Holiday Plaid Dress

If you’re one of the originals who’ve been hanging around this blog for a while you’ll know that I have no shortage of love for a classic plaid pattern. I try to wear plaid year round by donning gingham in the summer and then increasing the punchy patterns more as the temperature starts to dip. This year for the plethora of Christmas parties I have to attend, I found just the perfect plaid dress to transition from office party to a home Holiday soiree.

I can almost guarantee that in the burrows of your family treasures, there lies a photo of you (or your sister) in a little plaid dress with a matching beret sitting on your mom’s lap as you all smile for the annual mall studio Christmas photo that will get shipped off with a warm holiday greeting come Christmas. Okay, so if that wasn’t your background, then clearly I’m just assuming we all had the same experiences growing up in the 90s. Maybe that’s where the plaid obsession started for me, I’m not positive, but what I am certain of is that it is a pattern that’s remained a staple in my closet for over 20 years and I always have a classic plaid dress in constant rotation throughout the seasons. 

When I discovered this plaid dress, I fell in love with the pattern immediately. I wasn’t sure how the short sleeve would fair against winter temps but then I remembered “It’s Atlanta, it doesn’t get cold,” and in a cruel twist of fate that weekend it snowed 8 inches in the city. Atlanta always knows how to surprise me. However, my stubbornness prevailed and off I went into the cold winter air with this dress on (and a coat) and felt like the belle of the ball in this pretty frock. And although I didn’t purchase them together, the addition of these beautiful teal-colored earrings from the new Tuckernuck collection are the perfect accent to this dress. Serendipitously they are the same color as the green in the plaid pattern on the dress. I’ve worn these earrings a heap of times since I bought them and love how the jazz up a casual outfit and pair excellently with a dressy outfit. 

I’ve grown to be a stickler for quality and this plaid dress meets those expectations and more. A timeless classic that in five or ten years I hope to have a mini-me seated on my lap in a similarly patterned dress and matching beret for our family Holiday photos.
