Plaid is a staple in my closet, particularly in the winter months when you need the cozy warmth plaid entails. There are so many options with winter plaids. You can dress them up or down and mix them with other fun prints.

I’m not sure when my love of winter plaid pieces began…somewhere between Vera Ellen’s black and white plaid circle skirt in White Christmas and Hepburn’s dress coat in How to Steal a Million. Yes, I had a slight obsession with classic 50’s and 60’s movies as a teen!

Too there is my Scottish heritage, which may have simply instilled a love of plaids genetically!?

Obviously, when I ran across this graphic tee, I couldn’t resist buying it. I love a good witty quip, don’t you? Although I am not one for t-shirts since my college days, every now and again I find myself enchanted by a graphic tee with one of these witticisms like this blue and pink cutey!

Graphic tees are not something I usually associate with work wear, but the two are not mutually exclusive either. As long as the tee is not vulgar you can don one of these quippy shirts for a fun office look when paired with the right clothing and accessories.

Of course if you work in the corporate world with a “formal” business dress code, a graphic tee will never be acceptable. Just like staring at a plate of fried chicken, and someone says there’s only unsweet tea! Simply unacceptable! I think there is a graphic tee quip in there somewhere.?

I love this look for work. It is cheeky, but still sophisticated!
