Little Plaid Dress

Dress - Vineyard Vines (no longer available, I also love this pretty gingham dress, this little red dress, and this houndstooth dress that you could wear after the holidays) / Cardigan - Old Navy / Booties - TOMS / Bag (super similar for less than $30!) - J. Crew Factory / Watch - Wristology 

Omg you guys. This dress. It was way over my usual budget for a single clothing item, but I saw it and couldn't get it out of my brain, so I decided it was meant to be. Unfortunately it somehow already went out of stock (I just ordered it last weekend!) but I linked up a bunch of other fun holiday dresses in case you're looking for something last minute to wear. Since Christmas is somehow THIS WEEK (what?!??) I plan on wearing this dress basically nonstop for the next couple of days, including to my father-in-law's Christmas party on Wednesday and on Christmas Eve. 

I'm so excited for the next couple of weeks. We also have a party with my neighborhood friends from home which is hilarious every year on Thursday, a couple of nights spent out in the suburbs with my family and then Jeff's, meeting TWO of my cousin's new spouses, and a whole lot of time visiting our extended families. 

I wasn't planning on taking a lot of time off for the holidays this year, but my boss ended up offering me some extra vacation days for working a huge event earlier this year. Combined with floating holidays and the days our office is closed, I somehow managed to end up with time off from this Thursday all the way through until the new year! I think I managed to trick Jeff into taking some days off too, so I'm planning a bunch of day dates for us, including brunch at Cindy's, a trip to Millennium Park to see the big tree, and a visit to the Science and Industry Museum. 

We also ended up planning a last minute trip with Jeff's dad and his girlfriend to Vegas for New Year's! I'm so excited!! Right now we have tickets to a fancy party for NYE, and I'm planning on sneaking away for a little spa time and shopping while Jeff and his dad hit the craps table. Two of my good friends from home are going to be there at the same time so we're also planning on meeting up with them. I seriously can't wait!!

Oh, and don't worry Mom, I wore a cardigan ;)

  1. I loved your makeup in this look! Would you share those details too? And that takes nothing away from that dress; I'm jelly that it's not available now!
