When you want to wear your Summer dress in Winter

I’ve made a lot of weather compromises this Winter – which has forced me to wear the same boots and pants to combat the rain & cold. Doesn’t make for great outfit photos to share. The other day, I said to myself “THAT’S ENOUGH!” I decided to wear this dress I’ve had hanging for way too long, that’s for warmer weather (both in fabric and color) and figure out how to wear it for winter.

This Sonia Rykiel dress is a beautiful silky goodness that was too gorgeous to pass up at the thrift store (YES! This is indeed a thrift store find.) The bright colors reminded me too much of my dream Marc Jacobs dress, and I loved how the cotton fabric at the bottom contrasted the silk fabric from the top. I can already see myself wearing this dress in August with a bright hat, except it’s January and freezing for us here. So the easiest fix was to wear this dress with my black fleece lined tights and a turtleneck for maximum warmth.
