You all know by now that I’m borderline obsessed with plaid shirts this year. I’ve been wearing them with shorts, jeans and leggings pretty much on repeat. I thought they were the best thing since sliced bread until I stumbled upon this plaid shirt dress at Old Navy on accident a couple weeks ago. My local store has an online return rack where they put all the online returns that aren’t carried in the store and mark them down 50% off. For some reason, this amazing white plaid windowpane dress in a petite size was returned, fit me perfectly, half-off and meant to be in my life. I was excited about it, but then I walked back to the toddler section and found this:
Yep, they make the same dress for toddler girls. I know, SO cute and SO ridiculous. I promise, I’ve never before purchased a mommy and me set, but I absolutely could not resist buying these matching flannel dresses. Yes, I was totally that mom. Cutest.thing.ever.
I can’t find the black and white color combo in either the women’s or toddler dress on Old Navy’s website, but they do have several other color options available in this exact style. I wore mine with black booties, but I could also see this with black tights and boots if you need a cold-weather option. A scarf or vest on top would also look adorable. Since it was probably 80 degrees when I took these pictures, I kept it simple.
If this Old Navy dress isn’t for you, I found a couple other plaid dress options that caught my eye. I can tell you this, I’ll be wearing a plaid dress (or two) around the holidays this year. If you like this trend, snatch one up early because I have a feeling these will be tough to find in mid-December.

Out of all the plaid patterns, buffalo plaid is by far my favorite. The simple black and red check pattern just makes sense in my Type A, organized head. I absolutely love this Madewell buffalo plaid tunic dress, which is currently on sale for $74.50.
I didn’t have a chance to take a picture of it, but I actually snagged this exact Target plaid shirt dress on the clearance rack for only $13! It is so cute because it is a two layer dress that has black and white gingham check on the inside. You can see the contrasting plaid patterns when you roll up the sleeves, as well as the pattern peeking out the bottom. It doesn’t look like it is on sale online, but it is still a bargain at only $27.99. This one has Christmas Eve written all over it to me.
Finally, I’m also digging this black and white shirt dress from J. Crew Factory. I like black and white, but there is also a red and blue color combo available. It is currently marked down to $44.50 and also available in petite sizes.
Who else is mad for plaid dresses right now?
