Cozy plaid

And just like that autumn is officially here. While we had amazing weather this past weekend I'm now grabbing for any warm and cozy sweater to bundle up with. I hope everyone on the East Coast who has dealt with Sandy is doing okay.

Yesterday I wore my new Zara sweater I got in Italy and I'm so glad I added this to my bag. I could see myself even pairing it with a belt next time around.
Sweater - Zara, Plaid shirt - Target, Jeans - Banana Republic
I have to admit that I'm really digging the braided action going on with this sweater. And the sleeves are just a tiny bit long which allows for me to cover my hands when I'm walking to work in the morning and its brisk out.

I also love plaid. Perhaps it goes back to having to wear it as part of my school uniform growing up (prep ingrained in my brain) but seriously, I love plaid. There used to be a time in my life when I rocked plaid pants (we won't go there though). I'm contemplating a plaid blazer - specifically this one. Thoughts? Or is it too outrageous to wear?

What's your thoughts on plaid? And Happy Halloween - hope you have a fun and safe day! :)
