Not Bad Plaid, Rad Plaid!


When I was a kid, I was obsessed with the Neicy Nash show "Clean House" - hilarious, because I am not the tidiest. I'll never forget an episode with Cassie Silva (Maybe, you too were obsessed with MTV'S Search for Elle Woods?) where they transformed her father's California home from a hoarder den to a red plaid haven. Cassie exclaimed, "It's not bad plaid, it's rad plaid!" And now I hear this literally everytime I see something plaid. Cue, this jacket. It's rad plaid! Here's a breakdown on some of this week's sustainable outfits!

I've really enjoyed this Rent the Runway subscription - it's helped me cut back on laundry, has forced me to get creative with using certain pieces, and has been fun! - Definitely my best Black Friday find!
