Casual Christmas Day Outfit

We are down to the single digits until Christmas; only 1 week left! I am so excited. We are spending Christmas Day with Jake’s family and then going to see mine for New Year’s. We rotate holidays every year.

For Christmas Day, I usually wear something more on the casual side.  I do my dressier attire for Christmas Eve. We are always home all day, whether it’s with Jake’s family or my parents. We spend the morning in p.j.s opening presents, then change into something casual as family comes over. One of the fun traditions Jake’s family has is called “The Hunt,” where his parents hide the presents and give us a series of clues and we have to hunt to find them. This is something we will do when we have kids because it’s so exciting!

I ordered this top right after Thanksgiving and I am in love. The price is right and it is perfect for winter. Velvet is one of the trends I cannot get enough of lately. It is so cozy and elegant. I paired this top with jeans, a statement necklace, and leopard pumps to make it dressy casual.

What are some of your family’s Christmas traditions?

    My family had the same tradition when I was young – that’s always how we got our “big” present. I even had to go to my neighbors house for a clue one year lol

    Velvet is very in style right now, and the tie at the front makes the blouse very unique! it’s also very versatile, which I love!

    Hi Courtney , you look so elegant and casual all at the same time! I really like the velvet top on you, so festive . When I was growing up we used to go to midnight Mass which I loved , but now with little ones we go on Christmas morning . We go to my in-laws every year for Christmas eve and Christmas day, my family are too far away 🙁 But it is a fun get together where memories are made . Have a lovely day Dear, hugs, Terri xo.
