About a month or so ago I did a HUGE J.Crew haul that included some Fall staples along with some pieces I saw as great Christmas transitions.
The pictured plaid shirt was the first thing added to my cart that day because I fell in love with the green and red plaid! My favorite part was how much white was incorporated because it was still definitely Christmas-y with out being too in-your-face. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about obnoxious and bold Christmas taste, but as I ordered this back in October, I felt the need to make my jump-start to the holidays subtle.
After the shirt came in I was waiting for the perfect opportunity to wear it. Then, as if the she was reading my mind, Carly posted a blog post with the shirt as the main focus. She paired it with the J.Crew Field Jacket and some adorable Old Navy velvet sneakers. So, I copied the outfit. Basically to a tee. Because it was just too perfect not to and I already had the entire outfit hanging in my closet. (*** I bought the field jacket a couple years back and it is my absolute favorite. If you don't have one, it's a MUST. There's both a regular and a factory version for anyone's price range!)
I also wanted to give a special shoutout to my wonderful boyfriend for the beautiful Swarovski necklace. I've been wearing it every day and it just looks so beautiful with everything I own. He has such amazing taste and I'm so grateful that he's so thoughtful all the time.
With such a busy week surrounding Thanksgiving I have this outfit in tow because its easy, comfortable, but cute enough that it can transition from the kitchen to the mall to outings with friends and everything in between.
I've linked all of the items from my look below and I hope you can get as much wear out of everything as I have! Stay tuned for my to really take the plaid shirt to it's full Christmas potential in the coming weeks.
