Christmas Plaid

I saw this tartan plaid maxi skirt and I just couldn’t say no! Sure, it’s kind of a lot… But that just makes me love it even more. It’s definitely one of those pieces where you either love it or you hate it… Unless you’re in my boat and you’re absolutely obsessed with it! It’s a statement skirt that’s going to be in my closet for years and years to come. I was actually joking with Melissa that I envision myself wearing it when my future home gets photographed for a holiday tour… So let’s hope it still fits in like 20 years. 😜

I’m still on the fence about whether I’ll be wearing this skirt on Christmas or not… We’ll be spending Christmas afternoon at my aunt & uncle’s house and my dad’s side of the family keeps it pretty casual during the holidays. But I’m dying to wear it again so we’ll see! I love how the model is wearing it with a simple white tee and sneakers, so that’s an option too. (You could toss a denim jacket or leather moto over the top!)

If you love this tartan print, but a full-on tiered maxi isn’t on your shopping list, I also love this plaid puffer vest, this scarf, and this sleep mask. (I’m currently wearing these plaid pajamas writing this, but I’d probably opt for this cami and shorts set if I wasn’t sleeping by myself. I love these PJs, but they’re a bit on the man-repelling side of the spectrum. 😂 Maybe just save them for Christmas morning with your family!)

I’m always a fan of wearing a hair bow, especially around the holidays!

It started heavily snowing in the middle of taking these photos… Hopefully that’s a sign that we’ll get lucky and have a white Christmas, too!
