STYLE: Sweater Dress Weather

The weather here in New Jersey cannot make up its mind! One day it is 45 degrees and windy, the next day it is 75 degrees, sunny and warm. I thought it was supposed to be fall! I already put all of my summer clothing away!

When the temperature drops, I still like to wear skirts and dresses. In order to do that without freezing, I shop for dresses with thicker or heavier material. I also typically wear them with leggings, stockings or tights, as well as a blazer, jacket or coat on top. Sweater dresses are in right now, so there are a variety of heavier dress options available.

I picked out this sweater dress from Shein about a month ago. It was a steal at ONLY $15.39! It so comfortable and warm, and it is professional enough for the office. I don’t know about you, but my office keeps the air conditioning on ALL YEAR ROUND. Even in the winter. I keep an emergency sweater and fleece at the office just in case whatever I am wearing on a given day is not warm enough. Lately, I have been leaving my blanket scarf at the office as well. I can always use an extra layer of warmth! I thought I would pair my new sweater dress with my blanket scarf. They actually look great together! I have already worn this outfit to the office twice, and I also wore it to a baby shower.

I have also been DYING to own a Chloe Drew Bag but, unfortunately, it is just not in the budget. I did, however, find a cute dupe for $15.99! Way more affordable, and still adorable. To bring everything together, I wore my new Daniel Wellington watch. I had been wanting one forever, so when they reached out to work together, I freaked out! You see, my father instilled within me a ridiculous love for watches. The clean lines and classic look of the Daniel Wellington is what attracted me to it. It adds a pop of color to this outfit and a classic touch.

    I’m originally from NJ so I TOTALLY understand the schizo weather. It’ll be like that from now until April! Lol. It’s awful. I, too, enjoy wearing dresses and skirts in the fall. I just jazz it up with some stockings and boots and keep it moving. You look cute!

    I know what you mean about the weather. I bought a sweater dress and I live in Florida. The weather is somewhat cool here and it’s a short sleeve dress. Your dress is so pretty! It looks great on you!
