Brrr. It's cold out there. Sweater dresses are the perfect style answer to the question: What will I wear today? I got this dress at Barney's a while back. It's a navy knit dress that's warm and cozy.
The problem with this dress is that it get a little dowdy with just leggings underneath. When I styled this I wanted to add some sass. So I slipped on some Urban Outfitters stockings to spice things up.
This look requires some confidence. It's not going to make your thighs look any thinner, but it is fun!
From there I added old, but recently shined (TIP: don't forget to shine your boots ladies!) Ralph Lauren riding boots (get similar boots here) and a fabulous Patricia Nash backpack ($248). A vintage hat box in an antique shop in Bologna, Italy inspired the Over Dye collection from Patricia Nash. Perfect for stylish moms, this bag can hold everything you need and still leave your hands free. Each bag has unique character. Get similar here
Did I mention the necklace? I saw this at a recent Avon video shoot. The fabulous ladies at Avon sent this collar necklace from Mark home with me. Score!
