I don’t know about you guys but I could use some festive moments in my life. It’s been such a rollercoaster of the year and I’m ready for some cheap thrills this holiday season. Mid-week fires in the fireplace after work, yep. Cooking meals and baking holiday desserts with too many ingredients, I’m in. Bringing out the holiday decorations out a bit early, of course.
This includes breaking out my holiday clothes! So many of my favorite holiday-themed clothes are on the dressier side. I was excited to see that J. Crew released some more casual tartan things. Perfect for this year. My absolute favorite of everything? This smocked top– which also happens to be 50% off right now with the code “DRESSYISH” at checkout. Couldn’t wait another day to post it in case you too want to add it to your collection.
It’s Time for Tartan!
The details on this top are everything. An over the top festive tartan, frilly collar, smocked neck, ruffles at the cuffs. Couldn’t love it more.
Since it is on the more aggressive side of things and it’s only November 5, I thought layering a fisherman sweater over toned it down perfectly for a more “it’s-still-early-november-but-I-appreciate-your-enthusiasm” look.
