Today's Everyday Fashion: The Plaid Jacket

I am head over heels for this plaid jacket. The best part: it was free. As in, it's been sitting in my closet for close to 6 years and I recently re-discovered it! I'm back in love with plaid this winter so it feels like I'm getting a brand new jacket. I put it with my new boots for a preppy-with-a-hint-of-equestrian look. I'm all about trying new trends, but my favorite outfits have to be more classic ones like these. Will you be wearing a plaid jacket (new or old) this year?

  1. I love when I pull things out of the closet that are that old and I never wore!  :)  The jacket is nice.  I am in absolute love with the middle jacket from Urban Outfitters!  That one would look so cute belted.  Your new boots look great!  I like them much more than your flat cognac ones.  The heel is much nicer on you!  The jacket fits you like it was made for you as well, so definitely get some use out of it this year!  I would love to see you wear it with a cropped rolled ripped boyfriend jean.  I think that look would be great on you with the jacket.  :)

  2. I do that all the time, rediscover something I forgot I had.  I love switching from summer to winter clothes and vice versa during the season change. It's like shopping!   A good equestrian look is always a winning combo.  You look pulled together, preppy and proper :)  Heather

  3. Your always inspire me to go through old things in my closet. Today is the Dayton rediscover and donate to goodwill!

  4. Super cute J! I love plaid :)

  5. Haha. Dont  you just love when youf ind something in your closet that you haven't worn for such a long time, its like brand new :)
    Super nice my dear.

  6. I love that jacket! I really need to invest in something plaid this season. Did you know Hue tights are $20 in Canada? Actually all the tights I have seen recently are around $20. But I still love them.

  7. ooo that jacket is just amazing.   and the boots are perfect.


  8. Congrats for keeping that jacket for 6 years and not tossing it! :) I always trim my closet down when I get new clothes... And then I regret parting with certain items.

  9. I'll always wear plaid! And I'm looking to add a lot more blazers to my life. this is good inspiration!
