Paperclips and Plaid


“Plaid shirts and striped pants rarely make a positive fashion statement.” 

-the Paperclip helper from Microsoft Word Documents

So I was searching for the perfect plaid quote to go with this post when I came across the above. Who new the paper clip helper from Word could be so knowledgeable, that one has some great advice. That nifty little guy ;)

I wanted to experiment with this new plaid shirt and after some good old Tumblr research, I decided to try it tied round my waist. Casual and easy right? Wrong! I actually had to get Tara to lend me a hand and we spent a good 10 minutes adjusting and re-tying the shirt to sit in the perfectly sloppy position. I have a new appreciation for every girl I have seen working this trend, it's harder than you think. (or is it just me having these problems hehehe?)
