SILVER, IVORY, AND BLACK MAKE A GREAT COMBINATION

Today, I’m styling one item, the buffalo plaid skirt, in several different ways. Normally, I don’t wear a lot of skirts or dresses, but I must have been in the mood one week since I’ve had several to photograph and put on the blog. I’m also going to be sharing some of the results on the survey, so be sure to read the entire blog for those statistics.

Like yesterday’s blog post, I’m not going to talk in between every photo since there are a LOT of photos. Too many pictures were one of the “would like to see change” comments that several people mentioned. I actually figured that people liked to see more photos instead of fewer, but I guess that I was wrong. I do like to show the outfit from as many angles as possible, so maybe if I’m not as chatty, you’ll like it better.

Black turtleneck sweater with buttons and buffalo plaid skirt

Before we start, I am 5’6″ tall, and I wear a med/large in tops, a 10-12 in dresses, and an 8-10 in jeans. I’ll tell you the size of the item that I’m wearing in the links. Anything that is in BOLD and a different color than black is a link Click on that and it will take you to the item that I’m wearing.

Certain items are from my closet, and they are no longer available for purchase. When possible, I’ll try to find you some similar items and link them below the original link.  Now, let’s get started, and I hope you enjoy this post!!!

    I missed the survey! Drat!! I love your posts and order a lot from them. The only comment I have is that I only purchase leather bags , clothing and shoes. Can’t stand vegan leather! For this post I am ordering the skirt and pairing it with a leather silver jacket.

    I must have missed your survey, however I will say how very much I enjoy your blog. I have probably been reading you for about five years and I love your so called chattiness lol. I have come to know you and like you and your family through your stories. I love to hear the latest on Joe and your kids and brands too, even Lucy lui. I also do enjoy your clothing choices as well. I feel your “chattiness” makes your blog more personal and feel like you are Sharing your life with us, which you are. Please don’t change yourself for some others, they can always look at the pictures and fashion info.

    I’ve always loved the look of a short skirt with opaque tights and boots! There’s something about it that makes you feel sassy! Love the look on you; particularly the outfit with the silver vest. So pretty!
    I’m mulling over the skirt. Being only 5’2″ and a little wider than you are around the hips, I don’t know if the horizontal plain would do me any favors. May have to stop into a Talbot’s store and try it on!
    Great post!

    Hi You have slender hips and look so nice in slim skirts and pants. What do you recommend for those of us that are more pear shaped with wider hips? It would be nice to have some options displayed that are recommended for those of us in this category. Thanks.

    I love all these looks! However, I like you to talk about them, not just list the items. Please tell us how they feel, fit, etc. That’s why I follow bloggers/influencers so I can get their opinion and to tell me about the items they are trying on. And I love hearing about your life and family…please continue to do so💕.

    Really great look of plaid/check skirt. I have been hesitant to even try on a large check /plaid bottoms because I figured it would be unflattering . But the outfit looks great and really appeals to me. Thanks for getting me to think out of the box.

    You are adorable but I miss the days of one or two photos of your outfit on your front porch and a funny story about what’s going on in your life. Now it feels like you are a salesperson. I still enjoy seeing what you’re going to wear but It’s become high end and predictable like every other blogger. I miss your quirkiness! Sorry..I still love you though!

    Hi Tania
    I like your chatting about your outfits. It is the personal touch that makes your blogs interesting. At Christmas dinner this year the “gurls” and I got on the subject of our favorite blogs and I found myself saying Tania says this or Tania does that, and I felt as if knew you. I had not realized how much I enjoyed hear about your take on the fashions you were bringing us. I like you chatting about your life and family. It is an endearing quality that many bloggers don’t possess. I guess you can’t please everyone. I like your style. May you and your family have a happy and blessed New Year.
