MY STYLE: Playful Plaid

And just like that, it's 60 degrees, and it looks like we didn't have a baby blizzard! So, with this randomly warm weather (I mean it's still chilly in the AM) I decided to do this mix-match look for a meeting I had to attend. Each of these items was already in my closet, but I didn't think to pull them all together and come up with a look this cute.





This top is from the men's section of Wal-Mart, I love it the most! I wear it with jeans, leggings, and everything! Plus, it was only like $10, why not purchase a warm, flannel, shirt that can be used 101 ways. The rest is stuff you've seen before: black tights from Avenue, another FAVE bodycon skirt & belt from Torrid, purse from H&M, and these simple black booties from Jessica London. Sometimes, you have to shop your closet to give yourself a cute new look.


Also, lets talk about working with your shape. I'm way smaller at the top than I am at the bottom. To wear this shirt without a belt (for this look) would make me look frumpy. The shirt needs some shape, and the presentation looks more feminine (because it's a men's shirt). When you are creating a look, don't be afraid to add some flair or at least play around with it.

Have you ever created a totally new look with an old item in your closet? Let me know in the comments section.
