I bought these pants last fall before I’d truly fallen in love with the pleated, slouchy silhouette. A moment of ESP, perhaps? Or maybe it’s just that Husband Mike has always said he loves me in plaid pants, and that fact floats through my brain whenever I find a pair that really works for me. Either way, this pair is very fall, both in palette and in weight, and a great match for a simple sweater and ankle boots.

Plaid is big this season! Anyone else in possession of plaid trousers? Plaid something else? Got a favorite color scheme or style?

Oh, Birkenstocks. I wore you for all of high school and college, destroyed my single brown pair with years of wear and abuse, and wrote you off as a shoe of my past. And now you are trendy. Like Vogue trendy. And when I found myself in need of a pair of on-your-feet-for-eight-hours comfy black sandals, I figured hey. Why not? This Gizeh style is a little sleeker looking than the old style Arizonas I wore as a kid, but just as supportive and comfy. And since I fully expect a late summer heat wave – we always get one in September – these will earn their keep before getting shelved for the winter.

Anyone wearing Birks for the second time around? Or did you wear them all the way through, trends be damned?

Wore this on a day when we had alternating bouts of lovely sunshine and torrential rain, and this photo was taken during a quick break between downpours. Had I known I’d be risking a drenching every time I went outside, I might’ve worn a little less white. Serves me right for not checking the forecast. Like virtually all Minnesotans, I monitor the weather religiously during the winter months. But during our woefully brief summer, I often forget because, hey, what’s the worst that could happen? Heat? Wind? A little rain? We do get the occasional tornado but for the most part it’s calm, clear, and nothing that means I have to pile on the layers or add an extra half-hour to my drive time. My laxness means I sometimes wear white on rainy days. Good thing I remembered my nude underthings and spent most of my day inside.

My guess is that those of you who live in punishing heat and humidity are my opposite: More likely to check the weather during summer than winter. Am I right? Heat stroke and frostbite may be two sides of the same coin …
