Girls in Plaid and Pearls.

Since being back at work, I am running busier than ever these days. I only go to work two or three times a week but Thursdays are my busiest days and a day I spent at work for about 10-11 hours. It is almost impossible for me to do much blog-related on Thursdays and I was too tired to write this post (for today), last night. But I have on a Cute Holiday Outfit and I am back with Vivian who had been missing from this blog for a long while. Well, we are back today and all next week with Mommy+Daughter Outfit Posts. So stay tuned. I promise I got some great posts ahead. =)

Last week I happened to be at JC Penney and I found this adorable bronze almost blush sequined mini skater skirt which I thought would be perfect for the Holidays. Then, on another table nearby, folded were these pretty flannel plaid shirts. I wanted a Green Plaid Button-down in dark greens for a while now. The material on this one is soft and warm flannel (which I prefer for Winter) and the top back part is all sequined with dark gold, almost bronze sequins. These pieces were totally meant to be. The skirt is a bit on the short side but I think with dark opaque tights is totally great for a mom. For a Holiday-inspired look that is both dressy yet feels pretty casual, I wore another pair of red pumps. This satin D'orsay pair has kitten heels and they have adorable tuxedo bows on the back. I added more little pops of red with my red lipstick (love my new "Cherry Blossom" by Revlon), Flower Studs and Red Semi-Precious Ring. The Faux Pearls I am wearing come with a dress of mine. And so do Vivian's pearls (from the same dress). Vivian is wearing the longer pearl necklace to match mommy and a tiny bit of red lipstick too. She also has on Red+Plaid (love her peplum tunic with a little bow) and some Green too (on her large flower barrette). She also kept her bottom part neutral and wore Black Leggings. So Girls in Plaid and Pearls it is! What do you think? Own a little sequined skirt? They are perfect for the Holiday season. I am wish-listing this one - elegant, sexy and such a great deal.
