Plaid Petals

What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 black lace tank
J.Crew Forever cardigan in Burgundy
anthropologie Plenty by Tracy Reese Plaid Petals skirt
black tights
grey Nine West shoes

I've wanted a lace top for ages but didn't want to spend a lot of money on it. I found this simple lace tank at Forever 21 for under $14! For a trendy piece I thought that was an acceptable price. I am pretty happy with the way this color combination turned out. I was actually wearing this cardigan when I tried on this skirt at anthropologie, and filed it away in my brain as a future outfit idea. I *love* plaid! I love it in all forms and colors. The only thing I lament is that usually men's plaid options are so much lovelier than women's. I think tartan is so interesting and wish I could go visit Scotland one day! (This may also have to do with my obsession for the Outlander series.)

The one thing I wish I could change about this outfit is my tights, they photographed way more sheer than in real life. I am on the lookout for some super thick tights though, anyone have any favorites they like? I like Hue for basic tights but am always looking for more.

These grey shoes I picked up at Marshalls! I love the heels on these, they are black patent! They are super comfortable, I wore them with tights today (a faux pas for many) but I'm sure I will wear these in warmer months as well.


  1. Those shoes are absolutely adorable and they look so comfy. Great find at Marshalls.

  2. Oooh I love the pyramid heel on those! Too bad I have banned myself from going to discount shops because I have impulse shopping issues!

  3. I love open-toe shoes with tights! I think it's fabulous. Your whole outfit is divine. You look lovely and the skirt is super flattering.

  4. I love this skirt - I own it and can't wait to wear it again! Love the way you paired it with the gray shoes, love it!

  5. jinah-
    i have major impulse shopping issues!!!!! ack. i really shouldn't shop when i'm bored

  6. Love your shoes and the sweater!
    If you're interested in tights, I found some black Anne Klein tights at Marshall's -- they were about $7/2 pairs and pretty thick. They also have patterned ones too. - JoAnn, Sidewalk Chalk

  7. Rosa, I actually dreaded the idea of tights with open-toed shoes/heels until only a few weeks ago, and now I kinda like it! Love today's outfit!

  8. cute shoes. i like open toe shoes with socks/tights, so long as they're not nude tone-- that's just a little too granny, lol. :)

  9. i love love the shoes! i'll like them better with bare feet in the spring, but it's still adorable.

  10. I have those shoes and love them too! I want to try them with tights now. Cute outfit!
