It's Like Looking Down The Barrel Of A Gun
"Well, now then, Mardy Bum. I've seen your frown and it's like looking down the barrel of a gun, and it goes off . . . Then out come all these words." --Arctic Monkeys
My favorite band of all time is Arctic Monkeys -- an indie rock band from Sheffield. I first discovered them back in 2005 and I've grown attached to them ever since. One of the first songs that I've ever heard from them is "Mardy Bum", and though it has been 9 years since I first listened to it, it's still one of my favorite tracks. Every time I hear it, I get a feeling of nostalgia. You know that bittersweet feeling when you're both happy and sad? I guess it's because hearing the song sort of transports me back to the old days.

That's why when I found out that an Instagram store called Teen Idle was selling customized plaid shirts, I immediately knew that I wanted "Mardy Bum" written at the back.
This plaid shirt has already become a favorite item of mine. I chose to go for a more trendier look today (think "casual glam") and chose to pair it with a graphic tee and gold leggings. What do you think of this look? I always love reading your comments and always appreciate your insights.
