12 Ugly Xmas Sweaters That Are Actually Perfect For The Holiday

It’s that time of year again! Now that we’ve given thanks and stuffed our faces with the endless amount of turkey and pecan pie, it’s time we get serious about something way more important—our Xmas ensemble. The invites to your office, best friend and family holiday parties are pouring in, and the big question is “What Should I Wear?”

It’s that one time a year, similar to Halloween, where you can get away with wearing something that is 100% not suitable for any other occasion.  For those on the lighthearted side and seeking an Ugly, and by ugly I mean the most adorable and funny, Christmas Sweater I got you covered, literally.

I’ve scanned the Amazon site for some of my favorites and came across so many gems. The best part is, if you feel you’re late or didn’t have a chance to buy one you can order one off the Amazon site and receive it with Amazon Prime (AKA Two Day Shipping!) This year my friends and I are having a holiday party over, and are having an Ugly Xmas Sweater contest. Luckily for me I have more than 1 option that will secure the top spot.

I rounded 12 of my favorite Ugly Christmas Sweaters that you should wear to your family/friends/colleagues holiday parties. You can shop each one with a link below the photo! Happy Holidays!

Swinging in Style with Ted Baker Golf

I wouldn’t consider myself a professional golfer since I only get to play once or twice a year (I blame the lack of space  in New York City which doesn’t allow for a  great golf course.) Over the weekend I flew down south to the Caribbean where I got to experience the most beautiful golf course in Aruba, The Links at Divi Aruba.

For the few hours I played I worked, I had the chance to test drive the new Ted Baker Golf Collection. The collection consists of graphic polos, in addition to bright solids, golf pants, printed vests and even leather golf gloves, which will give you another reason to play the sport. Golf can be conceived as a ‘boring” sport, but that’s probably because you don’t know how to play or have a really luxury golf course to play at. For me, I wanted to show that golf can be fun by dressing up with a punch of print, like the golf ball shirt photographed above. The collection is made out of stretch fabric polos, weather proof outwear and tailored pants so it’s both functional and wearable on and off the course.

You can check out the full collection right HERE. What do you think? Up to play some golf?

Season 2 at Coachella with Ray-ban! 

Day 1:

We checked into our Ray-Ban Oasis located in the heart of Palm Springs and prepped for the festival with a session of Pilates. Once the work out was done, we all hung out by the pool (filled with every single floatie you can think of). After that I visited the American Express house for a preview of their #AmexPlatinum house over at the Parker Hotel. Before heading over to the Festival we made another stop over at The Paper Magazine party to catch up with friends and pre-game (duh).

Favorite acts: The XX, Dj Shadow, BANKS and Empire of The Sun

Day 2: 

The aftermath of day one took a toll on most of us, therefore we decided to stick around the house, enjoy the sun and take advantage of pool time since I don’t really have that here in New York City (It is pouring outside as I write this blog post.)

After catching the iconic Lady Gaga perform her hits (and I forget how many she actually has) the squad and I headed over to Neon Carnival, which to some people is better than the actual music festival (hint: I’m one of those people). Think if Six Flags had an outdoor dance club located in the center of the theme park, minus the super scary rides– That’s Neon Carnival.

Favorite acts: Lady Gaga, Martin Garrix and DJ Snake

Day 3:

Day 3 we all had a late start, but can you blame us? We started the day with massages (I mean, can we start everyday with a massage?) and then hung out by the pool for some R&R time before heading over to the festival for the last day.

Favorite acts: Kendrick Lamar, DJ Khaled, Galantis, Tove Lo and Lorde

During the weekend, I was fully equipped and stocked with my new favorite pair of shades by Ray-Ban. The General were created in 1987 as a tribute to Lieutenant Douglas Macarthur, today’s design has been reinterpreted with a range of colors and gloss finishes to choose from. Think of them as the classic and iconic aviators, which inspired these, for guys with faces that are longer and more rounder. (If aviators don’t look good on you, The Generals will). They come in 8 color gradients and are available online, right here.
