Rose Sweater Dress







OUTFIT DETAILS

With Valentine's Day upon us, I couldn't think of a better sweater dress to share with you all! Chicwish sent me yet another stunning dress that's perfect for perking up your wardrobe during this bleak midwinter. They have some of the most stunning pieces for every season, but I'm loving the winter options to keep my closet from feeling stale and boring this time of year.

I was particularly excited to snag this dress as it's very similar to a designer option but for a fraction of the price. It did come with a tie waist which I removed since I felt it distracted from my favorite part of this dress: the neck tie! It's actually a button that does not need to be tied or adjusted in any way, but still makes such a cute statement! I paired it with a delicate pearl headband and blush/neutral accessories, but I love wearing it with brown tights and a beret to keep extra warm.




This was the first time in a while that I've gone all out with my eye shadow and it was fun to play with some tried-and-true favorites I'd been neglecting. I always lean towards neutrals and warm tones, so it was easy to pair a mauve sweater dress with a pinkish shadow look. I'll be dishing all the details on this entire makeup look soon, so be sure to stick around! I'm a big fan of affordable makeup, so I know this look will be totally doable no matter what your budget may be.




If you're on the shorter side like me, this dress is a perfect length--not too short, not too long. The slightly puffed sleeves are trendy without being too fashion-forward so you can definitely still wear this look long after the puff-sleeve trend passes. If you're looking for a way to spice up your wardrobe for these last few weeks of winter, look for a sweater dress! A rosy, mauve color like this one is just made for Valentine's Day date, galentine's brunch, or even a day out in those early, still-chilly days of spring!

New year, new glasses! How much of a nerd does it make me that I get very excited about a new pair of frames? I just like to have options and this vintage-inspired pair arrived just in time for me to style this darling twinset dress from Chicwish. I have loved partnering with them to try out more vintage styles and expand my wardrobe with affordable, yet high quality items! They have some of the nicest skirts on the market and their knits are such a great deal for the price.

Speaking of getting a bang for your buck, this dress is actually a twinset, meaning it's two pieces! If you have another blouse that matches, you could easily pair it underneath the classic pinafore for a whole new look and the white blouse is a staple every girl should have on rotation! Bow neck blouses are some of my favorites for dressing up skirts, layering spring dresses for cooler weather, or just jazzing up a simple sweater!







Since this dress and blouse combo makes a pretty good statement all on its own, I thought I'd keep the accessories simple, opting for my usual browns/tans and throwing in this fun gold hair clip to lift up my Bardot-inspired hair 'do! This outfit makes me think of a sixties university look (think Brianna in Outlander!), so I was thrilled when my cat eye glasses arrived in time to wear them all together.

My vintage style doesn't usually err on the side of mod/sixties, but this dress was a fun way to incorporate a little bit of that fun era into my wardrobe. I got so many compliments that I can't wait to wear it again! What's your favorite bygone era? Do you like to wear those styles with your modern wardrobe or prefer to admire them from afar?
