Gasp! Did Olivia Palermo just commit a fashion faux pas?

While we have been nothing but oh-so-in-love with Olivia Palermo and her quirky yet polished style, did she push the envelope too far this time and actually upset the sartorial gods (or the silhouette-sensitive The Sartorialist himself for that matter)?

We thought this girl could do no wrong, but, oh boy, this structured plaid dress and knee-high suede Highland boots combination may have sounded the fashion alarms off on her for the first time. It seems we all have our bad days.

Being a self-confessed Zara junkie herself, it comes as no surprise that her gorgeous structured plaid dress is from the said brand.

Known for her experimental style, Olivia chose to complete her look with Stuart Weitzman’s Highland — a pair of stretchy suede over-the-knee boots in “topo.”

The socialite turned to her fail-proof messy braid and oversized sunnies for additional styling.

We don’t have a lot to say about the outfit per se, but it did elicit a few cringes from us.

While we absolutely adore Olivia for her ability to mix colors, silhouettes, and patterns to create a style that is uniquely her own, we think this combination just didn’t quite make the cut.

It’s almost as if she forgot to pack her heels and decided to go with whatever was available.

We’re pretty sure she was aware that she was going to Paris and not Scotland, so we’re just a tad bit baffled as to what inspired this ensemble. One thing is for sure, though — Olivia didn’t disappoint when she picked out that dress.

Plaid seems to be coming back for fall, so we recommend getting this hot number while it’s still available.
