Plaid + Denim

One of my favorite combinations is plaid and denim. I love a good plaid shirt and a pair of good jeans, and when paired together they make such a classic, casual look that's hard to beat... especially this time of year! Nothing says fall more than plaid, and this plaid shirt has been in my closet for quite a while now. It even made the cut during my closet clean out after reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up.  It's an old favorite (from Marshalls) that I've never been able to part with!

You'll usually see me wearing it with leggings while lounging around the house or running errands... because it's just one of those loose, comfy shirts that you want to wear all the time, but I recently paired it with my new pair of high rise skinny flare jeans for a casual date night out with Chris. I am so happy that flare jeans have made a comeback! For someone who wasn't blessed with long legs, I love how they instantly elongate your figure and make your legs look longer.

Since the shirt is so long and loose (why I typically wear it with leggings) I decided to tie it in the front to show off the high rise fit of the jeans... which I love! I knew when I tried these jeans on that they were the perfect flares for fall because of the fit... high rise and skinny in all the right places! Unfortunately, they sold out really fast, but I linked several other flared jeans below that are very similar to the color and fit of these.
