This Striped Sweater Dress Is My New Favorite Thing


I’ve been wearing J.Crew’s striped sweater dress almost nonstop.  It’s comfy and cute – effortless, really, because it falls into that sweet spot of maaaybe I’m dressed up or maybe I’m just casually hanging out.  It could be EITHER.  Nobody knows!  Casual afternoon screening of my friends’ movie?  I wore the dress.  Thanksgiving dinner?  I wore the dress.  Walking to get the kids from school?  I wore the dress.

I’ve actually been meaning to write this one up for weeks now, but….ya know, life. The good news is that the dress is part of the Black Friday/Cyber Monday craziness, and has almost all sizes in stock.  I bought mine in store, because the cuvry-girl salesperson was rocking hers so well.  It’s the kind of dress that doesn’t look like much on the hanger….but looks amazing on.

Outfit Details

THE DRESS:  J.Crew Striped Turtleneck Sweater Dress – 40% OFF! – I’m wearing an XXS regular, but could’ve gone with petites for a shorter length – the salesperson did warn me to size down, however, and she was right.

Over-the-knee boots:  Weitzman lowlands – most of the black friday Weitzmans are long gone….but I did find Weitzman thighlands still in stock (and on sale) at Zappos! 

jacket: Joe Fresh Sherpa-collar denim jacket (xs) – 50% off!

backpack: Rebecca Minkoff Medium Julian (seems to be on sale at Amazon)….or try this one at Rebecca Minkoff (they’re doing 25% off orders over $100, and 30% off orders over $250).  The size I’m wearing used to be called the “medium Julian”….but it looks like they’ve changed things and this one is now called the “mini”.

sock booties: Free People Cecile booties – these are my VERY FAVORITE booties right now.  The black velvet is on sale, too.

Happy shopping!
