Ugly Christmas sweater


My roommate/photographer and me in our ugly Christmas sweaters

Probably my favorite Christmas tradition at school is our ugly Christmas sweater day. The past few years I haven’t been able to find a very good one, but this year was different. This year’s sweater vest is appliqued, sparkly, bedazzled — need I say more? Here’s the breakdown:

Turtleneck: Gap
Vest: Salvation Army
Jeans: Old Navy
Flats: Gift from my mom

Take a look at some of the photos of a tradition-filled day, ugly Christmas sweaters and a fun Elf-themed open house on my wing of the dorm. 


No comment needed, I believe.


A hand-drawn lifesize version of Buddy the Elf.


Some festive and warm decorations that lined the ceiling.



Friends :)


One clothespin for each girl lined the walls on the wing.
