Can you believe Christmas is in 2 days? I still have a couple of gifts left to buy and a lot of wrapping to do, but I have picked out my Christmas Eve and Christmas Day outfits. I guess that is the fashionista in me. Should you be like me but you don’t know what to wear then why don’t you invest in something plaid. I especially love a plaid blazer or jacket because it screams tradition and I love creating my own traditions….how about you?


Over the last 2 or 3 years, I have gone bonkers over something plaid to wear during the holidays. I have now collected 2 shirts, a pair of pants, 3 plaid blanket scarves and a cute plaid clutch bag as well as the jacket I am wearing in these 2 photos. I have yet to snag a pair of plaid shoes or wrap but not counting that out yet. I am watching the sales every day.

So what is it about plaid? Well, it started a long time ago. This fabric dates as far back to the 8th Century BC when it became a symbol of Sottish power. Step back in time f you want to know a little bit more about the history of plaid then read this post that we wrote last year. You should also check out this post we published just a few short weeks ago.



Plaid is a charming fabric that can come in many colors and styles but what I know for sure is that I love to wear red or green plaid at Christmas time. So if you want to dress with the spirit of Christmas then I say start your plaid collection. We linked several plaid jackets for you today. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    I love the look of red and green plaid, especially during the holidays. I’ve been eyeing the pants version of that plaid but still haven’t bitten the bullet and gotten a pair. Maybe now when everything’s going on sale….. The blazer is also a wonderful way to go and yours looks so beautiful on you! I hope you’re having a beautiful Christmas!
