I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. What a busy time of year! The 24th is my wedding anniversary and this year was our 6th. In addition to celebrating life with Mr. Jean of all Trades, my family celebrates Christmas in traditional European style–on the 24th.
Christmas day is another special day for me and hubby. We’ve started a tradition: I cook breakfast (this year it was veggie sausage, home fries and waffles), we relax, exchange gifts, and go to a movie. After the movie there’s usually a restaurant open somewhere so we grab a bite. I love spending the whole day with my honey. We’re so busy that we don’t get to do that a lot.
Here’s an outfit that will work for wherever the day takes me. It has a neo-Victorian feel to it. Perhaps it’s the cape or the modern take on classic boots. Regardless, you won’t catch me caroling any time soon!
Boots: John Fluevog
Purse: Crystalyn Kae
I also wore this to run a few errands before work recently. It worked for both occasions. Under my coat is a comfortable long-sleeved T. Because of the gauchos, I still felt dressed up.
Did you get any neat gifts this year? How were the holidays?
I joined WIWW over at Transatlantic Blonde. Have a look at what the others are wearing!

I love the cape – it looks warm, cozy and pulled together.
Thanks Rebecca. It is warm and soft. I can’t stand wool next to my skin (too itchy). Luckily, whatever this is (poly?) is cozy.
FABULOUS coat/cape – Love it! Found you via the What I Wore link up!

Glad you found me! I’ll check out your site too. I liked that this wasn’t all cape but was more than a coat. It’s versatile! Thanks for commenting.
That coat is stunning. I love it.
Thanks! I took a chance by ordering online but the cut is so forgiving I thought it would fit.
Love how everything looks together from top to toe, including the big buckle boots!
Traditions are fun and it’s great to start your own. I receive a teddy bear every Christmas–sometimes a hand-made designer bear (by an artisan) and sometimes a Starbucks bear 🙂
Why am I not surprised to hear you get a bear every Christmas? 😉 That’s a nice tradition. I like supporting local artisans, so it’s like it’s a good cause!
