I said, "howdy." He said, "hi."

K and  I have been discussing for some time now the necessity of finding a good plaid flannel shirt, though neither of us had succeeded until the other day, when I was half-heartedly looking for some sort of warm covering to wear with my loungewear.  The light bulb went off that I had seen a few plaid pieces in B’s closet.  Yoink!  K liked the pearl buttons.  Also recently decided that layered knee/over-the-knee socks are a great alternative to tights when padding around the kitchen and such.  And yes, still loving the clogs.

Oh dear, the Wire is the best written show in television history (and I say that with full confidence having not watched much television!) But the way it's written reminds me so much of a serialized novel (and all of my writer friends and MFA friends agree, at least the ones with good taste.) And my heart has never been broken like it was after the final episode of season 4.

my sister just stole my flannel shirt i love. it sucks, but i think i'll get it back soon. maybe now is a good time to break in my new doc martins so i won't reach for a flannel on a lazy day and have everyone mistake me for a cool grunge chick. i've had my JC clogs for weeks and still haven't worn them. I love seeing them on other bloggers for ideas on how to wear them. the whole look is great!

i'm a fan of the wire too, but since i've seen the whole series, i've started reading the books by one of the writers, richard price. so far clockers and samaritan have been really good! ~joelle

Yayay! I love the fact that you raided B's closet and unearthed brilliance! This may be my favorite look of yours thus far, E – I quite adore the juxtaposition between masculine and feminine styles. And can I just say that you have made me fall in love with clogs…I desperately need a pair!! πŸ™‚

Reply

Yes the knee high socks are a favorite of mine in and out of the house.
I go back and forth on the clogs, but this look makes me think I just may need a pair after all. LOL!
