Trend Spin Linkup - Buffalo Plaid

Old Navy Flannel Shirt (on sale!) // Banana Republic Poncho (sold out, similar) // Loft Jeans // BCBGeneration Booties via Marshalls c/o (save) // Galian Bag c/o // RayBan Aviators c/o // Nixon Watch c/o // Charlene K Ring c/o

Thank you so much for stopping by the Trend Spin Linkup today! Today's theme is buffalo plaid.  Have I mentioned I love plaid?  1,273 times, yes that's what I figured.  Well throw buffalo plaid into the mix, and you had me at buffalo.  = )  I bought this top while I was pregnant and had no clue how it would fit me or look once I wasn't pregnant, but it has the perfect oversized fit.  To dress it up a little bit and looked even more pulled together, I threw on my poncho.  You can never go wrong with layering (for the most part.)  = )  As usual I had to do a little print mixing so I paired the top and poncho with my new Galian leopard print bag.  I love the shape and print of the bag.  Leopard print truly is a neutral!  I think the colors work great with my outfit, but it adds that extra little pop.  If you haven't heard of Galian before, you will definitely want to check them out.  They have some amazing handbags - all at prices much less than you would pay for a similar designer style.  Some of my favorites are here, here and here.  They have some gorgeous tassel bags too which I am definitely lusting over.  = )  And use promo code GALIAN20 for 20% off your entire purchase through January 27.  Happy shopping!

Now it's time to see how you wore it!  Grab your buffalo plaid, link up below and check out the featured bloggers from last week too.

  19. Hi Laura, I love your blog and your link-ups. It has inspired me to try one here in the UK where linkups aren't huge.

    I was wondering if you wanted to come and share your post. I'd love to have you on the linkup (i'm planning on running it every Monday), maybe you'll find some new UK readers also. :) As i said, linkups are new to the UK so I really want to try and promote it with some great bloggers that I know from US LinkUps. If you're up for sharing your post, u can do so here -
