I’m pretty sure I lusted after this sweatshirt dress for a full year before pulling the trigger. And it’s a little on the boxy side, but I DON’T EVEN CARE BECAUSE IT IS THE COMFIEST EVER. And a wonderful, heavy, cozy, washable cotton. Can you tell I’m smitten? I’ve worn this exact outfit three times in the past month, plus a few other variations. I love it when a longed-for item lives up to my hopes.
Do you have any wardrobe items that you pondered buying for ages, and when you did they turned out to be even more marvelous than you’d hoped?
This cowl neck tunic came home with me in April after visiting Audi in San Francisco, and as I sat down to write this post I realized the earrings were purchased on the same trip. The tunic is pretty lightweight and I wasn’t sure I could make it work for colder weather, but it’s perfect with this Boden “coatigan.” (I’ve also heard “swobe” – sweater + robe. Though not from actual Boden.) Grays. I love ‘em, but when the undertones fail to line up just so, they can look wacky together. Glad these two pieces play nicely together – a stroke of unexpected luck!
Still mining my stash of pre-snow outfits for now … but fear not, you’ll have six months of photos of me in the snow.
Like all Minnesotans, I’m terrified that we’ll have a repeat of the brutally cold winter we endured last year, and have been seeking cozy sweaters and sweater dresses accordingly. This is another Twice find, originally from Macy’s, and I realize now that those sleeves are gonna be a problem now that it’s truly frigid. Layering over or under should help. I’ve been scouring Twice for secondhand garments to flesh out my revised style, and have been thrilled with the results. Tip for shoppers: Always peek at the “New” tab, since they’re uploading new goodies all the time.
