Plaid







Breakdown: shirt, blazer, & loafers- thrifted,
jeans- Levi's, scarf- hand made

From the time I can remember (approx. my 1st birthday), Sister #2 has been obsessed with plaid. Think Gap-prep in 1995 with plaid mini skirts, leggings and big oxfords with snuggly socks. Any time I see a tartan plaid I automatically think, "That's so Kerrie!" 

So, when I found this oxford at Goodwill a while back I imagined how she would wear it:
    2 sizes too large
    worn leggings
    tall, chunky socks (probably oatmeal in color)
    lace up boots (black, preferably scuffed)
    the biggest sweater on the planet, complete with stretched sleeves from covering hands
    puffy headband & a perm

I know that the 90s are coming back, but I'd like to leave the puffy headbands in the past. Although, the big shirts and leggings thing? That I can handle.
