I have to admit my reasons for choosing Jessica were self-serving. I just bought a new plaid shirt and wore it this week, as seen on Instagram;

As I was browsing outfits by Taurus women, I noticed that Jessica is a big fan of plaid shirts, as evidenced by her collection and the variety of ways she styles them from dressy to casual, pairing them with everything from maxi dresses to flare jeans to leggings:
I used Jessica's outfits as inspiration for some outfit planning of my own. The first two outfits below were inspired by her styling, and the second two were my own ideas of how I plan to wear this shirt (or already did in the case of shorts). Oddly enough, for all the ways Jessica styled her plaid shirts she didn't seem to favor white jeans or jean shorts! I guess those are more Aquarius (me) than Taurus!

Some of you might remember that I owned this shirt in a different print (shown in this post). It's a popular one with many of my Express shopping blogger friends because it's ridiculously soft and comfortable and obviously offers a lot of styling options. My kids didn't approve of the first version I owned ("you look like you're wearing a man's shirt), and that made me uncomfortable wearing it, but I'm happy to say they didn't say a word about this one! I think the black and white print might be a little more subtle so it's a keeper.
