plaid attack






top: plato's closet (f21), shorts: delias, wedges: garage sale, necklaces: shechele's closet (she gave me free reign over like 40 amazing vintage necklaces. so you'll be seeing this a lot), nerd glasses: charlotte russe

Plaid is being whispered again in the fashion realm. To me, it's reminiscent of preppy middle school attire and on another pendulum, flannel. This chica, not so big into flannel. Mostly because I live in Minnesota and dare not toe the lumberjack line.

I had a rather moody day yesterday. Ever been there? You know how anything tastes good after you eat something ucky like tofu (Maybe that's just me. Don't judge. I'm a texture person)? Well peeps, today is like a breath of fresh air in contrast to my pooper tude yesterday.

Hi Lindsay, I found your blog and have been watching. I don't write about fashion, but I think you might be interested in our blog nonetheless -- we live in China, and for a very intentional purpose. From Minnesota originally! (lived in Hutchinson and various places around the Twin Cities.)

See you around--
