It happens every year. I head out to the mall, already frazzled and overwhelmed with a “Christmas To Do” list as long as my arm. And… I invariably run into a long lost friend or an old boyfriend who I haven’t seen in years!
But, instead of looking like a crazy lady with cookie dough in my hair from the baking marathon I just finished, or sporting ink smudges up to my elbow from the 100+ cards I’ve addressed, this year — I swear — I am shopping in style.
Above is the perfect last minute Christmas shopping ensemble. It’s cozy, comfortable, and oh-so-chic all at the same time. Of special note:
- Flat boots (I plan to be on my feet all day)
- Comfortable shoulder bag (hands free for more packages!)
- Minimal jewelry (just in case I want to try things on and buy a little present for myself)
No matter who I see this year, I plan to be prepared and at least look like I have it together.
Now, has anyone seen my car keys? Credit card? Shopping list? Sigh…
