simple sweater dress
It’s been a heckuva week, no? Anyone else? Just me? Ok then.
That said, I went super simple this Friday in a grey & purple striped sweater dress by JJ Basics from Bergner’s (size XL, I believe – in Juniors fit) and Mossimo jeans from Target.
The sweater dress trend is one I really desperately wanted to jump aboard, but I’ve had a difficult time doing so. When your lower half is curvy-hippy, a sweater clinging to those areas doesn’t always look the greatest. But I wanted to try it anyway, and I liked the colors and the buttoned collar of this one. I thought the large collar might balance my lower half a bit, but I’m not sure it does. Although maybe it would help if I found one that isn’t striped! Horizontal stripes can be extremely risky, as I think everybody knows, but I liked this one and my other brown striped sweater dress enough to give them a try. Both of the sweater dresses verge on being a bit short, especially when you walk a bit, so I always wear jeans under them to work and have worn leggings with them elsewhere.
Perpetually beaten-up purple boots from Switzerland:
Yep, still wearin’ ’em!
Happy weekend, everyone!
