Sweater Meet Dress


This outfit just came right together for me; I was in between wearing this sweater because the temperatures dropped (yay!) but I wanted to wear this dress again. I thought about it for too long to admit before realizing I could just throw the sweater over my dress. All before a cup of coffee, that’s a miracle you guys. 

PS: I’m in New York with my mom this week, speaking at the LHJ Get Social conference. It’s my mom’s first time to see the city and I’m documenting it on instagram. Isn’t that she cutest? 


Sweater: c/o Old Navy

Dress: old Zara // Similar

    honestly, i'm impressed that you were able to get that much thinking in before a cup of coffee — i'm afraid i can't even function without that first sip of Joe, ha.

    cute outfit– love the very fall-esque colors & the dress print!

    You have the cutest top knot! And also a great idea to just throw a sweater over a dress… keeps you cozy, but you still feel dressed up!

    Simple & awesome idea!!!! Isn't that what fall is about?! Layers & simplifying ?! Good luck speaking at the conference!!!

    As I was writing my post for my blog today I thought of you. I enjoy, appreciate & respect your openness & honestly. I decided to do an embarassing share on my blog today. I am new to talking outfit photos & am not the most comfortable with them…well I had a bit of a fiasco with an up-tight neighbor in my parents neighborhood…oh well…live, learn & move on!!!

    This is adorable! One of my favorite fall looks is to take my summer sundresses & maxis and layer on a sweater to make it seasonally-appropriate! You accomplished that effortlessly!
