What to Wear to a Casual Holiday Lunch or Party

Like it or not we are smack dab in the middle of the holiday season! I’m still trying to figure out how it is already December? Good gravy… Where has 2016 gone? This has been QUITE the doozy of the year, hasn’t it? Let’s not even talk about it…

I love the holiday season because it gives me a reason to wear plaid or tartan to my heart’s content. I tend to feel like a lumberjack if I wear plaid otherwise. Gingham does not count. Yes, I do realize that is a bit nutty, but I never told you I was a sane person.

I knew that I had to make this J. Crew Black Watch Plaid Regent Blazer mine the moment I saw it. The plaid is nice and subtle so it can also be worn outside of the holiday season. I have the blazer in camel (last seen here) and it just fits me well.

I have numerous holiday fetes that I will be attending this year for work, family and otherwise. I’m thinking that I will sport this look to our family Christmas Day event. Our Christmas Day event is less formal than our Christmas Eve event.
