Mad for Plaid

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of plaid is a school uniform, so as a general rule, I tend to stay away from it. My first plaid purchase was a winter coat to keep this southern girl warm during my first winter in Indiana. My second plaid purchase was more spur-of-the-moment when we went to Chicago for Thanksgiving. Regretfully, I forgot to bring a scarf with me while shopping at an outside mall. I was desperately in need of something to keep me warm and this large oversized plaid scarf was exactly what I needed. Now, may I present to you my third plaid purchase, this chic wool blazer dress by MaryLing pictured below. I absolutely love this dress. It’s modern, it’s feminine and mostly importantly, it kept me warm. I added black long sleeve top and black booties to complete my look. Thanks for reading.

For Pleat’s Sake!

Hello everyone,

There’s nothing like a dress that moves like a dream. This stunning number is so flattering. It hugs you in all the right places, and the bottom half flares out into beautiful pleats. The color block on this dress is unlike anything I’ve seen. The floral half adds enough drama to elevate the design of the dress without overwhelming the black half. I accessorized with a light blue Tea Rose crossbody and simple black block heel sandals.

Now, let’s talk about this amazing park. I stumbled upon it on a friend’s Facebook page and I was shocked that this gem was less than 30 minutes away from me. It’s called Holliday Park and it is located on the north side of Indianapolis. We will definitely be going back to visit.
