WIW: Plaid Lovin'

This plaid trend is about my favorite thing ever.  Here's a couple of recent outfits showcasing some of the plaid in my closet.

#1 black and red buffalo check (over faded black or dark gray skinnies) - the vest is a bit warm for our not-yet-cold weather, but I was eager to wear it, and enjoyed it.  It's almost like a sleeveless bomber jacket (but very thick and puffy)

#2 brown plaid with white jeans.  Black belt and shoes because I wanted to wear boots rather than my cognac loafers.  I also felt like this one worked pretty well.

Suggestions for improvement?  Are there things that don't work about these two outfits that I'm missing?

    Fun casual looks. I really like the checked body warmer in #1. If that were a practical piece for me - I'd have one too.

    That vest is brilliant on you!! So much fun. Grunge meets girl.  :)

    Plaid really suits you Amy. I love the second look with the brown plaid and white jeans. You're rockin' it!

    Plaid & your boots are the perfect combo.  And I love that Angie called your vest a body warmer.  Always an education here on YLF.  :)

    The vest described as a body warmer is really quite an accurate description, at least for this particular vest - it's very warm! 

    And thank you - I've always loved plaids, and feel quite myself in them :)

    Both looks are great on you. Where did you find brown plaid? I especially like the body warmer and buffalo plaid.

    Joy - the Brown plaid is a dress barn 'tunic' that I got at a rummage sale.  I'm sure it's years and years old....  (And it never was tunic length on me - I ditched the self-belt and removed the belt loops, and it's the perfect size and shape for a more modern flannel shirt.)

    I love that the plaid vest on you!
