Welcome to Wednesday! I hope you all are enjoying this Christmas holiday season and not getting too stressed out. I sure am enjoying things this year.
I have shared sweater dresses before and plenty of boots, but this is a little updated take on some of my sweater dress outfits, one that you’ve seen before. Now that I have brown boots, black boots, and gray/taupe suede boots, it’s fun to mix up outfits and make them feel new.
This is a sweater dress you haven’t seen before. I think I got it at Ross a couple years ago and I like the color and stripes.
It’s fitted and looks nice with black tights and black heeled boots, so I got out the heels for this outfit. These boots I have had a few years and they have heels, but they aren’t too high. The brand is BOC, Born Concept.
I added a few pieces of my gold jewelry and was ready for a Christmas party.
It was a little chilly out, so I went with my black and white houndstooth cape to keep the chill off.

You’ve all seen this one before, but I love the gray/white houndstooth tunic dress (from C Wonder, out of business now) with gray tights and my gray/taupe boots. Boots are no longer available.
A scarf finishes it off.
And for taking the chill off, this ruffled long sweater is perfect. You’ve seen this before too, it’s a piece I got at the Atlanta Mart earlier this year in the sample sales.
If you’re still looking for some gift ideas, I’m still loving my Jord watch, which goes with so many things.
Here are some nice jewelry pieces that I thought would be great gift ideas for those women in your life:
Where did you find the houndstooth dress? Love it!
Mary, it came from C Wonder last year, a store now out of business.
Nothing better than boots and tights this time of year! I love these outfits and would love to find some boots with a little heel like yours. Off to look for some. 😉
Thank you, Stacey! I’m sure you can find a lower heel. I can’t do really high anymore.

Rhoda: if Atlanta is as warm as B’ham has been these last ten days (and on into Christmas) you may need to forget modeling sweaters. I ran my air conditioning this past weekend. Forecast shows 70 degrees on Christmas Day. Good Grief. 🙂
Hey, Becky, I hear ya! If not for cooler nights I couldn’t wear these outfits. It’s crazy how warm it is now!
This is my favorite fashion post & you look WOW! All of your exercising & healthy eating show in these beautiful dresses.

Cute outfits on you!
I would leave the cape and ruffled sweater off and go with a short jacket or sweater. The bigger fluffy full coverings add weight and too much volume with all that jewelry.
Those are great ideas, esp for fall. But it’s wintertime now. Here in Seattle, it’s 46 and rainy and that makes those full coverings look downright delicious. Being taller and slim also makes that look work, imho.
Those outfits are all wonderful. Usually I have a favorite.
You look fantastic! That second one is my favorite on you. The color is great and you look so young!!!

Very pretty combinations! I love the houndstooth cape!

Looking good, Rhoda. Merry Christmas!
You look fabulous in these dresses Rhoda! My fave is the houndstooth dress, it’s smashing on you!! You’re the hit of every holiday party you go to I’m certain!!
I hope you and your lovely family have a wonderful Christmas and will celebrate a very blessed New Year!!
You look great in all of these outfits, but I especially love the houndstooth dress and the scarf – just lovely! Hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

I’m so horrible at mixing and matching pieces, that I wish I could hire a personal shopper to do it for me. I love your choices, and they look beautiful on you! 🙂
Please show or tell how you tied your scarf! Love the outfits!
