festive holiday tartan

Happy day after Thanksgiving/Black Friday!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your family, friends and loved ones.  I am officially in holiday shopping mode {as I am sure you are too}.  And while I have gift shopping to do, I also have some holiday parties to dress for.  While I don’t own any tartan plaid pieces, I think when styled properly they can be incredibly festive, and am thus considering adding a piece to my wardrobe. It’s a classic really so if you get the right piece, you’ll wear it for years worth of holiday festivities to come.

Below are a few looks for both us ladies as well as the men in our lives incorporating festive tartan pieces and some super cute accessories that would make great gifts.
