Here’s proof that I’m actively integrating color into my wardrobe, in case you had any doubts. This oversized Topshop sweater dress from Nordstrom is probably one of the best purchases I’ve made in a while for more than one reason. When I told Kevin that I made a practical yet on trend purchase, I’m not sure if he believed me. But it’s so true! I went all last winter looking for a great sweater dress without any results but think I really hit the jackpot with this one! Not only is this sweater dress an on-trend muted pink color, but it also has a classic silhouette you can wear year after year. If pink isn’t your thing, it comes in a gorgeous grey shade (I did have to talk myself out of getting the grey color – LOL!). The fit on this dress is also perfect for my petite frame. You could easily give a few inches if you’re on the taller end, but it works well for us shorter ladies, which is a huge plus in my book. It’s really difficult to find oversized dresses for my height that don’t swallow me whole!
Although I love the size and color of this dress, its true beauty lies in its versatility. For this outfit, I wanted to dress it up a little bit for an afternoon out. I paired it with one of my favorite boots of the moment and some leopard print accessories. Side note – lately, I have been LOVING leopard print. When I was in elementary school I had this same obsession and had leopard print everything. The fact that leopard print is coming back strong makes my heart and soul happy. I love adding a splash of pattern and color to my outfits with this print to make any look more unique. This scarf is only $19, and this leopard print watch from Wristology pairs perfectly with it.
But like I said, you can wear this dress so many different ways. Pairing it with heeled boots definitely makes it great for a lunch or date night. However, it’s also so comfy that you could easily pair it with leggings or an oversized cardigan if you’re looking for something more low-key. Also, consider wearing a blouse or turtle neck underneath this for that extra layer once it gets cooler and to keep changing up the style of the dress.
Price wise, I feel this dress is right on point as it comes in at $75. It’s great quality and a thick material; however, if I’m going to spend money on something like a sweater dress in an area of the country where the temperature drops below freezing for months at a time, I’d prefer to be able to layer it to get the most out of the purchase. This dress allows me to do just that; hence, I believe it was a very practical purchase! Hopefully Kevin agrees… 😇
I hope everyone has had a great start to their week! Kevin worked from home yesterday for the first time so that was a little odd having a new coworker (in addition to my two other coworkers, our cats, Frank and George). We tend to be pretty chatty when we’re together so it’s a miracle we were productive at all! We’re looking forward to drinks with a college friend of mine tomorrow night! Do you have anything fun planned this week??
