I Wore: Oversized Sweater Dress

16 October 2011

After the awesome comfort and very fall-esque look of the cardiwrap that I fell in love with I couldn't resist this oversized sweater dress when I saw it in the shops yesterday.

Be cool. Yep, totally got that look down!
I picked it up at H&M along with several other things that you'll be seeing in the coming days/weeks. They also do this in black. I love the chunky rolled back edge on the sleeves and neck. I wore it out to dinner with the boyfriend last night. We went for Spanish tapas at this lovely new restaurant near us, it was delicious, definitely a new fav. I wore the sweater with...(because I really am addicted)...

...drum roll please...

..some black leggings!! Haha!

If you don't know about my addiction then you should read my post, Confessions of a Leggingaholic. 
On my feet I opted for some black suede slouchy boots because yet again I was feeling the comfort factor. Must be getting old. Ah crap! *cries* Really don't want to think about that!

H&M Oversized Sweater
Sorry that shot came out a little blurry. Only remembered to take one on the way home and I suppose the wine had got the better of my photographer's (bf) steady hand. I took my Bally bag because all my smaller handbags and clutches looked a little puny next to the mass of sweater. The same went for jewellry, I tried on a tonne of necklaces but in the end took the pendant off a necklace and put it onto this longer chunkier chain. When the sweater is so oversized it just doesn't look right to do delicate accessories in my opinion. If you're going to do something, you've got to do it all the way, don't you think?

I'm just relishing the cooler weather and chance to wear these thicker items with all the material. Three weeks ago I would have cooked. My boyfriend must think I look so darn sexy in all these huge-ass cardigans and sweaters with leggings. Hahaha!  I swear I'm going to wear something a bit more figure hugging soon and I might even ditch the leggings for a day, you never know!

In the meantime though let me know what you think? Do you like chunky knits and oversized sweater dresses?

I hope you've had a great weekend!
