Sweater Weather | Maroon Stripe Sweater Dress

So I know I go on and on about wearing bright colors throughout the year but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate darker colors such as maroon. I love maroon because of the way it contrasts with my skin tone. Its a darker red that can be mistaken for a brown thats darker than my skin tone. Although I also love wearing nude tones, sometimes I like to take it a little darker so I opted for a maroon stripe sweater dress.

Sweater dresses are one of my faves to wear during cooler months. They’re comfortable and like any other dress, makes it easier to get dressed (one and done).

For some, a short sleeve sweater dress isn’t practical. For me its just right.

I accessorized with a maroon Calvin Klein cross body bag which I wore as a clutch.

These shoes are an oldie but goodie as I’ve had them for about 4 years. One would think that the mesh material may lead me to wear it during the spring or summer but for some reason, I only pull these out during the fall.

I have been loving tassel earrings for so long now and I think its an accessory for every girl! Tassel earrings instantly takes the look to another level.
