Tartan has definitely made its presence the past season, primarily in the form of trousers/ pants. Unfortunately, said pants never seem to fit me right. The only pants that ever really work on me are jeans, but maybe that's just cause I kind of have lost hope and have stopped bothering to try anything else on. Thankfullly, I pulled this skirt out of one of the boxes in my mom's closet of clothes she used to wear in the 80s/90s, but have since been retired. But for whatever reason, she still has them. I wonder where I get my need to hoard old clothes from... hmmmm. This skirt is the perfect example of how my clothing choices have changed, since it high school I would feel way too timid to wear such a skirt, but now it's really nbd. Although I was at first thinking "why am I dressed as if it were the DEAD of winter?!" until I realized it was February, and in fact, winter #socalproblems

 POSING WITH LADY B


not so fun fact: whenever I read Beyonce now, I hear it in a very specific way. The exact case being on SNL when they parody Ann Romney and she's all like "bay-on-sayyyyy." If you know what I'm talking about, I seriously give props to your memory and deciphering skillz.

  2. bay-yon-ceeeee. yes! i know exactly what you mean. I also can't stop thinking of her as the time Maya Rudolph played her in the skit where Prince and Nikki Minaj come visit Blue Ivy. Kills me. Tartan is amazing on you - and that first photo is strikingly perfect in every way

  5. I actually hear Beyonce's name like that too (but only sometimes) and I know exactly what SNL moment you're referring to (without watching the clip, of course!). I really like how you paired the tartan with polka dots, it's unexpected and so awesome.

  29. I am all over that skirt! My mum was a peculiar hippie/rocker hybrid, so I got her old maxi skirts and Monsters of Rock sweaters, which is an odd combination! x
