Outfit Of The Day: Feeling Plaid

In Fashion, Outfit of the day, Uncategorized by Testing Purpose37 Comments

I don’t know about you guys but this month has flown by so fast. i can’t believe Christmas is just two days away and I still have a couple of gifts to pick up. Yikes!
I meant to post this OOTD a week ago but between getting ready for the upcoming holidays and tending to an ill family member, time seems to have gotten away from me.
Thus, leaving me with very little time to spend in the blogosphere. I guess it’s just that time of year.
Now on to the fun stuff!
Have you ever seen a trend that you like but think it’s just not you? Well, that was me with plaid…Until now. I know this trend has been going strong for a while and I love it on other people but for some reason I’ve stayed away from it. I think mainly because I couldn’t find a style that I felt worked for me. However, when I spotted this jacket, it was lust at first sight!!!
I knew it was coming home with me before I even had a chance to try it on. It was made for me 😉 I love the cut, fit and colour but I do wish it was a bit warmer for our climate 🙁 but isn’t that what layers are for? lol!! What we won’t do for fashion!
And just in case you were wondering, we are into our third week of this so called deep freeze…sigh

  1. Hi love! You followed me on Twitter and I just got to check your blog, and I must say… wow. You carry outfits so well and I envy your really long legs! I wish my legs were as long and slim as yours. 😆 Keep up the great posts and the exquisite fashion sense!

    Followed you, BTW. Hope you can follow me back at Erika’s Secret Closet! x

  2. Ikr, December went by veryyyy quickly! I’m glad you gave plaid a try, it looks great on you. Fab look, Jackie.

    Happy New Year! xo

  3. This is a perfect Christmas time look with the red plaid. I too have resisted this trend but I’m looking for a great plaid layering piece.

  4. I’m glad you gave this trend a chance because I love it and it looks great on you! You are right though, I think you had just not found a piece you loved until this jacket but I can see why you fell for the jacket…so cute! Love the styling with all black letting the plaid be the focal piece. Stay warm & have a happy new year!!

  5. FABULOUS coat and pants combo! That bold red flannel looks amazing on you — especially set against the snow! I can see why you wanted it to come home with you. 🙂

    ps- Happy New Year!
