December, whoa. Can you believe the end of the year is nearly here? I’m reeling a bit from how fast fall flew by, and now we’re in the holiday season– and in my birthday month!
I do love a plaid shirt, and lumberjack black + red check is a classic. I bought this version at Forever21, and sized it up to amplify that borrowed-from-the-boyfriend feel. Faded black denim felt like a good match, and I grabbed an old pair of classic Michael Kors boots to top off the look.
Do you mix high and low? The shirt retails for less than a $20 spot, while the boots and jeans run considerably higher. I mix and match pieces across price points because it stretches my closet. You can make an affordable score from Forever21 look designer if you style it correctly, am I right? It doesn’t matter how many expensive pieces you have in your closet (or if you have any!); dressing in head-to-toe designer doesn’t a style make. Mix it up! Pairing your high end pieces with your budget steals is a great way to keep your closet fresh.
