A Few Christmas Week Looks!!

Well...I try to get in the spirit as far as my clothes are concerned over the holidays!  Most of the time it's for the fun of it all, so I thought I'd share some of the Christmassy looks I sported over the holidays!

Some teacher friends and I wear "ugly" sweaters to work on the day before the break. I wore this one last year!

This year's sweater I actually also bought last year, with the intention of wearing one, and returning one.  But I never returned this, so I was glad to have it for this year.  And now that I'm thinking about it, I guess if this tradition keeps up, I will have to get a new sweater each year!!  YIKES!!  I really wish my mom kept all those Christmas sweaters we all made fun of for years!!  I swear she had one for everyday of December!!

Looking at this, I'm realizing you can't really see the sweater!  Ugh...But I guess I dressed it up ok!

After school for this year's annual Cookies and Cocktails day, I wore the ugly sweater I finally got (after wanting for two years!!)  I didn't wear this one to school see, I teach in Catholic School and thought that perhaps I might get fired!!  HA!  But I so totally love it and it is the epitome of ugly!!  I also mentioned to my family that I thought ugly sweaters could be a new tradition for Cookies and Cocktails!!

Christmas day with my family is always fun!  We spend the day in our PJ's.  My pants I picked out last December 26th at the Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale and kept them specifically for Christmas day.  It took me a while longer to find a top that I liked and thought would match "good enough"!  This thermal I got on super sale at Old Navy!  I was super cozy in this for the day! (my socks matched nothing but are super cute santa socks with martinis on them...HA!)

Not only do you get me in get the whole family!!

The Monday after Christmas I went to dinner with a friend and her husband and chose to wear this.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this sweater and after wearing it last New Year's Eve, I haven't worn it at all. I liked this sweater a lot though and think this needs to get in rotation!!  Any day could really be a "Cheers" kinda day!!

I had a busy break but when I wasn't all decked out, I did spend lots of time in my blardigan and the new PJ pants my bestie Mel gave me for Christmas...just cozy!

Over the break, I relished the longer mornings spent in my PJ's sipping coffee and it a few pages of my book or the blogs!  So I thought I'd post this just for fun!!  It was an insta photo from the week. {Follow me here}

I hope you got a little time with family and a bit of relaxation during the holidays!!

Have a great Wednesday.....We've made it over the hump!!  :)
