So the countdown is officially on. Fifteen days and counting until Christmas. This year I have so much going on around me that I have had to adjust my Holiday timelines. I usually wait until the last minute to pick up a little something to wear for my Christmas Eve dinner but this year I really won’t have the time thanks to some last minute (and much appreciated!) work opportunities.
I had a very specific idea for my Christmas Eve 2015 outfit. I usually go with my fave LBD but this year I wanted to switch it up some. One of my favorite fashion trends for Fall/Winter/Holiday is plaid. I’m mad about plaid this year! I’ve never owned a plaid skirt and I was really attracted to the longer midi length skater skirts that can be worn rather high (to hide my tummy!). I actually found one online that I loved.
Now I was on the hunt for the perfect top to go with it. I knew it had to be rather fitted because the skirt is rather flowy. I found a really cute fitted mock turtleneck in black that helps to slim down my arms and makes the girls look rather perky.
Since I am opting to wear the skirt higher on my torso I don’t have to worry about wearing Spanx (Yes!) and since I am hosting Christmas Eve dinner I don’t need to worry about adding a clutch or coat to my look. I’m going to finish my outfit with my trusty all black riding boots and black knee socks that will peak out from the tops of my boots.
If you’re looking to add some pieces to your wardrobe I have a $100 USD GiftCard to Zulily that I am giving away. All of the info is in the widget below. Good Luck!
