On Thursdays we feature the sparkles and other fancy stuff for getting dressed up.
Just this morning in yoga class, some other yogis and I talked about how we often stick with a uniform of tops with jeans when we aren’t in our activewear.
If you’re like us, you may be looking for a festive new top to wear with your jeans – or perhaps even pants or skirts! – during the holidays. My top pick is this eye-catching J.McLaughlin Betty Shirt in Highland Plaid. ($175 from J.McLaughlin in sizes XS-XL)
I love how the plaid is placed on a flattering diagonal, but my favorite detail about this top is the contrast collar, placket cuffs. This top is chic, polished and perfect for the holidays.
If you prefer navy to red, check out the Betty Top in Beacon Plaid.

For several weeks I’ve also had my eye on J.McLaughlin’s Poppy Dress in Manhattan Plaid. (Sale: $159.90, Original: $235 in sizes XS-XL)
The dress’ modish style and vegan leather details are festive and modern.
More About J.McLaughlin
If J.McLaughlin is new to you, here’s a brief introduction.
I love J.McLaughlin’s clothing for its high quality fabric, flattering fit and staying power. A top and pants that I bought several years ago still look as good as new – and stylish.
One thing about that brand that can be both frustrating and reassuring is that J. McLaughlin isn’t widely available in department stores. This is frustrating if you want to look at an item in person and there isn’t a store near you.
But it’s also reassuring because you’re unlikely to find yourself in the same outfit as all the other women at an event.
And we’re happy to share that J.McLaughlin runs true to size, which makes it much easier to order online! Another bonus: they offer free shipping and returns – and first time visitors to the website receive 15% off.
