'Tis The Season to Wear Plaid

It’s December already and I can’t believe Christmas is right around the corner. This year went by so fast! Where did the time go? With all the holiday shopping, decorating, exciting events and holiday parties to plan for, it’s kind of hard to say that this will be a very relaxing month for me, and probably for many of you as well. Things get pretty hectic around the holidays, but let’s not forget to take some time out for ourselves and relax a little. It’s so important to stay calm during this time when people are in a constant rush and under so much pressure.  Let’s put a smile on our face and enjoy the moment.

Today I am sharing with you a holiday-inspired outfit that is perfect to wear to the office for an informal holiday party, or just a regular day at work.  I styled an outfit with one of this season’s classic prints, none other than plaid. I love to see all of the different plaid color combinations that you see around this time of year. Just looking at them gets me in the holiday spirit. I styled this outfit around this blue and red plaid shirt, and I intended to keep the colors pretty much the same throughout the rest of the outfit. It is a little matchy matchy considering I am trying to steer away from that sort of look, but I was pretty happy with the outcome. It’s simple, classy, and sophisticated. I added pearl earrings and a pearl statement necklace to add a touch of elegance to this look.

Thank you for stopping by blog. Soon I will be sharing some holiday DYI projects and a gift guide post for those near and dear to your heart. Stay tuned and I’ll see you on the next post!
