Happy Friday, all. Is fall in full swing where you are? Our weather shifted so swiftly from summer sun to autumn rain and chill that it took me by surprise. Suddenly it seems that the closet needs a bit of stocking. Perhaps it's all the bagpipers we heard in Scotland or the million tartan shops we passed, but plaid is looking good this season. It was all over Fall 2014 runways and the street style set has been sporting it all month at the shows in New York, Milan, London and Paris.

There's plenty of plaids to pick from...

But unless you're a character from the Outlander series... Or Cher Horowitz...
Too much plaid is tough to pull off. Better to keep it simple like the Duchess of Cambridge:
Pair a statement dress with simple but chic black accessories. A wee pop of color on the ears or lips is pretty.

Any tartan in your closet this season or are you leaving it to the pipers?
Have a lovely weekend - whether you are cozied up in plaid flannel pajamas or dressed up to paint the town, hope it's wonderful! XO
