Red Bell Sleeve Plaid

As Fall grows closer, I'm finding ways to wear pieces that are Fall inspired, while not over-heating.  This plaid shirt (currently on sale!) is not flannel so it's light enough to start wearing now.  
Have you noticed all the tie bell-sleeve tops appearing everywhere?  Such a fun detail!


I love mixing a darker plaid like this with white jeans.  It lightens the look and really helps the plaid to pop.  Don't be afraid to mix black and brown.  Black shoes sometimes seem to harsh for me but I absolutely adore the look of light brown booties with this red/black plaid.  It's a nice contrast.

It's fitting that I would be posting this red plaid top today.  It reminds me of Ohio State colors and today is our opening game.  The Ohio State Buckeye games are big around here!!  We used to go down to the games, tailgate, and enjoy the stadium excitement.  Now - we usually watch at home or with friends.  Our son loves to go to football games and usually goes with my husband to a couple games each season.  He hasn't been able to entice our 12 year old daughter into going yet.

What's your favorite college team to root for!?

Speaking of Fall items - I made chili last night for dinner.  My husband made fun of me since it's still just in the upper 70s right now.  But, hey - I'm feeling all things Fall lately.

  1. Express always has the best tops! I've warned everyone at my house that September 1st is all Fall around here! Too bad we're having a heat wave and it's going to almost 110 this weekend 😩

  2. Such a cute plaid shirt! I love how you paired with white jeans.
