Ugly Sweater Rehab

'Tis the season for the inevitable ugly sweater party and/or contest.  It's amazing how this concept has grown in popularity compared to just a year or two ago.  Luckily, I haven't been subject to such an event.  My husband, however, was not so lucky this year.  A spiffy dresser regularly, this was not his cup of tea.  While his sweater was miles away from anything he would ever consider wearing, it was not hideous enough to win his office contest.

In reality, it wasn't really that bad.  It was actually the most attractive ugly sweater I've seen thus far.  Now you know me and my challenges.... Even though I didn't have an ugly sweater party to attend, I decided that should I ever be in such a situation, I should probably have a game plan.  So, I asked the hubs for the sweater, which he gladly relinquished and came up with this little ditty.

See?  It's not so bad.  It is ugly.  But cute-ugly, amiright?

It was just big enough to pull off as a dress.  I paired it with what I call my "legs for dayz" booties and of course a basic black beanie.  But it would look just as cute with some sheer black tights and full length boots if you want more coverage.

Sweater: H&M (men's) // Booties: old but these are cute from GoJane // Beanie: F21

So whaddya think?   Hopefully I've inspired you to make the most of a most UN-stylish occasion (should you have to endure it).  How have you guys overcome this style dilemma?
