Plaid. Is. Everywhere. Just like ruffles are everywhere. Heck, you don't even have to look far to find a marriage of plaid and ruffles on the same item. Aw...isn't that cute? Yes, when it's done well.

Although the plaid trend has gone a little bit overboard, and I have yet to desire plaid leggings, plaid earrings, or a plaid tube top (ew), I do indeed, like plaid.

Like this flannel plaid dress I picked up at Ross in Atlanta. It was marked down to $5. I wasn't sure about the fit, but couldn't pass it up. It's a good thing I didn't, because I love it now. I'm guessing it was missing a belt, since it came with large belt loops. Removed the evidence and no one will ever know the difference - except you. I wore this with the same yellow coat and red, plaid bag as seen here.

Necklaces: ?
Shirt: Target
Dress: Ross, $5
Leggings: Forever 21
Boots: Madden Girl via

Bonus picture: It's not super often that the four of us are together at the same time. Less often that we all look this good at the same time. And even less often that we're all together at church. I love my girls.

Left to right: Elaina, Keely, Katie, and moi.

And case you haven't noticed, I am quite obsessed with the cross-process and rounded edges features in picnik.

I love the color combo of the dress with the boots. And the splash of color with the necklace! Looks great.

the four of you look adorable. love both these pics.

i have to say though, you have thoroughly spoiled my fun with all the ruffles. i feel like i can't fully enjoy them now. :)

I love the way you've styled this dress, and congrats on scoring it for only $5! I did buy plaid leggings the other day, but I haven't worn them yet. :)
