need of. This teal one is a soft, silky cotton blend that goes perfectly with the rest of my ensemble. I can't tell you how long I've waited to add a pair of ripped skinny black jeans to my wardrobe. And these super stretch jeggings take the cake! Since the weather is finally getting colder, nothing completes this look more than knee high boots. My shoe game for the year is now officially on fleek (stop trying to make on fleek happen, Cheryl!). These mixed knee high boots are unique and were perfect for my Thanksgiving weekend spent in rainy, yet beautiful Napa.

I wore this ensemble three ways: with the plaid boyfriend shirt; with the plaid shirt under my new TOMS for Target crewneck sweater; and with the plaid shirt tied around the waist of my AEO jeggings.
