As if getting my outfit post mojo back wasn’t difficult enough, now the fam is comparing my outfit to horse blankets! I mean, what the heck am I supposed to do with THAT!? Haha. So this is a post about a knit dress, one that apparently looks like it has the texture of a rug. A dress that when I wore it late last week was okay to wear with bare legs, but is now getting a run with leggings and boots.
I mean, brrrr Queensland, what is going ON!?
Oh, winter. Right. Nevermind.
As you saw in the last knit dress post, I hit up the ASOS markdowns and picked myself up some snuggly winter goodness. I’ve been super happy with my buys. I feel like a bit of a legend for remembering to do it before the stock was all gone and there was nothing but summer as far as the eye can see.
When this one arrived I worried it might be a little short. It was advertised as a mini dress, but I’d sized up. But you know what, I’m here for it. The best part is that even though the fam think it looks like a horse blanket, it’s SO soft. There’s no roughness to it, just a tight knit to keep me cosy all winter long.
Pffft. Horse blanket my ass.
I don’t know, it kind of looks more like a car floor carpet to me…
It’s on sale here for $28.50. I mean, come on, that’s ridiculous.

I like it! But I’m glad to know I’m not the only one that cops comments like this from the family about their clothes!!!! I had a fave dress a few years ago that had a patchwork print. Hubby hated it, said it looked like rags!!!
Me too! Haha. Of course, my family are never shy about giving their 2c about an outfit. Bless their heart, I’ll still do what I want. 😉
It just looks warm and totally fashion to me! I’ve been inspired to wear my own blanket dress to work this Friday! Only where there’s confusion about yours being a horse blanket or carpet, mine looks a bit like a throw rug. But I’ll be warm so there!
Love that! We can be all cosy and snuggly together in our blanket dresses. Who doesn’t love a good throw rug, right?
