Thrifty Thursday: Plaid Skirt

The Back Story: It’s Thrifty Thursday (posts that highlight one or more of my favorite thirty items.)!   In life you can't control what happens but you can control how you react to it. I have been living in my very own episode of a series of unfortunate events! For about a month I have been walking around allowing life to drain me of all my positive energy. I actually forgot how much I love to laugh and smile. This weekend I decided to change my sour puss disposition and get back to my normal goofy, giggly, and positive self. I was supposed to go see my family this weekend and that didn’t work out.  So since I was off the entire weekend, I decided to take my b-u-t-t to church, in order to help better center my energy. It was cold Sunday here in New York, so I decided to pull out one of my favorite thrifted pieces: this plaid skirt by Russ. During the fall plaids are such and important staple. So when I see plaids at the thrift store I usually purchased them immediately because of the high level of versatility. I purchased this skirt from American Thrift like 3 years ago and it's one of my favorite fall wardrobe items. Its wool so it offers some level of warmth. It was originally way to big and midi length,  but after some adjustments (shortened it and took in the waist) it’s perfect. The entire look cost under $30 including the bag. The turtleneck is thrifted J Crew $.10, Skirt is RRRuss $3.00, Tights Gap $2.00, and Boots HM $5.50.

Here are some tips wearing plaid
1.     Monochromatic: When I wear a plaid I try to make sure the rest of my look is one monochromatic color. Here it was blue, but usually it’s black.
2.     Metallics: accentuate your plaid with metallics to elevate the look
3.     Accessorize: while its important to keep the look simple when using a print. You can always take it to another level with accessories.
4.     Mix Prints: this is something I am a total novice at put for some reason leopard usually looks good with plaid.
That’s pretty much it. What are some of the things you do to get your energy positive? What’s one of your favorite fall prints?
