ootd: Tartan

Salam alaikum!

Hope you've been having a great week so far!

Today's outfit features a pattern I've never worn before but I've always been madly in love with! I think aside from pastels, I am a big fan of anything preppy. Come to think about it, most of the time preppy + pastels go together, what with pastel oxford shirts and light brown pants. Gosh so much love @.@

Now now, what do you call this pattern?

I've heard this fabric called a variety of names. From checkered to tartan to plaid and many many more!
So now, let's come to a conclusion shall we? (:

A plaid is a tartan kilt.
A tartan is the pattern on that kilt. 

I think one important factor that led to this confusion is the fact that this pattern is highly associated to Scotland, and you know, Scotland = land of kilts.

lace pullover; forever 21
tartan jeggings/pants; uniqlo

This outfit was particularly inspired by this photo.

It screams something from B for Waldorf!
(if you watched this week's episode, Blair's designs were spectacular!)

So so gorgeous. The blue bows and the scalloped structured top. 
Now, if only I knew how to sew....

It was raining today so instead of a cream blouse or a crisp oxford shirt, I thought hey since I need something warm and comfy, why not play with textures and throw on a lace pullover.

Finally, complete the outfit with a simple pair of wedges.
