Outfit: Leather + Plaid


Happy October, lovies! can’t freakin’ believe it’s already October. Another year has almost flown by! Anyhoo, I feel like I have my best ideas when I’m in the shower. It’s like I have all these “Eureka” moments. Oftentimes, I forget the idea by the time I get out, but I’m glad I remembered this outfit. I’ve had this shirt for years, and it’s never appeared on the blog. I’ve always wanted to wear it, but I just couldn’t think of the right thing to pair it with, until now! Where do you have your best ideas, outfits or otherwise?

Btw, this post was featured on IFB Project #115 Roundup! So exciting!

    Gorgeous! Great outfit! Funny that it came to you in the shower! Usually mine is as I’m drifting off to sleep! Hana

    • Dhruvi

      Thank you, Carylee! I sometimes get ideas when I’m already half asleep as well. I make sure I make a note in my phone though. Lol.

  • That outfit is gorgeous!! I really love both plaid and leather–sometimes it’s fun to take patterns and fabrics that might seem a little more ‘manly’ and show how girly they can be!

    • Dhruvi

      Thanks so much, Rachel. I agree – I have an obsession with menswear inspired pieces – plaid, baggy sweaters, combat boots. But I love making those pieces girly.

  • Amy Disbrow

    This outfit rocks! I have a leather skirt similar to that but would never have thought to pair it with a plaid top. Thanks so much for the idea!
