Plaid Pants & Motif Sweater

PAO_3299-2198839658-OHi everyone! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I spent most of my weekend at home as I wasn’t feeling so well. This gave me the opportunity to catch up on some of my recorded shows such as ‘Revenge’, ‘90210’ and ‘Scandal’. I am watching the first season of ‘Scandal’ and I am already hooked. What shows do you guys watch or record on your DVR? I need to add more interesting shows to my list.

The rainy and gloomy weather made me sleepy and thanks to this cute puppy sweater from JCrew for keeping me warm 😉 Styling an outfit with a neutral base like the plaid JCrew pants is always safe. When wearing neutral tones I always imagine black colors because it makes it easier to select accessories to complement. Using the pants as a styling focus, I incorporated items based on its striped details. Since we are in the fall season, I wore the charcoal motif sweater for warmth and a black zara bag to complement. The burnt orange belt adds a touch of color without taking away from the pant details. I completed the look with beige pumps that tie the neutral tones.


Outfit: JCrew pants (sold old, love this here), JCrew sweater (similar herehere), Christian Louboutin pumps (sold out, love this here), Michael Kors watch (here), Macy’s bracelet (similar here), JCrew elephant bracelet (sold old, similar here), Zara bag (here), H&M coat (old, love this here), Ray ban glasses (here)

Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day!

    This look is just perfection! I'm a big Scandal fan myself… And I love catching up with my sisters and girlfriends to discuss each episode afterwards. 🙂

    Cute sweater and great look. Funny enough, I have a motif sweater, too, and been looking for a nice pair of plaid pants to rock it with. *fingers crossed*Now, onto one of my favorite topics – TV! Shows that I'm currently watching/DVR-ing are Parenthood, Scandal, Revenge, Modern Family, Nashville, Happy Endings and Last Resort. I have a couple of shows that are coming back starting next year like American Idol, SouthLAnd and Game of Thrones.

    @ Vivi: You watch a lot of shows. I have to try and keep up with you. I am not sure I'm that interested in seeing Nicki Minaj on American Idol. Anyway, I want to start watching 'Nashville'…I heard it is good.@Frannie: Sorry about that, I hope the 'pin it' is finally working for you now. I was able to pin it.@Fridah: OMG! I watch 'Vampires Diaries' too, but I am still in season 3. I just started watching 'Grimm' thanks to my friend V. For 'Pretty Little Liars"…I couldn't get with it.@Abi Toye: My husband watches "Big Bang Theory", but I can't get with the show lol. We don't have Smart Set in the States.Thank you all for the sweet comments. Have a lovely day xoxoStella

    When I saw the doggy sweater … lovely look 🙂 TV … hmmm – I've gone through a British crime phase (Cracker; Luther; Blue Murder, to name just a few), and now I've moved to Danish (w/ subtitles – The Protectors) and Canadian (Flashpoint), w/ vintage American (Peter Gunn). But it's not all crime time! Also have watched Pretty Little Liars … I realize it falls in the genre of "fashion tv", but if there isn't a good story, I'm outta there!
