Tartan Love, Tartan Parade

Post contains affiliate links. 

Good morning! November is here and with it the chill in the air. To me that means it is time to get out  my favorite tartan or plaid as some call it. I have heard that "tartan" is one of the "in" patterns for 2015. Franky, for me it never goes out of style. I wear it each and every Fall and Winter because it is a classic and my wardrobe is filled with classics.

Personally, I think that you can never go wrong with tartan plaid and here are a few of my favorite looks. As an accent; a pair of gloves, a scarf, a pair of shoes.

Whatever your style, tartan plaid is a fabulous wardrobe addition and works for everyone. Get out there and enjoy all of the patterns, and combinations I know that I will be.
