Mad for Plaid, Glad for Plaid

Over the weekend while up at our family's lake house, we decided to take photos for our Christmas card. I know, I know, it's still October. However, thanks to Tiny Prints (post coming soon!) I couldn't pass up an opportunity to work with them on my cards this year. The only catch was that I had to have the photo I wanted for my card ready this week. So I did what any blogger mom would do, brought up holiday clothing for the entire family and staged a photo shoot!

Last week at the T+J Designs Fall lookbook party I purchased this amazing plaid number. Hello, it's the perfect plaid and you can mix and match it as well as dress it up and down all season long!  Plus, it is part of a three piece set (top, tank, & pencil skirt), so you get a lot of bang for you buck. When it came to styling, I used the black and white in the plaid and in my bag as inspiration to keep the color pallet for this look simple. Black tights, gold cuff and watch, and a pop of emerald in my shoes and the outfit was complete for my holiday chic look.

Thank you to Kaitlyn for taking both my family photos and these as well! When shooting together, we always go from smiles to laughing and it makes for some fun photos for sure. ;)

Have you starting thinking about holiday outfits yet? What do you think of my Christmas card outfit this year?
