Outfit Highlight: One Plaid Shirt, Six Outfits

Happy Monday my friends!

Hope everyone had a good weekend. I had a great birthday weekend filled with two of my favorite things, good food and quality time with the people I love. The best part was when my girls woke up at 7 a.m. to cook me breakfast, all on their own. They did an awesome job but really just the fact that they thought of doing such a thoughtful thing for my birthday made me happy.

I’m really excited about this post! Remember back in September, I was on the hunt for a plaid shirt and posted about it here. Well, after waiting forever I eventually got to purchase my top choice on sale, which was the Madewell ex-boyfriend shirt in cherry plaid. So I thought it would be fun to recreate the three looks that I shared in that same post in real life. On top of that, I took each look from fall to winter for a total of six different outfits. Just making sure I get the most mileage out of this plaid shirt!

  1. Happy Monday Cynthia and happy belated birthday to you! Hope you had great and my this next year be one filled with wonderful things for you and your family. I TOTALLY loved this post. I am amazed by all the wonderful looks you came up with that pretty plaid shirt. I had to look at it a few times to soak it all in. Super stylish and I liked them all!!! Have a wonderful day and lots of xoxo going your way:-) Jeannette


  2. I love these types of posts! And every single look turned out great! I have a problem with being creative with my outfits, if I know a certain combo looks good then I usually keep pairing it together. I like how posts like this encourage me to think outside the box a little more.

  3. Such a great remix post, Cynthia. One can do so much with a plaid shirt. I actually own a similar plaid shirt which I recently wore over my little white lace dress. Happy to see you did the same. My top 3 looks here are 1, 5 & 6. Looks like 2015 will be so stylish for you. Looking forward to more.

    Happy Monday! Ada. =)

  4. Wow, I love all the ways you have remixed this! It makes it look so versatile and easy. Well done. So glad you had a nice birthday weekend. That is so sweet of your girls! They sound pretty special.

  5. Omgosh, I love how you took those collages and *actually* wore them in real life! I think they actually look better on a person than floating in mid air haha this post is so creative and must have taken forever! (6 outfits!!). But I would love to see more of this type of stuff! 🙂

    Happy New Year,. Cynthia! Wishing you and your family all the best!
