Wear it Both Ways: Plaid Top

Fashion Fundamental: A patterned top is the perfect layering piece for those cold winter days; it provides visual interest and texture to any look.

I was so inspired by my two lovely guest posters, Chioma & KW, and the way they wore it both ways that I decided to put my own look together!

Lately, I've been very much enjoying colored tights; it's definitely winter here in KC, though spring did indeed fake us out.  Colored tights have been a fun & funky item to pair.  With both of these looks, I've used a base of neutrals to highlight these fun jewel-toned colors.
