The Striped Sweater Dress I Can’t Stop Wearing

You gotta love a piece of clothing that keeps you warm but still makes you feel feminine. Much like this black midi dress, the striped sweater dress featured in today’s post is is comfy, yet sexy. Not in a leggings-as-pants kind of way, but more of a classic fashion. I picked the blue and brown striped sweater dress from Sweetest Stitch. As you know already, this is one of my favorite Richmond area boutiques. The owner keeps the racks and website stocked with everyday essentials and flirty statement pieces. I plan to wear this with a variety of different layers like vests and ponchos as I mix and match shoe options like booties, sneakers and wedges. Here, I wore it with three favorite grey staples.

The Accessories

Can’t just wear a sweater dress to stay warm. I added on two warm-weather must-haves: knee-high boots and a crochet infinity scarf. These two items are in constant rotation in my closet. In fact, I recently broke the boots I’ve worn them so much. Even though the scarf seems bland, it goes with EVERYTHING. With infinity scarves, there is no fuss, either. It always falls the right way. Shop both of these items:

As for the bag, this was part of my giveaway event in December. I partnered with foreveRoane, a Richmond-based creator. She has a gorgeous line of handmade crochet bags. They’re perfect for days and nights when you don’t need to carry much around. Also, it’s like it was made to match with my crochet scarf.
