Tacky Christmas

It's that time of year again. Everyone is hosting tacky Christmas parties and other festive things. And for me this means going all out. I don't half-way do things. So when you say Christmas party… I think crazy. 

Which is what happened last Friday. 

And because this is just my luck, me and my roommate showed up to said "Christmas party" to find everyone else in normal attire. Yeah. That happened. 

But, in typical Caley fashion, I decided to own it. If you embrace the awkward, it's not really awkward, right? And because it wasn't like I did it half-way, I didn't really have a choice. 

I spent (basically) all day searching for a reindeer antler headband. Because Rudolph. Then I decided to throw some battery-powered Christmas lights on my outfit as well. Go big or go home, right?

Me and Allison killin' it at the party while everyone else looks normal… Hence the faces in the picture on the left. The struggle.

It actually worked out alright because when we went downtown, I took off the antlers and rocked the lights and everyone loved it. The number of comments I got… Hilarious. 

I've got another tacky Christmas party to go to when I get back home, so I think I'm gonna have to bust out the lights again. This time with a reindeer sweater. You can't go wrong if you just own it, right?

Also ran into one of my long-lost friends while downtown too. It was pouring down rain, and hot, and gross, but totally worth it to see my Murph!

How do you do tacky Christmas?
