Read in June, 2011

In Pretty in Plaid, Jen Lancaster reveals some flashes, from growing up in Cow Town, Indiana, to her time as a sorority girl during her eleven years of college, to her first profession post-college. Like her previous books, Pretty in Plaid is written as a series of essays, all of which are connected by the theme of clothing. From her Girl Scout uniform, covered in (I wish I thought of this when I was a girl scout) illegally earned patches, to her first job interview ensemble, Jen explains how clothes shape the way she interprets the world.

I was exceptionally amused by this book. Jen Lancaster definitely has a distinctive voice that’s very clever. No matter what situation Jen finds herself in, she is always optimistic. It’s a nice, light read that’s perfect for a Sunday Summer day of relaxing in the cool grass under a tree.
