Two Ways to Style Holiday Tartan: Casual


When I’m not wearing workout clothes (which, let’s be honest, is about half the time), this is a perfect representation¬†of the type of outfit you might find me in. Whether I’m meeting up with a friend for coffee, running to the mall to do some errands, or, my favorite, heading to brunch with my boys over the weekend, I love feeling polished without sacrificing the ability to get on the floor to play with Charlie comfortably. It can be a tricky balance sometimes, but a few key pieces–perfect-fitting jeans, darling flats, and a cozy cardigan–certainly help! Layering a sweater, blazer, or cardigan over a tartan blouse is a great trick for toning it down a little bit. Just a peek of holiday plaid makes everyday errands feel more festive, don’t you think? :)

(Side note to any new mamas reading this: a button-down with a drapey cardigan is nursing-friendly outfit gold!)
