Sweatshirt Dress (and Spring) Fever

This Spring-like weather in Atlanta over the past couple of weeks have been giving me life! I haven’t really had to wear a jacket or anything. I feel like I can come out of hibernation. It has been great.

This hoodie sweatshirt dress also gives me life! I love the color. Olive is just one of those colors that never gets old because it is so versatile. (SN: It is tricky to photograph though because it tends to blend in with the trees or other surroundings.) I also love that it is a dress. Wait, before you get carried away about me saying that I love a dress, let me finish. I love that it is a dress because it is an easy outfit. You just throw it on and keep going. I am still not a huge dress person, but sometimes it just works. Geez. Calm down.

The material is not real thick either, making it a great transition piece going into Spring. I’m all about transition pieces that I can wear from one season to the next.

It also has a functioning double hoodie, which looks really cool. I would never use it, but it’s there.  The hoodie adds that extra chill factor.  That, and the fact that it has pockets!!! Oh honey, you couldn’t tell me nothing during this shoot. I don’t think I took a single shot without at least one hand in the pocket. ?

I paired this with the best cognac boots ever! These boots go for about $650 and I thrifted them last year for way less than that. If you know me, you know that it had to be WAAAAAAAAY less than that (el cheapo over here!). I don’t think they’d been worn more than once or twice at the most. There were absolutely no signs of wear except that there was a tiny scuff in the leather. The owner agreed to take an additional amount off to offset the cost of me taking it for shoe repair. I ended up paying less than $100. I was so pleased with myself. Of course, I never got the scuff removed either. Can you see the scuff? Exactly.

I look forward to wearing this dress with sneakers when it’s warmer. I think it will look so cute.

So I can’t help you with the boots since they were a lucky find, but you can shop this dress in most sizes (it also comes in red) in my closet on Poshmark. Use code “HZTPM” and you’ll get $5 off.

Have a fabulous weekend, yall!
