I bring to you today two of my favorite things right now: Red Plaid and Cloche Hats. They create the perfect combination for a festive holiday look, in my opinion. I have been adding piece after piece of red plaid to my winter wardrobe and I just do not tire of it. I also have been adding plaids in many other colors. As a result, I feel the need to add more and more cloche hats to my collection to coordinate with all of my plaid.

To better illustrate the madness that is going on with my plaid and cloche hat obsessions, I have just ordered two plaid coats, a plaid blanket scarf, a pink cloche hat, and a royal blue cloche hat. In addition to all of that, this fringed plaid blouse was just sent to me by Zaful to share with you all. And the taupe flower adorned cloche hat is also a recent acquisition.
This new blouse and hat really put me in the holiday spirit, so I donned it for Thanksgiving dinner which was hosted by my great friend Amy and her husband. We ate so much food that I promptly went to bed at 8:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving night. I was fearful that if I stayed awake any longer I would continue consuming all the savory goodness that we had left over, thereby increasing the risk of all my new plaid arriving two sizes too small!
*Pants: Faux Suede Knit Pants c/o Chico’s.
*Hat: Fort Drum Exchange.
*Shoes: Aldo Shoes. (I bought these shoes in Los Angeles last December when I met Rena of Fine Whatever and Anne of Spy Girl and every time I wear the shoes, I remember what an amazing time we had! I cannot believe that nearly a year has passed since that trip.)
In true blogger fashion, I had to seize the opportunity for a family photo shoot since we were all dressed up for the occasion. I think the last decent family photo we have is from Easter, so it was high time. But getting a 4 year old and a 6 year old to cooperate for a family photo is quite a challenge. So what you see is the reality of my life.
And in true Brady fashion, my outfit pictures were photobombed! For those who you don’t know, Brady is one of Amy’s lovable cuddly pups. And whenever we do photos in her yard, he always wants to participate. So I say, if you can’t beat him, let him join you! Plus, who doesn’t love a picture with a fur baby?
And Brady did make a great backdrop for my new Jord watch!
For your holiday shopping convenience, I leave you with this information:
Zaful is having their Biggest Sale of the Year right now. They have lots of plaid and plenty of hats for all the other plaid hatters out there. Now if someone spots a red plaid hat, do let me know. Immediately. Because it must be mine!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready to have an amazing week ahead of you. Happy Monday!
Keeping it on the edge,
