Better than a Sweatshirt


This ensemble is my answer to those chilly, lazy mornings when you still want to look put together!

My primary motivation in starting Whitney à la mode was to motivate myself and to hold myself accountable for dressing more fashionably.  One area where I have always struggled with looking put together has been with comfy clothes.  Before discovering personal style blogs, my go-to outfit on lazy mornings was a sweatshirt and jeans.  While there is absolutely nothing wrong with sweatshirts, I have been trying to step up my game!

I love this outfit because it is as comfortable as a sweatshirt while looking like I put a little bit of thought into my clothing.  The key to this ensemble is an extremely comfy dress!  Then I just added cozy layers until the look was completed.

  3. I adore this dress on you! I was thinking about buying it, but I was apprehensive after reading the reviews. Did you find issues with the fit/sizing? (It seems like it fits you perfectly.) I really like the way you styled it!

    1. Thank you! I often struggle when deciding whether to order smalls or mediums in clothes. I got this dress in a medium and honestly could have sized down. The top could be a little bit more fitted. That being said, since I like this dress for comfy mornings, I'm ok with it being a bit loose. Everything else fits well and proportionally, though!

  4. I LOVE that dress! I've been looking at a similar one at LOFT, but this one definitely has a better waistline for me as the other one was empire. It looks totally adorable on you and I love how you styled it up!
