Double Check

Buffalo Plaid Drop Waist Dress from Old Navy

Sometimes when something is so good it needs double the attention. Take for example this check dress from Old Navy. I wore it here about a month ago with my cowgirl boots for a girls trip to a wine festival. This time around I wanted to add a little bit of edge with my gray leather jacket and ankle boots both from Wallis. This dress is probably one of my favorite purchases this season. Not only is it super affordable, but the versatility goes for miles. When the weather cools down, I plan on wearing it with my riding boots or with tights. I think many of you would agree about what a fab friend it is because it's VERY close to being sold out. Only a few sizes are left.

In case you are wondering, I purchased the tall medium. I am 5'7. As you can see the length hits right above my knees and provides just the right amount of room to move comfortably.

If there is one print that I am overly obsessed with this season it has to be buffalo check/plaid. I am so happy that it came back in full force again this year. I have worn my scarf in the same pattern more times than I count...see some inspiration here and here. I plan on adding a button down top to my closet and came so close to buying this wrap jacket at Target. I am still contemplating on going back and getting it. What do y'all think?

Below are a few buffalo plaid pieces that I found while doing a little online shopping. Pair it with denim, leather, boots, leggings, dresses or be daring and pattern mix with some leopard! I promise you won't be sorry if you grab a piece or two. Happy shopping and thanks for stopping by!

I love this check dress on you. I ordered it but it was so awful looking on me - drop waist and me just don't mix.

I am in love with check/large plaid prints this season ( and always actually) too. Love the jacket, and boots you wore it with, the dress though is super fab! Can't believe how affordable and versatile it is. I can imagine all the fun looks you'll keep coming up with it all winter. What a great buy!! Have a wonderful Wednesday lovely, XOXO, Elif

I have seen this dress on so many bloggers lately and I absolutely adore it. I wish I was in the states right now because I would shop so much at Old Navy. They have so many cute things currently. Love how you styled it. Such perfect Fall layers. Looking gorgeous as usual. BTW, are you still a spokesperson for Wallis? =) They are lucky to have you, Shanna.

Happy Hump Day!

I am in love with the red checkered trend and am on the search for a button down to add to my collection. Unfortunately, drop waist dresses don't look good on me because of my wide hips and thighs and ass haha :/ I've always been an a-line kind of gal but I love how you layered this look and think that adding a jacket may be just the thing I need to help define my waist if I ever decide to give the drop waist dress look a try. Happy Wednesday Shanna! :)
