Ah, the return of Mommy Chic!

Just kidding. Or, rather, just temporary. I’m catching up on OOTD photos from over the holiday break, and then it’ll be business(wear) as usual in a week or so. But only for a little while … because we’re heading south, baby! All the way to Mexico, kids and grandparents in tow. If that is not the definition of “starting the year right”, I don’t know what is.

What can I say about this outfit? It was comfortable. And I dig the plaid on plaid. Actually, it may turn into one of my go-tos for days when I don’t really have time to over-think my casual wear (read, most days), but still want to look like I made an effort. Mixing plaids qualifies, right? Low expectations, folks: a fine tradition on BCRL since 2010.

  1. I love this outfit Adina! I have that scarf and the same vest, it definitely looks more expensive than it is, I think anyways. I’m going to try to recreate something similar once I can fit back into my black skinnies. Damn my lack of self-control over the holidays!

    • Hahaha! That’s what the holidays are for! I’m a big fan of these AE jeggings because they have a higher rise (i.e. a mid-rise but they call it a high rise, LOL) so they contain the, ahem, mid-section.

    • Do ittt! I’m going to try it as well. I think it helps to have some colour commonalities between the plaids, but this Target scarf has so many colours, it should be easy.
