Tis’ the season of family gatherings, Aunt Edna’s indigestible mystery pie, flashy holiday decorations, and Bridget Jones style homemade reindeer jumpers — that time of the year when the ugly Christmas sweaters come out of hiding in the back of your closets.
Nothing says cheer like patchwork of reindeer, bells, snowman, Christmas trees and Santa in glitter, yarn or appliqué, and of course, all featured on the same sweater. The ugly Christmas sweaters that outshine the holiday decor, have been made famous by colorblind crafting Aunts and knitting Grandmothers everywhere. Unless you’ve entered an Ugly Sweater contest at a holiday party, no one wants to be caught wearing one.
Grandma knitted you something ‘festive’? Don’t fear, we have a few solutions up our red and green sleeves Before you give in to Grandma, we suggest you check out Walmart where you can find a not so ugly (actually, pretty darn cute) Christmas sweater to your liking. My beautiful daughter Julie and I have found a few, and, being that our little chihuahuas are total fashionistas, we found matching sweaters for them, too!
Why be ugly, when you can be fabulous! What do you think?
My outfit: Plaid leggings: No Boundaries / Sweater: Faded Glory (similar here) / Boots: UGG Marielle / Pretty Kitty’s outfit: Red-Reindeer-Dog-Sweater
Julie’s ensemble: Seamless Leggings: No Boundaries / Sweater: Faded Glory / Boots: UGG Classic Short / Harley’s sweater: SimplyDog
Can’t you hear your Grandma saying “if you can’t put an ugly sweater on your cat, than put your cat on an ugly sweater.” Lucky I have sweater loving dog fabulistas, hehe. So now’s the time to beat Grandma to the punch, make a quick run for Walmart, and put on your best Cute Ugly Christmas Sweater for the festivities! Don’t forget to dress up your furry friends, too.
Wishing you all Fashionable and Happy Holidays!
