A red plaid Madewell shirt for February’s Project Sister Act.
Red and February go together like PB&J. While I don’t have a ton of red in my wardrobe, this Madewell shirt came to mind when Sheelah from Sheelah Writes contacted me about joining in on February’s Project Sister Act for a red-hued theme.
Sheelah started Project Sister Act to illustrate how no matter your age, you can put your own spin on the trends. Project Sister Act showcases how colors and accents can be interpreted + personalized by gathering a few bloggers in specific age ranges to participate: a blogger in her teens, one in her 20’s, one in her 30’s, Sheelah reps the 40’s, and a blogger in her 50’s. I’m the 30-something blogger for this round, and my outfit demonstrates that red doesn’t have to be super romantic or girly. (Not that there’s anything wrong with romantic/girly, just not my usual schtick.)
This red plaid Madewell shirt is an easy piece to style. I wanted to put a tough spin on things, so I grabbed a pair of high-waisted faded black denim (an H&M score), a pair of fishnets (yeah, they’re a thing), and a double-buckle belt (get it at ASOS for under $30). Some dainty jewelry and a pair of classic + cool loafer mules work in some more ladylike elements and provide a little balance to the outfit.

Now sharing what the rest of the ladies put together:

This one-shoulder stunner is too fun!

Roxanne looks gorgeous in this burgundy shirt dress! What a great piece.
40’s: Sheela from Sheela Writes
Sheela never shies away from a dramatic look; I love that!

Cherie is maxed out on brights here and I love it.
This was such a fun collab to be part of; thanks to Sheela for including me! With that, I’m wishing you a happy Friday + weekend!
