Fit and Flare Sweater Dress

This dress is so cute you’d never guess I found it on the clearance rack– a perfect find for the last few weeks of winter. Styling a fit and flare sweater dress that is totally appropriate for the office, a lunch date, or happy hour with the co-workers. Keep reading to see how I gave this under $10 dress major style.

Since my last style post was layers + dress + OTK boots I wasn’t sure if I should share back to back.  And even though there has been some snow flurries today, I am hopeful the days to packing away the winter boots is in my near future. Plus this look is so different- a bit more preppy so I am sharing anyway.

I found this A New Day Fit sweater dress on a Target clearance rack for about $8 in February. I had hopes to do a Valentine’s look or maybe even wear it on Valentine’s Day but that fell through. Pretty certain I never changed out of red VS Knockout tights that day.

I really like the cut of the fit and flare dress. The material is a good thickness for warmth but not add bulk. Seeing it on the model, I agree with the reviewers that it is more short than pictured. Which is okay with me because I wanted to wear OTK boots and this top with this dress. While in store I thought about layering it with this ancient dress shirt bodysuit from (back when Vicki’s sold clothes) and my black OTK LC Lauren Conrad boots. If I was still employed this outfit I would wear to the office. Now a-days it’s an outfit I would wear to meet my husband for lunch or meet him for a happy hour with his co-workers. It is a perfect balance of professional and trendy!

Ruffle Bomber Jacket

Ruffle Bomber Jacket | Style In Shape

It’s safe to say that my obsession for outerwear is always present (but it kicks into high gear when the weather turns cool!). So when I saw this ruffle bomber jacket at Kohl’s over the summer, I knew it would be a great addition to my jacket collection. Little did I know that ruffle bomber jackets would be so popular for fall this year! Have you seen this one at Target? I was there the other day, and loved the feel of the material! (and under $30!) I’m pretty sure I am channeling the 80’s or 90’s in this outfit because something […]

Transition into Fall with a Denim Vest

Happy Labor Day friends! I hope you’ve enjoyed the weekend! We were fortunate to catch a breakfast with some friends that were in town visiting. Then the little man had a birthday party. We also visited a gorgeous sunflower field, enjoyed burgers at a favorite joint and had some fun at Alter Fest (a local festival). Not to mention lots of hang out time at home. It was a pretty perfect weekend! Fall tempted us with her refreshing cool weather earlier this weekend but the last two days it’s been HOT. I did grab a #PSL, so there’s that! Hello […]
