Just Add a Sweater

Hey y'all! Has anyone else been counting down to the weekend since last weekend?! It's been a fun week but a busy week and I just really need time to decompress. To just do nothing. I'm incredibly thankful for a couple weeks off  for the holidays, to relax and just enjoy time with my family. Honestly, that might be my most favorite gift this season. Rest. 

Today, I'm sharing this outfit that I put together when I was running really late for church recently. My kids are never late to school. I made it to work on time everyday. But for some reason, Sunday mornings are a major struggled at the Soto house. We are almost late for church every single week! The task of getting everyone ready and to church by 9am is nearly impossible. I thought when my kids got older, we would be faster but nope. Everyone needs mama to pick out an outfit for them and fix their hair (well, Josh doesn't need help with his hair but he does need help with his outfit). I'm usually the last one ready and I'm running out of the door at 8:56am. Thankfully, we live just two minutes from our church... otherwise we would never make it to the early service.

I say all of that to say, I literally threw this outfit on at 8:50am and just was hoped it worked. This is when having a closet filled with neutrals works majorly in my favor. When I purchased this dress, it was definitely a splurge for me but I was determined to get a lot of wear out of it and make it work throughout the year. Throwing a cozy sweater on top and adding ankle boots warmed up the dress instantly. I also added a denim jacket on top but ditched it later when it warmed up. Adding a sweater on top of your favorite spring/summer dresses helps to extend the wear of the items in your closet. I also recently wore a maxi skirt from the spring with a sweater and boots to get more use out of it as well! Just add a sweater. I feel so much  better about investing in pieces like this dress or my skirt when I get wear them in multiple seasons! Clothes aren't meant to be disposable; get creative!
