This was definitely one of the comfiest outfits I wore when I was in the UK. The weather wasn’t quite chilly enough to need a full coat, but a sweater dress and cashmere cape was juuusssst right!

When I had originally packed this look, I had folded the cape just so, so that I could belt it in a certain way, etc. Well I forget how windy it can be out in the country with no buildings to block the breeze.  So as I was basically fighting this cape in the wind like an ungraceful crazy person, I surrendered and just thought… hopefully I won’t look like a potato in these pictures.

They turned out better than I had anticipated considering I had to keep my sunglasses on as I had not slept in 48 hours due to an adverse reaction to Bendadryl, so…. cheers!

Sometimes a sweater dress can seem bulky or too shapeless, but a thin belt can cinch your waist to give you a little shape.  And this time of year, nothing sounds more cozy and comfortable than a sweater dress, right?

  1. I am SO sorry you had a reaction like that. I have taken Benadryl my entire life and didn’t know that was even possible. Funny thing though, I never would have known that’s why you kept the sunglasses on if you didn’t share it. You looked flawless to me!!



  2. I found it interesting that the dress was from Chicwish. I love a lot of their pieces but have been scared to order due to the mixed reviews on the time it takes to get orders, weird sizing and inconsistent quality. Did you feel this was true to size? How was the quality of the dress?

    1. I find their pieces either true to size or slightly large so when in doubt I size down. I’ve never had trouble ordering from them, but have never attempted a return as I assume it would be challenging – so order without the thought of returning! As for quality, I’ve always been pleased. I think you get what you pay for. Hope that helps –
