A New Way To Style Plaid

photo-nov-11-9-42-19-amThere’s one thing I can promise you: plaid will NEVER go out of style. It’s a classic print that can be worn well by anyone, at any age. I wanted to snaz up a more traditional, preppy plaid blouse in my closet so I paired it with leather to give it some edge.

The pleats in this amazing and affordable leather skirt from J. Crew add a feminine touch and a flattering A-line silhouette. That’s what I call a win-win!

How To Accessorize

photo-nov-11-9-41-57-ameeBows are a girl’s best friend… well, at least this girl. I was having the worst hair day when I took
this pic so I threw my hair back with this tan leather bow from H&M. I often like to button up my collared shirt and pair it with a bold necklace like this one.  On the days I go necklace free, you know I’m poppin’ that collar!

This is a very easy look to recreate. Love it? Have a question? Please share your thoughts!jsi-jshea_signature



  1. Your article and HS2 Ltd make little reference to the rail users between London and Birmingham along the line, who will not only have the blight of the track, 7 years of massive infrastructure construction locally, and then will have a reduced local train service from local stations to London.I await clarification on how a project that is supposed to help with cognostien/volumes, also supports a reduction in local train services…that does not appear to follow any form of logic, unless the local train reductions were used to make the numbers add up.

  3. Fortunately, once we have been persuaded to change our mind about something, we are really good at retrofitting our memories to make it look–even to ourselves–that we have always believed what we currently believe, or, at least, that what we currently believe is the logical outcome of what we have always believed. Precisely because we value being consistent, we are more than willing to alter our own memories to convince us that we are.

  4. I’m a HUGE fan of risotto and make a few variations frequently – three-way tomato (fresh tomatoes, tomato paste and sun-dried tomatoes), fennel, and leek, being the favorites. I also do a beet risotto, using golden beets though, because I hate the staining of my fingers from the red beets ;-p But this recipe sounds so good I might have to put up with the red fingertips!

  5. You must keep in mind all the times you have used your debit card. Not all businesses submit their debit card transactions daily. Consequently you can overdraw your account because when a merchant runs your card there are sufficient funds to cover the transaction. Then when all of your debit card transactions hit your account you are overdrawn.Debit card transactions are the same as outstanding checks. People are responsable for maintaing their chdecking accounts, not the bank! Quit complaining and be a responsable customer.

  6. Good comments about words, Ross.I find myself constantly amazed at the extent to which the words of war pervade our language. I now find myself pulling back every time I start to say that we need to attack a problem, or hit on a solution, or fight back against right wing extremists. There must be better ways to conceptualize and talk about activities such as protest, resistance etc.

  7. “Minä noudatan vain käskyjä. Ne tulevat ylhäältä”Kuullostaa kovin tutulta toisesta yhteydestä. Yhteydestä, jonka kohdalla aina sanotaan, että kyllähän jokaisella oli oikeus kieltäytyä tekemästä hirveyksiä.Israelissa kaikki on vain ilmeisesti toisin.Keep up the good Work, Eero!

  8. Nice work, Matt! I actually first saw your new site on mobile. Pretty cool to see the various states, and how much more sophisticated this new build is.Congrats on putting the new site up, I’m inspired to finish (and start) mine!

  9. I’ve played about 8 times this season and overall have been playing pretty well for my standards. However, yesterday, I played one of the worst rounds of my life and got really discouraged. Does anyone have any hints, tips, or drills that may help me swing through the ball (not at it) and release the club (a term I’ve been hearing a lot lately)? Also, tips on staying down on the ball would be helpful. Thanks.

  10. Qu’est ce qu’il faut pas entendre… héréditaire? Mais vous nagez en pleine science fiction mon pauvre.L’adoubement n’est absolument pas automatique… il faut faire ses preuves pour le mériter. Et si certes une grande partie des chevaliers proviennent dún milieu aisé, tous les gens de milieux aisés ne deviennent pas chevalier.Le titre de chevalier (si tant est qu’on le compte parmi les titres de noblesse) est justement le moins héréditaire de tous.

  11. July 9, 2009  11:30 AM by Rae I love simple chocolate, chocolate chip, pecan cookies (dipped in chocolate ganache). . .if you’re going to have dessert than I highly recommend chocolate. You could always take two and add a little chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream between them. . .makes for a nice snack. :)Love your blog.

  12. 223Hey Jeremy, I was also afraid of this and I had stage four bunions in both feet. So to avoid any reason at all for DQ I have undergone one surgery and the next is in three weeks. They were fine day to day, but for the marines, marching, running, training in general; I knew I would have pain. My suggestion- Have them removed and your feet honestly do feel a lot better. Downtime is 6 weeks. However, if your feet are not crippling to your performance IN ANY WAY. It shouldn’t be a problem.

  13. CobainSéralini est très très très très mal placé pour dénoncer le lobbying et les méthodes de communications abusives.Le réalisateur de son film ($$$) s’est fait tacler en direct hier soir dans C à vous lorsque le présentateur a révélé en direct qu’ils avaient été approchés par une agence de communiquation pour faire sa promo

  14. Pretty please Jed: On each entry line, can you include the $amount of seed funding that the listed accelerator provides. That would be so awesome and time saving for entrepreneurs using Seed-DB to research programs. Thank you!!!

  15. Pues mira, qué cosas, esta ensalada se ha hecho en casa de mi madre desde siempre aunque con dos cambios, uno que llevaba manzana y maíz, y otro que a veces se hacia con salsa rosa. Pero vamos, pollo, york, lechuguita picada, espárragos, huevo y mahonesa, y a todo esto, huevo usábamos normal, aunque ya te digo que queda mas mono así!. Un saludo y feliz lunes.

  16. Låter himla gott. Tänker på dtit föregående inlägg. Då äter jag Lc och maken mer GI. Jag äter inte bröd eller annan stärkelse i form av pasta,ris eller pärer. Tack för öl tipset ;) . Ha en härlig måndag. Kram

  17. Hi Mattie! I just wanted to say thanks for shaking things up at Kotaku today. The response–regrettably–seems to confirm your point more often than not. Nevertheless, I think it’s always a good thing to challenge people…whether they rise to it or not.But what I really wanted to thank you for is introducing me to this blog! It seems like ya’ll have a nice little community here. I’ll be sure to visit again.

  18. Brava! This agrees with my pizza-passion. I could have pizza every day, provided it were made like this!I tried voting but there's a banner saying voting starts Oct 18th… this IS Oct 18th! At least on this side of the Atlantic…CiaoEle xx

  19. There are some attention-grabbing points in this article however I don’t know if I see all of them heart to heart. There is some validity but I’ll take maintain an opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as well.

  20. The images were released 40 years after NASA’s famous original Blue Marble photograph. That image is considered to be one of the most distributed on Earth and one of most famous photographs of the planet.  NASA updated the Blue Marble image in 2012 to show the planet in more detail.

  21. One sentence: je ne sais quoi.There is something about Paris that no other city has & it's so hard to point out exactly what it is.I would say it's a combination of so many things… the history that you see in the stunning architecture, the style & sophistication of the women that strut the streets, the cafes, the language… I could go on forever…Every time you return, you're sure to find another quality, another excitement, another adventure.Congratulations on "Paris Tango"!!~ Clare x
