Plaids - Timeless Weekend Apparel


The Weekend Life 









Recently the plaid flannel shirt has made a strong comeback.  Last weekend, while venturing around the land, plaid shirts were dominating.  Perhaps there is a desire for comfort, apple pie, cashmere, warm boots, throws and whatever else creates an envelope of happiness.  These cozy shirts are a wardrobe staple that remains classic and always in style.  The soft fabric, beautiful hues and simplicity sings loudly to the wearer.   Plaid shirts originated in Scotland from criss-crossed tartan on kilts in the seventeenth century and have continued to remain prominent throughout the years.

Yellow Mania Continues 2018

Yearly Yellow with a Happiness Vibe The happy hues of yellow in apparel remain vibrant and strong in 2018. Last year, you may recall my article on Yellow Apparel Spring 2017 published on April 5, 2017.   And, once again, I seem riveted on these naturally sunny tones that are spontaneous, signify warmth and most eagerly anticipated. Perhaps it is the time of the year with the dripping pools of water, rain, sleet, hail and yes snow that stimulates the mantra, "please let there be sun". Of course, if you are in Palm Desert, California or Scottsdale, Phoenix or a tropical climate yellow rays of sunshine are always forefront and center.  For the rest of us, we are ready to drink up a few bars of light.  And, if rays come forth for a  wee bit, we dance, run outside and have an extra kick in our step.  Yet, when the elements keep on pouring our way, it is time to bring out yellow in our apparel and accessories. While, we are perusing our closets, online stores etc., we
