Have a Holly Jolly …

Lilly P does jolly!

… sweater.

So ladies, what’s the verdict on holiday sweaters?  (Shirts, etc… any specifically holiday attire)  I know the prudent thing is to opt for red, green, cream and black, and I have plenty of the first two in my wardrobe, but gosh o’ golly, there’s just something about fun and funky holiday attire that hits me where I live.

It seems nearly every day has me adding to my holiday social schedule.  For the dressier events, I will be appropriately attired, but in years past, I’ve worn holiday “stuff” nearly every day of December. 

How ’bout you?

    I have one limish green cardigan with packages and bows on the front only that The Princess deemed appropriate to wear – only on Fridays to the office with jeans or a denim skirt and a turtleneck. *And* I’m only allowed to wear it twice between Thanksgiving and Christmas. So …..

    I once admired a friend’s beautiful holiday sweater, a very elegant one, cream background with soft blues and greens, understated, not quite your usual Christmas bright red one, having no idea that she’d been wanting to find a way to thank me for knitting for her newly-widowed mother. Next thing I knew, she’d had it drycleaned and then gave it to me! Ohmygoodness! It’s beautiful, and I treasure it.

    Enjoy yours while you can, the season’s too short!

    I love Christmas sweaters and holiday clothes of all kinds–even those silly reindeer antlers! I hear how ridiculous that is all the time but I just say, “Get with the program people!!” I’m a Christmas freak!

    I, too, love to wear holiday sweaters, vests, and pins. When I was teaching, I started wearing them the first day following Thanksgiving break. The items categorized as “winter” (snowflakes, snowmen, etc.) were worn through January.

    If you like the funky sweaters, then wear them! I’ve seen your building, and it doesn’t look like a very formal dress code is in effect. You have to find a way to make yourself happy amidst the mad circus that is December.

    I like seeing holiday wear on people and I have a few somewhat conservative pieces of my own. This year I’m longing for a flashy sequined top. I think I may just have to get one.

    I think I’m gonna be the odd man out here and say that I really dislike Christmas themed clothes (except for scrubs, but does that make me a hypocrite?) I’d rather where red or green, than an actual Christmas shirt.

    I know, I know. Are there no prisons, are there no workhouses? 🙂

  8. I enjoy other folk’s holiday themed attire, but rarely have any of my own…not because I don’t like it, but because it is hard to find something I like, in my size AND in my price range. YOU go for it and have fun!

  9. LAst year while I was loosing weight I had one holiday sweater left that I could get away with, this year, still loosing I did purchase 2 new holiday tee shirts, with long sleeves, twill have to do!!! But at one time I had quite the collection, at least 2 full weeks worth, between denim shirts, sweaters, sweat shirts and tees—-I am quirkly like this!

    Holiday wear is not my thing, but it would be awfully boring world if I set the dress code for everyone. So wear what makes you happy and I bet that shirt (or something similar) will make those around you smile!

    I love holiday sweaters! But I’m afraid it won’t be cold enough this year for me to wear very many sweaters.

    Working as an Activity Director in a rehab center I feel it is my DUTY to wear Christmas attire to include jewelry and light up socks. I start the day after Thanksgiving and continue through January with the snowman/snowflake clothing. Our residents love it, it brightens their day and mine as well….

    For that matter I have Halloween attire, some Valentine and socks for ALL special holidays!

    I too admire the holiday attire. When I was working, because I wore a uniform, I would opt for a holiday pin. These days I will most likely be found in a green or red sweater. I’m loving the holiday bracelets from Pier One Imports. I wear them and usually get a lot of compliments on them. I also like to give them as gifts.

    The Grinch here…no holiday attire in my wardrobe. 😦

    I’m not a Christmas sweater person, but my mom LOVES them. she is a retired school district employee, so of course she does it all…sweaters, earrings, necklaces, pins! I can spot a teacher from a mile away around the holidays, and it makes me smile every time! I love it when people let their inner dork out!
