Mad about Plaid

I love tartan plaid!
 I have a lot of plaid in my fall and winter wardrobe
and I have a lot a madras in my spring and summer wardrobe.
Here is a classic look that I would wear this winter
Preppy plaid and pearls
 I am Scottish on my paternal grandmother's side,
and love that we have two different family (clan) tartan plaids!
Some day I hope to have a few skirts or wraps made in these tartans
The McIlvaine Clan
The Murray Clan
Although I don't decorate specifically with tartan plaid, I do have some sort of plaid,
whether it be a window treatment or a pillow, in each of the rooms of my home.
I also like to decorate my table with tartan plaid, especially around the holidays.
Here are some wonderful pictures of tartan plaids used in fashion and at home...
Love the black lampshades with the dark tartan.

Great photos! I ADORE plaid. Not a lot of people wear it in Texas so I can't wait to buy some when I arrive in Mass. LOVE the earrings!

Adore everything about it. I think we might be essentially the same person on different coasts!

I too adore plaid! My Pop-Pop always wore plaid pants in the Fall and Winter. Plaid always reminds me of him and puts a smile on my face.

I've been debating doing a plaid mood board for a wedding lately because I feel like it's going to be a big resurgence. You're confirming my thinking...
