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 Travel

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I know a lot of you will be traveling to see family and friends.  My family is in-state, so no big travel plans for me, but here are some essentials for those of you that will be traveling next week:

A cozy poncho is perfect for chilly airplane cabins (it doubles as a blanket!) and heavyweight leggings are a must for comfy travel without looking like you just rolled out of bed. Flat ankle boots are great for getting through security quickly and easily; and with your iPad mini, you can catch up on your favorite TV shows while waiting for your flight. And don’t forget about your skin! The Karuna Hydrating Treatment Mask is one of my very favorite treatments for when my skin needs moisture (like on long, dry flights). They are super easy to use, and you don’t even have to wash your face when you take it off–just rub in the moisturizing serum and go!

PS-I found out about the Karuna Hydrating Treatment Mask and a lot of other really cool products through BirchBox.  You should check it out!

PSS-This isn’t a sponsored post–I just really love Karuna and BirchBox! 


For the last few months, I have been drastically reducing what’s in my closet down to my most basic, simple items (almost all black and/or white), and adding back only the most classic pieces that will be able to stand the test of time. You know, a classic white button-down, a camel trench, flattering dark-rinse jeans.  I am really trying to stay away from “trendy” items, and only purchase the things that I really love, even if they cost a little more.  I am looking forward to being able to wear my clothes for more than one season!

All that to say, I am really loving the leather trend that has taken over for the past few seasons. This leather pencil skirt is top-notch! And even though leather is definitely a trend, I don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon (fingers crossed!).
