Now that I've spent a month catching up on all my Outlander collection reviews, I can turn towards some of the other outfits I've photographed in the last couple of months!  Although, this post also contains another item from the Outlander collection that I picked up on clearance.

I love layering in the fall and winter because I like adding textures, colors, and prints together.  I adore my tall boots with leggings and the general vibe of autumn clothing.  One thing I had yet to try was the long sweater trend.  I bought a long, grey, hooded sweater last year to take on my UK trip.  It ended up not being ideal for that, but I did start wearing it closer to the holidays.  And I loved it!  It's one of those things I never wanted to wear because I thought it would be too frumpy on me.  I certainly didn't want to have to belt it all the time.  But long sweaters are cozy layers, so I've warmed up to them greatly.  In today's post, I'm sharing this look featuring the third long sweater I've added to my wardrobe.

I love Torrid's knit skater dresses!  I always check out their offerings of these simple, casual styles if they are in a jersey knit or spandex blend.  That usually means they don't wrinkle super easy, not as rayon does, and they are great for travel.  I was drawn to the print of this dress with a dark green background and orange, magenta, and white flowers.  I loved it so much, I also bought one of the babydoll tees in the same print.

The Dark Green Floral Studio Knit Button Skater Dress is a polyester/spandex blend.  It holds up well and doesn't get all wrinkly and disheveled-looking.  I'm wearing a size 3 and find it fits true to size.  I have no complaints about it whatsoever.  The knee-length hemline, empire waist, button details, elbow-length sleeves, and small lace trim at the neckline all get my Hailey Seal of Approval.  Unfortunately, this dress is sold out online, but these styles are my weakness.  They keep coming back in different prints and colors, so keep an eye on the website for new arrivals.

On the website, Torrid styled this dress with a chunkier cable knit pinky-beige sweater.  It sold out fast, but I also preferred a warmer tone for myself.  I found this Cable Knit Tunic Overpiece from Lane Bryant.  I love the warmer rust color of this sweater.  It's lightweight but still cozy, which means I can get more wear out of it for a larger part of the year.  I did find that it was more generously cut.  I originally purchased it in my usual 22/24 but had to return that for an 18/20.  The smaller size is still kind of oversized and the sleeves are a bit long, but it was more how I envisioned it fitting.  I ended up loving this one so much, I bought a similar one in a teal color.

Along with these two main pieces, I am wearing burgundy leggings and brown boots.  The leggings are from the brand Daily Ritual on Amazon (and only $10!!).  They have great basics in super-soft knits.  I own a long sleeve tee and three of their hoodie sweatshirts, the navy of which I took on vacation.  I typically wear a 4X in their offerings, so I sized up to a 4X in the leggings. They do have fake pockets on the back like they are supposed to also be a jegging type thing, but I would rather the pocket detail not be there.  I am a firm believer that leggings are not pants so the posterior of leggings should never be seen.  The exception is if you are working out in actual workout leggings.  I know this is an unpopular opinion and you can, of course, wear whatever you like.  I'm just saying, you won't see me in leggings outside of them being a layer or accessory unless I am working out or possibly traveling.  (And even then, I wear a long tunic so my butt and part of my thighs are covered because - leggings aren't pants.) But I digress...

The boots have already been reviewed when I wore them out in this post, so I won't go over it all again.  I'm happy I bought a half size up, and I am so glad I found these boots.  It was nice to lay my old stretched out boots to rest.  The Outlander Mackenzie coat was on super clearance when I bought it.  I think I paid $22 for it.  I bought a size 4 because I tend to lean a size up for coats.  This one has panels of knit on the underside of the sleeves, so I could have gone with my usual size 3.  It is a smidge large.  I'll probably have it altered a bit at some point, but it isn't a big issue.  Otherwise, I love the shawl collar and longer length.  Those are details I don't have in other coats I own.

I wore this outfit out to my December endocrinologist appointment where I found out the results of my latest round of cancer check-up testing.  (Hence why I'm also wearing my "I'm a Fucking Warrior" necklace for strength!) I'm still cancer-free and doing good, so Sean and I took our obligatory photo in the hallway outside of my doctor's office.  Then I found out one of my oldest friends was coming into town last-minute!  Sean and I hung out in Portland and waited for her and her husband to arrive.  I've known Orissa since the first day of fifth grade back in South Carolina.  She recently moved to Seattle with her husband, whom I had yet to meet.  We had a great time catching up over dinner, and I look forward to seeing them again in just a couple of weeks!
