Ok, I have a confession to make. I may have bit off more than I can chew regarding the “Twelve Ugly Sweaters of Christmas” series. I overlooked the very large fact that it’s the holiday season, and it is a very very busy time of year. So instead of twelve sweaters, I will post six, and the series may run a little after Christmas. I think its important to admit when you’ve taken on a little too much, and that is what I am doing! Moving forwards, it will just be the “Ugly Sweaters of Christmas” series. Luckily since this is me we’re talking about, there will be no shortage of ugly sweaters to post this winter, and you will likely see all the ones I was planning on posting. I really do wear them pretty regularly!
Now that we have that out of the way, lets get on to sweater number three! This gorgeous guy (I call everything “guy”, I hope it’s not confusing) is a vintage Woolrich sweater that I found on Poshmark a few months ago. I saw it, and instantly knew I had to have it! It is super warm, maybe not warm enough to be the only thing I was wearing while we shot these photos (the high that day was 10 degrees), but warm none the less! I can’t get over the bear, and deer detailing on it. Just everything about the print of this sweater is pure gold in my opinion. I just paired it with black jeans, a hat, and some thrifted work boots. Like most of my ugly sweaters, I feel like it is cool enough on its own that when used in an outfit, it doesn’t need a lot of bells and whistles.
I wore this sweater around town while on vacation at Lake Couer d’Alene this weekend. To me, this sweater definitely screamed “winter get away in Idaho”. It kept me nice and warm, and was super easy to move around it. I was on vacation with my husband’s family, which included my nephews (it’s still so weird that I now have nephews!) who are two, and four years old, so it was so important to have clothes that I could tumble around with kids in. I love wearing natural fabrics, like wool, when I am doing something super active in the cold. It’s a great breathable fabric, it dries quickly, which is important because snowball fights, and it is just so cozy even in the coldest of temperatures!
