Even though this tweed/boucle dress is most likely in the 'work wear' category, I could not resist getting it. I've gotten at least two other boucle items from SheIn (here and here) and have been really impressed. They are both still in my closet and get worn a few times a year. I layered the white dress over a plaid blouse to wear to the Cinderella musical with my daughter this past fall (here on insta).

I was hoping this dress could be worn to church, on a date, or even with leggings and riding boots for a more casual day. It did not disappoint! It's fully lined and nice and warm. A great dress for winter, for sure! It does run a little shorter than I am used to, but with an opaque pair of tights or leggings, I still felt pretty comfortable wearing it. It does run a bit smaller than normal though. I don't like to wear my clothing skin tight (I'm a mom of 2 so there are lumps and bumps that I far prefer that clothing just skims over). Based on the measurements and lack of stretch in the clothing I ordered a large instead of my typical SheIn medium. That is 2 sizes up from my normal US clothing size. It fits perfectly with a little extra room so I would say the large is about equivalent to a US 2-4. If you are wanting to add another winter dress to your closet, this is a great option!

Last week's most popular post was from Maria at Passion Fruit, Paws, and Peonies showing some inspiration on what to wear to London in the winter. I love her trousers!
