It's mid-August already and that can mean only one thing, fall is around the corner.  With that in mind, wardrobe transition pieces will be getting a major workout over the next several weeks.  If you've been out shopping the latest finds and looks, you've probably noticed tons of plaid in all shapes, sizes, patterns and fabrics.  Today I've put together some of my favorite ways to wear the classic fall look both now and moving forward.  This plaid shirtdress (designed by fellow blogger Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere fame) would work perfectly on those still warmish days paired with a great pair of ankle boots and this bag.  When days turn a little bit cooler I'll be reaching for this plaid bateau neck tunic sweater.  So chicly worn with silk shorts and pointy flats or cozied up with leggings and flat booties.  This amazing wool blend topper will be just right come October.  Try it paired with these skinny jeans, a soft turtleneck sweater and these boots.  Ahh, all this talk of autumn days has me craving those crisp cool days.  Can't wait!  Happy weekend!!
