Pinspiration: Plaid+Herringbone

I loved this outfit idea I found on Pinterest.  

 How cute and festive would this be with red pants?!

I of course found it a few weeks ago, a year or so after the shirt was originally available at JCrew.  So for grins and giggles I decided to turn to Google to see if I could find it anywhere.  As luck would have it, it was available on the JCrew Factory site.  In a Petite Small.  I'm short.  But I would hardly call myself petite.  I have extra padding that never seems to fit into petite sizes.  J and I are all about signs, so I figured that if I was able to find the shirt, it was a sign that I should get it.  Ha. So I went ahead and ordered it.  It got delivered on Monday.  I stared at it in my closet for a few days trying to decide if I should keep it or not because I just wasn't sure.  I was ecstatic that for once in my life, the length of the sleeves was perfect.  No needing to roll them.  I loved how warm the material kept me.  But compared to some of the recent shirts I've been buying it was a tad short.  But I figured the pros outweighed the cons and decided to wear it today.  Which was a good decision since today's high was supposed to be 40.  I think we only got up to 34.  Brrrrrrrr!

And in case ya'll are wondering, I ordered the shirt before Christmas.  So before I made my New Year's Resolutions.  :)  See ya'll tomorrow!
