Mad for Plaid | Holiday Party Edition

I don’t have any fancy-schmancy parties to attend this Christmas season, but if I did, you better believe I would be wearing some version of one of these plaid-tastic outfits!

Holiday Gift Guide 2013 | Christmas Eve Pajamas

I think it is so interesting how holiday traditions vary so widely from one family to another.  One family may leave out cookies and milk for Santa every Christmas Eve; one family may go Christmas caroling every season; one family may read a special holiday book before bed each December night.  A tradition that I want to start with my own family one day is Christmas Eve pajamas. On Christmas Eve night, every member of the family gets to open one special gift, and that gift is always new pajamas.

For any of you out there that already participate in this particular tradition (or want to start!), here are a few ideas:

For Him: gray flannel pajama pants | buffalo checkered pajama pants | slippers | t-shirts

For the Little Ones: rugby stripe sleep set | Santa shark pajamas | orange slippers | pink slippers | leopard onesie | pink striped sleep set


So tell me, do you have any favorite family holiday traditions? Any you are planning to start this year?

I rent my current home, so I am limited in what I can do with my kitchen (that has soooo much potential–and burgandy tiled countertops…). If I had any say in the way that it looked, it would probably be very similar to this gorgeous kitchen. White subway tile, carrera marble counters, dark lowers, brass hardware. Yep, love it all. Here’s how I would get the look:
