Tartan Time

My grandmother was from Scotland, and my granny was of Scottish decent so I credit them both for my lifelong love of all things tartan. For me tartan and the holidays go hand in hand. Here are some of my favorite picks for this Holiday season.

Lands End Stewart Dress Tartan Pant

I actually ordered the pants from Lands End today since they are on sale with free shipping. I sized up because no one looks good in too small tartan pants! Eek! I am hoping all my work at pure barre will make them look ok.

Beaded chevron popover in black watch plaid

 I will be honest and confess I wasn’t really a fan of this popover when I first saw photos of it, however it has grown on me. I like that it is casual and dressy at the same time. I worry since I am chesty though that on me the chevron beading would just be like “yo look at my boobs.” If I had any desire to purchase this I would do so soon because I anticipate it will likely sell out soon. J Crew items have a tendancy to do so.

Lands End Tartan Vest

Back to Lands end because I am seriously obsessed with this tartan vest. I would absolutely NOT wear it with the pants haha!

Vineyard Vines Mistletoe Plaid Shep Shirt

For the past two years Vineyard Vines has absolutely killed it with Holiday tartans. This year is no exception. I purchased last year’s holiday shep shirt and I hope to be able to purchase one of the two cute options they have this year. This tartal also comes in a super cute ruffle shirt!


I am sure there will more tartan for me to cover before the 2014 Holiday season comes to a close.
