Stating the Obvious: Plaid for Fall is a Thing.

Fall weather must flick a switch inside me or something. When the temperature drops to roughly 50 degrees, I seem to turn off my “chic city girl mode” and turn on the “cozy Midwesterner mode”. Out with the structured ensembles and in with lots and lots of flannel. Maybe because it’s a little harder to get up on a chilly morning and flannel is the closest thing to wearing actual pajamas in public, or maybe fall to me will just forever feel like plaids, boots, furry hoods, and hot chocolate…

I know I’m not the first blogger to rave about plaid for this season. And there is no shortage of shirts and scarves out there for you to get your fix! I personally fell in love with the rich greens, reds and blues in this particular H&M top. The color scheme perfectly mimicked the palette of fall and its rapidly changing leaves. Plus, it had elbow patches. SOLD!

Flannels and plaids are my guilty pleasure in the colder months. Another case in point – here. What’s yours?
