Plaid Part II
Ray-Bans, studded blouse c/o Jovonna London, H&M plaid jeans (similar), Mossimo boots (similar on sale), and Olivia + Joy handbag (cute alternative)
I clearly remember wearing a pair of red plaid jeans that I cherished as a teenager. Unfortunately, I didn't hold onto them, but fortunately, I did find this pair at H&M. For me, two things instantly come to mind on the subject of plaid: punk influences with studs and safety pins, and schoolgirl uniforms with pleated skirts. Given my rekindled love of anything with studs (I recently bought 1,100 studs on eBay for D.I.Y. projects), I can appreciate the dainty studs on the collar and placket of this blouse. It strikes the ideal balance between ladylike and edgy, while giving a slight nod to both schoolgirl and punk references. As we move closer to fall, I'm excited to incorporate more studs and more plaid into my closet.
