I'm almost never drawn to plaids as they have a rural , masculine vibe I don't love on myself.  And I don't have that cute, preppy , JCrew look that radiates in holiday plaids.  Somehow, that didn't stop me from inexplicably buying this plaid shirt jacket in September - wooed by an Insta post from one of my favourite stores .  I still make dumb decisions - years later.  Angie's post from the other day with the plaid top inspired this look: and I finally cut the tags off it and gave it a go.  Underneath is a simple, heathered tonal thick t-shirt that looks ok on it's own if I have to take the jacket off. It's about 5C ish today, so decently warm. Perfect for running a few errands.

I also almost never buy and wear premium denim, and these pair are an exception.  They really don't fit well as they are VERY straight through the hip and waist, and are really stretchy. However....... I have a soft spot for a good kick flare and the one-line return was not worth the effort, so here they are, taking up space in my drawer.

The accessorizing was an attempt to add the edge I want to take the jacket from John Deere territory into something more modern.  No, I’m wouldn’t do the pin and scarf together again as they aren’t the same vibe at all but - I don't care today.  Also lipstick, which I haven't worn in MONTHS, and because I'll be in my car all afternoon - I can wear it !  (no mask needed, in other words).

Thoughts on other ways to wear this jacket?

jeans - Frame Le Crop  
jacket - Soya Concept - 
t-shirt - same - 
scarf - mcQ, pin - vintage Chanel, earrings - random 
fragrance - Coco 
lipstick - Nars Afterglow Lip Balm in Dolce Vita
no purse - don't need one
