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?

    Those are both great plaids on you!

    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!
