christmas tartan skirt

Plaid + Scallops. I don’t think I could dream up a more perfect Christmasy combination if I tried! If you know of my love for classic, preppy pieces, it shouldn’t surprise you that I am head over riding boots in love with this perfect Christmas Tartan skirt from Vineyard Vines.bVVSkirt - 1

I’ve received a few questions about what I’ll be wearing for Christmas eve (my family always heads to church and then straight to a Mexican tamale dinner) and I’m happy to say you’re looking at it!

Depending on the weather… as it’s been dishearteningly warm here in Dallas lately… I might throw on tights and a festive red sweater to make it a little more winter friendly. Also debating on whether or not I’ll swap out the riding boots for my favorite pair of lace-up heels. Decisions, decisons!

Luckily, I know I’ll definitely have this beautiful green coat to keep me warm. Deep, hunter green is one of my favorite shades of all, and I love how it ties the coat, skirt and bag together! I actually purchased this Sandro coat on my recent trip to Paris. While it’s sold out in green, this J.Crew style is incredibly similar with a much friendlier price tag!

Have you decided what you’ll be wearing to celebrate Christmas in? I want to hear!

Love from Texas,

  2. I am IN LOVE with all things plaid and all things scalloped, and to put them together? I’ve died and gone to heaven. Maybe I’ll splurge so I have a cute new outfit for the holidays!

    I love the scallop detail! This skirt is too adorable! I think I am going to wear a burgundy swing dress and Christmas-like cardigan!

    I love that skirt! I would definitely buy that if I could try it on before buying. It’s so cute on you. I’ll probably be wearing an oversized teal sweater with leggings and boots.. so fashion forward, lol!!
