Plaid is synonymous with fall. This customary autumnal pattern is everywhere during this time of year and the runway is no exception. Designers such as Chloe, Michael Kors, Coach, Altuzarra, Marc Jacobs, Rodarte, Etro all featured this well beloved pattern in their Fall 2015 RTW runway collections. This beautiful plaid scarf was an impulse buy while shopping in Chicago last winter. I needed an oversize scarf to wrap around my neck on that chilly, windy night. It has become one of my go-to cold weather accessories. I wanted to showcase my scarf without having to wrap it around my neck. Styling it over my shoulder draws your attention immediately to the scarf, and using a neutral belt to emphasize my waist adds structure to the outfit.
On another note, I want to say a big thank you to my better half and my awesome photographer, John. He is my biggest cheerleader who always encourages and supports me in all of my endeavors. He often tells me, “that a nice outfit, we should take a picture and post it on your blog.” Besides being an optometrist as well, he also draws and plays the piano beautifully. He drew the cover art for Park Bench Stories, a collection of short stories by Kathleen Venezia (aka his mom) and he just completed the cover art for her soon to be released second book of short stories.
Thanks for reading!
