Pretty Plaid: Plaid Shirt & Midi Skirt


I wore this outfit last Friday. I was fully supporting casual Friday, but did not feel like wearing jeans (by the way, where my husband and I work we can wear jeans every day). Solution- Dressing up my plaid shirt with this midi skirt (Last seen here Ladylike Details). This shirt speaks casual to me, while this skirt is very comfortable, so they were perfect for my casual Friday. Most importantly this skirt has pockets…I’m obsessed with skirts or dresses with pockets! If you are short like me (5’2”) we have to be careful with the mid calf length, because its cut can shorten our frame and make us look weird. Thus, I completed the outfit with beige ankle-strap heels.  Here is a great tip, if you ever want to instantly elongate your frame wear shoes in your own “nude” skin tone. This will draw attention up not down and make your legs look much longer. This skirt is fitting better this time around as my husband and I, have been trying to eat better and workout everyday (Although some weekends we forget-I mean hey, something is better than nothing, right?). However this weekend we are going to indulge a bit for my birthday week. Last month, we discovered this hole in a wall restaurant called Kin & Comfort  and we’ve been hooked ever since.  If you are ever in Austin Texas and want some killer Asian fusion food, you must and I mean ‘must’ try Kin and Comfort. They combine classic Thai dishes with American comfort food in each dish in a super cool, sophisticated, and delicious way-The result is dynamite! It seems like every time we finish a photo shoot we end up at their door…and 3-4 dishes later it’s a nap time!
