Mad For Plaid // Moms Do Fall Fashion // Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway!

You guys. It has been raining for three straight days here and I can feel my sanity slowly slipping away. Because of the weather, the big boys haven't been going outside for recess much which means they're in rare form when I pick them up from school each day. Coupled with putting our house on the market and trying to keep it show-ready has made for quite the interesting week. (Which, by the way, surprise! That's a post all in itself. Maybe one day I'll actually get the chance to sit down and write about it). 

All that to say, TGIF (and thank God for Bota boxes)! 

Today I'm joining a fantastic group of moms and linking up with our friends over at Take Time For Style to show case how moms from all over the place do Fall fashion. If you scroll through the posts you'll see everything from monogrammed capelets to fringe boots and how to wear sweater vests. It's been a great little month-long series and I love that it's inspired me to add a few new transition pieces to my wardrobe this year. 

My typical Fall fashion is simple and typically consists of denim, plaid, puffer vests and booties. I should really be ashamed at just how much plaid I have hanging in my closet but I'll go ahead and blame my Catholic school upbringing for the obsession! In retrospect, I guess I could have also titled this post, "Basic and Proud!" but ya can't fault a girl for loving an easy trend, right?

Depending on the accessories, these pieces can be dressed up for a night out or dressed down for a weekend outing with the family. I love their versatility as well as the ease of quite literally throwing them on and heading out the door. 

In today's post, you'll see I substituted my usual bootie for the ever-popular wellie, thanks to Mother Nature. Since Fall here in Maryland can often start out fairly damp and rainy, a great rain boot is a surefire Fall-staple and like every other girl on the Internets, I love my Hunter wellies

Plaid / Vest ($49.50!) / Jeans / Boots / Bag

Currently, the JCrew Factory puffer vests are on mega sale and solid colors start at $49! It's such a great deal for something you'll wear all season long. I've had my eye on the navy/ivory buffalo check quilted puffer and just might pull the trigger later today. 

And look at all of this plaid! Al Borland or not, there's always room in my closet for more! 

What are some of your Fall closet staples?
