A couple of weekends ago we discovered that a new Express Outlet had opened up on our side of town (actually, right in the middle of our two homes). Among other items, we each picked up these red plaid studded tank tops for a rockin price.

I wanted to keep my outfit casual chic. Something I would wear to work or out for errands. That's why I picked my distressed denim skirt and paired the plaid shirt with my favorite layering shirt in black. I love my grey booties and thought they would be comfy and cute with the shirt. For added pop, I wore my gold necklace (thanks Kellie) to tie it all together. Many of the items I am wearing are things I have had for some time. Luckily some are still available or there are very similar items out there as you will see below.

Kellie's Details (right):
I knew straight away that I wanted to pair this top with Leopard Print, so I did so with my shoes. Maybe because of the small studs at the collar of this tank, it seems to be a natural pairing with faux leather as well. The next time I wear this top, I may wear it with distressed denim & a black moto jacket - in fact, perhaps that needs to happen this week, lol!!
The cardigan is also a purchase from Express (not the outlet) & it is beyond cozy! I took a risk wearing it for photos because it's definitely a relaxed fit (which added girth in these photos), but it's one of those sweaters you just want to wrap yourself in, especially on chilly days.
Plaid Tank - Express Outlet (not available online) // Chunky Marled Knit Cover Up - Express // Scuba Leggings - Express // Booties - Target (old); love these
You can shop other red plaid tops below since Express Outlet doesn't have their items online. Or visit your nearest Express Outlet to find it in-store.

P.S. Can I just say that we do not call each other by our real names in real life, so having her call me "Kellie" above seems so off to me! And you have NO idea how hard it is for me to type "Stacie" on here, seriously, #TheStruggleIsReal :-)
