Black and Blue Plaid

_MG_9718It’s finally gotten cool enough here in Wisconsin to begin wearing long sleeves. I love spring and summer but there is something about the fall months that’s just wonderful.

This outfit was born out of a rushed search for clothes one Sunday morning last winter. I had worn the blouse a few times with a vest but wasn’t crazy about the ensemble.

When I pulled the top out of my closet, I saw the black ribbon lying on my dresser. It dresses the top up perfectly and defines the waist nicely.

Trying to get some post ideas, are any of you interested in a hair tutorial for this style?

      Abbey,
      No, my ears aren’t (and never have been) pierced. Amy, my sister-in-law, found a pair of cute clip-on earrings at Kohls. πŸ™‚ Now, I’m searching for more styles.

      The hair styles over at the Freckled Fox have been quite the source of inspiration for me, too, lately.
