Well. It looks (fingers crossed) like today might be the last 100 degree day for a while. And I’m celebrating by wearing plaid. Haha! Actually this shirt is super-lightweight, like I’m wearing nothing, really, so it’s not so bad in this heat. But I’m only just going to the dentist and running errands, so I’ll not be out in the “elements” much during the hottest part of the day.
I honestly only bought this top because it was cheap (around $30 I think? from a now defunct site Isaay.com), which I really don’t recommend. I’ve worn it a few times, but I’ve had it for a couple years, so not a great cost-per-wear compared to many other things in my closet. I almost purged it when I did the big closet clean-out, but decided to keep it as a cover-up, and as general beach/pool wear.
It’s not a bad top at all; I have a gray flannel version that I absolutely wear much more often, and I got it for around $100. But if there’s another thing I know for sure about my shopping habits, it’s that whenever I buy things JUST BECAUSE OF THE PRICE, they tend to be the first items to go because I’ve never worn them, they’ve not held up well, or they’re just not “me.” I cannot even count the number of things that fit into this box.
More on this in my Minimal Closet post tomorrow…
In the mean time, it seems like plaid is a “thing” this fall, of course, so here are some of my favorite plaids out there right now. I won’t be partaking, since I’m really trying to stay away from stripes and patterns – for my wardrobe anyway – but I do love a good plaid on others…
What about you, do you wear plaid? How do you wear it? What’s your favorite plaid piece?
