A recent trip to Urban Outfitters (the virtual one, that is) caused me to fall in love.
Not with a skinny, pretty indie boy, thumbing the leather jackets.
No, with a pair of plaid shorts. Maybe its right that girls fall in love with those who have qualities similar to their fathers?
I think theres something rather cool about finally turning around the whole socks and sandals stigma.
And why not, Stetsons are being favoured by the likes of Sienna and Kate Hudson. And the geek look is something that has now become accepted by the mainstream, but only to the level of polos, skinnies and grandad cardigans. Why can't it step up to goofy print shorts, tucked in shirts, and of course skanals (yes, yes, thats my jargon for socks and sandals.)
This brings a whole new meaning to the boyfriend look, and if its androgenous. I'll take it!
