fashion files // the plaid shirt

I grew up in Oklahoma. Plaid shirts are everywhere! But I've never thought of them as stylish until I saw them popping up all over street style photos. These ladies know how to make this traditionally country bumpkin shirt look chic! This pattern even inspired my election day outfit: blue & red plaid shirt, big red jewels, navy cardigan and gold glitter shoes (Follow me on Instagram to see! @maebad)

 How are you styling the plaid shirt? x

oh and,
today's the last day to enter my Julep Maven giveaway!

Ok, finally I must say two things about the election which I never do but I feel passionate about these two points. First, I was so disappointed to see all the hate and negativity on FB and Twitter last night. It was actually very surprising to see adults behaving that way! I said this on Twitter too and I truly believe that red or blue we must respect our country and our leader because we're all one human family! And second, Michelle Obama's outfit....please discuss!
That's all ;)

If you're looking to add a plaid shirt to your wardrobe, here are a few of my budget-friendly faves:

The other day I borrowed my nephew's plaid shirt and wore it to the mall. I was surprised how many heads turned and I wondered if it was because the the bright red color or the simple knot I put on the hip.
I like your stylish blog and is following you from the hop.
I would love for you to follow back.

One of my favorite outfits in the fall is my plaid shirt, skinny jeans and boots!

I've always been a huge proponent of plaid (maybe it's the Oregon girl in me?). But I think it can be so effortlessly cool when done right. Great post Mae :)
And btw - totally agree about the election negativity. I decided to shut of FB and Twitter completely yesterday because it was just so bad.

Hope you're doing well!!
