Inspirational Monday: Plaid and Florals

This fall is all about the punk rocker vibe. I'm a sucker for anything floral and everything plaid. I love a look that I can pull together without having to buy something new. I gave this look a try by mixing together my favorite plaid top and one of my favorite floral skirts. What I learned about mixing these prints myself is that one of the patterns needs to be darker then the other to balance each other out. The Zara dress (pictured above) works since the florals are bolder then the floral print. While the Saint Laurent look has a darker undertone but the blue of the flowers stand out. I stuff with my smaller print black and white flower skirt to pair with my plaid shirt, so that the look wasn't overwhelming especially for a day time look.

  3. Love, love this on you Heather! It's so 90's in the best possible way! I really want to get some plaid pieces, but I can't find any suitably dark & faded ones, they're all really bright! I'd love the print of that zara skirt but as a shirt...
