A few weeks ago, Etsy informed me that I’ve made my 200th sale through my shop, the Odd Bee! As of today, I’ve made 16 more. I am so humbled and grateful for the support! I also have a five star rating, with 87 perfect ratings.

I came across this cute yellow plaid shirt from Ava & Viv at my local Target last week. I was looking for shirts for this weird east coast late fall weather; is it 20 degrees and snowing or 60 degrees and sunny? This was a good choice that suited all of my needs. I like the color; it’s yellow, which I don’t typically wear, but sort of a mustard-y gold. It’s more of a camp shirt, which I prefer instead of a flannel because it’s less steamy when combined with other layers. It also has a second row of sneaky buttons so there’s no gap at the front of the shirt! It’s so nice to be able to wear a button down shirt and not worry that it’s gaping at the chest.
