There's a First Time for Everything

I'm going to let you in on a little secret right here. This is the first time I have EVER (EVER) worn a sweater dress. My mom brought it to me the other day after her latest thrifting expedition, and originally I just tossed it in the floor. A few days later it was cold and I was looking for something warm, and I remembered the sweater dress.

Luckily, sweater dresses don't wrinkle. And officially I am in love!

Cowl Neck Sweater Dress-Thrifted (similar here, here, or here)
Wide Belt (similar here or here)
Black Riding Boots (Here and Wide Calf options here )


Sweater dresses are awesome. I'm not sure what I have been waiting for, but now I am obsessed. While this dress is thrifted and old, I have included some affordable cowl-neck options in my links above. I may have also added some options to my virtual closet as well.


In other, totally unrelated news, I thought Curtis did a wonderful job with these photos, so I decided to update my About Me page with some new photographs.I mean, do you ever look at photos and think to yourself, "Damn, I look good!"? Well, I do. I guess that's why I'm so great at blogging really because that happens A LOT ;)

 Since I was updating I rewrote my About Me as well. I've been really productive lately. Now about that pile of clothes in the floor....

I love the purple against your skin. Good job to your Mama! I actually own a bunch, but I haven't worn any of them this year. Maybe I'll get one out.

There's always a pile of clothes on my floor...ugh. I'm usually not so into sweater dresses because I just don't think I've ever found one that fits me right. I might have to test some out at the thrift store. Purple is definitely your color.

I used to be afraid of sweater dresses too, until through Gwynnie Bee, I met the Land's End Half Sleeve Cowlneck Sweater Dress. It's amazing. I highly recommend it!

Tashia @HipsandHangers said...

That color looks fantastic on you! Sweater dresses with leggings are cozy perfection. They're like pajamas that are acceptable to wear out of the house!

KATIE, you look like a STUNNAH in these pics! Oh man. And I freaking wish I owned a sweater dress. I've probably wanted one for like 8+ years, but I know I'd only get to wear it like....once...once every few years. haha

The purple is gorgeous on you. :)

Hailey said...

Oooh, purple is definitely one of your colors! You look fab. I love this look. Now that I have some tall boots (SQUEE!!!), I need to step up my outfit game. :-)

Franziska said...

girlfriend, your makeup looks AMAZING here! your eyes are poppin!

Marissa said...

Damn you look good! I love these, but your bathing suit shoot is still my #1! I say that about some of my pictures too, being a blogger feeds into my undercover narcissism ;)

I just started using Laura Mercier's Caviar Stick Eye Color in Orchid. It is AMAZING and I am obsessed. I want every color, but it's so expensive :(

Oh, definitely- those boots will open up so many wardrobe options for you!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you, Audrey... And you are probably right about the sweater dress and your friggin' perfect weather! ;) Better to invest in other pieces for yourself!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

She really does. I guess I need to start going with her!

I love love love this shade of purple on you and it looks so comfy. Also kudos to Curtis, he definitely did a great job with these photos!
