Plaid for Summer

If you ever think of plaid of only a Fall and Winter print, I’m here to disagree. This plaid top is one of the great finds I picked up at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (you can read all my reviews here if you missed it!) And of course there was no way that I was going to have it sitting in my closet for the next month or so without breaking it out. So I put together a plaid for Summer look and wore it open over the cutest cross front tee. When it got even warmer in the afternoon, I wrapped the plaid top around my waist and still loved the touch of print it provided. This look is perfect for Summer or early Fall when it’s still to warm for jeans!

White shorts are a Summer staple. You can see how I styled them with an embroidered tank or an off the shoulder top!

    Such a beautiful, laid back but still stunning outfit! I love the booties and the tee is so pretty…I love the cris-cross detail. I’ve been good and stayed away from the sale…but who knows how much longer that will last with all of the awesome finds I’m seeing from other bloggers! 🙂 Coming over from Rachel’s blog…she linked up with you and thought I’d pop in and say hi! I like the idea of this link-up…I’m just starting to share more fashion related posts…I might have to link up someday!
    xo, Lily

    I love mixing seasonal pieces all year. The black and white color makes this plaid shirt perfect for that! I’m also loving the details on your chosen tee. Great pairing!
