    the quintessential fall outfit.

    j crew plaid skirt

    The October weather in Iowa has been so up and down, I feel like I haven’t had a chance to really embrace fall fashion.  Either too hot for sweaters, or too cold for my new favorite mules.  So, before October ends, I need to share at least one quintessential fall outfit, don’t you think?  And the perfect J Crew plaid skirt is helping me do just that.

    For whatever reason, I had my mind set on finding a specific plaid skirt this season.  I wanted it above the knee, a-line, and not form-fitting.  An easy skirt to wear to work, dinner, holidays and during general fun fall activities.  While browsing J Crew Factory, I found this navy blue, yellow and white plaid mini and couldn’t say no.  The best part?  Only $35!  I absolutely love the J Crew brand, and when I can find deals like this at their factory store, I’m beyond happy.

    As for the rest of the outfit – they are all last year’s pieces.  The fur-trim cardigan (my favorite) is Banana Republic and the block-heel boots are Aldo.  Mixing fur and plaid is a fall must and I couldn’t resist adding knee-high socks under the boots for extra detail.  I’ve linked the plaid skirt and similar items below!
