These Aren’t Your Grandma’s Tacky Christmas Sweaters [Budget Stylista]

I don’t know about you, but for me, the whole holiday season feeling hasn’t quite set in. Yes, I see Christmas lights twinkling on houses and the occasional snow flurry, but with finals still here I just can’t feel the spirit. (After all, the holidays are supposed to be full of joy, not stress.)

All I can say is that I need something to get me out of this Grinch-y funk. I admit that I haven’t found that something yet, but I think I’m on the right track with the following idea: Fake it ’til you make it. In other words, I’m going to dress as festive as possible until I actually feel like it’s the holiday season.

I’m planning on wearing out all of my favorite “Ugly Christmas Sweaters,” including the one with penguins on it. I absolutely adore that one because my grandma gave it to me ten years ago… And it still fits!

As great as it would be to wear ice-skating penguins every day, I figure I should mix it up with other holiday-inspired sweaters. The problem? I don’t own any, or at least not any normal looking ones. All of mine are better-suited for “Ugly Christmas Sweater” parties than the street where people can see you.

So I’ve gone on a search for a holiday sweater that is actually cute, and to my surprise, there’s a lot of them out there on the internet. I must warn you though that a lot of them have reindeer, so I hope you’re fan of them!

Would you wear a festive sweater like one of the ones above? Or would you strictly save this sort of sweater for an “Ugly Christmas Sweater” party? Leave me a comment and let me know!
