Fall is the perfect season for wearing a sweater dress. Sweater dresses are ideal in the autumn season since they offer a little bit more warmth than flat fabrics. I originally purchased this Rebecca Minkoff sweater dress in August to bring to New York for fashion week. It was in my suitcase and I could not wait to wear it to Lincoln Center to watch the shows. Unfortunately, the weather in New York was over 90 degrees with humidity to match. This was NOT sweater dress weather. <sigh>
Alas, the sweater dress came home with me unworn. Since my return from New York, I have been staring at this sweater dress in my closet, begging to be worn! Thankfully, after a month of 80 and 90 degree weather, we had a little bit of fall weather over the weekend. This meant I was able to finally wear my new sweater dress on Sunday! Yay!
Have you ever purchased something, and then, due to the weather, not been able to wear it right away? If so, do tell!
