Finally I thought of wearing a sweater over a dress. I have seen it so many times on other bloggers, I am always late to the party, and always forgot to wear it that way. The day I wore this outfit I was so totally uninspired. My sister and brother-in-law would come over for coffee in the morning, so I didn’t have half the day to think about an outfit. Not that I normally do that. Anyway, then you stand in front of your wardrobe(s) and you just don’t know what to wear. Everything looks boring, I could not see what worked together etc.
When you want to wear a sweater over a dress but have no inspiration…..at all
I actually wanted to wear a dress with a sweater over it, but I didn’t know which dress, which sweater, etc. etc. Then a skirt, no, I dtdn’t feel like wearing a skirt. Trousers? I had the only one I wanted to wear in mind for the next day. So leaves the sweater and dress. I’m actually not a fan of green and black together, reminds me too much of a Christmas tree…… But I had this on and then the doorbell rang. Shit, had to get the sneakers out of the closet, take a look in the mirror , I’m missing something…….necklace…..okay. Et voila!
When I looked back at the photos I thought: maybe a belt could have been used for a little more waist. I added one later but I found that too busy, I had belt it on the sweater. Later on I thought, I could have put the belt over the dress and tucked the sweater in a little bit. Why do I always have that afterwards!! So I did that afterwards and it really looked so much better. So I also took a quick mirror picture of it so you can see it. So imagine for a moment that all photos are with that belt please.
Wearing black and green and not looking like a Christmas tree
Well you might think, then just take new photos, but unfortunately I didn’t have the energy for that. Sometimes I feel like I’m always showing you outfits that I’m never 100% satisfied with. Or am I just never 100% satisfied at all……..sigh…..sometimes I get so tired of myself, lol, but always with a wink!
This outfit I really liked after I belted it the right way. The green and black didn’t bother me at all. Depends on the shade of green, this is not a Christmas shade of green. And the white stitching in the dress breaks up the colour areas in a somewhat playfull way, whitch matches also with the sneakers.
The dress is a summer dress but not that that thin. So perfect to wear now with a sweater. The necklace is pre loved. I don’t like pre loved accessories that much. Think it’s a bit dirty, do you know what I mean. I need to clean it several times and then still some hesitation and aversion crawls up my neck. I have to get over that. Do you like my sweater over dress look?
