A Perfect Plaid Button Down

A Perfect Plaid Button DownHappy Friday! Today I’m styling a Glamour Farms exclusive button down. They designed it and it’s made in the USA. This is the perfect plaid button down.

The Mont Clair shirt is a soft flannel that’s super comfy.It has a contrasting dot cuff (I don’t have mine cuffed because it’s too cold!) and interior neckline. This top also comes in Curvy!

A Perfect Plaid Button DownI added a lace extender under this top. I have had this cream lace extender for a while and I hadn’t found a top that it looked good with but this button down worked perfect.

Well, I may be doing some online ordering today too! We are hunkered down here at home since we already have about 5 inches of snow and it is still snowing!

Beauty For the Heart~~“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. Isaiah 1:18

I can’t help but think of this verse with all the snow falling outside. A great reminder of His grace!

Have a blessed day!

  1. I love the black outfit and you look super cute, but don’t like the extender. Maybe under something else. Under a flannel shirt just doesn’t work for me.

  2. Hi Cyndi.

    The same thing happened to me this morning! I am always up by 5:30, but I knew we did not have school today, so it was about 7:40 when I got up. I could get used to that! LOL

    You look beautiful, as always. Personally, I am not a fan of the lace extender with this outfit, but that is just me. No matter what you wear, you look amazing.

    Stay safe. We have the winter storm here today and tomorrow.

  3. The extender is adorable under the flannel shirt…how about a cream down vest over all of it? If you need to go out in the snow 🙂

  4. I got a laugh out of your water bed story. I would have gotten rid of it, too! So glad you’ve gotten something that works for you. There’s nothing like a good night’s sleep. I thought I’d be the only one in America who wasn’t a fan of the extender but apparently not. I probably spent too many years wondering whether my slip was showing and am having flashbacks. For whatever reason it looks a bit disjointed to me. I hope you all don’t have dangerous conditions this weekend. It sounds like a big one.

  5. Cute outfit ! Glad you got some extra rest. Means you needed it, that’s what my Mama would say😍. I’m on the Gulf Coast. It was 53 when we got up this morning. Temps dropping all day, but no snow, just cold and windy!

  6. Well I like the lace extender. I am tall, 5’9″ and these extenders are great because most tops are just too short for me. You look great in it!!

    1. I would love to know what type of mattress also, we have been searching for a few weeks and there are so many choices and the prices, omg, crazy expensive, up to $10,000 for the Temperpedic.

  7. I did the same thing 28 years ago and have been waiting to move back into a king size! Will you share the type of mattress-as I’ve been shopping and comparing and am torn between all the options!

      1. Oh my gosh! How timely! My husband and I went out last weekend mattress shopping and came home so confused. We have read reviews and that just makes it worse! It seems there is no one mattress that gets completely good reviews. We have no idea what to buy, we’d like a King also. Please, please share, ha we’re desperate! Love your outfit too!!!

        1. Ladies~ We have had our king size mattress now for 15 years. Its’ great because my husband and I can adjust it to meet our individual needs. Whether you like it soft or firm, or somewhere in between. The Sleepjumber bed is fantastic! I Highly recommend it!!! Best wishes 😉

  8. Cyndi, I had a waterbed exactly like that for years & I loved it! So romantic! Glad you finally got a bed you like now tho! And perhaps that was God’s way of telling you that you needed to slow down & rest! Love the look today!

  9. Hey Cyndi, I am in Greenville close to NC line. We have a few Inches of snow and sheet still coming down. I love the button up shirt with the lace. I ordered the Cami. I have that shirt in blue and pink from Talborts. thanks for all your wonderful words of joy. So glad I found your site over a year ago. I save your post in a folder to look back and enjoy have a warm safe snowy day!!⛄️❄️☃🌨❄️😊

  10. I am curious about what the snow will do to your church’s services. When I saw the weather maps and saw how your entire state seems to be blanketed in heavy snow, I thought about how overextended your resources would be. will they be able to help with making your and other church’s available ??

    1. We typically don’t cancel because we are the downtown church. But we will see, it’s a lot of snow and the temp. is supposed to be 2 degrees on Saturday night. Yikes!

  11. I am with you on the Lace extender ,i have two a cream and a black and have had the hardest time finding the right blouse to wear..

    Thanks for the idea , really hope it works, Yours looks great ….

  12. You must have needed the rest, so cut yourself some slack….it’s amazing what a good mattress will do for the body, I know we’re looking for one too, we have a king size and while it’s comfortable, it has a large hump in the middle, so if I roll to my right side, I feel like I’m trying to go uphill…..LOL 🙂 Wish we had snow, I’d love to be snowed in and just enjoy the beauty. I think snow is one of the most beautiful of all of God’s creations, I just LOVE it. Maybe He sends it to cause us all to slow down a little and remember who’s in control.

  13. Cyndi! 7:00 is NOT oversleeping!! Everybody needs a little extra sleep sometimes. Can I just say how darling you look in that shirt! The lace extender sets it off perfectly and adds just a touch of femininity. Looks great with your jeans and boots.
    Enjoy your new king bed, get some good sleep! Funny, my husband and I sleep in a full-size, (yes you heard me right) bed. We tried a queen for a while, but it was just wasted space. I am 5’2″ and about 105 lb. and he is almost 5’7″ and about 145 lb. We’re not big people, so a full-size bed is perfect for us. The fortunate thing about the size of our bed is that it allows us to have a large portion of our room dedicated to a “sitting room” where we can read or talk or just relax. Hey girl, stay cozy this weekend and be so blessed!

  14. Love the flannel shirt. just ordered one too. It is so hard to find a good fitting flannel without it being boxy or too tight…and this looks like it fits just right. Thanks for the discount code as well. Looking good girlfriend…keep on styling.

  15. Wowza…I’m loving this look. I think you have given the preppy plaid top a very feminine touch by adding a small amount of lace. It is a great look. Going to GF now to order!

  16. Congrats on the king bed and that comfortable mattress! I love the buffalo check top, looks great! Have a great weekend, we’re getting sleet as I type this!😊

  17. That little bit of lace adds such a nice feminine touch. 🙂 Looks great! I’m a big fan of layering. I have a couple of tank tops with lace, but not one that is sheer like that.

    I bought the cream top you had on last week. It’s supposed to be arriving Monday. Can’t wait. 🙂

  18. I was wondering if you knew of a good place online to sell like new clothes that are beautiful but just to small? I have given most of my things away but some of them were just to expensive to give away since I am needing a bigger size

  19. I would love the name of the mattress as I am in the market. Love the plaid shirt. And, love my daily emails from you.

  20. I would love to see some pics of your new furniture and all the redecorating. I would love to see a few more tutorials too!

  21. Hi Cyndi,

    What mattress did you get? I’m in desperate need of a good nights sleep and am having a hard time finding the right mattress.


  22. I just got the plaid flannel shirt in the mail today….OMG…this is the best fitting flannel shirt I have yet to ever purchase. Thanks for sharing this shirt with us, as it was also my first time shopping with glamour farms, but will not be my last.

  23. I looked at their tops but none of them come in an XL. They go from large to 1XL. So that leaves me out for ordering any tops from them since I wear an XL. So odd that they are not offered in XL. Big difference between L and 1XL. Hopefully I can find another boutique that offers similar styles in XL. The shirt looks great on you!
