Mad About Plaid...

I'm super excited about today's collaboration with Samantha of Gold Coast Girl! I recently met Samantha on the set of Windy City Live, as we both made our television debuts in a fashion segment about incorporating fall fashion trends into the workplace. While we should have been paying attention to the show's set director during rehearsals, Samantha and I were more focused on planning a trip to the nearby DSW so that she could scoop up a pair of the Valentino 'Rockstud' dupes I was wearing. Needless to say, we clicked right away, and both the TV segment and trip to DSW were a success! 

Samantha and I met up this past Saturday to share our love for one of the season's hottest trends - plaid! For our collaboration, I paired a basic black & white plaid button down with black skinny jeans and moto booties, and Samantha incorporated plaid into her outfit via a gorgeous blanket scarf. While we chose to keep our looks rather basic, plaid can really be worn and paired with several different textures, fabrics, colors and prints. Basically, plaid is a neutral... kind of like leopard (and if you're me, kind of like pink, hehehe). 

Be sure to check out Gold Coast Girl for more photos plus an interview I did with Samantha, as well as updates on all of the latest fashion trends and happenings in Chicago! 

Thank y'all so much for stopping by. May your day be as beautiful as you are!
