Buffalo plaid season has arrived! Though it’s not technically fall yet, September is always when I start to bring out my plaid and check patterned favorites. Black and white check/gingham is absolutely my favorite pattern of the moment so I was thrilled when I saw this top while shopping at Madewell. The way I styled it is absolutely a “transition” outfit from summer to fall thanks to my summer sandals. When the weather gets chillier, I’ll swap out the sandals for ankle boots and add a jacket or sweater as a cozy top layer. Is anyone else so, so excited that we’re finally getting into the best season of the year?!
