Grey Day, Grey Dress

It is a rainy week here in the PNW! Last night it was really coming down. I managed to get to work without an umbrella, but days like this (we have a lot here) make me just want to wear something comfy and cozy. Pencil skirts do not appeal as much when it is yucky out. A sweater dress, leggings, and boots are my go to for days like this – easy, warm, and the boots keep my feet nice and dry. I have been trying to stock up when I find cute ones at a good price. I generally wear a lot of color, but sometimes it is nice to have a good neutral one, and then the accessories can stand out. The scarf tied on my purse is the Missoni for Target one I ordered and I added a sparkly necklace as well.

I actually picked this dress up at Ross without trying it on, but it ended up being just right. These boots were also a Ross find – BCBGeneration for $69, the wedge heel is great. I know some people get overwhelmed shopping at places like Ross because there is a lot of crap to sort through. I pretty much go there strictly for the dresses and shoes. If I see a top of something that catches my eye right away I might try it on, but otherwise I head straight to the dresses to flick through them quickly, and then head to the shoe department to see if there are any treasures.

What is your go to outfit for bad weather days?

Oh my god, I LOVVVVVVVVVE this dress! I immediately looked to see where you got it in hopes of completely pirating your look 🙂 Well, you’ve given me encouragement to go buy a new sweater dress and some tights. I’ve been on a giant boot quest for a long time now, though, because apparently I have small calves, so none of them fit me right. As soon as I fix that problem, I will commence with the sweater dresses. You are ROCKIN’ this one!

    Thanks Erin! Check out The Loft, they seem to have a lot of cute ones right now! Can’t help with the boots, I have the opposite problem!

    I’ve been loving your site for a while, though I don’t recall how I found it 🙂 Erin, I have super skinny calves too and my best luck has been Cole Haan! Especially if you can find an outlet.

This combination is TO DIE FOR! Gray is my absolutely favourite colour and the pop of bright colour with the purse just sets it off perfectly.

Gosh, I love a sweater dress, you can’t beat the comfort. But they are not that easy to fit. Great find with this one!
