Around this time every year, when needing to wear a jacket is still somewhat of a novelty, I attempt to fill the void left by long-lost afternoons spent in the park by buying lots and lots of plaid flannel stuff. This shirtdress is already my third plaid flannel purchase this year, and it's only halfway through September. Whatever, I've always liked Ramen, anyway.
I like this dress because it's sooo soft and cozy. Flannel, man... like... how do they do that? I can button it all the way up to the collar and pretend I'm British (I think the boys there do that a lot), or leave it more open for a sexy apple-picking excursion. It's also functional: Nothing and I mean NOTHING shines a freshly picked apple up like this baby. No wonder Eddie Vedder always had the shiniest apples.
