Holy, shamoly, y’all – was yesterday hot around here or what? Southern California was seriously scorching yesterday with a high of 104, and I think Weeze and I were both going a little bit nuts. It probably wasn’t my warmest day ever (pretty sure that award goes to the afternoon and evening spent at Flora Farms in Mexico – straight up SCORCH), but it was definitely up there.
So in today’s edition of “the fall trends I’m loving but can’t even come close to wearing in real life right now,” I present to you this plaid jacket. And not just any plaid. If you’re looking for the “It print” or hot fabric this season, it’s definitely Glen plaid. It’s seriously everywhere for fall – skirts, pants, dresses (also love this one), and mostly, jackets.
While Glen plaid blazers are currently winning in the popularity department, I opted for this little lightweight version because bombers are the bomb. Haha! See what I did there?! This heat, guys. Delusional. Actually, a strange thing happened. I was online searching for these plaid pumpkins for my dining room when this jacket just jumped right in my cart too. Craziest thing.
And I’m so glad that it did. It’s pretty light so that once this heatwave business takes a bit of a chill pill I can wear it with ALL the things – dresses, jeans, skirts, whatever. It also comes in a super fun floral print and will set you back right around $40. Not bad, right? You can take that under $50 change and throw in one of the plaid pumpkins. Or, you know, don’t. Up to you.
What do you guys think of the Glen plaid trend?
