Guest Post: Creme de la Carol, Playing With Plaid

This post is something that I asked Carol (Creme de la Carol) to hook up for me; given her super styling technique and she’s cute as a button! Check out her blog and you won’t be disappointed. I usually end up drooling at her outfits by the end of the post… and her sense of humor– well, just go see for yourself. This girl is one witty and chic blogger 🙂


Well, hello there! I’m Carol, author of Crème de la Carol, which is a little blog I created in order to share my baking adventures, outfits/fashion inspiration, and bits of my everyday life. I’m just a small town, Louisiana girl that loves chocolate and clothes… probably more than I should. I was so excited when Quin asked me to guest post on her blog! I just love all of her outfit inspiration boards and her beauty posts, especially since I wear the same eyeshadow every day. Make-up is not my thing, y’all. (Even if I wish it was.) Clothes, on the other hand, are my thing, which is convenient since that’s what I wanted to talk you about anyway.

Like most people, I really love fall. I love boots, sweaters, plaid, and everything else that goes along with the season. (Like hot chocolate and pumpkin pie.) So today’s outfit post is centered on one of my favorite fall pieces, the plaid shirt.






You know, I keep seeing that plaid is “so in” for fall 2013, but I just keep wondering, when was plaid out? Maybe it’s just more “in” this year in comparison to others. I’m not really sure, but either way I’m happy because I’m just going to keep on wearing it. I picked this shirt up last year at J.Crew, and have worn it so many times. I especially love pairing it with all neutral colors. I think it allows the shirt to really shine. However, I almost gave the shirt competition with my hat choice, but I just couldn’t resist. I think the fact that it’s a neutral color scheme means the plaid still wins.

If you don’t already have a shirt such as this in your closet, I highly recommend investing in one. You’d be surprised how many ways you can wear it! And don’t worry, since it’s “in” this season, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding it. 🙂
