Making A Sweater Dress Casual

Posted on: March 4, 2015

Today was Parent’s Night Out, 

so I opted for another opportunity to wear  a dress. 

I purposely opted to play down the dress and wear it a very casual way…

Typically a sweater dress hugs all your curves and can be quite figure flattering…

I chose to play that down and pair it with my Old Navy Olive Utility Jacket. 

Since I have olive fleece lined tights I couldn’t help myself…

I tried several scarves before settling on the brown and olive one. 

I really am lucky to have such a wonderful scarf collection!

Pairing this with this sweater dress with the utility jacket and the riding boots, 

created a much more casual look for the occasion.  

Gratitude

I am grateful that my son away at college is feeling better, as he was having sinus issues over the weekend. 

I am grateful that my husband was able to reschedule and make it to my son’s private bowling lesson today. 

I am grateful that my sister in law is doing better today, after a seizure last night.  I am grateful that she called me and that my daughter was able to call her an ambulance while I stayed on the phone with her. 

I am grateful for Parent’s Night Out and our supportive, kindhearted group. 

I am grateful that tomorrow is bowling day!  I love Hump Day!

Hi, Tracey. This is a great combination. Reminds me I need to incorporate my olive jacket into an outfit.

You chose the perfect scarf for this outfit Tracey! I love scarves, they really add a finishing touch and make a difference.

Thank you Carmen, I can’t imagine a wardrobe without the addition of scarfs. Then again, I am by no means a minimalist..

I, too, am a huge fan of sweater dresses!! You look great! Jodie

I’ve never had the guts to even try on a sweater dress! I see a lot of women styling them. I like how you styled yours! The jacket, tights and scarf are great! Love everything about this look! Blessings!

Thank you Ana, It really was fun to take a piece that is known for figure flattery and make it work for an everyday look.
