plaid perfection

plaid perfection

The ever-talented Megan Nielson was so sweet to send me one her beautiful pieces from her collection. It's such a perfect piece for fall! When I tried it on, the preppy sophistication of Rag & Bone's fall collection immediately came to mind. I can't wait for it to get cold so I can rock this with even more layers! Check out Megan's shop and her blog to see all of her creative ideas!

  15. The skirt is fabulous. I also love that you buttoned the blouse up to the top. Nice masculine touch. The detail of the bolo tie around the neckline is just icing on the cake!

  17. Love it. Makes me want to purchase several new pencils and sharpen them the old fashioned way (ie. regular sharpenor, not electric, certainly didn't mean with my teeth).

    But yes, you are lovely. This is a very cute look. Yet sophisticated too. And the shoes!!!

  31. This look reminds me of my sister when she was still in school. She wore a plaid skirt for over a decade! My parents somehow thought it would be a good idea to ship me to public school so I never knew how I'd look in one. Thanks for sharing the back-to-school inspiration!
