Sequins + Plaid

giant plaid scarf

Seeing the NYC store windows all dressed up for Christmas is one of my favorite things to do in the city during the holiday season. For a casual day of window shopping, I wore a sequin tee with a giant plaid blanket scarf. Coat not pictured!

These particular photos were snapped in front of Lord & Taylor on 5th Avenue, which was one of the stops on my holiday bucket list.

    Sequins are not a trend I will be buying into anytime soon – they are just not my personal style. That being said, I do think you look great and I do think the plaid works well with the outfit! Window shopping in NYC during Christmas must be pretty magical!
