It's not often that I reach THIS level of excitement about a blog post! I've been working with one of my favorite Midwest Bloggers, Ashlei of Kinks are the New Pinkto bring you two ways to style a plaid midi skirt for the holidays :) I've only had the opportunity of hanging out with this lady one time in real life, but every time I read her blog I feel like we are BFFs. We chose this particular piece of clothing because 1) Skirts in general can be difficult to style in Winter, but especially a plaid one and 2) It's obviously SUPER cute and we couldn't pass it up when we came across it! Read on for the details on how we both styled our skirt!
Ashlei's Look: I love how she paired her skirt with a ¾ sleeve crop top. This is definitely the perfect solution if you're someone who has a hard time with high-waisted skirts in general. They can be tricky and a crop is always a nice problem-solver. Ashlei's print-mixing and statement fur scarf makes her outfit dynamic without over-doing it. The gold accents and chunky heeled booties add the perfect touch of femininity :) I'd wear this outfit for Winter dinner dates or going to see a holiday show.
Katelyn's look: I chose to style my skirt with a cozy sweater for soft, wintery vibes. With a few pieces of chunky statement gems and strappy heels, this outfit would be elegant and lovely for an indoor holiday party! If you can't tell from my photos, my favorite part of the skirt is that it has pockets! If it has pockets you buy the skirt people #ruleofthumb
I also love that the skirt comes in both the red and white versions. It's available on Shopbop which is convenient because the site has FREE 3-day shipping, so you can still get it in time for all of your holiday shindigs :)
