Wearing: Tartan skirt

Let's get real. It's plaid. And while I hope it's inspired by or created from a Scottish cloth used in war, let's call a spade a spade here. In the same breath, I love how fashion can make things fancy, elevating a trend or a style to something a little more special. Like plaid, tartan. Burgundy, oxblood.

It's just the right size of plaid in a pretty silhouette. The end of the skirt has flared pleats that add a bit of bounce to what could have been a matronly shape. It's a truly vintage piece that fits me just right.
