Turning Heads Linkup -Red Sweater Dress for the Holidays


Morning friends!
I’m all cozy and warm in this thick red knit sweater dress. You know from reading the blog in the past, that I do love a great sweater dress! This rich red-blue hue caught my eye and I wanted to style it for this Holiday season.

It’s a busy week as we prepare for Thanksgiving, and start to get down the Christmas decorations. I always love decorating this time of year and I bought a few new things to add to the decor in our living room. I wanted some Christmas pillows. I am also enamored with the red truck design with the tree in the back of the pickup. It is a rustic looking image and old fashioned, which I love. Our tree is very “woodland inspired” as we started to collect woodland animal ornaments when we came across them in Asheville.

I’ve got to get on the ball with Thanksgiving, but I know we are having corn puddling ( soufle) asparagus, smoked turkey.. and a few other dishes. I need to find my side dish and plan- or I make a butternut squash soup. It is only my sister, niece, hubby and I, so I don’t need to go crazy!  I did make a yummy jambalaya the other night that went well.

My Outfit

Target strikes again! I saw this dress on-line and knowing I had parted with a few sweater dresses that were pilling and old, I was due for a new one! This rich red caught my eye and I loved the longer length and mock turtleneck. I am wearing it in an XS and even the sleeves are long enough! I loved this with the pops of red in my Zara circle bag, and love wearing gold jewelry with red as well. I’m wearing my black croc booties, but could easily style this with tall leather boots for a chic look. They also have the dress  in grey and black.

It certainly has potential as my Thanksgiving outfit! I love to be comfortable, nothing pressing on my gut – so jeans are out. This lady wears dresses on this Holiday.

    I’m such a sucker for sweater dresses. This one is SO gorgeous. And it’s even cold enough for something like that here right now.

    I love that red sweater dress!! Gorgeous, Jess. And the circle bag is adorable with it. I had to chuckle as I read some of your comments–in agreement! Lol! No jeans pressing on the tummy. Check. Decorative pillow with truck and Christmas tree. Oh, yeah. I have that one, too–and love it.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family.

    You are beautiful in red Jess! I am also smitten with the mock turtleneck of this dress. Anything for extra coziness – I am all for it! I love those Christmas pillows you bought. I need some and these are perfect! This is the first year after being on a hiatus for 4 years that I am decorating again. Wish me luck! Wishing you and your family a beautiful Thanksgiving.

    You look stunning in this dress and color. It’s a wonderful knitdress. Perfect for the “overeating” on holidays, but also chic as a work outfit or for Valentine’s day here up North in Alaska. Happy Thanksgiving.

    I’m really surprised that the dress is from Target. I expected to see Soft Surroundings or something. Fabulous find–I love the rich red, too.

    Such a beautiful sweater dress! I think I’ve been eyeing that same dress up but in black. Then I took too long to decide and now it’s sold out at my store.
