MOMMA IS… mad about plaid!


Me and Max in our spring time plaid, enjoying the California sunshine (PS – I’m getting a much needed hair cut today…)

Once upon a time plaid was reserved for the cooler fall and winter months and relegated to thicker materials such as flannel but, while that will always be true, it has also been reinvented for the spring and summer months in lighter colors and fabrics.  That’s right, plaid is hot for spring and the widely popular tartan print can be found in everything from your traditional button front to dresses and blouses in silk and chiffon.  Plaid is always sweet on our little ones but it can also be incredibly sophisticated and elegant for us! There is so much versatility with the print that you can wear it easily with for a casual Sunday afternoon stroll with your little one, a boardroom meeting  for the working moms, or an evening out on the town.  Plaid is cool and relaxed yet polished and classic – check out some of my favorite pieces for both us and our little ones that we can wear now and on into the warmer months!
