Cozy Chic

The darker and chillier the mornings get, the harder it is to get out of bed.  I tend to reach for anything remotely warm and comfy to make this "starting the day transition" a little easier, but those clothing choices are never very glamourous.  It becomes a problem when you have to get ready quickly to get to work, the kids to school or both!  Let's just say if I could wear my Uggs all winter, I would be a very happy and warm mommy, who's with me?

While we may not be able to wear Ugg's everywhere (well, I guess you could...), comfy dressing just got much more chic due to the popularity of sweater dresses this season.  Sweater dresses are everywhere.  There are short dresses, long dresses, nubby dresses and colorblocked dresses.  In other words, something for everyone.

You can wear the dresses now with flats, later with boots and tights.  In the very cold weather, they can be layered over leggings and snow boots if you desire.  To simply put it, sweater dresses are the chic lady's answer to sweats.

Due to the endless amount of dresses available, I quickly chose some that first jumped out at me.  All affordable options...

Ann Taylor has a great colorblocked shift - slimming and sophisticated.
