Another day, another piece of plaid (and my favorite pair of riding boots). What is it about this time of year that so many of us grab the plaid? How, why and when did this pattern become such a holiday/seasonal icon? I guess it really doesn't matter because it just fits. I can't get enough of it and is quite possibly my numero uno go to for this time of year.

Kiki La'Rue sent over this plaid top and let me tell you, it's the "one". The length is perfection when it comes to covering your backside when wearing leggings. It's so tough to find longer, tunic tops that are comfortable, functional, cute and that don't require ironing! Can I get an amen? Well, ladies this top has made it to the top of my list. I have already worn it twice since it arrived and plan on wearing it a dozen more times this winter season and the next and the next. It's that magical. (I am wearing an extra small in case you were wondering.)
Can we also talk about these boots? I bought them last year, but are still available here, and have worn them more than any other boot on my shoe shelf. I call them my "trusties". They are on constant rotation and can be worn with almost anything and during any season. They have held up better than expected and look brand new. If you are still on the prowl for a pair of riding boots, I highly recommend this pair and they are less than $60. Score!
In other news, I hit the jackpot with gift cards for Christmas and fully plan to put them to fabulous use. I strategically stayed away from the crowds yesterday and plan on hitting the mall today. Can you say two-story Forever 21? If I discover any amazing treasures during my voyage, I promise to share them with you on Monday. I already have a few things on my list that I haven't been able to get out of my mind and hoping they are still hanging on the rack. Is there anything that I should be on the look out for? Tell me what's on your lust list. I don't think there is anything wrong with being Twinks with my friends.
Have a great weekend! Have you started gearing up for 2014? How crazy is that? A new year in less than a week! EEEEK!
P.S. Thank you to my sister-in-law, Rachel, for taking these photos during our camp house Christmas.
