checked out

So here's the thing; I have never in my life been inclined to wear plaid/flannel in any way. I think I associate plaid with kilts and tablecloths in Italian restaurants. But for some reason this season when I started to see fall lookbooks for my favorite stores I didn't find myself passing the pages featuring plaid with my usual haste. I suddenly found myself enjoying the mixing with florals, the long flowing bottoms and the cutout dresses. But of course I paired it with black, black and some more black. So what does a college girl do when she wants to try a trend but doesn't own it herself? Borrow from her trusty roommate, of course! Shout out to Maddy for the loan, and scroll down past the photos to see some of the inspiration for this look.
