FALL ESSENTIAL: THE PLAID BLAZER

Menswear inspired pieces have always been a favorite of mine and this season there’s a print that has resurfaced…plaid.

Around NYC and my Instagram feed the plaid blazer began taking over which in turn led me to looking for the perfect one. I normally don’t jump to plaid prints, but something about this in a blazer silhouette felt very wearable and easy to add to my usual casual looks.

I found this gem at a store that is very dear to my heart — Target. Can you believe it?!

I was home visiting my parents in Indiana and had to make a trip to my classic suburban Target because in the city I don’t have the luxury where the Target inventory is fully stocked and organized. Any New Yorkers feel my pain out there?

But there it was, the perfect plaid blazer and guess how much it cost?? $34.99!!! *crowd roars*

It was a no brainer. I bought it and about 100 other things I don’t need in a matter of minutes because that’s what happens at Target…you get overwhelmed, excited and all of sudden you need everything.

When I got back to NYC, I wanted to style this blazer in a very easy way. I paired it with a fun graphic tee by American Eagle. I love the bold red letters and ‘Femme Vibes’ is always a good message.

Next, I’ve been obsessed with the Levi’s Wedgie fit jean. They have just the right hint of stretch and a thick vintage like denim feel without having to go through billions of thrift stores to find the best fit — ideal!

As for accessories, I kept it simple with my Gucci cross-body, minimal black heel by Steve Madden (comfy too–important) and my go-to round Ray-Bans.

Are you ready to add a little plaid to your closet? I say yes.

Wardrobe Must-Have: The Aerie City Sweatshirt

If I could wear one thing everyday it would be the Aerie City Sweatshirt. I’ve never worn anything more comfortable that is acceptable outside the house. Lol

It’s the perfect item to throw on when you’re heading out for weekend errands or having a chill night on the couch. I love pairing mine with my Aerie Move leggings — also amazingly comfortable.

My favorite part about this sweatshirt is how soft it is. You have to feel it! I also love the oversized fit. I have three colors because I couldn’t just pick one…and at that price, why not?!

 


I styled this with my Aerie colorblock move legging. I love the rise on these and love the mix of white and grey.

Accessorized with my weekend staples — a Yankee hat (queue Jay Z ‘Empire State of Mind’) , my black Vans and Gucci crossbody I’m ready for a day on the go and effortless as ever.

Get yours, here. Thank me later. 🙂
