The Perfect Winter Knit Dress (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup)

A knit dress is an essential part of my autumn-winter capsule. It's just one of those brilliant little pieces that you can chuck on in a flash, pick up a jacket and boots and head out the door. But because it's a dress you automatically look like you made an effort, when really it was a simple no-brainer. As you all know, simple but effective dressing formulas are my groove and so this Madewell dress fills the requirements perfectly. I've already worn it lots, each time i've changed the boots, bag and jacket (although with the blank NY vegan jacket they seem to be best buddies and totally made for each other!)

Well it's friday folks.. And I don't know about you but my little brain is well and truly fried.  I'm currently writing a post for next week thats a little more hard hitting and something very close to my heart ( i do hope you'll come back for a read), but to say i'm drained would be an understatement.
So i shall hand the metaphorical mic over to you, I can't wait to see what outfits you all linmk up with this week. SO many caught my eye last week... You my friends are GOREGOUS!

Happy weekend to all of you!
