I’ve always been a sucker for taking a “fancy” piece of clothing and pairing it with something unexpected. And what is more unexpected and decidedly un-fancy than a plaid button down? I mean, my dad wears one of these shirts every single day of his life! (Hey, Dad!) A lot of times when I am perusing Pinterest at night I find images of the sequin pants that were all the rage last year, paired with a simple tee, or a skirt similar to this with a chambray top, and I love that! It’s something you don’t see everyday, and it’s not a look I see around in my small town life. I can envision this skirt paired with both of those items and worn year round. (I WILL have a knotted, basic grey tee moment in this skirt when it warms up…how cute would that be?)
I adore wearing something sparkly and shiny this time of year in particular, because when else can you get away with it and not get a weird side eye look? I envision this for a holiday work party, where you want to stand out a little yet still be covered up and modest. It has a lady-like vibe with the cut of the skirt, but still says, “Hey, I’m fun,” paired with the plaid top. (At least I HOPE that’s what it conveys, ha!)
On that note, I wanted to wish my readers a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday season! I am taking the next week off of blogging to spend time with my family, but I will be back with a vengeance for the New Year. I have some AWESOME things planned, I promise;) Thanks again for coming back daily to read, and for being such a special part of my life.
