...which means THEY get to be Scottish Americans! Right? Is that how this works? Do THEY get to wear the clan's colors? (Unfortunately the MacLellan tartan leaves much to be desired)
Also, maybe it's just me, but everytime I hear the term "clansman", I totally hear it with a K. Or three Ks. And when people talk about how there are local "clan meetings", my POC red flags go up just because the only other people I've heard of holding "clan meetings" are definitely NOT wearing kilts! But I know that's now what it is, but I noticed that I have a reaction to those phrases that I'm sure white Americans of Scottish descent don't have. And just like that, I know deep down that I'm really Korean. I mean, besides that being half of my genetics. I know that it precedes any white genetics I have. (Dang it. I really wanted to wear the kilt.)
My 1/32nd Scottish roots aside (which is a little over 3%, WHICH TOTALLY COUNTS RIGHT?!), I did decide to pull out some plaid for this OOTD. It's not a true T4 garment because there is grey in it, but it's close enough in my book. Plus those pants are fur-lined and you know my skinny butt is perpetually cold, AND IT HAS POCKETS *hark the herald angels sing*
This was my errand-running outfit today. I had to survive going into a Wal-Mart during the holiday shopping season, and also Costco, and dear god I didn't know I could get road rage from walking behind a person who's too slow.
Here's what I wore:
- Outerwear: faux leather jacket by River Island
- Top: The Unstainable White by Elizabeth & Clarke
- Bottom: fur-lined plaid pants I picked up in San Francisco Chinatown
- Shoes: okay, these are totally house slippers with a rubber sole that I pretend are shoes. Purchased from Zulily
It's a minimal make-up sort of day because that's how I roll most of the time, but I put on some eyeliner (Younique dip and draw in black), and one coat of Lipsense "bravo".
I'll see everyone tomorrow, and thanks for dropping in!
