Buffalo is my favorite kind of plaid.
Did you know that buffalo plaid is actually "Rob Roy Tartan", a pattern that traces all the way back to 8th century Scotland? It was introduced in North America by Big Jock MacCluskey, a descendent of Rob Roy MacGregor, in the late 1800's in the form of heavy woven Scottish blankets. Traded to the Sioux and Cheyenne for buffalo pelts, the pattern became known as buffalo plaid.
This is the kind of information still rattling around in my fashion major brain. I may as well use that four year degree for something. You're welcome.
Anyway, when I found this shirt at Old Navy, I knew I needed to add it to my collection. It's a perfect light-weight flannel, and the popover style and rounded hem gives it a feminine touch. As the weather gets colder I'll add a vest or sweater.
I've got my eye on a few other items. This poncho from Kensie is adorable.
And what about these rain boots from Target?
And finally, the perfect accessory, a buffalo plaid scarf.
I bet Big Jock could have bartered for some beautiful buffalo pelts with those fashionable rain boots!
