How to Wear Plaid and Checkered Patterns

This week my brother Matt was babysitting the cutest puppy every named Charlie, and I got babysit too (aka professional dog-petter). We had way too much fun playing with him <3 We found this cool mural wall when we were taking Charlie on a walk, and it complimented my two piece so it was the perfect photo op! I feel like I’ve been living in orange and yellow this summer, and I’m not mad about it, especially since they’re such happy colors :) I’m also in the fall mindset, hence the red plaid dress. I started out with flannels last week, and now I’m fully emerging into fall patterns.

I loveeeeee fall patterns, like plaid and checkers, and how they’re being used this season. I’ve been layering the same type of pieces lately, like stripes on stripes, so I’m really excited to layer plaid this fall. I feel like I got so many plaid/checkered blazers this year, so I can definitely find different shades and sizes of plaid to pair underneath. You can add a statement bag or fanny pack to a plaid look, for a nice contrast and almost makes the pattern more subtle. I’m also going to take all my favorite two piece suits I wore last season, and experiment with fall patterns underneath.
