The plaid shirt is a San Francisco staple. Everyone - from the “Hipsters in the Haight” to the “Marina Bros” - owns one of these versatile pieces. It's perfect for traveling with and layering during our winters here in SF. My red and blue plaid shirt is one of my favorite pieces to travel with, due to its versatility. I headed home to my mom’s house in Los Altos for the weekend and packed my trusted plaid shirt to wear three different ways and save some room in my suitcase.
From keeping it simple, buttoning up and tucking it into some jeans with ankle boots - to the equestrian inspired knee high boots and blazer - the possibilities are endless. While “equestrian” is one of my favorite fashion inspirations, I just can’t get enough of layering this plaid shirt with my Home-T. I love being a California girl and representing that I was born and raised here. Pairing my California Tee with cuffed jeans, a floppy beanie and nude ankle booties is a go-to outfit for me. It's perfect for a brunch with family or just grabbing a couple beers with friends.
