Plaid in Central Park

5th January 2015

IMG_6465Tops Knots & Blanket Scarves are besties, so it’s only natural I keep them together… besties should always stay close!IMG_6681IMG_6522I warned you in the last post that come Winter I go mad for plaid, and today I’m putting my money where my tartan is and doubling up on plaid for a day in Central Park.IMG_6511IMG_6647IMG_6692Central Park is pretty pretty this time of year, especially if you have a thing for dead trees, which I totally do! Bare trees with only a few straggling leafs are kind of one of my favorite things in winter (second only to snow and right in front of outdoor iceskating… more on that later this week).IMG_6531IMG_6670IMG_6519For this look, a double dose of plaid was totally necessary. I layered my boyfriend’s buffalo plaid popover (why yes, I did wear the same shirt two days in one weekend… thank you for noticing 😉 ) under a baby blue sweater before layering a black puffer vest over both pieces and finishing with a blanket scarf. I had my heart set on adding a bow and a bun to this look, but haven’t dabbled in the top knot since chopping off my hair at Rizza Salon so I used this bow (a vintage bowtie I borrowed from my frenchie, Waffles) and 27 bobby pins to help secure my topknot… It’s not perfect but we’re getting there – tutorial coming soon!IMG_6467Scarf (also here) || Jeans || Sweater || Plaid Shirt || Vest || Sunnies || Booties || Bag || Lips

    I love plaid! I’m wearing a plaid shirtdress right now! I’m about to do a blog photoshoot and I’m going to style the dress 3 ways. Plaid is so easy! I love your topknot and the adorable little bow in your hair!

    You’re not the only, everyone in this city is crazy for these patterns. Can’t get away from it. Irish plaid, buffalo check, Scottish plaid, etc etc. By the time next winter rolls around, we may all be over it. I suppose we all better enjoy it. (new post)

    Love that scarf and whole look, and it was in Central Park where I visited when my family was there. We love NYC so much and we are planning to visit the city this summer again!
