Photos by: Captured by CollinsHello September. Hello (hopefully) cooler weather, hello warm lattes and scarves and fall leaves and PLAID. Am I the only one who starts dreaming of plaid around mid-August? Well, that was around the same time I picked out these adorable Mommy and Me Plaid Tunics. Luckily, we had a few days of really cool weather……so Lydia and I got to break them out early. I can't decide which plaid tunic I like more, mine or hers! This entire outfit of mine has been waiting patiently to be worn again since the temperature climbed right back up to the 90s this week. The black and white tunic? So flattering. The boots, way more comfortable than they look….in fact I've been wearing them with dresses while waiting for the weather to cool.
And those LEGGINGS. Am I the only one who just learned that Hanes makes leggings? They're thick, matte and don't stretch out by the end of the day. Seriously? That's hard to find! Plus, they're a GREAT deal. What a win, right? I may have three pairs waiting in my dresser for cooler weather.
And my bag. I posted a sneak peek of this outfit on Instagram and got a TON of questions about it. It's cute, right? It's by an amazing brand called R. Riveter. Each piece of it was made by a military spouse. Imagine moving every few years when your family is transferred. Keeping a job? Probably not easy. I love that this bag is a symbol of those who serve our country (because I honestly believe military spouses are serving us too). You'll be seeing plenty more of R. Riveter around these parts.
And Lydia? That plaid tunic? She's obsessed with it. It breaks my heart in this heat wave to tell her it has to go back into the closet. She looks so grown up in it! It's from a beautifully curated children's boutique, Chrome Classic. I had the hardest time picking one item for Lydia, every piece was just adorable! Scroll all the way down to the end of this post, because they're giving one reader a $50 shop credit.
So, are you swooning over fall pieces too? I can't be the only one. Is it cool enough in your neck of the woods to actually WEAR them on a daily basis?Want to see other great ways to wear plaid? Check out this cream plaid outfit or this buffalo plaid look!
