I’ve been chomping at the bit to share today’s photos! I found this ugly Christmas sweater and skirt at Target several weeks ago and knew they would be perfect for a cute spin on the Ugly Christmas Sweater Party. Luckily, both are still available and I’ve included others in the shop section below. 
I always struggle with the “ugly” christmas party, because I always want to look put together, even though that’s totally besides the point. But I’m sure there are others out there like me! I’ve never seen a sweater skirt so I snatched this one with the candy canes right up. It’s incredibly comfortable and looks darling with a sweater tucked in like the one I purchased with the gingerbread man. You can’t see it in these photos, but the bottom of the sweater says “Oh, Snap!” 
Due to the chilly weather I paired my sweater and skirt with some black tights, suede booties and favorite pom beanie. These tights are actually by SPANX and I highly recommend! They are really good quality, hold you in, and are much less likely to snag like most hose. I’ve had mine for several years now and I snag tights like it’s my job hah! 
I hope you’ll have an excuse to buy yourself a cute ugly Christmas sweater outfit too! If not, it would also be cute to wear one or the other to work. I definitely plan to sport this gingerbread man with skinny jeans and black knee high boots. 
Oh, did you know today is Green Monday?! I actually didn’t know the day existed until this year, but there are tons of great sales to be had! A great time to shop for last minute gifts for friends & family or to shop for New Year’s Eve attire. I’ll be sharing my pick for the best black lace dress on Wednesday, so stay tuned! 
Happy Shopping and Happy Holidays!
