Winter Is Coming: Sweater Dresses & Boots


Wow. Okay. I haven't done this in awhile. It's been one of those semesters where I haven't really had a moment to just stop and breathe- as soon as whatever I had to get done finally got done, there was another thing that needed to be dealt with immediately after, and another, and now I here I am in December, nearly finished with my next to last semester at NYU. I've also been rotating in the same T-shirt dress + kimono combo for the last three months so I haven't really felt compelled to write an outfit post, but I was recently inspired after a long overdue shopping spree (thank you @ Black Friday sales!!) and here we are. I've pretty much been living in this sweater dress + military coat + over the knee boots combination- it has style, it's comfortable, and it's just edgy enough to infuse me with a little extra confidence while I run around the city like a maniac.


This black sweater dress is from Tobi and it's probably the best purchase I've ever made- the neckline is cut out to create a choker effect and let me just say, I've never felt so good in a sweater dress. I like to stick to structured waistlines and flared skirts because I think it's the most flattering cut on me but this sweater dress has changed my life. I paired it with extra long gold and crystal earrings for a fun luxe effect- I love the idea of having diamonds in my hair and this is as close as I can get (for now). 


I kept things neutral with my bag- funny story, my mom went and got this satchel in a different shade of grey so we pretty much have matching bags. I'm a huge fan of the gold hardware on this particular bag- Marc Jacob never disappoints. Even though my outfit's relatively simple, I accessorized with just a ring to keep the look from being overwhelmingly complicated.



I love pairing the sweater dress with this long dark green military style coat (Forever 21) because of the contrast between the dress length and the coat length. It's glamorous without trying too hard. And it keeps me warm! Well, warm enough anyway. Black over-the-knee boots (Public Desire) complete the look- longer boots are great for elongating your legs for a really flattering look and honestly, they really do keep your legs warm. There's also something fun about not wearing tights during the winter so I'm going to keep doing that as long as I can without freezing.

 

I've been able to wear this outfit to class, to work, and even out to holiday parties. It works for everything and anything- which is what you should remember when you see me wearing it every day for the next month. Alright, it's been great procrastinating but I should probably get back to the papers I should be writing. I actually finish with finals pretty soon but I'll be hanging around the city for an extra week because of work so I might end up blogging more. Who knows, it'll be a surprise.
