Our Annual Chrismas Date - Plus Size Daily Outfit

Jimmy and I have an annual tradition around Christmastime.  It consists of going to see the light display at a historical mill (click here for info) about 40 minutes from where we live, and then going to a little pizza place in a tiny college town close to the mill.  We've been doing it for five Christmases now, and I love it every time.

It was dark by the time we headed out, so I didn't get a great photo, but here's what I wore: 
Sorry for the mirror shot.  And don't mind the gift wrap box and paper behind me.  I decided to wrap presents in the bedroom this year.  

Outfit Details: 
Black Maxi dress (worn as a skirt) - Fashion Bug 
Purple Print Wrap Top - Lane Bryant
Denim Jacket - Avenue  
Black Boots - Avenue

 The interior of the pizza place.  It is so cute and folksy. 

 Here's a shot of the main building at the mill. 

Do you have any Christmas traditions?  I'd love to hear about them in the comments!

FYI, I added Disqus to the blog a few days ago, and I am still figuring out all the settings and tricks.  I like that I am able to reply to each comment (and I will try to do so), but please bear with me while I work out the kinks.  


  1. I'm going there for the first time on Thursday! I'm excited. :)

  2. We're going to the mill tonight. I haven't been since I was a little girl. I can't wait to see my kids' faces light up. Was your attire warm enough? This helps because I had no idea how to dress.

  3. It actually wasn't too chilly when we went on the weekend. I did wear my winter coat and gloves and a scarf, but with only tights on under my dress I wasn't freezing to death. I was happy to get back in the warm car,though. One warning: Be prepared for the crowd. It gets super, super crowded the closer it gets to Christmas! Make sure that the kids know to stay close to Mom and Dad.
