Outfit Post: Hop-a-long Highlander

#PLAIDURDAY celebrates the eternal truth of Tartan.
Happy Plaidurday, peeps!

Today I share yet another taste of the Tartan.
The idea was a little Hop-a-long Cowboy Meets Highlander; the result seems to be Tyrolean Tourist.


#SHOPSECONDHANDFIRST: This Tyrolean Tourist is 100% Thrifted.
No matter,while out and about, I stuck out like a sore (bright red and tarty) thumb, and enjoyed a couple of compliments from passerbys. The hat seemed to catch the eye of stylish ladies, but the best comment was from the sweet Tibetan man who runs a tiny candle/incense/prayer flag shop down the street. He informed me that I was dressed to "look wonderful" and insisted I take home a box of incense that matched my outfit. I adored his sweet energy, and was glad to brighten his day,as he surely brightened up mine!
Passion for Plaid: L'Affaire Cashmere offers a subtle range of wraps to rally warmth and romance.
 A shout-out to sponsor, L'Affaire Cashmere offering up a wonderful range of  scarf options like this Two Sided Flip/Check Cashmere Stole.
 
Now Wearing: 
  • Vintage 1960s Tyrolean fedora, Jill's Jewels on Etsy
  • Butt Ugly vintage retro cowboy print top, thrifted
  • Vintage red tartan plaid skirt, thrifted
  • Red/Black striped thigh highs, similar here
  • Combat-style lace-ups, Labels Consignment

I love this post for many reasons. I don't know where to start enumerating but I'll give it a try.
The hat, oh the hat. RED RED RED! tartan and stripes and ooooh the boots! and then the sweetness of that man's reaction to your clothes... Melted my heart!
That was my brain trying to process so much awesomeness. So now you know what goes on in my head. x

The hat is gorgeous, and I'm starting to be swayed by all the plaid I'm seeing everywhere! I think I'll go on a plaid shopping expedition this weekend.

For some reason the first thing I thought of was outer-space. I'm not quite sure why but I love it either way!

Vix said...

Buy=tt ugly cowboy shirt? Are you crazy? I absolutely love it! xxx

GeeGee said...

What captured me was the spicy, combination of different patterns and fittings in the same shade. It is so Bella!

Veshoevius said...

Awesome outfit! Love how you mixed the patterns with red, red and more red as an underlying theme. Love that hat on you too x

Lovely kilt ya got there lassie! THat looks like the MacDonald tartan, but I would have to check with The Scotsman on that one.

Penny-Rose said...

I am in total adoration of this combo, the cowboy shirt and plaid and the hat. You are a fashion icon, Bella. You have amazing style.

Megan said...

I love everything about this. I may have to steal this look!

Emalina said...

Wowzers, rad outfit Bella! You look amazing in the red tartan, worn with real originality, flair and attitude.

No fear of fashion said...

I like it very much from the waist down. Great tights, boots and skirt. Cool combination. But I would go more "quiet" at the top as I am not a great lover of too many pattern mixing.

Lovin the hat, from your Etsy store?

Forest City Fashionista said...

The Tibetan shopkeeper was right, you are dressed to "look wonderful" - what a lovely compliment! Great pattern mixing. Who would have thought that striped tights would look so awesome with a plaid skirt?

Sheila said...

I thought of you while wearing plaid this week! Rock on!

Patti said...
