So yesterday I did this thing were I went out and I bought clothes...and it was so great. I LOVE SHOPPING, GUYS. I love it.
ANYWAYS. I got an adorable little lace, '50s dress from H&M that I will probably put pictures up of next week, and in the meantime I have an outfit of the day for y'all. (Notice the excellent lighting and high-quality camera-work. Jokes). I'm wearing a Madewell sweaterdress, Hue brown tights, a vintage belt, and Frye Melissa button boots.
So the story with this dress. I hate sweaterdresses. They scare me. They are generally so not flattering, with the thick, clingy knit fabric. This one, however, is a nice balance of warm but not bulky fabric and a close, but not clingy fit. Horizontal stripes also usually scare me, but I think the thickness of the stripes and their cream/coral palette makes them feel fun and fresh. It has a flattering v-neck and thin stripes on the sleeve cuffs with little buttons down the back, and it's really comfy and I love it. I'm not a preppy girl at ALL, but I really like this with tights and equestrian boots. It feels very clean and classic.
AND IT WAS $20. It was on sale at Madewell for $30 in store, and then it was on double sale! For $20, it was a total steal, especially since I think it can be dressed up or down nicely, and work for class or work.
