This outfit is a long time coming to the blog. I've worn it a few times, and even photographed it once before this, but I was having trouble getting it right. Neither this dress nor this sweater seem to be very photogenic, and I had some trouble finding the right pair of tights (in case you were wondering, navy tights looked exceptionally bad with this outfit!).

The reason, I think, that this outfit was so hard to get on the blog is the same reason I love it so much: it's just glorified pajamas. The dress is a excessively roomy and the sweater is warm and cozy. If we're being completely honest here, I even took an accidental couch nap in this outfit recently. If that doesn't scream blog worthy, I don't know what does.


  1. You had me at pjs.

  2. But seriously, how can you resist glorified pjs? This is why I love sweater dresses and leggings.

  3. This outfit does look really cozy!! And that sweater - <3

  4. Best (and most true) title ever! Sign me up for any clothing that falls into that category!!

  5. Haha, the best clothes are the ones you can take naps in anyway. And I have items like that -- super cute and comfy in real life, horrible in pictures. Oh, well. You look pretty, and also comfortable!

  6. That dress looks crazy cozy + that color is great on you!

    xo, Maddy
