Plaid Statement

 Shirt & Sunnies: Forever 21, Shorts: Lani, Shoes: Opening Ceremony, Necklace: H&M, Watch: Vintage Gucci, Bracelets: Ettika

There's something edgy and feminine about pairing a casual plaid shirt with a statement necklace and a pair of killer heels. A combo I happen to love and a combo that just warms my little fashion whore of a heart! This shirt has easily become my most favorite $20 purchase ever...so easy to throw on and go. A definite repeat offender.

Great look, I love the big necklace with the plaid. I got a plaid tunic at F21 too and even though it has holes in it now I can't seem to part with it.

I love when $20 purchases become a total staple in your wardrobe! Love the colors in this plaid shirt, and looove the necklace with it! Such a mix of feminine, laid back, casual & subtly hot! I love it!

The plaid shirt is a chic go-to piece. Love how you mixed up the elements with towering heels and a statement necklace.
