One peek at my husband’s closet (or his Instagram), and it becomes pretty clear he has a favorite pattern: Black Watch Plaid. Over the years, he’s amassed quite the collection of garments in his signature print, including everything from socks to a winter parka. I’ve even jumped on the bandwagon and purchased a few goodies myself to mix into my wardrobe.
Once a year on the day after Thanksgiving, while most couples are probably out shopping ’til they drop, I indulge hubby’s passion for tartan by celebrating his favorite fashion ‘holiday’: Black Watch Friday. Hence today’s uber preppy and matchy-matchy ensemble.
I only got into this color combo a few years ago, but I’m totally digging it. Pink and red have been my favorite colors since childhood, but for some strange reason, I never thought to pair them together. In any case, I’m making up for lost time.
I’ve been living in this super cozy oversized sweater dress for the past few weeks with no plans to stop any time soon. It’s sold out online, but if you swing by your location H&M, I’ll be you can find one. I popped into two stores recently, and they still had a number of sizes in stock.
About the Fit Even though this dress is definitely oversized, I went up a size for extra coziness (and to guard against shrinkage). My husband asked me if I bought the right size, but sometimes boys just don’t get it, lol! As the temps continue to drop, I’ll also be wearing this with leggings and tights for a different look.
After a long weekend of binging on turkey and sweet potato pie, the last thing I wanted to do is squeeze into a pair of skinny jeans. So instead I reached way back into my closet for this swingy sweater dress that I’ve had for years. The bow keeps it festive, but the loose fit means I can keep my food baby under wraps for at least another day.
I paired this look with my two favorite accessories of the moment. The first being this adorable beret that I just couldn’t resist as soon as I saw the bow on the back. And last, but definitely not least, these gorgeous yet super comfy block-heeled mary janes with a colorful graphic print.
