So Festive!

I wore this outfit on the last day of school before winter break. The universal reaction to it was, "Wow! You look so festive!"(Literally, at least ten people said almost that exact same thing to me!) Indeed, a gold pleated skirt and a red ruffle plaid button down definitely qualify as being very festive, which was what I was aiming for with this outfit. As I stated in my previous post, in the last few days before Christmas I am definitely trying to wear all of the plaid and holiday styles I possibly can!

Sure, I could have just worn this plaid button down with a pair of jeans, which is what most teachers wear on the last day before break or just in general, but I wanted to be a little extra, as that's kind of my style. Without a doubt, I think the gold skirt definitely brought the wow factor to the look! While the gold is very appropriate for Christmas, it would also be fun and festive for New Year's Eve as well, although, to be honest, I think I might go with a silver skirt instead. You see, last year I bought a silver pleated skirt, so it only made sense that this year I had to also get a gold one too! I guess, much like plaid, one can never have too much silver and gold!
