Skirtmas: Plaid Midi Skirt {Day 10}

Hello friend! It’s the tenth day of Skirtmas and so I give to thee a plaid midi skirt outfit. Now I know I’ve done many plaid outfits, including the Modcloth prim class hero on Skirtmas day 7. But what can I say, I love plaid, especially this time of year. So please indulge me a while longer while I showcase this pretty plaid skirt.

Tracy Reese Asymmetric Plaid Midi Skirt Review

The Tracy Reese asymmetric plaid midi skirt is made of a medium thick polyester blend that is dry clean only. As the name states, it has a beautiful asymmetric cut. It also has some fun details such as an unfinished hem at the bottom of the skirt and down the center seam. This helps to add texture and interest to the skirt.

The fit of the skirt is lovely. It drapes smoothly over the hips. I do think it runs a tad large though, so keep that in mind!

Tracy Reese Asymmetric Plaid Midi Skirt Outfit

Because of the details of this skirt, particularly the raw hems, I wanted to pair it with a smooth and neutral top. Therefore I chose one of my new sweaters, the side slit button crew sweater from Target’s Who What Wear line. I love the buttons on the side. Details like that get me every time!

The gray color blended well with the skirt, allowing the blue in the plaid to pop.

I chose to wear red pumps with this look to add some more color. Since there is a light stripe of red in the skirt, I knew it would make a great accent color.

Using the same line of thinking, I chose another color in the plaid, mustard yellow, for my second accent color. If you recall my mustard yellow and red color crush post, I am already fond of this color combination. Therefore I confidently paired my mustard yellow purse with this plaid midi skirt outfit.

For earrings, I popped on a pair of beaded tassel earrings, also in red. I felt it balanced out the shoes. I then completed the look with my favorite gold layered necklace.

While I may be pushing it on the plaid skirts, I hope you recognize how singular and beautiful each one is. I sure do! Stay tuned for Skirtmas day 11!

Holiday Dress Guide

Hello friend! With the holiday season comes the invitation to many parties. Sometimes finding what to wear to these said parties can be stressful. Well fear not my friend, for I am here to help you. While I usually enjoy wearing separates (so I can mix and match them!), this year I am crushing on many beautiful dresses. Therefore I put together this holiday dress guide to guide you through the season!

Holiday dress guide: What to wear to all your holiday parties, from a classic red dress to velvet, sequins or a little black dress.

Holiday Dress Guide: Velvet Crush

You may remember from reading my 2017 fall trends post that velvet is in style for fall and winter. Well then, what better way to wear it than in your holiday attire? Luckily there are so many beautiful velvet dresses out there. I am swooning over this gorgeous open back velvet midi dress. I think it strikes the perfect chord between elegant and sexy.

 

Holiday Dress Guide: Festive in Red

While a red dress may be expected, there’s a reason it is ubiquitous this time of year: It’s fabulous! The color simply screams “party.” Furthermore, red is one of the “it” colors for the fall and winter. Therefore it’s the perfect time to dabble in wearing the color. From a bright ruby to a deeper burgundy, there is a shade for everyone. Personally, I am eyeing this red floral dress because I love the combination of light blue and red.

 

Holiday Dress Guide: Sparkles Abound

Even if you prefer to wear more subtle dresses year-round, when the holidays come around, you should step up your game a little. Why not try a dress with some sparkle and sass? You can even take a baby step by choosing a dress with a small panel of sequins, like this white and silver dress. I think it is a gorgeous piece with an ethereal quality.

 

Holiday Dress Guide: Little Black Dress

Which dress works for almost every occasion? Why, a little black dress of course! The LBD has long been the reigning monarch of the dresses in our closet. So don’t fight it! Sometimes a black dress is just what you need. I’ve been eyeing this sexy form-fitting faux leather one.  I love the ruching on the sleeves and the sleek lines of the dress. The name is also calling me: “The Witching Hour” dress. So clever! Here are some other favorites:

 

Although I am usually a skirt girl, this holiday season I am tempted to wear more dresses. That’s because I am surrounded by so many pretty ones. I hope my round-up has helped some of you to decide on what to wear. Either way, be confident, be happy, be safe and enjoy yourself!
