Miss Lumberjack

Top: Urban Outfitters, similar here // Skirt: Talbots, similar here // Shoes: Jimmy Choo, similar here // Bag: Pulicati // Necklace: gifted // Bracelet: Inspired Silver c/o // Earrings: Banana Republic // Sunglasses: Electric

I looked up this week’s weather report on my phone and was really bummed out to see that San Francisco would be in a downpour for what seems like an eternity…but my car could use a bath, so…..

San Francisco is well known for its hipster fashion–and I needed to debut a hipster staple: the plaid shirt.  Plaid has always reminded me of lumberjacks and the Brawny paper towel guy, and didn’t seem to be the cutest of styles but I was up for the challenge to glam-up this San Francisco style.  When mixing a black leather pencil skirt (so warm, so comfortable…can I please live in this?!?) and some ridiculous-awesome jewelry bling to plaid pattern–this mountaineer plaid has transformed into ‘well hello Miss Lumberjack!’

I hope everyone has a fun St. Patrick’s Day day this weekend!  I plan on celebrating with a Celtic punk-rock performance tonight (mental note: what do I wear to that?!?).  This weekend I’ll be traveling to Los Angeles to visit my BFF Paris, watch her talk-of-the-town play The Water’s Edge and celebrate her birthday!  Now I just hope that this San Francisco rain doesn’t follow me down there…fingers crossed!

xoxo

Jennifer

      Yes the plaid colors are awesome! And I think this top was only $9 so that makes it even better, right?

    I never would have thought of dressing up a plaid shirt, but I’m definitely going to give it a try, since New England weather is icky as well 🙂

      You understand my pain Sarah, there is fog in SF practically everyday so you gotta dress for the elements a bit!

    The flanel is anything but lumberjack with the leather skirt – great combination. Definitely not 90’s grunge or hipster at all.
