The Perfect Plaid


plaid boyfriend shirt (40% off!! I'm wearing an XS) // ripped white jeans, similar here

I love easy, comfortable plaid shirts in the summertime. This is more of a "dressed up" look, but I posted a more casual look with the same shirt yesterday on instagram. This plaid shirt is super soft - it runs a little bit big too and I actually love that. I'm wearing the XS but it's still pretty roomy! You could even wear it as a bathing suit cover up, but I think my favorite look is paired with white shorts. Easy, effortless, and comfy too!

Today is my birthday and it's also my last day at the beach! My family has a really fun day planned - starting with cinnamon rolls this morning, lots of beach time, and (hopefully) some ice cream cake later on :) 

Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!
