Buffalo Plaid Cardigan + Link Up


A bold and graphic red buffalo plaid sweater.


We have a tradition of going to Hilton Head every year for Thanksgiving with my husband's family.  Some years my parents come too and I'm trying to get my Katey and her family to join us next year!!  (Not sure if they will, the drive from Ohio is a long one)  We rent a big house on the beach that we all can fit into.  It's always the best time hanging together.  

The beach this time of year is perfect, the weather is usually mild (not like the sweltering heat of the summer) and the island is much quieter than the peak summer time.  We ride bikes, walk and play on the beach, the last 2 years we've divided into two teams and did a scavenger hunt, and eat!  This year I tried my first oyster.  We grilled them and by time it was doctored up with the saltine cracker, cocktail sauce and horseradish you could hardly taste it! :)

Another activity that has become a tradition is going ghost crab hunting after the sun sets.  It's so much fun walking the beach in the dark with our little flashlights looking for the tiny crabs.  They are white so they blend in with the sand.  You can only find them by their movement.  Once we find them, the kids love picking them up and holding them in their hands!!!  Next time you go to the beach you should try this, it's so fun!!


This outfit is one I wore to dinner one evening.  I love the large red buffalo plaid.  It's one of my favorite prints and can be dressed up for a festive holiday look!  Adding leather leggings, black heels and some statement jewelry would be beautiful.  This sweater also comes in 2 other colors.

  15. I love that you kept the outfit classic and basic with white and black. The plaid really stands out with the red/black checked. Looks great!
