WEARING | PLAID

By Emily Beetleshack

Oh my goodness, we have had the most CRAZY storm happening here. There are trees down everywhere, power lines down, no phone and the wildest winds I have every experienced. The school is closed- life is on shut down..

I'm wearing my seriously comfortable Wide Leg Jeans. They're a stretch fabric with trouser styling -very easy wearing for smart casual. I need a platform with mine as they're pretty long on  a shortie like me but I'm slightly tempted to take them up and wear them with converse.

The Bohemian Traders Plaid Utility Vest has been on high rotation lately. I've been layering it over my Navy Oversized Striped Dress, Drop Crotch Pants and Distressed Skinnies. It looks great worn open, belted at the waist or at the hip, as seen in the last image. I've also just added this bag to my collection which is the perfect topper for these Navy pieces.

The original author of The Beetle Shack, Emily is a chronic over sharer and collector of unnecessary consumer goods. In a past life Emily was a high school Visual Arts teacher. She always enjoyed the ‘naughty’ kids the most; the ones who were resistant to following the rules and questioned the boundaries. They were interesting, challenging and funny. When she was pregnant with her first child she could be heard saying, “I hope I have a cheeky child, one that speaks his mind and is rebellious in nature”. Unsurprisingly, she did. In the archives of the Beetle Shack you'll find her tales of raising her own ‘spirited’ children whilst swanning about the house dressed as a fruit salad.

  4. Oh I love this so much - I'm very tempted! Just a bit nervous that they might be a little voluminous for me as I'd probably go with the smallest size. Guess I could always send them back....
