How To Wear Plaid For The Holidays

Can you tell I am super excited and ready for the holidays?  I’m head over heels in love with this plaid dress!  This outfit has me in full holiday spirit.  Christmas is right around the corner which means it’s time to start shopping for presents (if you haven’t already).  I like to get all my shopping done early to avoid the last minute rush.

Honestly, this dress is EVERYTHING!  It’s preppy, classy, feminine and the perfect plaid print.  I adore the classic silhouette and um…it has pockets people!  Yes pockets make everything better.

Sizing runs true to size and I’m wearing XS.  I usually get XXS but it wasn’t available at the time however it is now!  I had to shorten the shoulder straps by an inch.  Super easy fix and I was able to do it myself.  The length is PERFECTION and I love where it hits my knees.  If you’re similar in size, XXS should fit you perfectly with no alterations.

I added my favorite cropped cardigan that I have in multiple colors.  It’s a great way to cover up your arms and looks adorable over dresses or paired with high waisted skirts (see HERE and HERE).

Can we just talk about this cozy knit hat?  I have an obsession for hats!  It’s just an easy way for me to cover up bad hair days and those pesky fly aways that have plagued my head after giving birth.  Even Milan loves hats now too (lol).  It also comes in this gorgeous gray color.
