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.
