Festive Plaid: B+W Windowpane Pants, Red and Lacy Bow.

The best part about not scheduling my posts ahead - besides writing in real time about real things - is not having to worry about things you have to do that day (besides blogging) that must take priority, or getting things done in general. Well, I had a busy 3 days. Not all that I needed to do got done, but I still accomplished a big chunk. And I had at least one or two more outfits planned to show you for Festive Plaid Week, albeit life came first, just like how it should be. How was your weekend before Christmas? Did you take care of everything you needed to?

Well, I am continuing with Festive Plaid and finally sharing my Gorgeous Window-Pane Pants. In my opinion Window-Pane is one type of Plaid. I was able to find some awesome options like my Pants all for 40 bucks or less (links below on the outfit's credits).
Keeping up with the fact that December is a Holiday month, I wore my Silk, Red, Bow Blouse and layered both with a Red Cardigan and a Black Blazer over it (because it was too cold). I think pairing it with the Window-Pane Pants was a Smart idea and the Outfit ended up being all Black+Red Monochrome (a Favorite Color Combination of mine). I was also being patriotic to my Albanian side I guess, since Red+Black are Albania's Colors. Speaking of Window-Pane I would still love to own a Blouse (a White w/Black Squares or White with Red/Burgundy Squares), a Blazer and perhaps even a Skirt in this Chic Pattern. Do you own anything Window-Pane? Do you like how I styled my Window-Pane Pants?
Yes, you have been getting a sneak peek of my little Christmas Tree and Christmas decor for this year. I will share all of it, tomorrow. Stay tuned. =))
Dark Red 3/4-Sleeve Cardigan w/ Silver Disco-ball Buttons: White House Black Market (very similar by J. Crew), (similar V-neck option, by J.Crew, on sale, love this), (similar, best deal).
Black, Cotton Blazer w/ Mandarin Collar & Military-Style, Silver Buttons: White House Black Market (very similar from WHBM), (cheap + adorable), (similar by Macy's, best deal, love this).
Dark Red+Black, Crochet, Fan-shaped Statement Earrings w/ tiny Black Beads on the edges: Purchased from an Arts+Crafts Fair (New).

And here is a look back at how I wore this blouse at Christmas time last year. We had a little photo-shoot as a family of three by our XMas tree last year. Oh and it was Vivian's First Christmas! It looks like I also paired this Blouse with Black and more Red, last year as well.

Speaking of linking up, I know tomorrow is Christmas Eve but if you feel like it, stop by my blog and link up an outfit from yesterday, today, tomorrow or whatever for "Watcha Wearing Wednesday" that I am co-hosting. The link up will stay open till the end of the week also. 
Season's Greetings Everyone and thanks for stopping by, today! =)
