Did you know Marilyn Monroe began wearing plaid shirts in the 1940s? Plaid fashion created for women followed in Pendleton jackets, worn by actors in movies and TV series, then was later reflected as the “grunge” look in the 90s.

Kathy Plaid Tie Blouse, Francesca’s, $40.¬†Note: The shirt is named after me!

Swirl-135 Slide In Mule, in 4 Colors, Qupid, $20. Another great shoe to add to my collection, the Slide In Mule. Stylish with jeans, pants, skirts and leggings. Just about anything and everything. Very versatile and a low impact to the mule.

Tiered Tassel Earring, J. Crew, $15.
