Herringbone + Red Tartan

It’s Christmas Eve…can you believe it? Finishing finals, coming home for Christmas and getting to do all of the Christmas seasonal things feels amazing. I can’t wait to start my Christmas baking, exchange gifts with family, and eat turkey. The first thing to conquer on my to-do list before Christmas is the shopping (gasp!). Yes. I left it to the last minute…the very last minute actually! That’s what finals will do to you…



I began the majority of my Christmas shopping yesterday (whoops!). Tackling last minute Christmas shopping calls for a comfy, cozy outfit…and what better is there to wear than a classic herringbone vest, comfy jeans, and some good ole’ bean boots?


Herringbone and red tartan is the perfect pattern mixing combination! I love how the two patterns play off one another! Since the weather has been super warm (for December…), this classic herringbone vest was perfect! Especially because no one wants to be shuffling around the mall in a big parka!


When I go Christmas shopping, I like to have a hands-free bag that I can sling across my body. Makes for easy carrying of shopping bags full of gifts and goodies! This one is from Roots Canada and it is so useful. If I have anything in my wardrobe that I cherish (and I do), this is one of my most favourites! It pretty much goes with everything, and fits a ton of necessities!



Bean boots are my complete obsession right now. Not only are they light, but they work in snow, rain and sunshine! The colour is classic (cognac…my favourite) and keep your feet nice and toasty! I always wear my bean boots with camp socks or socks like the ones below, which I got from Roots Canada.

The Christmas season is my favourite time of year and this Christmas is particularly special because it is so, so warm! It also marks the time when I began to think about starting up Pearls and Polkadots, if you can believe it. It has been one whole year since I began brainstorming!

Exciting things are ahead with the New Year beginning and I am so excited for you to follow me along!

Happy Christmas Eve!
