Plaid Shirts and Winter by the Beach; OOTD

Only in southern California can you wear denim cutoff shorts and a plaid button up at the beach in November. I completely understand why people in this state are so fit and active. With sunshine 80% off the year it impossible not to go outside and enjoy it. Today’s outfit was perfect for the beach and hanging out with friends while exploring over the rocks and sand dunces. I never wear plaid shirts because they remind me of my high school days, but when I saw this plaid shirt I had to buy it. The colors were warm and subtle so it didn’t make me feel like I was stepping into my wet seal/delia plaid shirt days.

Plaid shirts are awesome because they are light enough to wear on their own when it is hot outside but also light enough to layer under crew necks and scarves when it is cold. For us busty girls with curves, picking the right plaid shirt can be difficult because they have the tendency to make us look boxy or are too small around the boobs. Be sure to fit the widest part of your body first, and don’t just jump on the first plaid shirt you pick up, another thing to consider is double breasted vs. single pocket.
