great minds think alike

shirt & skirt, F21. tights, marshalls. booties, nine west.

i wore this when i was not studying on friday night and instead went to dinner with the fiance at our favorite hole-in-the-wall sushi restaurant. the plaid shirt is another recent purchase from forever 21, and it has quickly become my new favorite shirt. its got that soft flannel feel and a couple of little quirks (that are hard to see in the pictures) like a detachable hood and drawstrings at the bottom hem.

shirt: old navy(boys); bandage skirt/studded belt: target; boots: tommy hilfiger

after sneaking a peek at roz's draft with her in her fabulous blue plaid flannel top, i noticed that we both wore eerily similar looks last week.. so we thought collaboration post! here's my version of the plaid shirt with black skirt and boots! i picked up this shirt a year ago in the boys section at old navy.. i ended up belting it at the waist with a skinny black studded belt for a bit more shape.. i unknowingly covered my belt with the awkward posing... sorry!
