Preppy in Plaid Outfit

This fall, when I was on the search for a pumpkin spiced latte from somewhere other than Starbucks. I knew that I had a small window of opportunity to wear my plaid vest outdoors.

Here is the vest that inspired this outfit.

PREPPY IN PLAID OUTFIT

Top – Lauren Ralph Lauren Cream Equestrian Style Long Sleeve

This top is a WINNERS (Canadian Marshalls or TJMAXX) find. I adore the suede elbow patches because it’s a small detail that elevates the whole top.

Bottoms – Levi’s 311 Dark Wash Denim Shaping Skinny Jeans

A classic pair of dark denim skinny jeans. 

Vest – J Crew Tartan Mountain Puffer Vest

I spoke about this vest in my Glamping Fall Outfit. The tartan pattern is a statement and I love the navy suede pipping that compliments my dark denim jeans.

Shoes – Tory Burch Royal Tan Gold Minnie Travel Ballet Flats

Wearing these flats outside was a bold choice in this cold fall weather. Next time, I’ll wear my brown ankle boots. 

Jewellery – Diamond Studs and Kate Spade New York Gold-Tone Stone Hinged Bracelet

I bought a gold-tone bracelet this summer from Kate Spade New York. It resembles a Cartier Love Bracelet except there are significant differences to it. I like how I’m supporting Kate Spade instead of buying a similar bracelet online or a kiosk. This is because you can be unsure if they’re posing as Cartier replicas.

Nails – O.P.I My Solar Clock is Ticking

Burnt red nail polish from the O.P.I Peru Fall 2018 collection.

Lipstick – NYX Powder Puff Lippie Powder Lip Cream in PPL02 Puppy Love

When I bought this lip product, I found its applicator and powdery finish intriguing. The NYX Powder Puff Lippie in Puppy Love is a burnt red shade that is long-lasting and doesn’t feel dry. Especially, when compared to other matte lip products. They don’t carry them at my drugstore anymore but they still sell them on the NYX website.
