Fashion Friday: Mad for Plaid1:00 PM
It’s incredible from where the inspiration for a blog post comes. One minute, you are enjoying watching a movie and then the next, you are scrambling for a blank sheet of paper or frantically spilling your thoughts into your iPhone. Seriously, I do not know what I would do with my Notes app.
I was not even entertaining any thought about my blog when I watched The Princess Diaries with my mother on my last day at home. I absolutely adore the movies, especially Julie Andrews. I read most of the series by Meg Cabot but grew out of it (read: fell in love with Jane Austen) before completing them. Maybe I should go back and pick up where I left off?
Anyway…do you remember the scene of Mia’s first big dinner as a princess? As she sits with the prime minister of Genovia and his wife, we overhear a snippet of their conversation.
“There was a feminist group in Scotland called ‘Tarts for Tartan’.”
“They were a wild bunch.”
BAM! Just like a lightning bolt, I began to brainstorm the post you are currently reading.
At my elementary school, which I attended from K through 8th, we wore plaid uniforms. I have to say, I still miss my uniform and plaid has a special place in my heart.
Plaid is wonderfully versatile and can be sported at the office, out at night and running around town. Plaid serves as a base for an outfit and you simply have to build around it based on the occasion.
