Originally I had on a gray crewneck sweater over the top of my plaid shirt.  You know, to tone down the lumberjack look a bit.  But then a part of me liked the juxtaposition of the more casual plaid shirt with the professional pencil skirt and necklace bling. Although, for those of you who don’t like in-your-face plaid then perhaps you would have preferred it with the sweater!

Either way, it’s supposed to snow up a storm here (yay for March? Definitely in like a lion) so this outfit will be worn with snow boots during my commute for sure.  Plaid and snow boots.  Totally  lumberjack inspired.

Thoughts on plaid? Love it or hate it?
