Tartan has been trending all Fall long, and it looks to be holding strong all through the winter months ahead. If you’re like me you already have a plaid scarf and plaid flannel shirt (or two) in your wardrobe. So when I saw this dress it was a “gotta have it” moment. Aside from its holiday-ready color palette, its midi length and classic, tailored silhouette make it as versatile as it is flattering.
Pretty pink faux fur vest, plush sherpa sweatshirt, the perfect white booties, denim finished with pearl and gem sprinkles, and a pom pom beanie on top…this look is as sweet as it is simple. It’s also an outfit made up of five great gift ideas that you can pick and choose from — for those on your list or maybe even yourself.
If you checked out my last post you already know I’m shopping January’s irresistible store-and-site sales. As for finding deals and steals all I can say is “WINNING!” And by that I mean scoring great pieces I can wear now, into Spring, as well as next Fall and Winter. This look’s key players are this varsity jacket from Opening Ceremony, Madewell tuxedo stripe black jeans and Autumn Cashmere striped sweater. So even on a pretty gray day, I felt like a fashion champ.
This past Sunday it was our typical round of chores before heading back to “reality” — dump run, Sugar House Creamery for milk, yogurt and more, plus a quick check in at one of our favorite local stores, Big Crow Trading. Must be in the air, because everywhere I looked I saw rainbows! Oh…and lots (and lots) of taxidermy. And I’m sure you noticed that Bowie wore his rainbow stripe sweater, too.
