Sucker For a Sweater Dress

I love sweater dresses!!  They make it so easy to throw together a cute outfit and I buy at least 2 or 3 every fall/winter!  This particular one is one of my favorites because of it’s subtle blue/gray color.  Toss on some boots and voilà, I’m dressed!  Also, threw on my new trench because it was raining and I’m loving this classic addition to my wardrobe.

My post is so late today because I spent most of the evening working on my costume.  I’m happy to report that it’s pretty much done!  I finished sewing the circle skirt (using this tutorial), which was fairly easy, except when my old sewing machine was being finicky, and decorating the other elements involved.  You’ll get to see the full outfit sometime this weekend ;)  Hope you’re having fun with your Halloween preparations!
