Falling in love with fall... And mad for plaid.

There's something lovely about fall... The colors changing in the leaves, the crispness in the air, and of course fall fashion. Autumn is awesome, y'all. I often identify fall as a new beginning and there's something in me that yearns to walk around crunching leaves with my Frye Carmen Harness Short boots, wearing plaid, and holding hands with my sweetheart (perhaps with a soy pumpkin spice latte in my other hand).

I'm a little mad for plaid as of late... I've added two plaid shirts to my wardrobe and realizing their both of the green color palette but one pops more than the other. Plaid is that perfect mix of punk and preppy which I tend to blur lines with regarding my current wardrobe choices.

This Cloth & Stone plaid shirt from South Moon Under was my first plaid addition to add to this year's fall wardrobe. I love the longer length and that I can also pair with leggings or tuck it into a skirt. I personally wear mine with the sleeves rolled up. I cannot wait to add a cardigan or a sweater when the weather gets cooler. The color palette could either go more punk or prep with this one. Definitely a favorite item of mine!

Oh UNIQLO, how I love your well made yet affordable pieces. I had a last minute wardrobe malfunction of sorts this week and needed something appropriate to wear. So here we go... A green and fuschia plaid shirt with a touch of sky blue. This is totally preppy McPrepperson but I kind of dig it. The flannel is super soft yet lightweight on this one.

I'm still having issues with getting my domain back, it is a big ol' pain in the booty. Can I pay my $10 and get my domain again?! Too much work, perhaps I shall become TheRetailista.net or something along those lines? I am not a happy camper with Google Apps and Enom. Womp womp.

And last but not least, I am in the market for new job opportunities... Business is business and I'm living in the fashion capital of the East Coast so why not embrace it?
