Outfits for entertaining at home always give me a hard time. If I am at home, I am in comfortable clothes, usually a cotton dress, and barefoot. In the colder months I wear leggings and an over-sized sweater, or a dress with a sweater. Chic? Far from it, but I am in my home and I want to be comfortable. I am dressed in acceptable enough attire so that I won’t offend the mailman, but come to my home unannounced, and this is what you will find me in. I am warning you now.
So, getting dressed for a party I am hosting at my home always trips me up. I want to be barefoot. It feels strange to wear heels in my own home. Of course this is not really acceptable. And, I would never go to someone else’s home without shoes. In fact, I would probably wear heels. Lately I have been relying on sandals and maxi dresses, but since my husband hates them more than anything, I mixed it up recently. We held an outdoor movie night for a friend’s 30th birthday. It was a small gathering, but I actually wore heels and jeans. I was still very casual, because again, I was at home, but it is a step up from bare feet and a maxi dress. I need to know if I am alone here? I will get dressed if people are coming over, but it feels really strange to walk around my home in heels and anything but a casual dress. What do you wear to entertain at your home?
