Tartan Tunic

Before I talk about this look, I feel like I should share with you that this time of year makes me even more anxious than usual for a lot of reasons, and I’m writing a post about it that will go live tomorrow or Friday. A lot of the blog posts you’re reading both here and on other sites are fluff and/or trying to sell products (guilty as charged) because that’s when we, as bloggers, make a lot of our income for the year.

And there’s nothing wrong with that! But I promise to include more meaningful content in between gift guides and recipes and outfits… Starting with tips on how to handle holiday anxiety.

In the meantime, here is one of my favorite holiday party looks for 2018…

Holiday party season is officially here. I’m going to my first one tonight and I’m so excited to get all dolled up and have a little night out. Ok fine it’s not actually a holiday party, it’s a wine tasting party… But it’s the holiday season and it’s a party so I’m counting it. After gift ideas, my next most requested content during this time of year is holiday party outfit ideas so I’ll be posting as many as I can here and on Instagram through the end of the year.

I’ll warn you, I’ve been steering away from dresses lately, and much prefer jumpsuits, skirts, or my absolute favorite vegan leather leggings. And anything with plaid and tartan, of course. This outfit combines two of my favorite things, a tartan tunic and leather leggings. I love this look paired with gold pumps and a festive clutch.

Sail to Sable, who makes my top, made a bunch of other amazing tops and dresses in the same pattern like this flirty tank, this cute dress, and this classic button down.

Other plaid/tartan tops that I love are this one from Vineyard Vines, this one from J.Crew Factory, and this one from Devon Baer.

      They are vintage from Sweet & Spark (my favorite online shop for vintage jewelry). Aren’t they amazing?

  2. You look INCREDIBLE in these leather leggings! I’ve been dying to try a pair out, but I’m not sure I can pull them off.
