Hello! My goodness does it feel good to be back on the blog! I am so sorry for the hiatus in blogging but I’ve been MIA planning and executing my work’s largest fundraiser of the year! With almost 900 people in attendance, we were able to raise over $50,000 for our animal shelter and I’ve got to say, I am still floored by the tremendous amount of support our community give us each year. This was a landmark year as we doubled what we’ve raised in the past. That’s HUGE!! So now that life has finally resumed normal levels of busyness, I’m finally able to get back to blogging.
And let me tell you, we’ve got a lot of catching up to do!
But we’ll save that for another day. Today I want to talk about this gorgeous top! I know that plaid is typically best worn in the fall but hey, this is the south after all and plaid is like our flag! I cannot stop wearing this plaid top! I love the flared sleeves and the embroidery along the front and back of the shirt. Which, I don’t know if you’ve been watching the style report for Spring/Summer 2017, but embroidery is making a strong comeback, which I’m all for!
Now I’m not much for Southern fashion, shocking right as I live in the capital for Southern fashion, but plaid has always been one of my favorite patterns to wear. It’s so incredibly versatile and it doesn’t always have to be worn in a preppy fashion. You can make it look grunge, high fashion, street style wear, or if Southern fashion is your thing, that deck it out which a bold-ass necklace! For me, I personally like to wear a bold patterned top like this one with simple accessories.
I’m so excited to show you all the new things we’ve been working on since our hiatus. It feels so good to be back to blogging and I know I’ve been talking TONS about the new projects but they’re starting to come to fruition! Jennifer, my amazing photographer, and I have some fun new plans that include jetting off to some new locations this year. If you’re a blogger in another city that’d love to meet up, let me know! I’ve also got some fun personal travel plans this year and I need some recommendations for Los Angeles and Baltimore.
What’s your favorite pattern to wear? Also, don’t freak but this plaid shirt is only $15 right now and is on MAJOR sale! Trust me, it’s one of my must wear tops for the spring and you’re bound to get tons of compliments wit this shirt!
