Outfit Repeater: Sweater Dress
I know it hasn't been long since the last time that I wore & featured this sweater dress on the blog. But honestly, there is such a small window of time in Ontario that a sweater dress is weather appropriate - and also we need to normalize rewearing our clothes (especially in the blogging and internet sphere of fashion content).
Honestly, it's not like the outfit has changed all that drastically either, since I feel like the dress is the star of the show. I paired it with tights, knee-high boots and a tote bag (all in black) and let the sweater dress shine.
Speaking of tights, I recently purchased Sheertex tights and I'm excited to try them out. I shred tights pretty easily, so fingers crossed they work for me. Of course, I'm not wearing the sheertex in this photo (typical of me haha) - I'm wearing old H&M tights. They have a few snags in them, but I don't want to crack on a pair of new tights until my old ones are unwearable.
I'd also love to hear your opinions on the high knee boots trend! I remember back in the highschool days, I wore knee high boots religiously - up until midway through undergrad. I only stopped wearing knee high boots because mine broke (the zipper, alas) and they were no good enough quality boots to warrant repairing (faux peeling leather, worn down sole, holes). And then because of the price I never invested in a nice quality pair.
I've been on the hunt for boots for quite a while but I wanted a pair that either hugged my leg nicely or that was a looser fit - but everything I found was kind of in between. I stumbled across this pair in the clearance section of Nordstrom Rack and fell in love! They're really high quality and the leather is so nice. Good size low heel, really comfortable to walk in - it was a win-win. It kind of reminds me of my grade 9 self, like I've come full circle!
Have you ever come full circle and started wearing what your high school self loved?!
