Mad for Plaid

Mad for Plaid 1

While the temperatures cool down in other familiar parts of the globe, I'm emptying bottles of deodorant and lunching on ice cream in the midst of a heat wave. No typos there.. I meant what I said. Maybe the world is ending this side of the equator, after all. <Sigh> It's my excuse for today's bare-limbed 'winter' holiday outfit! I must interject with a fair disclaimer that I came to India with pretty much an empty suitcase (to be filled up with food and shopping, of course!) and plans to hijack my same-sized sister's closet. At this point, I am quite expert at raiding my sister's and mom's closets, so excuse me when the links below say 'borrowed' and not much more! I intend on unapologetically enjoying shopping in my stylish family's closets while I'm here! ;)

My love for plaid was previously evidenced here and here, and I clearly took no hint if you were asking me to stop the madness, because here it is in full force again albeit in a much more lady like manner. To repeat myself from the previous plaid posts, Plaid is a staple print through the seasons, but I personally gravitate more towards it in the colder months. Its only makes sense then, that I dressed up this pretty plaid dress for the holidays! I picked out the brown/orange tones in this particular print to tie together copper-toned accessories, and threw on a warm sweater for extra warmth if needed.

The copper statement necklace and the bow-embellished shoes have been recent acquisitions here in India, and I can already tell that they're going to be on major repeat this season!

I can see this look going from office parties to friendly gatherings, or even as a great hostess outfit for one of the many holiday meals you're hosting at home!

Would you wear this outfit? How do you dress up plaid for the holidays? :)

Have a great week, and thank you for reading!
