I’ve made it to the second portion of my vacation: my parent’s house. Where, like any self-respecting 22 year old, I plan to do nothing but eat and attempt to coax them into buying me things. Although, unfortunately like all good things: my mooching spring vacation, the brief sense of satisfaction from Volchok punching Leighton Meester in the face (que that scene from The Rommate), the world come this December, seven days of plaid has come to an end.
(I don’t want to talk about what happened to my windows post move out)
I like to refer to today’s tartan as the slightly sad older brother of day three. I’m wearing a flannel long sleeve button up in Malcolm plaid and black slim slacks from American Apparel. I found this hat at, you guessed it, Value Village.
Well, it’s been a hoot and a half folks. The plaid might be over but the clothes sure aren’t — check back for more updates.
My trip thus far has been pretty great. I’ve spent the majority of my time lying in my friend’s bed watching bad tv and eating minieggs which, let’s be serious, is a day well spent in anyone’s book. Although, I am sad that seven days of plaid is nearing an end, as I’m sure you all are as well. But such a day has not yet arrived so let us pay thanks for today’s plaid, elbow pads and all.
(sorry that these pictures are a little of focus, can’t have your plaid and eat it too)
This elbow padded beauty, a vintage Pendleton, came from Elsie’s Clothing (if you haven’t realized you should go there, realize now — it’s a gold mind). Pants are American Apparel mustard slim slacks, as is the flat edge brown leather belt. This plaid is simple and one of my favorites. I’m a sucker for elbow safety. Enjoy your, hopefully, tartan filled Saturday night folks.
I’m about to get on a plane to fly back home to Newfoundland which feels a little too much like sitting on pee in the early morning and not enough like a vacation. But, not all is lost, I’ll be visiting some friends while I’m there and luckily they love plaid as much as I do. Down side: this post is a little skimpy due to time constraints. Also, as you can probably tell, little effort when into this outfit. Voila, day five.
This plaid hails from Value Village, which at this point I’m sure is a surprise to no one. Underneath is a loose neck tee in athletic grey from American Apparel and my jeans are H&M. Happy Friday party starters.
Things I realized today: I am a horrible person when I’m hungry, it turns out hot coffee is no friend of my crotch and if left alone road salt will eat away at your shoes and your soul. On a side note, it’s amazing the things you’ll find when you uncuff your pants at the end of the day i.e. today I found the key to my mailbox. Awesome right?
This tartan comes to you all the way from Value Village. My jacket is vintage Member’s Only but you can probably grab one very similar at Urban Outfitters. This cardigan is a tri-blend rib cardigan from American Apparel in athletic grey. My jeans are from back in the hay day and I couldn’t even guess where I got them. And last but certainly not least, these shoes are vintage Wrangler which I got at local Elsie’s Clothing.
