lit.review: Getting Even by Sarah Rayner

Getting Even Sarah Rayner

Since my last read was a heavy-hitting historical piece, I decided to change it up this time around.

What would you do if your entire world shifted in front of you? Betrayal is an emotion that strikes deep and cold – and when it happens simultaneously at your workplace and home life, it’s hard to cope. When Orianna is promoted over best friend Ivy, Ivy vows not only to get even but to strike…

Fall Trends Plaid

I don’t know what it is – perhaps it’s a mixture of my Scottish heritage and my new found love of the television show OUTLANDER, but I’m borderline obsessed with all things plaid!

Lucky for me, I’m not alone. Plaid is turning out to be a huge trend for Fall 2014, popping up on runways and in stores for all to wear. It’s super easy and versatile to pull off – from a statement piece to a pleated skirt, plaid is so much more than a school girl staple.

My must have plaid items for Fall 2014 are after the cut.

Smart_Set___Pencil_Skirt

SMART SET KNITTED PLAID PENCIL SKIRT ($35.90 CAN): I’m absolutely in love with this skirt. The pencil skirt ensures that the look is more sophisticated chic and less school girl. 

Necessary Clothing Plaid Scarf

NECESSARY CLOTHING PLAID SCARF ($29.99 CAN): Available in navy and red. This is perfect for adding a little bit of plaid to your wardrobe – it’s not an overbearing print and it translates from fall to winter effortlessly. 

Dynamite Plaid Pants

DYNAMITE KATE BASIC PLAID DRESS PANTS ($49.90 CAN): LOVE these pants! Again, the plaid print is not ridiculously overbearing so it’s perfection for those of us who can’t pull of printed bottoms easily. The neutrality of the print also makes it easy to match. 

BLUMART PLAID COLLAR NECKLACE WITH DETACHABLE BOW ($42.09 CAN): I’ve been looking for a sophisticated bowtie for women for a LONG time. I’ve always wanted to pull off the look off a bowtie without having it look overtly masculine. I think this is the perfect way to do so. The collar and the bow make the perfect accessory for a women’s suit. Unsure about the bowtie and collar together? They can be worn separately. 

Pops of Plaid Heels

MODCLOTH POPS OF PLAID HEEL ($84.99 US): MODCLOTH is great for one of a kind finds. These shoes are definitely a unique steal! I love the girliness of the Mary-Jane heels, but the plaid heel and strap make these Mary-Janes stand out more than normal. You’ll turn heads in these shoes for sure. The burgundy hue is also perfection for Fall – add a little plaid and you’ve got a Fall staple. 

These are my top 5 favourite plaid items – what about you? Let’s discuss!
