Affordable Sweater Dress

Hi there, friends! Wow. It has been a minute since I’ve been able to get you an outfit post and, while it’s not the most creative or layered look, it feels incredible nonetheless. Baby steps. Baby steps. Hah! I have about seven minutes before Louie wakes up from his second nap of the day so I’m going to try and squeeze as much in as I can before I turn mommy mode back on so, here we go! Let’s talk about this affordable sweater dress that you can currently snag on sale [as long as you meet the minimum cart price requirement … I know, that’s annoying but, hey, I didn’t want to hide it from you, ya know?].
This gorgeous charcoal gray sweater dress, showcasing a mock neck and structured shoulders, is a great basic for this time of year. I styled it with these classic Marc Fisher booties, that I’ve had for a few years now, as it might not be quite cool enough for boots yet. However, this is definitely a piece that you can build upon as it gets colder. I’m personally excited to throw on this beige coat over it with these new boots [UK LINK] I just pulled the trigger on. Speaking of boots, Nordstrom has quite a few knee high and over the knee boots that are really cute. I bought these by Steve Madden and these by Treasure & Bond. I feel like I keep and wear boots for years [as you’ll see in an upcoming outfit post … the booties I wore I’ve had for FIVE years and they’re still in good condition] so, I felt like it was time I added a few new ones to the collection. I have a soft spot for cream, beige and charcoal for some reason. I just think they look so beautiful all together.
Also, I realize my handbag is a splurge so I wanted to give you an option that looks somewhat similar. The one that really caught my attention that I think would look gorgeous with this dress and with beige boots as the season wears on is THIS one. It’s by a London-based designer, which you can snag at Nordstrom, called Kurt Geiger. His pieces are a little eccentric but I personally think there are some good gems amongst the collection on Nordstrom’s site. For example, these flats [in the ‘Camel Leather’ are so classy. I’m going on a hunt for them on their official website later, hah!
Alright, friends. So, no, I didn’t write this in seven minutes. Hah, I wish! But I’m glad I was able to get it finished for you. I’m so thankful John and I both work from home so we can tag team quality time with Louie.
