A few weeks ago I threw together this outfit but it only made it to Instagram. However, I loved it so much that I wanted to get better photos. So, I recreated it.
My original plan when I packed my gym bag that morning was just the plaid shirt. But, that shirt is kind of boxy on me so I felt it needed something to give it shape. My first instinct was to go for my olive cargo vest but I also felt that was a cop-out. This particular shirt has some black in it so why not go for a black vest?
All piled together it kind of looked like a random assortment of stuff. Jeans, brown boots, plaid shirt and a black moto vest? Interesting. But, for some reason it all works together.
I also like adding the white long sleeved tee under the plaid shirt and pushing up the sleeves on both. I think it helps add some visual interest to the outfit. Also, when it’s cold in Chicago, it adds some warmth. Always appreciated, right?
