Happy Wednesday lovelies. Since I was a little girl, I always felt happy when the mid-week came. It’s probably psychological; you know the proximity of the day to Friday and all haha. Plus on Wednesdays, I volunteer in my youngest daughter’s classroom. It’s so lovely reading with the kids, and seeing their progress.

On the style end, I found some super cute, and many very reasonably priced pieces that I put together below. Following my board of favorites of the week, I’ll show you how to wear a
sweatshirt dress in a casual outfit with one of my picks.  It’s a sweater dress  elevated with the most girly, and beautiful sleeves. The good news? The dress is only $16!!!

Before we move on to my sweatshirt dress outfit, I want to show you these beauties that caught my eye.

When I posted a sneak peak on Facebook, I got questions about the company both under the post and via private messages.

I myself got to try Shein for the first time with my dress. I can say I liked the fact that the company offers trendy, in fashion items, at can’t beat prices. These pieces are great to try trends with without breaking the bank. ( we all know trends do come and go) They would supplement my high quality, staple pieces, and add some fun to my wardrobe. My package took about  a week to 8 days to arrive. ( also LOVE this very light jacket, this colorful cardigan , and this lace hem dress)


When you are ordering from Shein, make sure to take a look at the measurements of the piece, and measure yourself & compare. For instance, in this dress, I actually came out to be a small (I am usually an XS) After measuring myself, and choosing small, the fit turned out to be just right.

As you’ll see below, my casual sweater dress outfit is all about the over the knee, black suede boots. These two options are pretty fab; this flat on sale, and this low heel pair.

Online, when browsing through pieces, I was immediately taken by the contrasting, pleated sleeves of this dress, and the adorableness that are the bows. I love the mix of super girly, and trendy so I thought the dress was very me. I was not quite sure how the fabric would feel like. It turned out to be a very soft, sweatshirt type of fabric. 


I like the middle stripe that goes all the way down the length of the dress. You can see it better above.


Style Tip: The casual sweatshirt fabric of the dress inspired me to create an everyday outfit around it. I have these suede over the knee boots that are flat, and very comfortable. I recommend you to wear long and flat boots like these with dresses that are on the shorter side. The long boots balance out the length of the dress and make it so much more day appropriate.


Style Tip: My days are very fast-paced, and at any given time besides my wallet, I love to carry my calendar ( yes I still use a traditional one – love paper products what can I say 🙂 ) , a book to read while waiting, the kids necessities, and a tablet with me along with a couple items of makeup. When I carry a smaller purse I usually leave all of the above in my car. I have gorgeous big bags like this sold out Isabella Fiore one that let me carry the world around. (See more styles from the brand here)
