Turncoat

When is a coat not really a coat?? When it’s a dress, of course!!

Ever since I first wore this sweater dress (check it out in my “It’s all in the sleeves” post!), I’ve been thinking of how to re-style it as more of an outerwear piece…and here’s the result!! My black leggings and tall boots provide sleek contrast against the oversized, textured sleeves of the dress; and even though I liked the look without a belt, I decided to add one for just a little bit more shape.

My leopard-print snood was an afterthought…but I’m so glad I went with it!! It definitely gave everything more of that urban, outdoorsy vibe that I was feeling today!!

    I love the last picture πŸ™‚ and the outfit – of course. This sweater / dress, I like it very much – the last time and now again. These sleeves are very special. And the leo-afterthought fits perfectly – even more so if it corresponds to your feeling. This is indeed the most important thing.
    You really have a very good taste – love Monika. By the way, we were lucky – the snow has melted πŸ™‚ Have a nice weekend, Conny xx

      Thanks so much, Anett!! I was really pleased how these pieces came together just the way I visualized; I'm sure everyone can agree that it doesn't ALWAYS happen that way!! πŸ˜‰

      Hello dear Shara!! Thank you for the sweet compliment, but I'm going to pass a large part of it off to my husband; he's getting better and better with the camera (and bossier, too, I might add!!)
