Just Breathe...

When I woke up feeling the beginnings of the sickies coming on, I wanted to wear something comfortable and non-restrictive...this slightly shapeless a-line cotton dress seemed to fit the bill.  This sweater is like wearing a big blanket... too bad I was at the stage of sweating it out...not fun sweating in a sweater... 

I am not very creative when styling this sweater...the few times I have worn it it was over different incarnations of plain back dresses.  Hmm...I guess I could wear it with jeans.

The fact that I am sick again really pisses me of.  I thought I had kicked this flu/sinus thing...guess I was wrong.  I might just have to suck it up and get a CT scan to see what is constantly clogging my sinuses. I have had more than enough poking, prodding and tests over the last few years...I was hoping to avoid more doctors...

Definitely with jeans, or slacks. I do like it with the dress though, you look great!

I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. And I know the idea of more tests isn't appealing, but it'd be nice to get answers and feel better.

Oooh. Sinus infection? Perhaps an allergy? Are you on any type of meds for it? My ex-boyfriend had similar problems...he got some basic form of nasal spray and it took care of it. But it sounds like you've already been there, done that. Well, I hope you feel better soon!

I LOVE this sweater. I like how you wore it. What about wearing it with black pants? Or white denim? You could totally rock it.

Being sick is totally the worst...I hope you feel better soon :)
This sweater is so cute!! I don't think it really needs to be "styled" because it's so fun as the statement piece of an outfit!

Sorry you're coming down with the sickies. I'm just over one myself and it wasn't fun. I hope yours is quick and you get to rest up.

That sweater is way cute. Love it.

ugh, sorry to hear you are getting sick again, i hope it goes quickly.

Love that sweater, it would be so perfect with light denim and brown suede.

I love this sweater styled over a dress! Long sweaters and jeans don't work for me, so I avoid them in general because I never thought about pairing them with a dress! Though yeah, probably not the most comfortable on a 50 degree day :)

I hope you start feeling better! I'm always having sinus issues, and it's definitely no fun.

I swear, when you have kids, it seems like you just stay sick during the winter months! It sucks!! I like the sweater you're wearing with the dress. It mixes it up a little bit.

And I absolutely LOVE that blue ring and your mani!!

That's too bad your getting sick, there's nothing like a cozy sweater to make you feel better. Love the print on yours :)

i bet that sweater would look awesome with a rust or red dress or maybe dark brown? something in the same tone. it's a great sweater and i love the pattern/colors.
