'Tis the Season for Ugly Sweater Parties

For today's #tbt, I thought it would be fun to revisit the ugly sweater. This was a sweater I actually got last year from Target (on the clearance rack no less) for an ugly sweater party (pics of that party seen here) and in reality I got more compliments on it than I did laughs (which is the whole point of the ugly sweater party.) So that's when I realized this sweater wasn't really ugly at all, and if anything, it as totally on point with the aztec print trend. I have my annual ugly sweater party coming up in two weeks, so this year I need to make sure I bring my A game!

Sweater: Target (clearance rack baby!) // Vest: Gap // Jeans: Target
Rain boots: Hunter // Gold Watch: Fossil // Spike bracelet: Asos
So what do you think -- ugly or not-so-ugly sweater?
Do any of you partake in ugly sweater parties?

  1. Yup, this sweater is definitely cute! I don't have an ugly sweater party to attend, but if I did, I'd probably wear something on the cute side so I could actually wear it again. :)

  3. I need an ugly sweater for tomorrow at work! I don't think yours qualifies...sorry:) I just hate to go buy one that I won't actually wear again, so I don't know what I am going to do. Maybe I will just be a boob and dress normal.

    1. Salvation Army and Goodwill are always good places to find some ugly sweaters. If you have time you should check one out!

  4. Steph you look so cute!!! I agree...this sweater totally does not qualify as an ugly Christmas sweater! I love it when you invest in a piece that you may not be crazy about, but then it grows on you more and more with each wear! Love the way you styled it with the vest and hunter wellies! Can't wait until your ugly Christmas sweater party! You always go above and beyond girl!

  9. Umm. I think you are so cute, that any sweater on you would look good. However, I do not think this is an ugly sweater at all. And I love your hooded and fur trimmed vest.
