TGIF, friends! I can’t believe we’re less than two weeks out from Christmas!!!! I know someone who has a lot of wrapping and a little shopping left to do. . . . While I’ve been rolling out the festive outfits around here, today I thought I’d share a smart little outfit that will also work after the holidays are over with a quick accessories change.


It’s no secret that Walmart has been stepping up their clothing game. This plaid blazer would be a great addition to any closet, as it can be worn in a variety of ways. It’s part of their Time and Tru line, and while it’s sold out online, you may be able to find it in stores (check the clearance rack). I’ve linked a super similar one that’s just $17! I layered it over my favorite cami, but you could also try a turtle neck or graphic tee. FYI, my cami is 50% off today!

Sometimes, as a fashion blogger, we tend to overlook more basic pieces, such as this plaid skirt. It also comes in a cute plaid, which I was drawn too. At the end of the day, I picked up the basic black because I knew it would carry me through the colder months. The ruffle detail trailing down the front takes a basic piece and spices it up. And because it’s cold, I wore my OTK boots. You could also swap them out for tights and booties.

How much holiday prep do you have left to do?
