The Perfect Plaid Skirt + Afternoon Tea





My favorite season has finally arrived in my favorite city. It’s fall in London!

We stumbled upon this yellow spot of sunshine on our way for afternoon tea. The wind swirled around us as we tried to snap a few pictures…my hair was the only thing to object. Brisk fall days in London…so irresistible, I couldn’t help but twirl around a bit!

Speaking of irresistible…the tea and treats we ordered at the oh-so-photogenic Gelataria 3BIS were wonderful. While this spot isn’t known for it’s tea as much as it’s generously filled gelato-crêpes, my cup of English Breakfast was enough to bring us back another day.

Whether you’re headed to class, to work, or out to enjoy the afternoon…taking on the day is always 100x better when you’re wearing the perfect plaid skirt.

Plaid, pleats, the prefect length…all wrapped into one!

I paired it with a lady-like collar (last seen here), opaque tights, black booties, and my go-to black trench. Shop my look below…

How would you style your perfect plaid skirt? Where would you take it out for a spin?
