Dressing Up Buffalo Plaid for the Holidays

I can’t believe I almost let this holiday season pass without a buffalo plaid post. Luckily, I’m correcting that oversight today with this dressy buffalo plaid look for the holidays. Buffalo plaid is my favorite plaid (and Becky’s too!!!), which lead to a little bit of a tree fiasco this year, but more about that at the end of the post.haha

Dressing up buffalo plaid for the holidays is so easy–just add faux leather! Faux leather is on trend this winter, and pairs perfectly with buffalo plaid. Here, I’m wearing a faux leather skirt that’s just $35. The quality is good for the price, and the length is just right. You could easily swap the faux leather skirt for a pair of faux leather leggings, like this pair under $40.

Either way, pull on some over the knee boots. I’ve had mine for a couple of years and these exact ones are no longer in stock, but I’ve rounded up 3 similar pairs under $50! I even linked some with no heel:) And to truly make your outfit festive, add green accessories!

So, about our tree. . . I’ve wanted to do a buffalo plaid tree for the past two years but hadn’t been able to find buffalo plaid ribbon because I’m very last minute. Well, I was at Michael’s a couple of weeks ago and low and behold, I found the last two rolls of buffalo plaid ribbon in the store. I’m pretty sure the angels were rejoicing.haha I come home, put them somewhere I could find them, and then Chauncey moved them. Which was fine (whatev), except that one of the two rolls went MIA. Chauncey said, “Can’t you just buy some more?” No, Chauncey, I can’t. So my tree sat half-ribboned for three days or so until I found the other roll hiding yesterday. Our tree is fully decorated now, so you can hop over to Instagram stories if you want a peek! And honestly, with Karoline, having the tree decorated for less time isn’t a bad thing.

Nice to meet you!
