What I Wore: Mad For Plaid!

I cannot believe it is almost November already!  The weather has been rainy for a while, but finally started to get cold enough that I need a light jacket when I leave the house.  I adore the days it isn't raining, or isn't raining too much, which also afford me the chance to take outfit photos.

This look is from another early morning errand-running day.  Sean and I had to go get blood work done first thing, and then ran some errands and went to see a movie with the mom-in-law.  I always love plaid, but I especially love wearing plaid in the fall.  There is always a cozy, laid-back feeling to plaid for me, so I tend to gravitate towards plaid shirts with a more relaxed fit. In today's post, I review this tunic from Lane Bryant!

I was out with my mom-in-law one day doing a little shopping.  We usually mosey into Lane Bryant on our days out together.  By now you should know I adore this bright pinky-purple shade, so when I saw this tunic top I knew I needed to try it on.  I was on the fence about it because sometimes oversized tops run the risk of giving me the "pregnancy look".  I haven't worn too many longer, oversized tops as of late so the silhouette threw me off a little bit.  I walked around in the shirt at the store and spent a while looking in different mirrors and different angles and taking some photos before I finally decided to get it.  I also tried on the blue version, but found the major contrast between the navy and white did not look great on me.  That's when I knew this one was the right one for me.

I'm wearing this top in a 22/24. I find the fit in the arms and bust true to size, but the rest is an oversized tunic style.  It is longer than a typical shirt and longer in back than in front.  The material is really soft, but is 100% cotton with no stretch.  Reviews on the website say the length shrinks a bit when put in the dryer.  I've washed this top, but I hang my tops up to dry so I haven't had that issue.  The fabric is lightweight enough that it isn't as warm as a flannel, which works great for me.  I'm usually too hot in places a majority of the time.  The sleeves can be rolled down, but also roll up and stay in place with a button tab.  I love that the underside of the fabric is a contrasting pattern.

The slits on the sides of the top come up to my waist, so I did wear a lacy cami underneath for more coverage.  I tucked it into my jeans so it wouldn't hang down on the sides.  I was going to let the lace show at the top, but when I finally chose this necklace to go with the look, the top looked better buttoned up a bit more to showcase the necklace.  This was a really comfy, easy outfit to wear, but I still felt like a "cool girl".  I even had some millennial at the mall holler at me saying my outfit was great.  Compliments are always in fashion!

I am pretty sure I owned this top before I bought the jeans (jean review here), but once I had them both I could not wait to wear them together!  I think the white in the contrasting cuffs of the shirt and the rips of the jeans play off each other nicely.  And seeing as how these jeans are very fitted, I felt the larger top would be a great balance.  I experimented with tucking the jeans into these boots, but it didn't look right on me.  I can't wait to wear this again because I felt really cute in it!
