So, yes, I've always loved dresses and they do make up about 90% of my wardrobe but one awesome thing about them is that if you use a little creativity and change around your accessories, you really can wear them all year long ! I had a little blue cocktail dress that I never got a chance to wear this summer but look how I styled it this week when temperatures were in the 40's !! And this striped dress could be worn alone or made into a fall , spring , or even winter outfit with sweaters, scarves, and maybe the addition of a tall boot.
I found a beautiful bright plaid scarf recently at Target. I loved it because it had pink , purple , yellow , and orange shades and was so incredibly soft. When I went to hang it on my scarf rack in my closet I noticed a dress I hadn't worn in over a year was the exact same shade of the pink in the scarf and I realized the scarf would allow me to wear the dress and not freeze ( I do not like to be cold. At all. ) I was super warm all day even in the morning when we had an unexpected 26 degree day in October !!!
This last dress is actually one of my favorites because it has a strong black and white design but it is different from the typical dots and stripes seen so often. I just added a sequin vest to jazz it up a bit because it was kind of warm for October that day , but I will add warmer accessories on colder days , of course !
