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

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.

PS I was so pleased to read how many of you are fans of The Wire!  Omar is one of my favorite characters on a television show in a long while.

Fashion Therapist said...

A good plaid shirt is a neccessity! My husband watches The Wire on and off. He likes it but is too committed to other shows to catch up to speed.

Cindy Whitehead said...

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.

PS--Did so much Wire rambling, I forgot to say I love your clogs!

Dream Sequins said...

Damn girl- loving those clogs! I wanted to buy a pair, and there you go rocking them hard with the OTK socks! Loooove love LOVE.

Daphne said...

so cute!!!!!!!

Nathalie said...

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!

Lucy Marmalade said...

You wear that plaid like a champ!

Fabulous look. The shirt and dress go really well together.

theowlsarenotwhattheyseem said...

i love the dressy/grunge look you have going on! the flannel shirt is so cute. and i like your idea about layering OTK socks.

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

Erika said...

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!! :)

alixrose said...

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!

English Rose ♥ said...

Love this look - everyone does need a good flannel shirt

Stay safe and chic ma chérie,
