Plaid Shirt Dress

I like to wait until Thanksgiving is over before getting into the Christmas spirit. (I'm always a little dismayed to see Christmas decorations going up in October!) While Christmas decorations and Christmas music can wait, one thing that you can never do too early is start planning your holiday wardrobe! Once stores release their holiday line of clothing, everything seems to sell out very quickly, especially this year. For example, while waiting for several holiday clothing items to go on sale this year, I was shocked to see that they had completely sold out well before I could grab them during a Black Friday sale! Luckily, my wardrobe is pretty well stocked when it comes to plaid and other holiday attire. One of my favorite staples in my holiday wardrobe is a classic plaid dress. I found the one I'm wearing here deeply discounted at the J. Crew Factory last year but I have linked to some other gorgeous plaid options below that are still available in most sizes...but perhaps not for long!

To be honest, I did wear this dress a couple of days before Thanksgiving last week but I know many people like to wear plaid for Thanksgiving. Actually, I kind of like that idea because there is such a short window for holiday plaid that you might as well enjoy it for as long as you can! I also really enjoyed seeing this festive Christmas tree up in Costa Mesa. So, while I guess I'm a bit of a stickler when it comes to no Christmas attire or decorations before Thanksgiving, I suppose I am coming around to the idea of it starting just a little bit early!
