Plaid and Stars

On our recent visit to New York, my parents and I visited Beacon’s Closet, a trendy, second-hand shop with a few locations around town. My dad got a great Hawaiian shirt, my mom bought a velvet top, and she found me this Yves Saint Laurent star appliqué t-shirt.

Top: YSL via Beacon’s Closet
Pants: LEI
Pleather boots: Coconuts via swapped
Scarf: Fred Meyer

The stars on the t-shirt are tone-on-tone so it didn’t seem too busy to mix patterns. I took a chance by adding a scarf with elephant motif. The reason it’s not too overpowering is because the color palette is minimal. Sand, wine and black.

After a dry summer with dormant grass (I had to mow only the weeds), my grass finally turned green and started to grow. Now that it’s cooler, the grass isn’t growing, but it’s still green. Perfect! I’m waiting for the last of the leaves to fall off this tree so I can add a single, red Christmas ornament–an homage to the Charlie Brown Christmas tree!

  1. Great combination, the wine adds a dash of colour. It was fun searching through the racks and I loved that top as soon as I spotted it, looks good on you! I love your hair. Is that where we got our honeycomb necklaces?

    Can’t wait to see your Charlie Brown tree with the single ornament, but by the looks of it, I wonder if the tree with be bare by Christmas. ❤

    • Thank you! It was a lot of fun looking for unique items. I’m glad you spotted this top! We got the top in the Brooklyn (Park Slope) location and the honeycomb necklaces in the Manhattan store (on 10th?).

      You’re right about the tree–it’s still not bare!

  2. Oh I really like your top! And those boots are fantastic too! Where are the boots from? 🙂

  3. What a great find! The color & print of your scarf is so pretty too.

    Thank you for sharing on TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you Thursday.
