Where:  Christmas at my grandparent’s house

Why: My grandparent’s house for Christmas always involves grazing all day — we get there for lunch and stay through to dinner with presents, football and games between the meals, but much of the food is left out all day.  I knew I wanted to wear something comfortable that could expand with me and this sweater is perfect for that — oversized and baggy, and really warm.  While skinny jeans aren’t the most conducive to a day of eating these have a lot of stretch to them and I knew that if need be I could unbutton them(who hasn’t done that from time to time?!) and the loose sweater would keep my secret.  Because we’d be making lots of trips carrying things in and out of the house I wore my flat brown boots — they kept me warm and kept me balanced on the snowy/icy driveway.

Does your family dress up for Christmas celebrations or keep it casual?
