how we wore it // holiday plaid

can you believe christmas is only a few weeks away?
the holidays are my favorite time of year - especially living in the city! 
i love the lights, christmas trees and decor, and all of the 
fun, holiday-related festivities that are taking place.

today i have the pleasure of linking up with a few 
amazing (and beloved!) fashion bloggers to share our take 
on holiday plaid.
^^^ our inspiration photo via because shanna said so;
i love her bag and scarf! ^^^

sweater: old navy, dress: nordstrom rack (old), jacket: nordstrom (exact here),
scarf: target (exact here), boots: thrifted, bag: urban outfitters, tights: tj maxx

when i first saw this month's photo, i immediately thought,
'i don't have anything like that!' one of the reasons i
love participating in this link up, however, is because it challenges
me to pair items i already own, but have not yet worn together.
while i love the plaid and leopard, i probably would not
have thought to wear them in the same style post.

i must confess, i did use this challenge as an excuse
to purchase my leopard jacket. i've been lusting after a warm,
furry jacket this winter, and this past weekend, i picked up
this leopard one at my local nordstrom (it's on major sale, too!).

my black dress is an oldie, but classic, and i found
the plaid scarf at target earlier this fall.
be sure to check out how the other ladies styled their
holiday plaid below! and a special thank you to brooke, from
silver lining, for hosting. you can sign up for next month's link up
via brooke's blog.
