OOTD :: of impromptu drills and British overload





As I write this post, I have yet to see the second part of the Doctor Who season opener. I had planned on doing a full retrospective on my thoughts and reactions to the episode, but the best laid plans of mice and men, eh?

Instead, then, let’s talk clothes. I feel we haven’t done that in a while. I especially want to point out key elements of today’s OOTD even if it’s so unabashedly British, it probably needs no explanation.

First, I need to admit that this was a last-minute addition to the week’s pre-made outfits. I had a lovely homage to Rose planned for today, but I remembered that we’d be doing a shelter in place drill and I’d be on the floor for a good part of one block. So trousers it had to be.

And then I remembered that this Friday is Plaidurday, and I could definitely do a pre-celebration with this perfect pair of plaid trousers that really needed more exposure anyway. As soon as I’d committed to the trousers, the remembering reared its head again because this post.

So, Plaidurday = plaid trousers = British fashion = TARDIS Tuesday.

At that point, I just decided to go whole hog with Chelsea boots, a punk-ish longline vest and my Union Jack pendant. Does it look almost costume-y? Sure. Do I care? Not so much. It’ll still be up in the 90s, but at least I can continue pretending that it’s truly fall in my British swag.

And you, my friend? Got anything British, blue or Doctor Who? Do click on the blue froggy and tell…
