Plaid X Two :: Casual days & Date nights

Plaid X Two-1

Happy Wednesday everyone!  A few weeks ago, Kelly and I got together to celebrate her engagement (congrats again Kelly & Mr. Alterationsneeded!) and the launch of the Promise Bracelet.  After brunch, we wandered over to Barneys, and once inside, we beelined for the Marissa Webb collection.  There it stood… this blazer.  A perfect autumn piece with structured lines, leather details, and a bell hem silhouette.  Alternating between petting and staring, I was completely smitten with it.  More importantly, I felt challenged and inspired by it.  I wanted to create as many pairings as possible and to fully embrace styling a plaid print.  For today’s post, the adventure begins with a day look, pairing plaid with lace and distressed jeans, and ends with a date night look, coupling plaid with holiday colors and flare shapes.

For our dinner date, I wanted to restyle the plaid print with a peplum top and flare skirt.  And since it’s December, a holiday palette is very appropriate =)  One of our favorite places to dine in LA is The Little Next Door.  If you haven’t been, we highly recommend it!  We love sitting in the patio area with a glass of wine, our favorite dishes, and coffee afterwards.  It’s quiet and charming… a great date night spot!
