OOTD: Plaid Obsessed

If you haven't noticed I am officially obsessed with plaid! My typical outerwear look recently has been my Brooks Brothers jacket along with a plaid scarf. The current go-to scarf is this red one that I picked up from Macy's last year. It goes perfectly with my coat and with basically everything I wear. 

For my outfit I layered a fun nautical sweater with a striped collared shirt. Layering is one of my favorite hobbies in the fall. I love the idea of wearing a sweater with a collared shirt peeking out. It's for sure my go-to look for the colder months. Also, you can't forget a statement necklace! So I wore another favorite of mine a pearl statement necklace from J Crew. I know nautical pieces are generally for the summer but I can't help myself, I wear nautical pieces all year round. There is nothing better than an anchor in my opinion. 

To dress down this look I wore jeans and a pair of Sperry Topsiders. I love these Sperry's because basically no one has them and they are partnered with J Crew. So essentially my two favorite things combined into one fabulous shoe. 

This outfit was perfect for a day of class then running errands. Here is me downtown Ames in front of a disco ball Cy. How perfect? Iowa State combined with sparkle. It doesn't get much better. On our errands we decided to stop by a cupcake shop called Cupcake Emporium. They make fabulous cupcakes and were even featured on Cupcake Wars. Cupcake Wars is my new obsession as well. It's on Netflix people be sure to go watch it. 

For my arm candy of the day I paired my favorite bangles (the usual) with an anchor bracelet that I received as a gift! Even my friend contribute to my nautical addiction. Then of course I wore my classic gold Michael Kors watch.
