Holiday Outfit Post: Plaid & Leather






 
Target Purple Plaid Shirt
ASOS Faux Leather Skater Skirt (this version is sold out but almost identical here at ASOS)
Zara Booties (old - SUPER similar from Jessica SimpsonZappos style)
Simply Vera Opaque Tights (best ever!!!)
Daisy Gem Crystal Necklace c/o || Love Culture Transparent Box Clutch in Rose Gold (love this identical option too) || Michael Kors "Bradshaw" Watch || Blu Bijoux Hammered Pearl Bangles c/o Max & Chloe || Graphic Image Personalized Mini Envelope Card Case in White Gold
Maybelline Vivids Lipstick in "Vivid Rose" || Sally Hansen "Gunmetal" Nail Polish with Pure Ice "Sleigh Ride" Nail Polish layered on top
 
Holiday Party season is in full effect and if you're not sure of what to wear - don't worry! I'm sharing an easy and super simple outfit idea today!
 
Somehow I went from owning zero plaid items to over 3 in less than 2 weeks! I guess that's what happens when you realize there's a big ol' hole in your wardrobe! I wore this plaid and leather combo to our building's holiday party last week. I knew it wouldn't be super fancy but I still wanted to look chic and festive! My recently acquired Target purple plaid button down was just the piece I needed to pair with my leather mini skater skirt. I could have gotten the red option to be more "Christmasy" but I figured I'd get more wear out of the purple (I also got this black and white one too.. oops!)
 
Next I just layered on some super fun bangles, a crystal statement necklace (that you can score for $15 by using code BEDAZN or BEDA15 for 15% off your order!) and a cheeky transparent clutch. Normally, my credit cards and ID are just floating around in there but I got the brilliant idea to use my Business Card holder from Graphic Image as a pseudo-wallet for the night! Everyone loved that you could see inside my bag as well as a peak at my card case's personalization stamp :)
 
And BOOM! I was comfy, covered, cozy and totally Christmas party worthy. You could rock this look at your work's party or even a neighborhood get-together that's not going to be extremely dressy. It's been an mix of extremely busy days and terrible weather the last couple of weeks so I apologize for being slightly MIA. Hopefully I can get some more outfits up this week! Happy Monday everyone! xox
