Buffalo Plaid Vest, 4 Ways

Christmas is upon us! Are you all ready? I'm so close with just a few more items to mark off the list. Of course, there's wrapping to be done, but let's see if I can get that done before Christmas eve!

In the meantime, I've been wearing the crud out of this adorable Buffalo plaid vest*.  It's reversible but the plaid side is my favorite, as you will quickly see in the ways I've styled it so far.  Plus, I want to get as much wear as I can while plaid is all the rage AND it's the perfect color for the Christmas season.

One other thought, a simple layering piece can add numerous options or new life to shirts you've had hanging in your closet for awhile, as it did for me in looks 2 and 4.

*The Limited is completely sold out, as are most at competitors. here are links to what I found:

First Look: Cutest Lumberjack 


Grey Deer Sweater with black accessories...The hat leans towards a western style so you could always swap out for another one if you're not feeling cowgirl-esk. Maybe a black beanie.  This top combo was styled with blue denim skinnies.

Hat: Altar'd State
Vest: the Limited (Black Friday sales)
Sweater: the Limited (Black Friday sales)

Look 2: Snowflake Fun



The snowflake shirt is so fun to me and requires little extra accessorizing and I will wear this with my grey fitted slacks.

Top: LOFT
Scarf: the Mole Hole boutique

Look 3: Plaid on Plaid - what??


I know. This goes against pattern mixing rules, but I liked how it looked on. I styled this top combo with black, thick leggings; more like jeggings. Would you wear it? If not, you could always turn the vest to the red side.  

Hat: Altar'd State clearance find
Plaid Top: the Limited (Black Friday Sale)
Scarf: Old

Look 4: The Red Side


Speaking of the red side, I finally tried it! This would be fun with winter white pants!

Hat: Target (last year's Black Friday sales)
Grey and White Plaid: Talbots (very old)

Lastly, I've mentioned the Purepleapp I use to organize my wardrobe and outfits in previous posts. Well, every once in awhile when you share what you wear with their community, your outfit may be featured on their social media accounts. I was excited to see my share posted last week!


Well, I believe it's time to get some tasks complete. Happy, happy holidays my reader friends!

    1. Thank you sweet Andrea! I tried to link the vest from the Limited site and couldn't find any! Not even the navy polka dot or the black and white. And you even reminded me what this plaid is called! :) Always helpful and encouraging.
