This is an outfit I wore on a chilly day to the hair dresser and running weekly errands. It was a cold day, so I wore tall boots. I always save those tall boots for the coldest of days to keep my legs warm. With those boots, I wore black leggings with a long burgundy sweater.
Believe it or not, this ended up being my Valentine Day's Outfit ha ha! I do all these posts on "What To Wear For Valentine's Day" and this is what I end up actually wearing. However, in my defense, I ended up choosing this outfit based on our activity. We chose to visit our local zoo and conservatory for our Valentine date. This required being comfortable in a car for two hours there and back, so I wore eggplant leggings for comfort. We would also be spending lots of time outdoors in 30 degree temperatures so I chose a turtleneck sweater to keep me warm. And because we would be on our feet all day, I chose comfortable hiking boots.
I paired the cardigan with a black tank, grey skinny jeans, and black suede 3 buckle booties.
And finally, I wanted to give you a sneak peek at my new Easter dress! I don't want to show any pictures of me wearing it just quite yet, but I wanted to show the dress now in case you're shopping for dresses. Items at TJMaxx disappear so fast, so if you need a dress, go now! They have some pretty ones.
I really wasn't looking for a new dress, I have plenty already. But as always, I go to TJMaxx to buy a mattress protector and I end up coming home with a dress. 🤣 TJMaxx is my danger store. I really need to stay out of there. Anyhow, I do have a wedding in late May too and I was starting to think about what to wear. They always say "Don't buy a new dress for a special occasion, you will never wear it again." But you know what the problem with that thinking is? You take pictures at special occasions and if you don't wear something new, you are wearing the same dress in every picture of every special event. Trust me. My husband is the perfect example. Every picture we have of him he's got the same outfit on. Someday my grandchildren are going to ask me "Grandma, were you and Grandpa poor that he couldn't afford more than one shirt?" ha ha!
Anyhow, this dress is by Tommy Hilfiger and cost $40. It is absolutely stunning on. The halter neck line is so flattering and the belt really accentuates the waist line. It is T-Length which I am so happy about. It's so hard to find a dress that is below the knee these days. I realize it could be really cold on Easter Sunday and I might have to wear a white cardigan with it or scrap wearing a dress altogether, which would be a bummer, but it's happened before! But I'm sure I'll be able to wear it to the wedding at the end of May (fingers crossed! We've gotten snow in May here too!).
So have you found your Easter dress yet? I'd love to hear from you!
Have A Great Day! Amy

I haven't even thought about my Easter dress yet. The thing is, I can probably finally wear one that makes me think about Easter instead of snow!!!ReplyDelete
I love the one you bought, and I couldn't agree more about TJMaxx...it's dangerous!!
Thanks Jodie. Yes, it has been so cold on past Easter's I've had to wear pants and a pastel sweater.Delete
Lovely dress! I have stayed away from TJ Maxx because I don't want to get tempted this month of no shopping but I do want to find a dress or 2 next month.ReplyDelete
Thank you, and don't wait too long, the nicest dresses disappear the fastest!Delete

What a beautiful Easter dress! I like all the outfits you pulled together this month.ReplyDelete
thanks so much!Delete
I have set all of my chunkier sweaters, thick knits, in the guest bedroom to store away but seeing you in your pretty white sweater makes me want to get my white sweater back out for one more wear.ReplyDelete
Cannot wait to see how you style your Easter dress. I am thinking this is the spring/summer I embrace more maxi dresses and skirts for casual wear.
Oh, I wish it were warm enough to pack away the sweaters, but sadly it is not. Thanks so much!Delete

Well, the way it looks now, we will be lucky if anyone can even celebrate Easter. Hopefully I can still go to the wedding in May and wear it then.Delete
