As my fellow petites can probably relate, it can be incredibly difficult to find a sweater dress that doesn’t completely overwhelm my frame. Sweaterdresses that you see online are usually worn by models who are around 5’10. Meaning, what hits them at mid-thigh, probably hits me at mid-calf. Not a great look. I eventually gave up trying to find a true sweaterdress and started widening my search for a longer length sweater that might work as a dress. Even this turned out to be quite the challenge, but I finally came across a sweater that would allow me to do, what is called, “lampshading”.
I love this pairing of a cape blazer and a pencil skirt. And while some women hate the idea of black and navy blue together, I certainly see no problem with it.

One more shoe review post before I get back into the EOTD posts. This one is another Sam Edelman shoe that I fell in love with. I usually cannot wear flats or pumps unless there is some sort of strap holding my feet in due to my super narrow heels, but these are great, and I love the leopard pattern.
