Weekender Edition

They stay burrowed in your closets. Maybe they were a gift from your grandmother. Maybe it was the impulse buy last holiday season. They are totally cringe worthy and ridiculously itchy...

One of the best things about Winter [right alongside drinking egg nog and going to holiday parties] are those ridiculously ugly, but oh so precious, sweaters. I really do see this time of year as a chance to don the tackiest holiday sweaters ever. Today I styled my "ugly" sweater with a printed chambray underneath, some uber comfy plaid pants, and a pair of heeled booties. I also added some sparkle to the festive ensemble with a crystal corsage statement necklace and a darling glitter clutch. 

Love it or hate it, the ugly holiday sweater tradition remains a cultural phenomenon. So how will you own your ugly sweater with style this holiday season? Be sure to send photos of your embarrassingly bedazzled ugly sweaters!

P.S - a holiday haiku for you: my sweet beloved / so ugly but so pleasant / holiday sweater
