Is it just me, or does anyone else feel pressure to add a festive touch to every outfit during the holiday season? From red scarves to green plaid, I find little ways to infuse the Christmas spirit into my looks.
I’ve seen a lot of girls rocking the green and navy plaid, and I have never ever tried incorporating the pattern into my wardrobe…until now! I saw these gorgeous Plus Size Hampshire Velveteen Ankle Pants from Talbots, and determined that this was my time to shine. Not only was I excited to try the soft material and new pattern, but I was even more thrilled when I found out that Talbots carries petite plus sizes. Can I get an “amen?!” As a plus size woman who stands at 5’2, I can never find pants that don’t need to be hemmed to fit me properly. So when I received the pants in the mail, I was so excited to slide into them and not have them drag on the floor. I want to wear these pants to work and to my company Christmas party, so I decided to pair the pants with a Velvet-Trim Bi-Stretch Wool Blazer and a simple Pima Cotton Bateau Neck Tee, also from Talbots. I chose the blazer because the velvet trim really ties the piece it into the pants, and the Bi-Stretch feature also caught my attention because who doesn’t love a stretchy blazer?
