Sweater Dress c/o | Boots, old | Coat, old
Ladies, I can't even begin to tell you how long I searched for the perfect sweater dress.  Everything I came across was either too short (even on someone petite like me) or too tight.  Sweater dresses in my mind are meant to be cozy and slightly oversized - and I found just that at Universal Standard!
I'm wearing the Wheaton Sweater Dress in midnight blue, and the rich blue shade screams fall.  It pairs perfectly with tans and browns, which is why I chose these boots and floral jacket!

Luckily the length was long enough to be a dress on me.  For taller gals, just add leggings or layer over another dress!
Obviously the words sweater and cozy go together, and that is indeed the case with this dress.  The turtleneck is warm without being constricting.  The material is also very comfortable.
Did I mention that this dress leaves room for any sort of food belly? Just another reason why this is the perfect choice for Thanksgiving.

This sweater dress also comes in a black and magenta.  Universal Standard has a few other options, which I've tagged below!

I've talked about Universal Standard before (see my previous review here), but I wanted to give a quick shoutout to this amazing brand that celebrates body positivity.  The sizing goes up to a 32.  And the pieces are really great quality - I know they will last a while and still look as good as new.  Both the quality and the mission make it worth shopping at Universal Standard!

What do you think about a sweater dress for Thanksgiving? It's a top contender for me, but I do have a few other ideas as well...
