From Tacky to Trendy

If there was one fad this holiday season, it had to be tacky Christmas sweaters. Not only were tacky sweater parties, but there were sweaters all over the media and many tacky clad-celebrities. Now, I love a tacky Christmas sweater, but why wear it only once a year? I found this lovely number while thrifting one afternoon last year. Even though the Santa’s and snowflakes are M.I.A., I feel it’s a nice mix of part tacky holiday season and part winter lodge chic. To bring out the Ralph Lauren side to this outfit, I paired it with my ever-classic Coach riding boots that I found (way on sale!) at DSW. Like any great investment in boots, it was love at first stride. I love wearing this outfit because it’s extremely comfortable and it’s a way to show one of my thrifted treasures. Here’s my interpretation of a tacky Christmas sweater gone casual everyday ensemble. And in keeping with the outdoor mood this was shot in my front yard. It may not be the most mountainous, but let’s just pretend.
