The Sweater Dress

November 17, 2012

Can you tell I'm excited about fall weather? First I post about sweater weather and now I'm wearing a sweater dress. Yes, I'm very excited! I'm also giving myself a pat on the back for wearing this dress. The self praise isn't because it's a sweater dress. The pat on the back is for wearing a print so bold, so not me.

Since my style is classic and romantic, I veer away from loud prints at all costs. Give me a delicate pattern and I'm a happy girl. Yet, something about this dress peeked my interests. Maybe it's the familiar neutral colors of the unusual print or maybe, deep down, it's simply because it's a sweater dress. Either way, I'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried something different. Personal style risk FTW.

When was the last time you stepped out of your style comfort zone?

Here's a close up of my shoes since they didn't show in any of my outfit shots. Side note: taking photos by yourself with a tripod can sometimes be a challenge.
