The Perfect Sweater Dress

Happy November!  I can't believe it's already that time of year.  November is when IT starts.  IT being the non-stop holiday madness.  Before we know it it will be Thanksgiving, and then rolls in all of the Christmas parties, and then we're at the new year!  What??  Okay, I'll stop.  It's only November 3rd after all.

sweater dress: LC Lauren Conrad
belt: H&M
tights: H&M
boots: Civico 10
bag: Nine & Co
necklace: American Eagle
ring: gift
watch: Target

I took these pictures really quick in between work and school yesterday.  Wednesdays always seem to be quite crazy for me, first starting with work in the morning and then coming home and eating, finish up assignments that haven't yet been completed before I drive off to school for the evening.  But yesterday was such a beautiful day I had to take advantage of it.  It could snow anytime now!  It's Michigan, I should be prepped for the worst...

Now, onto my outfit.  I'm really glad I came across this sweater dress.  In catalogs I usually think that the sweater dress idea is cute, but whenever I try them on in stores they always seem to be really really tight.  I'm not a fan of wearing clothing that looks like it was painted on me.  It really doesn't look that great on me... or anyone for that matter.  So this sweater dress is nice because it's not fitted!  And I can use a thin belt to give it the appropriate amount of shape for me!  What a great idea.

I gotta say though, I don't recommend these tights from H&M.  I've only worn them once and there's already a hole and a bunch of snags in them.  I wasn't climbing trees or hopping fences... I was sitting at a desk..?  Live and learn I guess!

Have a great weekend!
