Mad for Plaid

I recently had the pleasure of working on a collaboration with two of my good friends and I am so excited to share! Nothing screams fall, winter, holiday.... CHRISTMAS... like red plaid. I don't know about you, but when I start seeing red plaid, I know things are getting serious in the Christmas department (my favorite time of the year)!

When I was first asked to do this collaboration and found out the theme was red plaid, you know I jumped right on that! Not to mention, I love helping and promoting fellow entrepreneurs and creatives!

My friend Lauren back home in Monterey recently started a business, His Wear Concierge, to shop second-hand, gently used items for men (and women)! She takes orders for specific items, specific styles, budgets, etc. You name it, she's got it covered! Don't be fooled by the name of the business - she started out just offering menswear, but recently began accepting special orders for women's wear as well! She's hoping to launch a full extension of His Wear Concierge, for women, in the future. In the mean time, all you have to do is send her a quick email to get started!

Along with His Wear Concierge, the lovely Taryn of Pasadena Charm was in on this one! She is the model you'll see in these photos and a Pasadena guru. Her Instagram is filled with all things local!

We wandered around the city taking fun photos and drinking coffee! Here are a few of my favorites:

I had so much fun with this collaboration! This was my first time taking photos of another person (not including family) for a blog post, and I am so grateful for Taryn's patience as I changed settings, walked around in circles, and thew out a bunch of "Uhhhh's", "Hmmmm's", and "I don't know's"!

What does plaid remind you of? Do you like red plaid, or is there another color you're currently loving? How do you like to wear plaid?
