What do you think of plaid?
Sometimes I call it tartan and I am not really sure what the difference is. Either way, I like it.
I am partial to a plaid pair of pants – I recall so fondly my first pair of black and white plaid or houndstooth as it was called. Is houndstooth considered plaid? Anyway, I absolutely adored them with their side fastening and tapered in legs. I wore them with a black polo neck and pointy flats if I remember correctly and I thought I looked pretty sharp. They have stood the test of time because some 30+ years later I would wear the same.
As it is the year of living casually I believe it’s high time I introduce some plaid pants into my newly de-formalised wardrobe. The plaid coats are also up there for me but they aren’t getting much of a workout right now.
Why can’t we wear our plaid pants with our everyday hoodie? Our turtleneck? Our Fairisle or our cable knit? No reason not to.
I’ve been searching out the plaid and I suspect I’m not the only one to think it is a good idea.
Whether you wear a wide-leg best or prefer narrow leg there are plenty of plaids to choose from. I steer towards an ankle-length pant with a narrower leg because I can wear my oversized sweaters and chunkier boots.
Feel like an escape from Christmas planning? I know I do.
I feel like I go around and around in circles with little momentum; I’m taking a break and here is where I’m headed. xv

*These bubbles are the original and the best. When we first moved to London back in 2000 I would soak in this scent every night I could.
It’s truly heavenly and nothing has changed.
Extravagant? Yes! But I’m mad about it. This dress would look amazing all day and every day.
For the woman who has everything? I doubt she has too many.
**Hint to my family. This book for Christmas, please?
