Trend Spin Linkup - Plaid, Checks & Stripes

Thank you so much for stopping by the Trend Spin Linkup today! Today's theme is plaid, checks and stripes.  Love this trend so much!!  I received this fun striped dress from the Tickled Pink Boutique a couple months ago while I was still pregnant, and I have been dying to wear it since then.  With today's choice of plaid, stripes or checks, it was a tough decision of what to wear, but I absolutely love this dress and knew it would be perfect.  What makes this dress so unique is the red at the bottom of the sleeves.  I think it adds a fun pop of color, and the colors look great mixed with what else but leopard of course.  Make sure you check out the Tickled Pink Boutique.  They have trendy clothing at great prices, but my favorite part is the amazing customer service.  They also have a Tickled Pick of the Day where one item or a group of items is discounted, so you won't want to miss that.  Which trend is your favorite - plaid, stripes or checks?  I think they are all so, so perfect for fall and winter!  Now it's your turn to show us how you wear it, and make sure you check out the featured bloggers from last week!
