What I Wore: Mad for Plaid


It's occurred to me that I seem to have acquired quite a lot of plaid clothing lately. I went from not owning a stitch of plaid since I was in high school, maybe even middle school to a whole closet full! Okay that's a bit of an exaggeration. Jedidiah still has waaay more plaid than me, but still, I have a lot. Fleet Collection had an amazing sale over the holidays and they just kept having them so eventually I ended up owning their whole collection of these fabulous skirts for a whopping $13-24 depending on the coupons I had. I have to admit if they had more colors I'd own them all! I really need to work on my year goal of making my own skirts cause I'm confident I can make this style quite easily (I think). Then I could make them custom to my height. I love a more modest length but I prefer my skirts more at my knees or just above vs below.

Most of these picts were taken in front of the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. And no, I'm far to chicken to stay the night there because while my hubby would be fast asleep sawing logs, I'd be wide awake letting my imagination get the best of me. I have been inside the hotel several times though. Awesome place. Creepy feeling but awesome. Anyhoo, I love sneaking away to Estes when ever we can. This is such a beautiful area. If you get a chance to visit Estes Park, definitely visit summer - October at the latest. The best time to visit is in August/September when the elk are out but you can still travel through the whole Rocky Mountain National Park.

Sadly, most of the photos I took of our very short trip did not turn out very well. It happens sometimes. I'm still a photographer in the making.  So I'll keep this post short. I have more local travel adventures and posts to come very soon!

  1. Cuteeee outfit! Those plaid skirts really are wonderful :)


    1. Thanks Bristol! They really are! So comfy and easy to dress up or down.

  2. You look fantastic here! I love the skirt, and I love how you picked up the accent colors in your top and accessories. Very cute.
    I've done the same thing recently, except instead of plaid, it's the color red. I never used to wear it, but in the last year it seems like half the things I've bought have been red. I guess the heart wants what the heart wants...

    1. Thank you so much! You know I've been really digging the color red a lot lately too. In the past (maybe the hair change is the reason) red clashed with my skin but now it seems to work for me and I love it! Especially deep reds. Perhaps the heart is indeed at play. 😊

  3. That skirt is super cute! Haha, you should see my closet; I have SO many plaid skirts, and now I own a plaid jumper. I cannot resist. This one looks SO good on you, and you do pull off the look really well!
    Ah, one of my friends worked at Estes park for a while, but she has since moved on. Her posts about it were always so beautiful (and also, it would be so creepy to work there!)

    1. Thanks Kristina! Aww I love jumpers but mines floral. I thought my reign of plaid would be done but I'm guilty of getting another dress from fleet collection. Darn their amazing sales! I think that's it though. I'm done for now...
