One of my favourite things to do back home is to raid my mom’s closet (hi Mommy if you’re reading this!)– it’s kind of like thrift shopping, but for free. A good portion of my wardrobe consists of my mom’s old clothes, including some of my most well-loved clothing pieces. Among these pieces, one of my favourites is this twenty-plus-year-old plaid shirt.
I actually found this shirt back in high school in a to-be-donated pile of clothing and snagged it up just in time. That means that I’ve been wearing this shirt for seven years now! I barely have any clothes left from high school because my style has evolved a lot since then, but for some reason, I’m still very attached to this shirt.
I love the earthy colour palette and little tree (they’re trees…right??) stitchings. The shirt is colourful enough to stand out but the tones are muted enough to blend well with the rest of my wardrobe. This is one of my go-to pieces to throw over a simple white tank in the spring/summer.
I feel like raiding my Mom’s closet is such a little kid thing to do. You know… like playing dress-up to feel all grown-up and everything. But who cares? With the way fashion recycles itself, I always manage to find something I love. 🙂
