If there’s one print that I’m currently obsessed with at the moment, then it’s gingham + buffalo plaid. Seriously, I’ll take one of each of the dresses above, please! On a day-to-day basis, my favorite dresses are those that I consider daytime casual at best. In a nutshell: I like anything that can be tossed on with flats (or boots in this cold weather), dressed up with a scarf or worn as is for a totally on-point and slightly effortless look. My style philosophy these days is definitely to do less. Bye-bye heels and overly tight silhouettes... comfort is luxury, people! With all that being said, I could definitely see all three of these gingham and buffalo plaid dresses above making the transition from winter to spring, spring to summer and so on. And from day to night, with just the right pair of ankle booties and a leather jacket.
1. Courier Shirtdress in Buffalo Check (Madewell) // YAS. Madewell always gets it right with their buffalo plaid prints. (Speaking of which, I may or may not have just snagged this buffalo check skirt and this ridiculously comfy flannel shirt on major sale with the code: xoxomw.) Come springtime, I think this black-and-white shirtdress would be perfect with a field jacket or an oversized cardigan for a day trip to D.C.
2. Menzie Silk Babydoll Dress (Anthropologie) // OMG, just how sweet is this babydoll dress?! Everything from the pockets to the button detailing on the back and the above-the-knee length reads school girl to me. Throw a Barbour jacket (preferably this one) and riding boots into the mix and I'm sold.
3. Gingham Boxy Dress (Topshop) // Of all three dresses, this one is definitely the most formal. It's form-fitting but not too tight. The oversized pockets on the front coupled with the classic gingham print make this option great for the daytime and after-hours. Just toss on a statement necklace or a classic timepiece — or ditch the accessories all together for a minimalist look.
