I don’t dress up very often. Honestly, I don’t have a need to since I do my work from home. However, there are times when I do like to ditch the sweats and tees for something that looks nice. That happens weekly when I go to church and then also when I attend holiday parties and events. However, I’m not one to also go over the top.
For me, I want to look good, but I also need to be true to who I am and what I wear. A fancy dress and shoes are reserved for extremely special events. I will take comfort over style pretty much any day of the week.
When the folks at Chadwicks of Boston asked me to review another outfit for them, I jumped at the chance! After all, I had reviewed a dress (which I wore for my son’s First Communion in April) and another outfit which I can dress up or down (depending upon my mood). I knew that they had cute clothes that I would love!
They sent over a black and white skirt, black tights and a black cardigan. For me, this was a simple idea for those days when I wanted to dress up a little (but not too much).
I LOVE the skirt! It was so cute!! In this photo I am wearing flats and tights, but I also have worn it with my black boots and loved it just as much! It is lined, so I had no issues with the “skirt and tights conflict” which sometimes occurs. The only thing is that I either lost weight (he he he) or it ran a bit big. So, I would keep that in mind if you plan on ordering one.
The tights were probably one of my favorite items! They were super comfy and I’ve since worn them with other sweater dresses. They also work perfectly when I wear my boots as I can keep my legs warm, without the added bulk of leggings. They just make other items lay much nicer then when I wear leggings.
Lastly was the cardigan. Layered with a turtle neck (as I have here), a tee or even a tank and it makes a different look. You can also add scarves or necklaces and totally change the look as you see fit. This item also ran a bit big on me, so make sure you take that into consideration.
Chadwicks of Boston actually made it very simple for me to build this outfit. I just used this outfit that was built for me! Just select your sizes and you are on your way. It not only saves you time, but it can also help you figure out what you want by adding items which will pair nicely together – all on one page.
I really do love the clothes I get from Chadwicks of Boston. I have yet to be disappointed with anything I’ve purchased from them. Whether you have a party to go to or need new clothes to wear to your next PTA meeting, you’ll find it at Chadwicks – at very reasonable prices!
