now that temp’s are dropping (this weekend – not today it’s gorgeous!) it’s time to start getting creative and a sweater dress is my favorite way. layering is fun but when you are walking outside in the cold it gets hot and by the time you reach somewhere i am completely overheated. that’s why i love loose chunky knits that are breathable and my all time favorite – sleeveless sweater dresses. it’s one easy piece and comfortable.

depending on the shape you can always add a belt to create some shape and i paired this one with my new boots and plaid coat for the Kendra Scott event at the 900 shops. it was the perfect combination of casual but put together and i’m sure this dress will be on repeat all winter.

i had such a blast hosting the event a few weeks ago but had to take some time this weekend to regroup. i told trevor that all these things that should be fun have become stressful because there is just too much on my plate. i work at my dental office alone 5 days a week (most common question i get – which is a whole other topic) and try to keep this blog going. don’t get me wrong – i’m not complaining. i wouldn’t trade the opportunities and friends i’ve found for anything but it can get to be too much and i end up stressed instead of enjoying these amazing times with my friends and family.

i set aside a day this past weekend to get everything organized, get ahead on the blog, and refocus on my patients at work. i feel a bit refreshed and less chaotic during the recent days which is a amazing. what do you guys do to help? i know there will always be stresses in life and i try to take a key from my husband and stay calm and laid back (it’s so hard for me) we have a term for this in my family: ‘khanxiety’ a perpetual state of stress and anxiety and i’m working on it.

hope your tuesday is off to a great start and you are enjoying some of this gorgeous weather chicago is getting!
