Tacky Christmas Sweater

Once the number one choice of holiday apparel by "mom jeans" wearing moms in the 90's, soon after to be deemed a hideous fashion atrocity, and now riding high on a tongue-in-cheek comeback, the Tacky Christmas Sweater is well known by all.

Parties are thrown, laughs are had, and Skip 'n Whistle decided to reinvent it in the form of screen printed tee shirts and sweatshirts.

No more need to scour the thrift stores for that perfectly hideous gem, Skip 'n Whistle offers all manner of fun designs, from the classic reindeer, to dinosaurs, to moose love making... (I know you had to click that.)

So I thought I'd have a little festive holiday fun in the sweatshirt that Skip 'n Whistle sent over, and even with the snow and below freezing temps, I was so cozy and warm in this!

  8. I have to say, ugly Christmas sweaters seem to be getting less ugly every year. This one, quite frankly, is downright cute! Not to mention that you actually look warm in spite of the fact that you're being snowed on, which is no easy feat!

  18. Pfffff, tacky?! That?! ;) Maybe if you glued some pompoms to it and made it light up. Hehe, but my that sweater really is quite cute, Lyddie! I love the dark green color. And look at all that snow!! I'm glad you were able to stay warm through it. :D

  19. OK, I definitely do not think that is tacky AT ALL. I want it. I love it. I am talking about Holiday Sweaters on the blog, myself, today and I am wearing one. So come check it out. The White Parka & Beanie are adorable on you. You look so cozy. I am used to seeing you rock Summer Ensembles, but you look lovely in Winter Outfits, also.

    Have a Great Week, Ada. =)

  20. so cute and much less tacky than the sweaters with the appliques all over them.
    Plus a t-shirt is way more comfy
    Love all of your pics in the snow

  30. Awww, I've always been a sucker for Christmas sweaters. In high school my friends and I used to always do the silly "ugly" Xmas sweater parties and make gingerbread houses and hot cocoa!
