Happy Friday my gorgeous friends,

As you all know, I'm a sucker for anything printed, but one of my favorite fall and winter prints are plaid and tartan. You also know that I'm a fan of mixing and matching and getting the most use out of clothing; and so I challenged myself in styling my fall favorite for summer! I hate limiting myself and my closet to seasons, so I try to think of ways of utilizing each piece, if at all possible, all year round. What I suggest, based on what made it easier for me, is selecting a piece(s) that is in a color found within your plaid or tartan that's a few shades lighter. In my case, the skirt features red, grey and black, but where the red and grey meet it gives the illusion of a much lighter shade of red, giving me the ability to work with either a light pink or coral. I then decided to use solid red pieces in my accessories to help create a nice mixture and I really like how it turned out. This strategy, of course, can be applied with any of your tartan/plaid pieces, it doesn't have to be a skirt. So if, for example, your piece features hunter green, black and grey (a common combo), I'd suggest wearing a mint green piece to make it more summery. 

I hope you all found some inspiration in this post! I thank you so much for stopping by and reading and I hope you all have a fabulous weekend :)
