into the wild


Craving a bit of outdoorsy, rugged chic for my decidedly non-outdoorsy life at present. I don't own any clothing like that, so I make do with my plaid shirt.


I like wearing a plaid shirt in my office. It's just slightly out of place. I usually wear it with my black cigarette pants but they needed re-hemming, so a skirt it is.

And Meryl Streep in "The River Wild" is one of the last great female action heros. Angelina Jolie, watch and learn.

thank you for your help lin! i assumed that it was paolo roversi, because of his distinctive style, but i wasn't really sure.

i really like the kind of plaid shirt which is showcased in the bottom: it is really timeless and you can style it in so many ways.

Vika L: Yes, plaid manages to be patterned and colourful and yet basic at the same time.

Alexandra: Thanks!

Marzena: No problem, I don't usually get these things right, but Paolo Roversi is an exception.

I love plaid - this one shirt takes me a long way.
