All that plaid

But no rad dad?


That’s too bad.


This time, coupled with my Mountie jacket, my vintage men’s plaid shirt feels much more polished. My jeans? They’re Mynk.


And yet again, I’ve matched my nail polish to my jacket. And yet again, I did not mean to.


I suppose it means I’m drawn to vibrant colours. They’re like a ray of sunshine on a rainy fall day.

    You can’t go wrong with plaid. I do like this more polished look as well… that blazer is a great touch.

    Oh, and I will be wearing the OTK boots to work. But again, I’m picking a suede version with a stacked heel, so it’s not as borderline trashy as some of the leather ones can be ;-)

    Eva — It’s OPI

    SofiaSophie — It’s rare, but sometimes we’re lucky enough to have a sunny fall day in Vancouver.

    Melissa — Haha! I’m happy to hear that.

    Niki — Bright colours cure grey days, don’t you think?

    Denise — Mountie pants? Even awesomer.

    I love bright colours toooo!!! I am wearing a bright bright green tank today with bright purple shoes, case in point. Do you think it’s genetic?

    Plaid came from our fathers side, I just can’t seem to think where the bright colours gene came from…

    Ah, I love that plaid shirt!

    I’m FINALLY getting a plaid shirt from Burton that I’ve been waiting for, for a loooong time :) Sadly the fit is a little loose but it’s going to be great for winter.
