lessons in layering and life

as plaidtober grows older and the temperatures trend colder, sometimes you have no choice but to grab a cozy sweater. but of course not just any sweater: a plaid sweater. one with a slight nod to Cliff Huxtable just for kicks and giggles. and while the morning air is sufficiently chilly enough for such thick outerwear, the afternoon sunshine warmed me up just enough to shed the sweater and drape it jauntily about my shoulders. that there is the beauty of layering. it's not always just for fashions' sake. if i had not worn my most favorite super long white blouse underneath, i would have been most inappropriate walking about town topless. so let this be a lesson: always wear two shirts. it makes you look like a styling genius, plus you'll never be in an awkward wardrobe snafu, namely being naked.

ah, it's friday. which means absolutely nothing to me as i work every single saturday, but still there is a special magic that comes with the word 'friday.' 
however, this is what i wore yesterday. a day that was just warm enough that i didn't know wether or not i wanted to bare my arms so i sufficed to jack up the sleeves of my plaid blazer and call it good. these october afternoons have been an utter delight. we've been enjoying the kind of temps that don't dictate your wardrobe. just about anything goes and is comfortable. i can really get into that.
so with my favorite deep-v diy cut-off tank and plaizer (plaid blazer, ya dig?), i wore a pair of newly thrifted pink patent leather loafers and super rad coated black jeans. seriously, thank you to the crazy people who give away their gently used awesome stuff to salvation army. i deeply appreciate your ridiculous generosity and will always be there to swoop in and claim it as my own.

plaid+october=plaidtober. this month we are mad for plaid. nothing says 'fall' more than (sweating in) a flannel and jeans. sure it was 80 degrees but i made the sacrifice all in the name of kicking off a new vintage campaign for the shop. and i like plaid, so there.
as per usual, all my clothes are vintage and/or from the thrift. i initially bought this shirt for my kiddo but found i could quasi wear it so maybe we'll share it? or i'll probably just keep it. yeah, that's more likely. and i found these excellent bootcut/flare hybrid levi's over the weekend thinking they were more of a straight leg jean. they were too comfortable for me to be annoyed by the noncommittal cut so snatched them up and brought them home. i mean, if it feels this good it can't possibly be wrong, right? and i don't even really know what to do with this little mexican leather purse. seriously, i can't even fit my lipgloss in it. but sometimes you find a few odd pieces, put them all together and have a great time wearing them on a gorgeously warm plaidtober day.
