Plaid and Edgy with a Touch of Moon

Hi everyone! Today I opted in for an edgier, cool look with the tie-waist flannel. I can remember back in elementary when we'd have our spring jackets around our waist just so life would be easier during recess when we start getting warm. What a coincidence that Olivia of HerNameWasCelebration blogged about this recently, too- do check out her post on the That Jacket Tying Thing for a more feminine look on this trend and for our share of elementary days! ;) 

This moon phases tank top was bought a few months ago for five dollars from Winners! I remember buying this bag from Aritzia around four years ago- everyone was wearing it and I don't know what part of it I fell in love. So, when it went on sale for roughly 50% off, I bought it for almost $25 and so far, I've only used it as a "travel bag", aka a personal carry-on when riding the plane. It's really spacious but a downside might just be that it's heavy and you might easily (though not intentionally) bonk people's heads with it! Nonetheless, I think owning at least one of these sorts of large bags are also an advantage to a closet, too, right? 














Outfit Details:
Moon Tank Top: Winners
Plaid Shirt: Abercrombie & Fitch / Hollister (forgot- will update!) 
Denim Shorts: Urban Planet
Bag: Aritzia
Watch: vintage
Shoes: vintage

  2. I remember when tying jackets around the waist were a elementary school fashion trend. I really love your bag, btw. Also, I'm glad you were more mature than I was and didn't title this post "I'm mooning you" or something equally immature :P

    Another Beautiful Thing

  4. Love the plaid and the Casual Edgy outfit! And the TNA Bag that you have there goes perfectly with the rest of the outfit! Do you by any chance do any DIY Projects on any of your clothing? I better it would look cool if you added some fringe to the top! I don't know, its just an idea that I'm throwing out there...

  9. Great throwback to 90s grunge! Love the plaid around the waist. I totally remember tying jackets around my waist in the playground so it wouldn't get in the way haha
    And how cool is your shirt?? Can't believe you only paid $5 - that's amazing!!

  10. Awwwww thank you for linking me, Nikkie!:) It's so sweet of you and I may actually be tearing up a bit. I love how you styled yours too... I'm actually pretty jealous about your 5 dollar moon tee steal! I've been seeing those around and would love to add some sort of moon type shirt/article of clothing to my wardrobe. And I totally get what you're saying... I don't usually use big bags like that unless I'm traveling. But it's totally cute and I can see this overall outfit as a roadtrip-travel type outfit!:)
    Anyway, thanks a million,
    Olivia
