Plaid.  I have never been a huge fan of the preppy pattern until recently.  Maybe it’s because I went to a Catholic school when I was younger and I had to wear a plaid uniform everyday, or maybe it’s because I’ve always been told that plaid can make you look bigger (I certainly don’t need any help in that category).  I received this amazing blanket scarf in my Stitch Fix shipment this month and I immediately put it to good use.  It’s a great cozy addition to my fall wardrobe and I love accenting it with edgier pieces to balance out the prep.  Speaking of subscription boxes have you heard of Dia & Co?  It’s like Stitch Fix for plus size girls and I’ve received some great pieces from my shipments like this great faux leather jacket!  And the shoes!  I just found these great fall shooties at Marshall’s!  The color is delicious and the price was amazing ($69.99 and they are Splendid brand).  Shoes that feel like butter on your feet (and at a bargain no less) is just one of the many simple pleasures in life!  (links to brands below):
