By now, you know I love Black Watch tartan. (My obsession is legit, though. I’m Scottish.) Recently, whilst procrastinating at work browsing Instagram, I noticed Barrington Gifts released a new Black Watch Collection. And you guessed it, I’m obsessed. They’ve got totes ($145-195) , duffles ($225-275) , accessory cases ($42-85), shoe bags ($85), and a laptop sleeve ($100). WASPs everywhere can rejoice, because now you don’t need to make a trip to Edinburg to get your fix. Or still do that. And bring me, please!
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to perceive that I love tartan. While I pretend it’s because I enjoy honoring my Scottish heritage (I really am quite Scottish!), the truth is that I just think it’s an incredible pattern. My favorites? MacKenzie (Modern) and Black Watch, though a good Stuart Hunting Tartan will also do the trick. Naturally, my favorite thing about fall is the introduction of tartan back into my wardrobe. Blazers, skirts, dresses, button downs, headbands, flats, clutches – you name it, I’ve got it. But I’m always on the hunt for a new piece, and I’ve found one in today’s Delight of the Day. This adorable Ruffle Silk Blouse from Ralph Lauren is absolutely incredible. Can’t you just see yourself wearing this, a great hacking blazer, and riding boots walking through the leaves with a cute boy? Yep, I knew it.
If you’re a petite, you can purchase it at Macy‘s for about $86, and, for the rest of us, it’s at Lord & Taylor’s for $109 – though they are offering a 20% off promotion right now (enter SHOP at checkout), so it’s about $87.
p.s. Update: you can get it right from Ralph Lauren, on sale for $85. You’re welcome!
