‘Tis the season for stepping out in style! Truth be told, I never really need an excuse to dress up. But I still find myself getting a little more festive with my outfit choices this time of year. Fire engine red accessories added the perfect burst of color to this houndstooth cape dress – which is the perfect transitional piece from a day at the office to a holiday cocktail party afterward.

Speaking of this cape dress… ISN’T SHE LOVELY?!

Seriously, as soon as I saw it online, I knew I had to have it. It’s such a unique piece and very versatile. I love that I can also layer it with a sleek black turtleneck underneath when the temps dip below freezing. I felt so ladylike while wearing it, and it gives off a definite vintage vibe while still being quite modern.

ABOUT THE FIT:
This dress runs true-to-size (and comes in plus size!). I went up a size, but I actually wish that I hadn’t because the waist is a bit too big for me. I had an event in mind for this dress, so I decided to just keep and cinch the belt a little tighter around the waist. I love it so much that I may even shell out a few bucks to have it taken in.

The following information will perhaps cause you to clutch your pearls, buuuuut… truth be told, I’m not that crazy about the color purple and don’t have much of it in my wardrobe. Now red and blue, I can totally rock with. But I’ve just never been able to muster up much excitement for the color purple (aside from the movie and Broadway musical – the book was a little too heavy for me). In any case, I’m slowly coming around to it – especially when I recently found this gorgeous wool coat for fall. I decided that if I’m going to give purple a shot this season, I may as well go all in and commit with a major wardrobe staple. Once I paired it with yellow accessories (and freakin’ LOVED the way it looked), I knew I was finally coming around to it.

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.
