Belted Sweater Dress + a Sephora Giveaway!

The last time I wore a sweater dress, I likened it to being able to wear a Snuggie all day. And I’m sticking with that. But I’ve found that if you’re looking to snazz up that comfy look while still being, well comfortable, then a belt is a great way to pull the outfit together with minimal fuss and effort.Add a belt to a sweater dress


This cowl-neck sweater dress is great on its own, but I felt like it was lacking something. My leather turnlock belt was a great addition. It provided a little bit of structure and tied in the leather boots.
