If you're like me, you have quite a few summer dresses and tops, and how much does it suck only getting to wear them a few times during the year because, summer over here in the Uk, feels like it only lasts a few weeks.
When the weather turns chillier I love to start layering my outfits. When I buy a new piece of clothing, I like to make sure its something that I can wear over and over again, time after time. Dressing down fancy outfits is the best, it means you can wear one piece two ways, super glam or relaxed- glam. Satin slip dress in autumn you may ask ?? Yes. You heard it right hun. When I first saw this slip, I had to have it. I originally bought for my best friends engagement party ( speaking of special occasions ... warehouse do some amazing occasion dresses if you have any exciting plans lined up), however, I didn't end up wearing it. It's such simple and classy dress that I just couldn't bare to return it, so naturally, I decided to keep it and hang it up in my wardrobe for a rainy day.
Watching my dress gather dust in my wardrobe, just hanging there was killing me, I was itching for an excuse to wear it, however, the only thing that was stopping me was the weather. It's way too chilly to be flaunting spaghetti straps and bare arms right now. Anyway, I just recently bought this really lovely oversized knit cardigan and thought the two go together pretty well if I do say so myself. I love the relaxed combination of a midi slip dress and a boyfriend cardigan as it’s not only super comfy and warm but stylish at the same time. And there is another big benefit: my summer dress doesn’t need to hibernate in my wardrobe.

I love the fact that with this slip dress you can easily transition it from day to night. The dress itself is quite understated allowing you to add a few accessories, but I also love the asymmetrical hem, it adds that little something.
I'll admit it though, I'm really not a fan of cardigans ( but I'll make an exception for this one) when I think of myself wearing a cardigan I feel like a miniature granny, however, I think this knit might've changed my mind a little.*This is a sponsored post, however, all thoughts and opinions are mines.
