Ahhh, this weekend was pretty perfect… between a few fun Christmas parties, we managed to squeeze in long walks to check out neighborhood decorations, a matinée of The Descendants and ended with a Sunday night curled up in front of the fire with warm bowls of chili & cornbread. This season has got me in ultimate cozy mode, and nothing seems more warm ‘n fuzzy than tartan plaids, preferably layered on top of each other for ultimate affect. Wouldn’t it be fun to decorate for the holidays using plaid as a unifying theme? Cut strips of fabric right from the bolt and use as napkins on an otherwise neutral table, and rely on the king of tartan for classic accessories for wardrobe & home. As Leighton so elegantly demonstrates, plaid is no longer relegated to Christmas morning pajamas…it makes an unexpectedly elegant print for a floor-length ball gown, perfect for the season’s galas. For more last-minute inspiration, don’t miss these other holiday boards:
