Top: similar here. Shoes: here. Backpack: here. Skirt: here. One of the most frustrating things about dressing during the holidays is wearing red or green and not looking like a walking Christmas tree. Personally, I like to break things up by wearing neutrals so I don't look like I'm too spirited. I was worried at first after I bought this pleated schoolgirl skirt, but decided to embrace the trend by pairing it with a backpack. If you haven't invested in a backpack yet, I highly recommend you do before 2015. They're perfect for concerts and traveling and mine has been a go to this year.
