Great Dress for a Nasty Day

37 degrees and raining.  That's what it was when I woke up today, and it remained that way all day.  And normally cold wet weather would put me into a strict jeans, tights, socks, turtleneck plus sweater and reliable shoes kind of uniform...yeah, I'm a true wimp when it comes to any degree below 57.  But the chill gave me the chance to pull this Ambiente sweater dress (never worn,) out of my wardrobe...



  Actually, I had forgotten about this cozy little piece until I happened to be doing a little closet cleaning and the fact that it was still in the 70's the week before Christmas, well, it just wasn't on my radar.  And now I'm thrilled to have found it!  The soft wool/cashmere blend made it warm and soft, not itchy at all.  But best of all, I didn't get cold! (And after the holidays the Spanx tights helped...a lot!)


I also tried parting my hair down the center...next time I'll aim for a perfect line!

So what do you wear when the weather makes you want to stay in bed?
