Plaid About You- Pt. 3


I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas, I know that I did. As you know, my family celebrates on Christmas Eve, but today I was able to celebrate with my friend that I refer to as my big sister. It's always good to have people you can count on no matter how long it's been since you've talked/seen each other. There was good conversation, good food, and good drinks.  As festive as today was I chose to wear yet another plaid outfit.

        Blazer: Thrifted// Shirt: TJ Maxx// Pants: Gap// Belt: American Eagle// Watch: Nordstrom// Bracelet: Juicy Couture// Earrings and Necklace: F21

When I first saw the plaid pants, I knew I had to have them. Unfortunately, they sold out and I was left searching for them. The first place I looked was the website but they weren't there. Luckily living in the DMV has taught me to check another mall, so I just knew that I would accomplish my mission and find them . And just like that... they were mine, and on sale (when I want something, I aim to get it). There is also a story behind the blazer, I found a nice navy blue Ralph Lauren blazer while thrifting, it was way too big so I tried to get it altered. However, the price for the alteration (re sized and several missing buttons) was like 5 times the price of the actual cost . I ended up giving that one away and finding this one in the kids section. I was able to get all the buttons (which are Ralph Lauren buttons) sewn on for little to nothing (can you say budget savvy).

My friend's house is perfect!!!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight!!!
