Summer camp style ...

Is it possible to not like madras plaid? Surely there's no one out there who would belittle this iconic design. Ever since summer camp as a kid, I have held fast to the notion that madras plaid was for 'cool' kids.

And, now I must admit that my adult heart still belongs to madras. My favorite (incredibly old) shorts below may be some indication of how happy I am wearing this print. I cover the 'mom' waistline with a top, so no one knows that these have lurked in my drawer since the 80's. I just can't part with them.

Madras is a great companion to denim. Cool, casual and easy to wear anywhere.

I'm digging these Tom's madras slippers, too.

Cheers to the wedding planner/designer who used a madras patchwork tabletop runner for a casual wedding reception. Paired with textural woven tablecloths, it would work great for an end-of-summer al fresco dinner.

See, madras isn't just for summer camp anymore!
