Plaid on a Sunny Day


Chicago's weather has been uncharacteristically warm the past few weeks. While 60-degrees-and-sunny is always welcome, it's a little sad at the same time. The holiday season just isn't the same without wrapping yourself in a down coat & gazing at holiday lights among snowflakes. 
While my nostalgia for a whiter Christmas holds strong, I can't help but smile when I open my apartment window to a spring-like breeze. Of course, the sunshine leaves much to be desired outdoors. Like hanging out on rooftops. And wearing plaid jackets displaying tiny dots on the sleeves without being overshadowed by a coat. 

Little outfit details often get overlooked when a coat is thrown into the mix - so for the time being - I'm enjoying being basked in sunshine.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend filled with cheer, whether or not it's a snow-filled season where you are.

Be sure to check in on Monday, when I'm launching 5 days of a Charming Christmas! I've got a lot of festive posts lined up including some DIY projects & plenty of holiday cheer.

  6. Love the outfit! I totally hear you on not feeling Christmasy due to the weather. I live in San Diego, where the trees still have most of their leaves! I'm leaving for Prague tonight, though- that ought to give me a good cold weather fix!

  15. You look fabulous! Tis the season to wear plaid. It's been uncharacteristically warm in NYC of late as well. Somehow it doesn't quite feel very December like but then weather can turn on a dime.

  21. Thank you so much for your comment! It took a while but I enjoyed putting it together.

    Cute outfit! Love the blazer! Our weather has sunny periods but the wind is so cold; so over here we are in the sun but in big coats too! Annoying ambiguous weather xx
