What I'd Wear Wednesday: Plaid for a plaid-o-phobe

What I'd wear today if I could: this darling skirt by Free People. I know, I know, I keep bringing Free People stuff to this blog. I can't help it.

Let me first say I am not a big fan of plaid. I bet I couldn't find a single thing in my closet that is plaid. Oh, wait -- I have a kilt-like skirt I like to wear around Christmastime. I think that's it.

But this skirt is great for plaid-o-phobes like me because you get the plaid in a small dose. It just adds a little interest, a little pop of color as some people like to say. And maybe the plaid would hide stains, which I'm finding are getting harder to avoid as Fly gets older.

Besides the plaid, this skirt has a fun shape, and you could wear it with a lot of colors. Me, I think I'd wear it with a simple tee. With flip-flops, it would look beachy, and with sandals and a button-front shirt layered over the tee, it would be superb casual cool.

That's adorable! My son got some extremely cute plaid duds for his birthday. Now, he's three ... but it did remind me how fab plaid can be.

It is a cute skirt. I do like how the plaid is in small boxes and not the entire skirt. Wearing it with a simple tee and flip flops would look darling.
