Good Lord - do not try to find shopping links for your blog on the day after Christmas! According to the J. Crew website a few minutes ago, they currently have ZERO plaid shirts of any kind in stock. This country has gone crazy for plaid, apparently!

Anyway, I seem to always have the best luck with lighting when I take pictures in this shirt. And yes, plaid on plaid is most certainly happening here - if you can't wear that combination at Christmas, when can you?

Dress Well: Pattern and Spray Paint

I think that every printed item in my closet has been given to me by a family member for Christmas or my birthday. This blouse is no exception. I am awful at forcing myself to buy patterned items, and thus 90% of my closet is filled with solid shirts, skirts, and pants. When my mother-in-law gave me this beautiful blouse for my birthday, I instantly loved it - I got to add a printed item to my closet without having to shop for it! Win-win. Paired with black pants, black boots, and a messy bun, it was the perfect outfit for a Sunday evening date.







DSC_7974Despite being under the weather all day yesterday with an unpleasant stomach bug, I still managed to make time around my naps for some quality time with my husband, siblings, and the numerous family friends that come traipsing through our house on any given day. The holidays are truly the best time of the year.

Here's hoping that tomorrow is a healthier day! Enjoy your Tuesday.
