Plaid Shirts and Blue Jeans

It's starting to get pretty cold up on the mountains at night, I think we are going to start having to use the wood stove again. I love having a wood stove, there is just something nicer about having to lug down wood and keep it going rather than just flipping a switch on a thermometer. Now don't get me wrong, when we wake up in the morning and the house is super cold because the fire went out in the middle of the night, I will curse the wood stove for not have a little switch haha. 
I feel like once fall hits I go into plaid overdrive. There is just something about the cool weather making me want to rock some plaid and boots, but I have a feeling most people feel that way too, hehe. I absolutely love this shirt, but I have a little bit of a problem with button up shirts. See, my boobs are kind of huge and just hate being contained in shirts with buttons, haha. It's one of the most frustrating things to me, because shirts fit perfectly everywhere else except for on the ladies, but if I size up I am just swimming everywhere else. I usually just wear a shirt underneath just incase the ladies decided they are tired of being in the shirt, haha.

jeans // Urban Outfitters (years ago)
shoes // Bass
So I actually only got one photo of the full outfit because as Will was taking these photos for me a truck was coming up the road. One car can hardly fit on the road, so we quickly ran back to our car and drove back up to our place. We hardly ever see anyone else driving up the road, but the one time we stop to do some photos of course there's a truck driving up. Just my luck I guess, haha.

  1. Love the plaid! I totally go into plaid overdrive in the fall, too! In fact I'm wearing it in today's blog post! I will probably wear it to work today, too!

  2. The ladies in my family have suffered this button-up fate for as long as we can remember! My grandma refers to it as "Gap-osis" haha

  3. Plaid and blue jeans is where it's at this fall. I'm all about comfy plaids :) You look lovely!

  4. The sun streaming through your hair is GORGEOUS in these photos. So pretty. I love fall and plaid and jeans and you! xo

  5. Yesss more plaid and jeans! :D I love plaid shirts and want so many more but I have the same problem haha. I got one in a size up but it's not even possible to button it up without it looking all weird and stretched

  6. I love your shirt, and I over wear plaid so much in the colder months too!

  7. These photos are so beautiful, you look great!

  8. You look so great in plaid against the green location and love your glasses! :) Aw, the bad luck also follows us when taking pictures in the middle of the roads :) :)

  9. Love the plaid. Love that it's a more casual outfit post. I don't make many outfit posts because I feel I need to dress up for you ladies to do that. Been thinking about posting some more photos of what I actually wear. Just to show people the real me not the blogger me. I also have the same problem button up shirts. Now I go for the size down and don't button the button s where it starts to stretch. My friend Jenny once said there comes a point when you get sick of trying to squeeze them in and cover them up. I reached that point last year. Still a bit self conscious about it but my clothes do look better. Maybe I should try and size down some mens shirts to correctly fit me.

  10. Love, love, love your boots. Perfect with the plaid. I grew up with a wood stove and definitely miss the coziness since we just use the ol' thermostat around here. We even have a fireplace but have never gotten around to getting it cleaned and using it- lame :)

  11. Yay! I totally missed this, as I've been away from the blog world a lot lately. But I'm glad you received it and that you like it. I had fun putting them together for each of you!
    I can't wait to see how you fill it in. xox

  12. I'm wearing this exact shirt right now. :) Love flannel--it's so cozy! Also, I'm insanely jealous that you have a wood burning stove! I grew up with one, and they're just the homiest little things.


Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello! I love reading each and every comment!
