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.
Very Marc Jacobs "grunge"…I love it!

loving the clogs, loving!
loving the clogs, loving!
I love the fact that you layered the over the knees with the knee socks. Very cool!
I love the clogs on you! xo
I love the plaid shirt 🙂
this is by far one of the most original ways I have seen anyone wear flannel lately, wow
I love this outfit… the plaid top and the clogs are fabulous. xoxo
I love your clogs — this is a great look.

That is the most perfect flannel shirt ever! Love how you wore it too.
mom & son
I love the clogs, sweetie!
I'm in a mission to find a pair for myself.
aw this is cute!!! love the plaid, and the over the knee socks. very nice look!!!
wow on pulling off the clogs! i have the same plaid shirt i think!
who wouldn't be! i can't get over how great they look with socks…
I love long socks, kinda reminiscent of the whole naughty schoolgirl thing.

LOVE the plaid (and, of course, the clogs)!
love what u did with the layered socks and clogs! 😀
This is such a fantastic look on you!! Certainly have the legs for it, babe. The clogs are fantastic! xo
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.
Great look on you! Like the shirt w/the knee socks – very fun.
I'm still looking for my plaid shirt. I haven't found "the one" yet, apparently. Still lovin the clogs too 🙂
its great. the boys are the perfect place to find the best oversized plaid top… it looks great on you.
hoo ray for over the knee socks too!
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!
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.
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!
You wear that plaid like a champ!
those socks work really well with the clogs !
You're crazy, your blog is wonderful, don't die of envy, I know it's an expression, but you're just as talented with your blog 🙂
I love this, so much, even the clogs which I generally hate.
That is a good plaid! Loving the clogs too, need to get me some of those…

Wait. Did you change your hair? Or maybe I'm just going crazy. Yeah, that's probably it.
OMG i love your clogs!!!!
Wow, this is something different from you. Very pretty!
I love such shirts. they are very stylish and have a little of boyish touch 😉
Good Girls Studio
Love the way you pulled off the flannel shirt with knee socks! So cute!
Love the layered socks!
The layered socks are just brilliant!
such a cute outfit!! 🙂 you look great!
love the duo-tone knee highs 🙂 they look great with the clogs!
Love it. Quite "model off duty"…
Fabulous look. The shirt and dress go really well together.
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
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!! 🙂
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!

Love this look – everyone does need a good flannel shirt
Stay safe and chic ma chérie,
English Rose x

that is literally like the perfect plaid shirt! and you're making me want clogs like damsels too! haha
ps: the striped dress from jpg for target was really good quality, but didn't work aaaat all for me. and you'll definitely want it without the odd shrug! let me know how you make out!

Oh dude. YES. I totally blogged about those clogs on Monday. Fabulous to see them on a real person! I got all kinds of hate over them. Too funny.
Ooh. I like!
And I really need to bust out some more knee socks. They really are a great option.
