Still on the subject of my cahoots with Dusty Rose Vintage...

A SOOOOOOO CUDDLY, yet super chic 1980s Sweater Dress

While to some this may not seem like a typical go-to piece for me,
I'll have you know--it can be just that.

On occasion, I find myself veering toward a very classic, kind of all-american look.
This usually happens during the chillier winter months when a nice chunky sweater allows me to jump back in time to when I actually used to dress like that everyday of my life.
(think midwest 15year old, Friday night football games, blonde high ponytails with white ribbons--that was me).

So while personal style changes, a comfort from nostalgia will always be there.
This dress is a more grown-up version of that All-American girl I sometimes remember being.
And this my friends...its why I enjoy a nice piece of classic goodness such as this sweater dress!

I think it would look amazing with a pair of riding boots, spending time in the countryside, a few herding dogs trailing behind at my heels.
(Or maybe I'm just conjuring up visions of a Ralph Lauren ad, or a leisurely life worth trying out)

All I can tell you is this dress is worthy of some serious favoritism in a girl's winter wardrobe.
Very easy, and very perfect- classic, clean, simplistic chic!

Wearing:
*1980s cozy cream sweater dress

Lovely dress!

Hearing about your fifteen year old self made me smile since you seem so much edgier/rocker now, but have no qualms about revealing past fashion choices. :)
