it’s thursday and the living is easy thanks to the shining sun, and cooler temps. it’s the kind of day that’s great to bum around town in a cozy cable sweater and go-to jean jacket, and maybe slip into a local pub for a steaming mug of irish coffee. plaid and fall go together like milk and cookies so it was a no brainer to reach for a red plaid shirt to give this ootd a little zing. if your outfit is in the neutral zone like mine is todfay don’t be afraid to bring in bit color. a red buffalo plaid scarf would have been another option if the temps had been cooler. this time of year, i love to tuck my jeans inside my boots so that’s just what i did. a leather tote, a few of my favorite pins on my jacket, and i’m ready to hit the streets of san francisco looking pulled together but understated.

Great outfit! I love the boots & bag! Beautiful color! And the plaid shirt is just perfect to add some interest to the outfit!
when winter rolls around i could live in boots! and i’m a sucker for plaid.
thank you, ma’am! one of my favorites.
Love this layered look. (I think I’m going searching in my closet for my denim jacket…)
hey friend! everyone should have jean jacket hanging somewhere in their closet. i hope you find yours ASAP. i wear mine all the time. (even when it’s not on trend!)
This outfit is the epitome of casual chic! And it makes you look so slim! Loving the hair. It really frames your face beautifully.
well, thank you, karen! god bless you. what woman doesn’t want to hear they look slim.
but today’s ootd is a look i favor. i’m loving the new do, too!
Love the outfit! Perfect combination! I wish I can wear something like that but here in Miami is 86 degrees 🙂
when i lived on guam (humid and hot) i would wear something similar. but it would be shorts, skirt for the bottom, lightweight shirt on top, and the jean jacket came in handy at the movie theater or other indoor venue. i remember those frigid temps from the constant blast from air conditioners!
