Plaid and Flares

plaid and flares

I can’t help but think of Joanna telling off Peter in Office Space when ever I hear the word ‘flair’ (or ‘flare’ because, you know, they sound the same). “Yeah. You know what, yeah, I do. I do want to express myself, okay. And I don’t need 37 pieces of flair to do it.” Amen Joanna, less is more. At least that’s how I’ve been feeling lately as I’ve found myself taking a much more minimalistic approach to dress. Minimalistic and practical where practical means nursing-friendly (ie: button downs are King).

I love the colors of this top almost as much as I love Fall. Paired with these flared jeans (which btw, are soft as pajama pants) and boots it makes a great Fall in LA ensemble. Just warm enough for 80-degree temps. For sartorial reasons, I’m totally looking forward to cooler weather here. Bring on the layers!
