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 πŸ™‚ 
Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!

  10. I am loving that plaid top! It really is the perfect plaid. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!! Also, ice cream cake is the best, I always request one for my birthday even though it's in October. How can you resist that crunchy goodness in the middle?!
