Mad For Plaid (And Denim)
Posted onMarch 7, 2014

Human Beings are interesting creatures.  We are constantly in pursuit of that which we do not have.  Rarely aware of the Here and Now, we tend to perpetually look forward and yearn for what lies ahead, instead of appreciating and savoring the present moment.  If it is Summer, we detest the heat and long for the days when we can pull our parkas out of storage and skip down the street in boots and tights.  The same thing goes for Winter, as we wait every day for a rise in temperature so we can shed our cumbersome layers and finally be free.  Nonetheless, I find myself somewhat frantic over the fact that winter is coming to a close, and a significant portion of my cold weather wardrobe has gone unworn, and the same feelings usually arise at the end of the Summer, as Fall approaches.

Ergo, due to my mind being set on the future of fashion and meteorology as of late, I forgot to be in the present, and fully appreciate the chill, and all its sartorial advantages.  It is a constant battle between what I already miss from warm seasons past, and what I know I will miss, come Summertime.  This post contains both concepts:  things missed (denim skirts), and to be missed (utterly oversized and über-plaid statement coats).  A mix of emotions captured in one outfit.

The lack of light may make it hard to see the sweater is a navy knit and I liked the monochromatic palette it created when paired with the dark denim, and blue suede shoes.  When I have to wear a coat, I like to achieve two things: an overall look that includes the coat in its persona as a whole, and the ability for the outfit underneath to stand on its own two feet.  In short I want it to achieve fashionable heights with the coat on, as well as off.
