Mother Nature, can we pick a season and stick with it, please? With the frequent changes, I never know exactly what to wear. I need to be warm, but I don’t want to be too hot. It’s tricky. The key is finding balance. Yes, balance with your wardrobe and I think I found the perfect mix with a super cute oversized size sweater dress I was gifted from Tobi.com.
