Suede and PlaidDec 24, 2015
|'Plaid' to be read as 'Played' for the sake of rhyming with suede.|
Plaid is serious business when opting for a combo other than the ever-so-classic half-tucked into jeans look (an undoubtedly cute alternative). I had never been one to lean towards a plaid button-up, though several friends have swayed my mind, if you will. One to the point of having me listen to country music in my own spare time with much enjoyment - cowboy hats off to you, Rachael. When I found this pretty skirt to wear at her country-themed birthday party, I never imagined finding a pair of boots which coordinated so perfectly. Alas, the ideal match; a stunning pair of tan, block heel, pointed-toe ankle booties. Perfect for an excessively warm essay-season (mid-November) when sheer tights are socially acceptable.
Nearly half-way through my much needed winter holiday has shown that, at this stage in my life, there is nearly no holiday at all. The desire to relax and rid my schedule of all stressful to-do's has only been slightly alleviated by the ability to sleep in past eight. Though I've found I'm perpetually exhausted nonetheless. A consistent stream of tedious tasks looms over us making such short days feel even shorter. I supposed there will be time to relax when I am 72, lounging on my front porch, looking back at my successful years as a powerful woman boss with an ever so impressive career. Here's to hoping! Until then, we'll work our butts off for said achievement.
