The 3rd Day of “Thriftmas” – Grandpa Sweaters for the Holidays

On the 3rd Day of “Thriftmas” my true love gave to me….a Grandpa sweater!! ;-)

This time of year, who doesn’t love a warm, cozy, slightly over-sized Grandpa sweater? I know I do! I thrift at least 3 new ones each year and the one I’m wearing today is a recent thrift purchase from 2nd Avenue. I saw it in the men’s section, of course, and knew I had to have it! I plan to wear this sweater, and the others I own, throughout the holidays whenever I’m going for a casual and comfy look. It’s so soft and it makes me think about my grandfather (Fafa). My grandfather passed away a few years ago and I especially think about and miss him during the holidays. I actually have a few of his old sweaters that I wear ever now and then. Wearing them makes me feel closer to him. Do you have clothing items that make you think about loved ones or someone special?

Sweater: Thrifted, 2nd Avenue ($3.90)// Necklace: Thrifted, 2nd Avenue// Pants: Ellen Tracy, 2nd Avenue ($6.90)// Flats: Tory Burch, Nordstrom Rack (sold out)// Clutch: Love, Cortnie (sold out but other clutches available HERE)

I think dressing up for the holidays if fun but, there’s nothing like being comfy and cute when relaxing and hanging out with family and friends. I can see myself wearing this outfit, and others like it, for several occasions. Hubby and I plan to travel to see his family in DE this month and this is the perfect winter travel outfit. Adding a red lip as I did here takes the outfit up a notch. I actually threw on the lipstick at the last minute, lol. I’m all about trying new things and new looks in 2014 so I figured I’d start early, lol. I’m not a make up wearer, as I’ve said many times on the blog, but I’m beginning to see how a little lipstick can do wonders!

    I can’t believe that I’ve never really dressed up for the holidays. All of the home parties that I attend are informal with no connection to anything except comfort.

    There are smells that instantly make me think of loved ones.

    I wish we had thrift shops over here.

    I truly do not have any clothing items that I’m attached to or wear for sentimental reasons. But I do have a bracelet my Mom gave me while I did my high school years in Nigeria. Love it so!
