One of my favorite things about fall and winter, especially the Holiday season is the ability to wear tartan, a fancy word for plaid as my Fancy Nancy obsessed niece would say, with abandon. Somehow it doesn't look right in the summer. Unless of course it's madras. But I'm talking about full on tartan. I personally am a black watch plaid fan. My family's barn is called Blackwatch Hill and all the horse blankets are blackwatch plaid with red monograms. I have to credit the lovely blogger over at Suburban Charm who has a great post about plaid today too which inspired me and even has a Mad About Plaid board on Pintrest.
This is a collection of totally cute plaid things I would love to own. My current house is more southwestern inspired but one day I am going to have one that embraces this look.
Isn't this Ralph Lauren dress cute? My daughter had one just like this when she was smaller
Now that she is a little older my daughter love kilts and knee socks. She is very tall and long waisted and hate tights because they don't stay up.
Of course the J Crew tartan shirt is on the list. I wear this shirt at least once a week in the later fall and winter!
The plaid blazer is also a winter staple. Mine is actually a Brooks Brothers boys blazer in a size 16.
No one does plaid interiors like Ralph Lauren. I love this look. Makes me think of hot chocolate and a roaring fine!
