How to Wear Fall’s “It” Plaid for Evening

Get Wardrobe Staples That Can Do BOTH

After your early 20’s there comes a time where your wardrobe can’t be two polar opposites. If you are like me you spend 60% of your week in an office. Which means blazers, slacks, and cardigans because let’s be honest it’s cold at your desk.

I also have an active social life but the days of buying clothes designated for the club are behind me. You may also stop buying “club clothes” when you start to dive deep into developing your own personal style. When I buy a piece it needs to have diversity. I need to be able to go from the office to cocktails, to brunch. Don’t get me wrong I still have a freak-um dress but my wardrobe is now a solid 80/20.

Plaid is Everywhere for Fall

As a girl who grew up watching the movie Clueless I love a good plaid. It can be played with in so many different ways. I especially love this plaid which is menswear-inspired. I love stealing elements from the guys and pairing them with feminine pieces like the slip dress that I am wearing. For a more casual look, I would pair this with a band t-shirt and distressed jeans. I love that you can make this plaid go from work to play by just changing it p a bit. (Notice how I gave this blazer a sexy vibe with this slip dress and the heels)

What are your thoughts on plaid for fall? Is it a yes or a no for you?

3 Chic & Easy Thanksgiving Looks

Ah, Thanksgiving the food, the family, that comment your extended family member didn’t have to say to your face. Who’s not excited? Whether you are hosting or being hosted this Thanksgiving you want to look good (can’t let your sister in law catch you slipping) but still be very comfortable. I’ve got three looks that are chic and easy to wear so whether you will be in the kitchen or in the den watching football you’ll be cute and comfy.

Leather Lumberjack

Do families still dress up for dinner like in Lifetime Thanksgiving movie specials? If your family still dresses up please invite me over next Thanksgiving. I love the idea of playing with juxtaposition and contrasting a dressier element with a casual element. The shape of this skirt is dressed up but since it’s faux leather you can add the casual comfortable element of a plaid flannel. Just be sure to bring it all together with your boots and tights of your choice.

Cool Sweater, Cooler Shoulder

If there is a cold shoulder detail on a dress or top within a five-mile radius I’ve seen it and considered buying.  It’s just enough skin to be sexy but it’s not overly revealing. This detail is perfect for anyone who’s priority is being comfortable but you still want to look chic and on trend. Just throw on your favorite skinny jeans and some booties and you’re ready to go.

Two in One

I love a wrap poncho it makes everything ok and I found this one at Costco! Wraps and blanket scarfs are so versatile it transforms jeans and a t-shirt into an ensemble. You’ll walk in greet everyone and tell everyone, “Happy Thanksgiving”, then take off your wrap and relax. I paired my poncho over a black long sleeve body suit, flare legged jeans, and belted it to give the look more polish look. Added bonus it anchors your wrap in the event a gust of wind blows when you are carrying covered dishes into your grandmother’s house. This plaid poncho is reversible so if you’re not feeling a big print you can wear it on the solid side for a more minimalist look.

Fall Style with Cincinnati Premium Outlets

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Who doesn’t love a day at the outlet mall? Knowing that you are bound to get an incredible deal on designer clothes is enough to make any woman overjoyed. When Cincinnati Premium Outlets invited the ladies of Thread and I out for an exclusive blogger event, I was thrilled.

Before You  Shop

It’s easy to get overwhelmed when outlet shopping because you have so many options. Before I go shopping at an outlet mall to update my seasonal wardrobe I put away all of my summer clothes . Then I consider the looks that I desire to recreate and get rid of items that have seen their fair share of wear and tear. I knew that I needed a new pair of black booties and these booties from Nine West are everything.

More Than A Dress

I also knew that I needed dresses that I can wear now and in the colder months that will pair well with boots. You won’t believe where I scored this amazing dress that fits so well! Dress Barn they have updated their line and have greatly improved the options in the plus. I would recommend sizing up in this dress if you are on the busty side or want extra arm room. Do they give noble peace prizes for shopping? Drop your preconceived notions and give Dress Barn a second chance.

Cranberry Spice Latte

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Fall is in full effect and I’m not a big pumpkin spice fan. Don’t get me wrong pumpkin spice lattes are tasty but I can take them or leave them. What I am here for this fall is adding cranberry and burgundy items back into my wardrobe. I totally plan on doing a totally monochromatic look and matching my lip color with my outfit.

When I saw this top from Simplybe I had to have it because it looked like the perfect sophisticated alternative to a fall sweater. I can layer it under a jacket or wear it alone. I think it’s sexy enough to wear on a date when it’s cold outside or dress it down on the weekend with denim.
