Wrapped in Plaid

IMG_1508138771040Sweaters, jackets, boots and scarves…fall is here! However, our North Texas fall temperatures seem to change from hour to hour. I’ve left my home on a cool October morning, dressed in the cutest fall attire, only to return sweating uncomfortably on what many would call a summer afternoon. Yes, I’ve learned the hard way that layering is the way to go! And nothing says fall like plaid. IMG_1508138435638Last week’s fall post was about scarves. This week, let’s focus on wraps, ponchos, and ruanas. (👗A ruana is a poncho-style outer garment typical of the Andes region of Venezuela and Colombia.) Any one of these pieces can turn a basic white tee shirt and jeans outfit into a stylish look for fall. This green plaid ruana from Francescas is ever so soft.  I really love the pom pom details. Put it on when you’re too cool or take it off when you’re too warm- and you’ll be comfortable all day long. By adding booties in a similar hue the whole ensemble is perfect for a North Texas fall day.

    I love that Ruana! Pattern is so pretty! Breast cancer awareness is so important too! I’ve known too many people who have had it and their fighting spirit motivates me!
