What a difference a week makes. Last week I was running around like a crazy woman and I’m so happy to say this week is significantly slower. I know spontaneity is the spice of life but I live for a good routine. Yes, mixing it up is great but I could use a couple quiet weeks to get it back together. I’ve been crushing my to-do list, catching up on some blog projects and generally being productive. Boring? Yeah a little but boring is good right now.
I planned on wearing this pairing for last week’s Louisville game (aka date night) but when I found out it was a black out, I swapped this vintage plaid button down for a black buffalo plaid one instead. I’m sure I’ll be busting it out again since I don’t have a ton of red options. For some reason, I usually shy away from all things red – it’s not my color – but this option was a little more subtle. I ordered it in a tall, mostly so the sleeves would be long enough (I have serious monkey arms) but I like the longer hem length and boyfriend (read: looser) fit. Sometimes I think button-downs can have a weird fit – too fitted or too loose but this one is a Goldilocks, just right. And it’s perfect for layering too since it’s not a heavy flannel.
