Plaid on Dots on Stripes, Oh My!

Does it even get more Fall then this outfit? I love print mixing but when you pair more then two prints at a time, it can get a little tricky. Lucky, plaid on dots on stripes seems to pair effortlessly while somehow not appearing too busy. I think the trick was keeping it all in the same color house. All three prints have black in them and that is why the pairing wasn't over-the-top. 

Like the color black in the three prints, I used the other colors in the main parts of my outfit to pull in the accessory colors. I used the red in the scarf to aid in pairing the boots and lip color. The mustard bag was my unexpected pop of color, but just like the changing trees around us, yellow and red just go together. In the end I was a bit unsure of this pairing but I loved wearing it and looking back a the photos I realize going with my gut paid off. No guts, no glory, right?!
