Brrr! It's finally getting cold here today so I had to dress wisely. I've been looking for a plaid shirt like this for ages, and even though I'd hoped to find one in a thrift store, after years of looking, I succumbed to the corporate version (thanks, Target!). Plaid flannel reminds me of nineties grunge and of being a woodcutter in Vermont (not that I was the flatter...or the former, for that matter), but plaid can never escape its nerdy roots. It's also, conveniently, quite warm. The sweater, a gift from my grandparents, is cashmere and also incredibly warm. I'm all about a lot of lighter layers for late fall, because I tend to feel suffocated under a huge coat so soon.

These tights needed a bit of repair this morning. I had cut off the feet impulsively in my first year of college to wear them as leggings, but stuffed into socks and boots, no one would know.

too many colors in one outfit for me, but i love the flannel. I think it would be nice with some medium wash jeans and boots

Love the tight/sock combo. Why have I never thought of this? My feet are always cold.

I like how the collar of the patterned top peeks through the sweater... great outfit!
