Good morning and happy Monday, friends! I wanted to start off the week by sharing a cute, effortlessly chic (and affordable!) outfit idea for you all. I always get so excited when I’m able to find affordable cute and chic pieces that make you look like a thousand bucks, without having to spend it! It is still very much winter here in the Seattle area, so while a lot of the country is already getting that spring and summer weather and sharing their Spring styles, I’m still over here styling pieces for the wet and mild winters we see here in the Seattle area. And this outfit is perfect for dressing up for a winter day, while still looking cute and fashionable.
I stumbled upon this cute turtleneck sweater dress on Amazon and knew it was something I needed. Sweater dresses are a great wardrobe staple and are perfect for so many different occasions, it took me forever until I finally found one I liked and felt confident in. I feel like Amazon fashion finds can be very hit or miss. I’ve gotten quite a few pieces that are a 0/10 in my book, but also some that are a 10/10, and this dress is one of them!
One of the main reasons I struggled for so long finding a sweater dress that I liked on me is because I am pretty petite (I’m 5’1″ for reference) and never felt like I could pull it off. And in all honesty, the first time I put on this dress I felt like I looked like a pillowcase. It runs just a bit long on me because of my height, so my simple and easy solution was adding a belt and tucking parts of the dress in, and I absolutely love it that way! I am wearing a size Small in the dress (the smallest size they offer) and it is very cute and stylish with its ribbed detailing, and even functional with two pockets! Although I have to admit, the pockets kind of bulge out a little and really enhances the hip area, but other than that, it’s just about the perfect sweater dress and under $40!
It pairs perfectly with a sand/beige-toned over-the-knee boot as I’ve styled here and definitely helps keep you warmer during the colder seasons where more skin is covered. My exact boots are on sale for under $60 and are also a must when it comes to wardrobe staples.
