Zara Plaid Jacket

There are usually a couple of obsessions that I have each season that I generally don’t get around to until near the end (I’m not really sure why that is but sometimes it just takes me a minute, ok?).  This go around it’s the plaid jacket!  I have been admiring this fabulous piece of outerwear for quite some time on others but could never seem to find just the right one for me!  And while plaid obviously can be worn year round, there is something about this trend that rings more true in the cooler months.

Well…  as a self-proclaimed Zara-aholic, I should have known that Zara would come to the rescue!  I found this fabulous jacket on online (and on sale) and decided to give it a try.  I love the simple print and classic tartan colors.  While today’s plaid offers many versatile styling options, I decided to keep this look very casual and basic, using the primary colors of the jacket to compliment the rest of my look.

The cool thing about this jacket (and plaid in general) is that it is can be dressed up or down.   (In fact, I have a cute navy dress that I already see myself wearing this with!!)
