Inspiring me lately: Buffalo Check

I am totally inspired by plaid lately, but specifically buffalo check.  I think it is the perfect winter pattern to play with and has a way of making you feel cozy. But, to keep it from looking to campy, I have a few suggestions to what to pair it with to keep it fresh and fun.

1. Pair the bold plaid print with something unexpected. Try a ultra girly skirt in tulle (like this one from Anthro). 2. Mix it up with other patterns to add a layered look. Throw a buffalo print shirt over a stripe dress, tied the shirt closed instead of buttoning it. 3.Pair the classic with something edgy, like leather leggings. 4. Glam it up, turn it fancy with meallics, sequins or something glittery (a la these pumps). Extra: Add bracelets and a statement necklace (like this beauty) to top off any of these looks, and apply matching red lipstick to take this casual print into something way more.

After much deliberation, I decided on this buffalo check shirt, mainly because of the polka dot lining. I find joy in the small things, but also think it will make this shirt more versatile by rolling up the sleeves to show off the dots. 

Are you a fan of the buffalo check print? How will you pair it?
