Sweater Dress Finds Under $100

Express dress xxs, similar shoes, similar headband, AT earrings (updated), Hermes belt (look for less)
Similar flocked trees (we love KOC “slim” trees for a smaller footprint), our holiday decor

Last week when the little ones got all dolled up, I couldn’t resist joining in on the fun and snapping some photos together! It’s been a moment since I put on something other than casual wear, but this knit dress (50% off!) is one of those pieces that look striking with minimal effort. It’s stretchy and comfortable which my postpartum body appreciates, yet it still made me feel quite shapely and glam. It’d be a great option for flattering holiday photos, or if you’re just getting dressed up with family at home.
As an added bonus, this dress is nursing friendly with the wrap front pulling down easily (I wore it with this lightly padded nursing bra that I love), and it’d be darling over a baby bump too (plenty of stretch in the material). I only wish it came in petite sizing, as the regular runs a little long on me in the length and sleeve length, which I have folded underneath – I’m 5 feet tall and 105lb right now, for fit reference!

    Hi. I think you are wearing a diamond eternity band on your pointer finger. Pictures aren’t close up. Can you tell me where it is from and what ct size? I live in the Boston area and my ring finger size is 3.25. It is hard to find an eternity band around 2.5 cts without being custom made in my size. Thanks.

    Hi Jean, I’m 4’10, in my early 20s, and trying to build a sophisticated wardrobe like yours. One staple I’ve been looking for (with no success) is a wool coat with a defined, tapered waist. I was wondering if you have suggestions or are planning to do a blog post this winter!

    I love that black sweater dress, but how do you keep the top wrap portion from being too low cut. I’m 5’0″, maybe slightly shorter I hate to say, and many tops are just too low cut for. Or should I say I’m not comfortable with such a low cut. What would you use to secure it without ruining the fabric or looking like a tacky fast fix?
