THE DRESS FOR WINTER

Details: c/o Banana Republic Fit-and-Flare Dress, here | Nude patent leather pumps, similar here |

Like many, I find it difficult to wear dresses in the winter months. I mean, not only am I as pale a tube of toothpaste, but so many dresses are sleeveless and I don’t really like to layer a cardigan on many dresses, it can look a bit frumpy. Needless to say, I don’t invest in winter dresses unless it makes sense and this baby blue dress is worth the investment. Not only is it super comfortable, the fit is sophisticated and classy AND it has sleeves. When I put this on, I thought: “If Kate Middleton were to come to the U.S. and had to find a last minute dress, this one would be on the top of her list.” It’s elegant and modest with a certain flair. I paired it with my favorite nude pumps, but it could look just as perfect with a colorful or metallic pump or even a sheer pair of tights to protect your legs from the cold. When I’m not cuddled in oversized knits, you’ll find me wearing this perfect-for-winter dress.

JACKIE O CALLED, SHE WANTS HER DRESS BACK

Despite the fact that it has been unseasonably warm, I still haven’t worn enough dresses. It’s not for a lack of dresses, but for little to no effort on my part. I’ve said this before, tights require way too much work, especially on a chilly morning in January. If I’m going to wear a dress to work, it has to be comfortable. This black and gray mock neck dress makes me feel like Jackie O. It’s so classy and elegant. I especially love the mock neck, mostly because I become Casper in the winter and I don’t like my pale chest to blind anyone. I also really like the front pockets; they’re so unique and make this dress unlike any other I own.

Now wish me luck on motivating myself to wear more dresses to work!
