I am coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs over this season's mash-up of 90s grunge and punk. For real - I didn't even love grunge this much the FIRST time it came around in the heyday of Nirvana and Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, et al. Back in the days of yore, as it were.

I mean, I always love a plaid once the weather turns chillier, but this time around, I love it even more.

I got this plaid shirt for Tom a year or two ago at Target and have probably worn it more than he ever will. I had never considered wearing it this way again until recently, and loved it. Wore it over jeans shorts, a tee, and moccasins one cool weekend night and loved that look too.

And I maaay have scored a pair of skinny red plaid pantalones at Forever 21 the other day. They are so badass punky brewster I cannot WAIT to wear them.

What is it about plaid, that it can go school girl or Sid Vicious at the drop of a hat? I don't know, but I love it.

What about you? Are you loving plaid and the 90s redux for fall?  

How do you plan to wear it? Don't be stingy - spill the beans!

I'm wearing some plaid today as well. A blazer.

I love the whole bad ass vibe of this outfit.

Love me some plaid. My plaid collection is mostly made up of shirts, but I'd love a pair of plaid pants. Your outfit is totally it!

You and I are thinking alike. I have been wearing a lot of plaid lately. I think I saw those plaid flats at f21 - you are right they are bad- a! They caught my eye also.
