Crushing on tartan!

For me, autumn always evokes images of plaid and specifically of tartan. Honestly, I would probably never wear it (maybe a bag or a scarf) or use it in my home (beyond the odd throw), but for some reason I am draw to the pattern. When I think of it, it makes me feel warm and crisp at the same time and all cozy and reassured.

It also takes me back to when the mister and I were 1st dating when I was just 16. Now that I think of it, Mr. Indie Fixx used to wear a lot of plaid back in those days, so maybe that has something to do with all my fond feelings for it?!

Here’s a collection of tartan images that I discovered on Pinterest…if you aren’t yet pinning, why the hell not? It’s so much fun!

  1. oh, these are really inspired check-patterns. and i absolutely love to wear those but it’s actually pretty hard to find some good stuffs. where do you usually go for it?

  2. Love tartan – but being Scottish, I may be slightly biased.
    Have you seen Ness Clothing? A lovely company that makes the most beautiful tartan clothes, bags and shoes! Amazing!
