Designer Nikki Chasin has been been on my radar ever since she won one of the coveted 15 spots on Racked Young Gun Class of 2014 - an honor that highlights up and coming designers. Then I spotted this matching plaid set by Nikki on Of-a-Kind and I knew I had to share her amazing designs with you guys.
