So I have worn this exact same outfit on the blog before #sorrynotsorry! What’s also a bit weird is that I wore it pretty much exactly this time last year too – dun dun DUUUNN!! I didn’t say that this Style Challenge was going to be all unique outfits, and it can be kind of difficult to create brand new outfits in the cold winter weather when all you want to wear is this super cosy knitted dress and the only thing you can find to go with it is a pair of black heels!
To be honest, this dress isn’t exactly easy to wear. Despite being really comfortable – it’s super stretchy and is made of a really soft knitted fabric – there are a couple of features that make it difficult to pair with other things:
1. The sleeves – I have an issue with jumpers and dresses that are made from wool or similar (ie. supposed to be warm) but that have less than full length sleeves. It means that you can either have chilly forearms (and I’m always cold, so I do!) or you’ll have to struggle to layer something over the top – I say “struggle” because have you ever tried wearing a cardigan over knitwear?!
2. The length. It’s a lovely midi length which keeps you warmer and looks cool, but has anyone figured out how to wear fitted true midi dresses (ie. mid calf) with anything except heeled pumps?! Ankle boots just chop your legs up and look weird, and flats are just too…flat with it. So heels it is!
Anyways, I rewear outfits and life goes on! How is life for everyone right now? I’ve just got a new crazily awesome planner at work that I’m obsessed with, and I also got a bullet journal for Christmas from my sister, plus I have my One Line a Day Journal too, so my life is feeling very organised right now – we’ll see how long that lasts! To be honest, I feel like I’ve been needing a planner to get my life in order for a while and to get the craziness out of my brain and onto paper so I don’t forget things. I’m mostly just loving how pretty the giant planner is on my desk at the moment though, can you blame me?
