Spots and Dots


You can keep adding to them with photos or finds, there is inspiration there for people looking how to add pattern into their wardrobe.

Now checks..

I have a large check blue gingham dress that I wear over summer.  This spoke to me because in my mind it had a Scandinavian flavour that I liked, but it is the only check item I have bought in the last probably 20 years!!  This has lasted two summers well and will get regular wear this summer.  It is not quite a workhorse but will get worn ten-twelve times a season.  It is a dress I don't like layered with a jacket or cardigan which reduces it's usefulness in our erratic climate.

I have also added a pic of myself in a cream and grey plaid coat that I inherited from my Grandmother back in 2011 when she passed away.  I am guessing it is 1960s in vintage, I think a car coat?  I rarely wear it, and am open to feedback as to how I should style it or whether I should pass it on.  I wore it with a modern casual look today.

And lastly, I have two scarves - I have never worn either - one in Kerr tartan, one inherited from my MIL.  I could pass them on - they are both wool and I just struggle to know how to wear them.

Over to you, there are many plaid lovers on the forum and I look forward to seeing their outfits.
