 Merry day-after-Christmas, darlings! Or, Boxing Day if that suits you. I hope you had a relaxing and joyous day with lots of mashed potatoes. I was at work, but still enjoyed the holiday.

I could have (and probably should have) opted for pajamas at work on Christmas, but I wanted to wear something a little more festive. Plus, I already had the outfit planned. What better time to wear red and green together than Christmas? (You can see the last time I wore these colors here.)

To keep from being so literal, I chose darker tones. I'm really excited about this skirt. I mean, it has a bow and pockets. I bought it at the same time as this one. It was a real good shopping day. I actually bought the sweater, necklace, and tights all on the same day too while I was strolling through the Domain during their pre-Black Friday sales.

Speaking of sales, are any of you out doing day-after-Christmas shopping? I hear it's becoming quite the phenomenon, and stores are offering some delightfully discounted items to celebrate. I am, again, at work today, but I'm thinking that I may need to do a little browsing this weekend to see what stores are getting rid of before the new year.
