Tartan Time



Tartan jacket: zipia.net (old)
Blouse: zipia.net (old)
Mustard shorts: Gmarket (old)
Hat: Cotton On
Bag: Forever New
Shoes: Nine West

This tartan (or 'plaid', for the Americans!) olive green jacket is always a favourite of mine! I know at first glance tartan can seem so unappealing and outdated...I mean when I was first introduced to tartan as fashion I could only think of Scottish men and their swishing kilts. But if you scour through pop culture or browse a few magazines you can see that tartan is actually super versatile! You can do 90's preppy (and btw 90's fashion is making a huge comeback!) with a tartan miniskirt a la Clueless, or anarchist punk with red tartan pants, or maybe a little grandpa chic like how I did my outfit :) 

And yes, say hello again to my beloved burgundy bowler hat. What can I say, I just love it way too much :) A black bowler hat actually just came in the mail for me and in fact, I'm wearing it as I type. Plopping a cute, snug hat on your head is the key to a happy day.

  1. Oh my, this must be one of my favourite outfits, how do you do it.. if I paired something like that in my wardrobe then I'll look like a frumpy nanny. But you make it look so cute and chic! I remember this blazer from your older outfits, it's nice to see you 'recycling' pieces :3 Haha it is so 'Clueless', don't we all wish to have Alicia Silverstone's computer wardrobe dress us every day?! Hats are underrated, more hats and power to you Izzy!

  62. The mini tartan jacket is so cute XD Though, if I wore it…it wouldn't be considered "mini" anymore LOL Several years ago, I was obsessed with Tartan! Everything in my closet were all tartan patterned lol I never cared if it was in fashion or not, it's best to wear whatever you like :)
