Plaid always has me thinking of fall, but it also translates very well for the holiday season too. A favorite combo of mine, and one that you'll see again soon, is plaid and leopard. They're two prints that work effortlessly well together and look glam while doing it. This dress is perfection for the winter weather with long sleeves and a maxi style skirt. Very twirl worthy! The belt cinches in the waist to create an hourglass look. Without the belt, the dress is quite baggy. I got this leopard coat during the Black Friday sales. Oh my goodness, swoon worthy! It has a stunning red lining and keeps me so warm and toasty. I also like the longer length for skirts or dresses that are equally as long. To compliment the look, I choose red pumps and a green clutch to keep with the festive feeling. If there is a time when green and red work together, it's for the holidays. Otherwise, it can look too much like the holidays.
You many have noticed that I always wear my Jackie Kennedy rings, the unity bands, but I actually have quite a few pieces of the jewelry from her line. It's a line that is reproductions of the actual pieces she wore. I have on a pair of her earrings in this post too. With the movie Jackie out right now, an absolute must see for me, I thought I would make a little comment about the pieces I usually wear. If its an emerald piece, that usually means it was a gift from JFK. His birth stone (May 29th) was emerald and he typically would gift Jackie emeralds to remind her of him. Many of the pieces I have were ones that JFK had given her. That always felt more special to me and of course, I love JFK. The gold unity band I wear was actually given to Jackie by Bobby Kennedy as a thank you gift. The emerald unity band, given by JFK, was for their 10th wedding anniversary. The emerald earrings, which can detach and be worn as studs too, were given to Jackie by JFK for helping him with his presidential campaign. They were part of of three piece set originally.
