Sometimes I feel bad for Thanksgiving. Its time in the sun is so brief before the Christmas music and decorations dominate the scene. Not that I’m any help… I fully admit to putting up my Christmas tree and shopping for my holiday looks immediately come Black Friday.
I mean come on, a girl’s gotta plan right? You don’t just need a Christmas Day outfit. You have Christmas Eve. And your work party. And that get-together with your friends. And a gift exchange with your boo… You can’t blame me for wanting a full month to prepare for the festivities! So for the next few weeks, I’m going to be sharing some holiday inspiration for those of you who like to plan ahead like me.
Shirt: Chaps (similar) // Skirt: Express (new version) // Necklace: Purple Peridot // Tights: Ann Taylor // Heels: Aldo (similar) // Clutch: Coach (loving this) // Bracelets: Stella & Dot and Lizzibeth (similar) // Watch: Michael Kors (love) // Ring: Forever 21 (cute option)
Today’s ‘mad for plaid’ lookbook gives this cozy flannel top a dressy twist. I love the rich festive colors and their ‘home for the holidays’ feel, but wanted to class up the look by pairing it with black tights, my favorite midi, and a little bit of bling!
A look like this would be perfect for a friends’mas celebration or a holidate with your man. It checks all the boxes. It’s festive and cute. Dressy, yet current. It allows you to celebrate the season without an ugly sweater or looking like you’re going to your fifth grade class Christmas pageant. It’s the holiday outfit for the modern, working girl.
