A Holiday Outfit: Red Sweater with a Plaid Pleated Skirt and Glittery Gold Loafers

I wore this on the day I exchanged presents with Matt and then later, my family. We usually get our presents out of the way before visiting family since it's too much to take them with us. I decided on a holiday appropriate outfit for the day I like to call "Giftmas". You can't go wrong with plaid for holiday-wear and this red sweater I've had since high school was a great match for my thrifted plaid skirt. Each time I wear this skirt I'm always pleasantly surprised with how perfectly it fits me. It didn't even need alterations. I'm pretty sure it was some girl's uniform skirt at one point. Oh well! It's mine now!

I needed to throw in a jumping picture for good measure. It's happy holiday times after all!




Are you guys having a nice week? I've been having a good time visiting family and enjoying the change in scenery. It's snowy here which is always nice to have around Christmas time, I think. It definitely adds to the holiday ambiance. Plus outfit pictures look so pretty in the snow, so be on the lookout for those coming up soon!

If you'd like to keep up with my winter break musings, feel free to follow me on Twitter! I'm catching up with the internet this break and I've been tweeting more than usual. It's hard to tweet regularly when I'm researching and writing papers so hooray for winter break! My Pinterest is also getting a lot more use, so check that out.

Have a happy Wednesday!

This is a perfect outfit for Giftmas! If I didn't have kiddos chomping at the gift getting bit, I would totally propose this to my family. What a great idea! Love the skirt!

You look like pure Christmas here! Definitely perfect for giftmas ;) My favorite touch was the glitter gold shoes, it just brought everything together so well. And my week has been a blur so far- since I just moved home I'm impatiently waiting for my mailed boxes to come home. I have no clothes!!
