My Style: Keeping it Cute in Sweater Dresses and Over the Knee Boots
So the temperatures have finally hit a low where I can rock a few of my cold weather goods for the winter! (I am in Atlanta) I have been holding on to this coat and have been lusting for this puppy for the longest, but it has always been too warm to rock it, UNTIL NOW. Add to the fact that I wanted to play in a sweater dress and boots for the longest, and we have my latest outfit post! This Eleven60 coat, this Forever 21 sweater dress and these Ted & Muffy boots are all highlights of my ideal winter wardrobe!
Now, before I go into the look, I have to say that this year, for me is all about OWNING IT. If I am feeling segzy, sassy, playful, bold, edgy, or casual- owning that from head to toe. There have been times where I think I have slacked off a bit, but in my head I have this ideal I want to go for, but I fall back many a time out of comfort, fear, or just pure laziness. Well, in order to push myself out of my boundaries, out of my box, and out of my comfort zone, I have to OWN IT!
So this look is a bit sultry, playful, and bold- for me. I often feel this way on the INSIDE and wanted to let it come through on the outside! Hehehe, so I pulled this together.
This Eleven60 jacket? I paired with a dress and some boots, but honey, I can see myself rocking this jacket with a pair of jeans rolled up, a chic tee from #ShopTCFStyle, and an amazing pair of heels. I see a bodycon dress paired with some lace up boots nestled nicely under this jacket- basically keeping it sleek and a bit sassy to match the mood of this coat!
Now my dress? I do love a great plus size sweater dress and this burgundy sleeveless number from Forever 21 fit the bill, just nicely! The color, the fit, and the styling of it lends itself to be rocked from the early fall into winter, seamlessly! Oh, and the cost of the dress makes it even more awesome!
I teased these Empress boots from Ted & Muffy at the top of the fall season and they are so damn good. Hitting at the bottom of my thigh, well above the knee, these boots have enough polish and sass to take a whirl with more than a few pieces in my closet! Add to the fact that they fit my 17 inch calves, heyyyyyyyy boo. Work! (they do fit up to 20 inch calves!)
Individually, each item rocks and together, I am having a bit of fun, playing around town in this getup!
