Confession: I’m not getting a tree this year. I loved having one in the apartment last year as far as how it looked, but the needles drove me absolutely bonkers. Maybe one year I’ll be brave enough to try again. For now, though, I’ll stick to my tiny two-foot one fake one that you might have seen on my Insta Story last week.
The best thing for me? Helping someone else pick out there tree! Ha! All the fun and no needles to deal with!
Is there such thing as too much plaid in one’s closet? Because I may or may not be approaching that limit. (Insert Mean Girls quote to say, “The limit does not exist!”)
I saw this plaid shirt while I was touring Tuckernuck’s new office and I not-so-subtly put it on a wishlist. It’s a short sleeve version of the popular The Shirt by Rochelle Behrens. If you’ve tried on her shirt before, you know how it’s magic. If you haven’t, I’ll tell you the “secret,” but you really have to try the shirt on to understand just how much she’s perfected it. She has hidden buttons right by the bust, so the shirt doesn’t gape! I have been known to use a safety pin to fake this on some of my blouses that I love without the magic buttons, but her buttons are literally perfection. Best. Fitting. Shirt. Ever.
(Comes in tons of colors and prints, by the way.)
The detailing on the shirt, beyond just the plaid, is everything. I loved the short sleeves and peter pan collar; they make the shirt look like it’s made for you instead of just borrowed from a guy’s closet.
Had to bring along my go-to tote that I nearly always bring along for errands. I load it up with all of my purchases, so I don’t waste paper or plastic bags.
