There are SO many ways to style a plaid shirt, and this camp shirt makes it easy. So today I am sharing how to style a plaid shirt outfit for summer and fall. With the reds and blues on a white background, it goes with denim beautifully, can be dressed up or down, and layered for the cooler weather. I first styled this gingham camp shirt back in May in this post –SO long ago already!! Lol! Hasn’t this summer just flown by? Kids are getting ready to start school in many districts, and the “Back-to-School” sales are in full swing. This is that time of year when I start to miss being an educator. The start of a new school year was always exciting and full of possibility!
For the month I August, I will not be buying any new clothes. WHAT??!!! I know, it’s totally shocking!! I am stocked up for the transition to fall (thank you, #NSale), and already had plenty of summer pieces. Not to mention, with our new weather patterns, I strongly suspect we will continue to have a lot of heat this fall. A fellow blogger referred to such a hiatus as a “shopping diet” which describes how I am feeling right now. Instead, I will share how I restyle the many wardrobe pieces in my closet and share my musings about that and other topics. In this post, I am restyling a number of things with a pair of linen blend pants that I just love!
The gingham plaid shirt is no longer available in these colors, but there is a darling green plaid. Check it out here!

These pants are a best seller from Old Navy. They are another version of the pixie pants style that I tried recently. (See this post, with the red pixie pants!) They are a nice change from heavy jeans but the chambray color makes them easy to style with most things in your closet. To be honest, I got a beautiful pair of linen-blend pants in my last Trunk Club selection, but they were so pricey, I just couldn’t justify purchasing them. These are an excellent substitution. Especially for the price.
To keep the look summery, or suitable for late summer or early fall, I added some tan suede sandals. The bit of wedge is just enough to elongate the leg and add a little height. I need both of those things! Haha!
Straw bags continue to trend and you can style yours far into the fall. There are SO many great bags like this still available. Here is a cute round straw tote. Bright tassel earrings give this outfit some fun!

To style a plaid shirt outfit for summer or fall, just add a denim jacket!! Easy, right? If you don’t yet have one (I doubt that is true of any of you!!), or need to refresh yours, I continue to like this one best. And the price is right!
Booties are such a great look for fall and I am loving these with the cutout back. The strap is a simple velcro one so the fit is easy. A stacked heel, even in a lower height, is a great look on anyone and still comfortable to wear.
This cute bag is by Isabelle, which my girlfriend and I found in Charlevoix, Michigan. Before going boating, we hit the shops!! Well, actually, both before and after! Haha! The wooden handle makes it stand out and the red-orange color goes either way. I can’t find this particular one for you, but here is a link to Isabelle bags with some very cute options at affordable prices.
Despite my vow to go on a “shopping diet” I still have some new things to share with you from my Michigan trip, so there is still some “new” to come!
Thanks for joining me on this journey. If there are any topics you would like included in future posts, I would love to hear from you!
