I need to start out this post first and foremost by saying, "Happy Veteran's Day!" Both Kacie and I are off work today to celebrate the holiday, but we can never forget the price that freedom costs. Our service men and women work each day to protect that freedom that you and I both enjoy–vacations, family get-togethers, sporting events, etc. These men and women have sacrificed time with their families, comfort of their home and favorite foods, and sometimes their lives to keep this country free and for that, I thank them!

I'm not going to say too much about this outfit. Mainly because my hair is flying backwards and I'm channeling Farrah Fawcett circa 1980 with this windblown look, but I still loved the background and the outfit in general. If you don't believe me on the wind factor, check out Kacie's post for validation. Enjoy!

  1. I love the photos. I seem to always be fighting wind. Your plaid combination is perfection and I love the addition of the statement necklace.

    1. We totally tried your wind trick and it worked a bit for Kacie. I, on the other hand, looked like Cousin it. :) Ha! Thank you for stopping by. I love mixing prints and finally don't feel weird doing it.

    1. Thank you, Julie! This is my first venture into the buffalo plaid region, but I do love it with the leopard shoes. Leopard is becoming quite a fun neutral in my closet.
