Susan’s Pick: A perfect outfit for after-Christmas visitors!

The day after Christmas...

It’s the day after Christmas and like most of you, I’m exhausted. Months of preparation led to the Big Day and as glorious as it was, I’m spent.

Each year we host a huge Christmas Day party for family and friends. Last night, there were over 50 guests! Of course, many of our closest friends, who spent the day with extended family, couldn’t make the celebration. This means that they will all be stopping by throughout the day, today.

Although I’d like nothing more than to stay in my snuggly terrycloth robe all day, instead I’ve opted for a casual look that’s comfortable, but still festive. The black velvet leggings are so cozy and the fringed scarf adds just the right jaunty note. But the best part of the ensemble – my new Tommy Hilfiger boots!

With this outfit, I might even muster the energy to venture to a few of the after-Christmas sales. Well, maybe…

      Aren’t those boots AMAZING?! Bandalino has a similar pair, but these are much more comfortable. If it ever stops raining, I will wear them this week to work. Yay!
