The DIY Playbook Style Series – Holiday Sweaters & PJs

During the month of December our wardrobe can usually be described 2 ways. Either FESTIVE or COMFORTABLE. christmas-sweater-casey-bed

Today we’re showcasing some of our favorite purchases that fit one or both of those categories! We’ve got ugly sweaters for Christmas parties, slippers that you’ll wear all winter long, and even cute pjs for Christmas morning and beyond.buffalo-check-pajama-pants-coffee-mug

Ugly Christmas Sweatercasey-ugly-sweater-christmas

Casey: As a kid, I remember my mom wearing a seasonal sweater or sweatshirt for just about every holiday. Man how I wish I still had some of those today because they were so over-the-top and ridiculously festive!

casey-christmas-cocoa-sweaterI don’t know when or how the “ugly Christmas sweater” trend started, but I think it’s such a fun addition to any wardrobe. With an ugly sweater day at work (and no ugly sweater of my own) I decided to purchase this reindeer sweater from Target in early December. I’m so happy that I did, because now I can partake in those cheesy Christmas activities! casey-ugly-sweater-bedroom-hot-coco

My super cool reindeer number will now be a part of my December wardrobe, and I’ll be busting him out each year for our annual cookie day (where ugly sweaters are encouraged) and any other holiday party that calls for such an over-the-top look! You really only need 1 sweater, and I’m so happy that I now have one in my wardrobe (even if it’s so ugly that it’s kinda cute!).

The Comfiest Slippers & Pajamas

While my ugly sweater is comfy, it isn’t nearly as comfy as my new slippers! I love putting slippers on when I’m home during the winter months, because our place can get a little drafty. slippers

I scooped up these slippers from J. Crew Factory for 50% off on Black Friday and I’m so happy that I did! They’re literally a DREAM to put on. Soooo soft. Plus, I love that the bottoms have grips so I’m not slipping and sliding all over our hardwood floors. casey-bed-christmas-coffee

And you really can’t beat the gold moccasin look. Instead of being frumpy (like some of my past slippers), they’re actually really cute & trendy. bridget-blogger-stylin-home-tour-christmas

Bridget: I don’t usually have a coordinated pajama set throughout the year, as I’m a sweats-and-a-t-shirt-to-bed kinda girl. But something about the holidays always has me excited to pick up a pair of actual pajama pants. This year I opted for a pair that were more “winter-y” and not super “Christmas-y”. I figured choosing a pair that I could wear well beyond December 25th would give me the most bang for my buck! Like Casey, I bought this pair at J. Crew Factory on Black Friday. They were such a great price and worth every penny because they’re SO darn soft.

I don’t wear the long sweater (in the picture above) to bed, but I do have it on in the house whenever it’s a bit chilly. It is BY FAR the. softest. sweater. I have ever had. It’s from Madewell so the price was steep, but I scored it on sale so I don’t feel as guilty about the splurge. Not only do I love how soft and warm this combo is, I really love that I can wear it long after Christmas!
