Herringbone and Plaid

I have had this old herringbone swing jacket in my closet for at least a decade and it always makes its rounds into my outfits. It is the perfect weight for temperatures in the 40-60’s and it is classic enough to have decades of staying power to mix with newer trends every year. So you all know by now that plaid blanket scarves are a super hot trend this year. I recently picked up this one from Target to add to my growing collection. As I have been accumulating blanket scarves, I found myself steering away from the traditional tartan plaids, but then I realized that I really wanted one! I loved the color scheme of this one especially for the coming holidays. And the hints of black and white in it complement my herringbone jacket perfectly!

I went basic with my underneath layer with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans and a spruce green trapeze cut tunic with a waffle texture. I wore wedge ankle booties in a camel color which tied in the little bit of yellow from the scarf. Then I added a chunky silver bib necklace to fill the wide neckline of the tunic if I decided to remove my scarf. I love the pop of colors in this outfit and felt very festive wearing it. Festive enough that I even put up my Christmas tree while wearing it!
