What To Wear On A Christmas Walk

Every year our small town does a "Christmas Walk" where three houses in the community are chosen  and open to the public.  They are also decorated for Christmas.  One year, many years ago, my home was chosen.  It was a lot of work, but a huge blessing too.  If you want to see the posts I wrote about that event, they are HERE and HERE.  But, beware, as a lot of my house has been redecorated and doesn't even look like that anymore.

This year my husband and I went on the Christmas Walk together and we got to see a renovated barn that was decorated for Christmas.  The barn is rented out for weddings and other special events.  I took lots of pictures, and I can't wait to do a blog post about it after Thanksgiving. 

 For today's post, I'm showing what I chose to wear on the Christmas Walk.  It was a cold, dreary day so I wanted to be warm and comfortable.  You are also required to remove your footwear to tour the homes, so I had to pick shoes that I can take on and off very easily.



 I decided on this long, animal print sweatshirt that is super old.  It's one of my favorite pieces in my closet.  I've always loved the length, the weight of the sweatshirt, and the print.  I've previously styled it with grey jeans HERE and with light denim crops HERE.  Today, I'm styling it with my new eggplant leggings from Stitch Fix and a new pair of booties from JCPenney.


The sweatshirt has quilted shoulders and a bit of silver metallic scattered throughout the print.


 I carried my black Liz Claiborne tote (old)  to coordinate with my black leather jacket and black booties.


This top is great to wear with leggings because it's long enough to cover my backside.


I've been seeing the booties with the multiple buckles for a few seasons now and they have been on my wish list.  I finally took the plunge when I saw this pair by a.n.a called "Women's Ann Bootie Zip".  They are super comfortable, but I wish they had a little more of a heel.  I think they would be more attractive on me if they had more of a heel.  But, on this day they were the perfect booties to wear because I could take them on and off very easily (there's a zipper on the inside of the shoe) and because they're flat, they were comfortable to walk in.


For jewelry I chose these long, thin silver/black earrings and my usual rings.


I chose my faux leather jacket from CJBanks (old) because it was a bit drizzly this day so I needed to wear outerwear that could handle a little rain.


Have A Great Day!  Amy

  2. A perfect shirt to wear with legging type pants, and love the boots. I'm all for a flat heel so I think the boots are perfect! Love the buckles!

    1. Thanks Ellie. I love the comfort of a flat, but when there isn't a heel to elongate the leg my legs shorter and stumpier. :(

  4. A Christmas walk sounds like a lovely tradition! We usually take some time on an evening before Christmas to take the kids out and see the Christmas lights. That's just walking around the neighbourhood though, not going into people's homes, not quite the same, but kinda similar :) Of course we usually wear a lot less too as it's summer!

    Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend :) It's a relaxing one here!

    1. I always have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that you celebrate the holidays during the summer in Australia. It's probably a lot easier to put up Christmas lights when it's not freezing outside.

  6. We used to go to this town in Illinois not far from STL to do a Christmas Home Tour Walk. But, stopped after we had kids (lol). I would love to do something like this again sometime in the future. I just love that subtle leopard print top, so pretty! It looks great with the colored jeans. Stitch Fix has the best pants!

    1. Yes, Christmas Walks aren't for kids. But now that they're older, you can probably start going again. I so agree with you on Stitch Fix pants. They are the best!
