Is anyone else stumped what to wear on Christmas? I am! Going to multiple families, cooking, eating, standing, sitting, opening presents= the need for a breathable, comfy outfit. Here's the breakdown:
- Look festive (without wearing anything tacky)
- Look cute (duh!)
- Look put together (not like I just woke up and/or sloppy)
- Be Comfortable (playing with little kids, I need to be able to be on the floor)
- To be warm (for possible outside activities)
- Comfy (no stiff fabrics allowed)
- Not tight fitting (allows room for stomach to expand)
- Covers all essential parts (no butt/boob cleavage in front of relatives)
- Appropriate dress code (no under/over dressing, makes for awkwardness)
I'm not going to buy anything new, since I need to buy a few last minute gifts, plus it is more fun to buy for others anyway.
So let's do a little shopping of our closets this week.
My favorite inventory includes comfy sweaters, and cardigans, which are perfect for Christmas visiting. The needs are all easy and pretty much no brainers, though dress code can be kind of tricky. Visit here or here for a great break down of dress codes for MEN and WOMEN!
Let's tackle these wants:
#1 Look festive-This can be done with out being tacky. (Avoid appliquéd or cartoonish sweaters with any kind of Christmas "theme"). Stick to jewel tones colors (including red and green), embellished tops/or sweaters (examples below), and patterned jackets/blouses.
#2 Look cute- this can be accomplished by anything you wear. Just add a smile!
#3 Look put together- easy peasy! At least, brush your hair, brush your teeth, and wash your face. If you don't want to put on full makeup: swipe on a little mascara or lip-gloss. This will prevent looking like you just rolled out of bed.
#4 Be comfortable- Traveling, eating, playing with kids all requires comfy clothes. Stick with stretchy fabrics that are not extremely fitted. Tunic/Dress, Leggings, and flat boots stand out most in my closet for this type of comfort. Also, stretchy jeans, supportive flats, and warm/ adaptable cardigans and jackets work well with comfort..
And of course accessorize to your own liking! Send me pics of your best Christmas outfit to Michelle at email@example.com
