America's Most Stylish Blogger Week #4: The plaid shirt







Although plaid shirts are enjoying a wave of popularity right now, I rarely wear them, mainly because I’ve yet to find one that I absolutely love. That was before Bluefly.com shipped each of us this Priorities plaid shirt in my favorite color—red! This was no ordinary plaid shirt. In soft, almost flannel-like cotton, the shirt features girly ruffle details and a very distinct pattern. It was plaid love at first sight!

Immediately, the shirt evoked to me images of the English countryside (the truth is I’ve only ever visited London, but hey, that’s what imaginations are for!). I wanted to do a modern take on that look, so I buttoned up a brown tweed vest over the shirt and pulled on a pair of dark jeans, then added a belt and boots to tie it all together. The outfit is a classic, comfortable look, but still very fresh and contemporary. I can easily see myself wearing this indoors, curled up by the fireplace on a cold day, or out on a Saturday afternoon Christmas shopping with the girls. And maybe—just maybe!—one day I’ll really have a chance to wear it in the English countryside!

Please visit StyleList.com and Bluefly.com where you can find out more and watch this week's guest judge weigh in on our outfits! And to my all old and new readers, thank you so much for supporting me in America’s Most Stylish Blogger and for all the kind comments! I will make sure to respond to each and every single one!
