Lookbook: Summer to Winter dress

5:00 AM

Another sweater over dress combo (see my last one here).  I also wore this dress during the summer.  I love taking my, what would be a summer dress and try to winterize it.  It makes having cute summer dresses worth it considering Seattle gets way more cold days than warm!  Do you know how much I love cashmere sweaters?  I want to wear them all day long and never take them off.  This one in particular I adore because it's a longer length, I actually folded it under for this look as it was a bit too long but with leggings or skinnies, it's the perfect sweater.  I can't decide if I like the shoulder pads in there (they are removable) but I went with it for this outfit.  What do you think?  Bold shoulders or no?

What I'm Wearing
Sweater: from Aritzia
Dress: Forever 21
Tights: DKNY
Shoes: Miu Miu
Necklace: J Crew
It was so cold that day you could see my breath!  And I had to prove it to you! :)

C&C California Cashmere Scoop Sweater
Doesn't this sweater look super comfy?  Really great price for this cashmere sweater at Nordstrom and love that it comes in so many colors.  Or this one from Neiman Marcus looks like mine, without the puffy shoulders.
Forever 21 Floral Dress
Totally a cute summer dress that you could do the same thing with.  Would look really cute with purple or gray tights!  Lots of cute floral dresses at Forever 21 right now, like this ruffled one!  Or you could just do a cute skirt like this little peplum skirt.  I love the bright colors.

Christian Louboutin Relika
Love the super tall mary janes.  The ones with a platform in front like this are so much easier to walk in however my Miu Mius are still fairly comfortable.  I just saw these super tall mary janes that I am really liking (I think I'd get the black/eggplant combo).  You know how I feel about cheap shoes (not for me and my picky feet) but these floral mary janes are TOO CUTE!

J.Crew Factory linked chain and pearl necklace
A little bling is good for any outfit :)  I love adding my big blingy necklace to dress up a plain sweater.

  10. @Melissa thanks! the bling is fun right? And 2nd vote for the shoulder pads!

  11. @Christina yes, funny enough as much as I love the sun, it means the temps drop that much more! But I'll take that over snow any day.

  12. @Jessica Oh, I definitely wore a coat that day! toooo cold! :)

  13. @Hillary thank you for following! <3

    I like all the votes for the shoulder pads!

  14. I think you have a small enough frame to pull of the shoulder pads, I can't say the same for me though as it makes it seem I am ready for Football season! :( So, wear'em like nobody's business! :)


  15. I love this combo! Definitely going to try it out. Sweaters also make dresses feel more comfy. :)

  23. Great styling, love the way you made it so wintery! Cashmere sweaters and cardis are the best, once they are on I feel like I've been hugged all day! ... Drooling over your shoes, but nothing new there!


  24. @House of Hemingway Thanks! I couldn't decide if my body type was suitable for the shoulder pads but they are pretty fun to wear :)

  25. @aftertherace oh good! send me a pic of your outfit I'd love to see it. and thanks!

  26. @Saba Thanks! It was one of my best buys from F21, I love the print.

  27. @kileen edginess is always good even for small girls like us right? :)

  28. @Maggie I'm SO glad you got them, they are the cutest shoes!

  29. @A-C thanks! the funny thing about those tights is that they are gray but they kind of changed to a hint of blue with the shoes.

  30. @lisa the tights were definitely needed for the cold weather :)

    on my way over to you blog now!

  31. I like the shoulder pads! I wish Hawaii got cold like that :/ I want to wear coats so badly :(

  32. I am in looove with your heels!

  33. love a good transitional dress! Thanks for sharing :)

  34. I definitely have that dress! Such a smart idea! : )


  35. Hmm I'm actually not a fan of the shoulder pads, as the rest of the outfit is so sweet and cute and perfect, the shoulder pads throw me off as a "hey, omg my shoulders are edgy but the rest is not" kind of feel, if that makes sense.

    Btw, I'm having a giveaway on my blog to win $50 from makeup & skin care retailer Apothica!

  36. Can I have your shoe collection? LOL

    You look so adorable in this outfit and love how you styled the dress!!!

  37. @MizzJ You know, I felt the exact same way! It does throw it off a bit right? oh well, next time I'll take out the shoulder pads and see how I like it.

  38. @Really Petite oh no, you can take anything but my shoe collection! :)

  39. This is a great idea! perfect use of my cute turtlenecks, as I transition to my spring clothes! Thank you!
