Sharing is caring!

Hey girl hey! Who is hyped for fall? You? I know that I am! I have been itching to pair boots with dresses, long sleeves, jackets, wools, and cashmeres and all of the things that make fall, fall! To kick things off, I wanted to bust out this plaid shirtdress that I have been hyped about ever since I saw Denise Bidot rocking on all of the plaid featured Adam Lippes for Target commercials!Breaking The Rules with Head to Toe Plaid from Target

Did you know that that Adam Lippes for Target collection comes in plus sizes too? Yes honey! It does! So when it launched last, I hopped online to make my purchase with a quickness, snatching up this dress and I already knew that I would pair them with my new thigh high boots and then I got this sleeveless green plaid number that appealed to the rebel in me!

I was feeling a little boss in the black and white plaid and then edgy and sassy in the green! Hehehe

There is something so effortlessly chic with a plus size shirtdress. Add to the fact that it is black and (I know, right? So much black and white) in a plaid print?

For the green plaid, there is something fun, playful, rocker, and dark about it that I love.

The longer versions of these shirtdresses give me options to play with… by itself or layered- I love options. I NEED options when I add an item to my closet. This is one of the reasons I knew that this style in plaid would be my pick! The folks at Target tasked me with picking out a few Target Style plaid options that break the rules and for me? Head to toe print is something that we often shy away from and add to the mix that it is plaid? Oh yes, we are having a ball!

I kept it simple and my hair would not hold the curl in the first look… so I made it work with a dark lip! Gotta roll with the flow! In the green plaid? Loose curls and the same vampy lip!

I already have in mind the various ways that I am going to make these shirt dresses work! Think black ankle pants and strappy heels, belted with a sassy pump, open over black wide leg jeans and a mock neck turtleneck? Yes boo… there are options and so many ways that I can make this style twerk for me!

You can cop this plaid shirt dress by Adam Lippes, here, at!

And the sleeveless green plaid option? Can be had here!

AND this will take me into the spring so nicely… maybe I will do a follow up post with all the ways to make this work! Ha! I just might!
