Mad for Plaid

plaid holiday outfit

When I saw Hallie’s plaid skirt a few weeks ago, I knew I needed to borrow it for the holidays! It’s just so darn cute. And oh-so-festive! 😍 There’s nothing I love more than dressing up this time of year… Even if it’s just for a casual family get-together, the usual weekend brunch with your girlfriends, or to the office. This is the one month of the year where it’s totally appropriate to be dressed in your holiday best more often than not! Be sure to check out corals + cognacs today because Hallie’s styling her plaid skirt, too. #twinning

Sadly, this giant bow belt isn’t available this year. (I bought mine last winter!) It seems like it comes on this dress, but I can’t find it anywhere for sale on it’s own. So I found some similar styles for you because I know at least a few of you are going to be on a mad hunt for a giant bow belt. I mean, it’s kind of the best thing ever… Such a fun addition to almost any skirt or dress! Here are a few that I found…
