Prêt-à-Porter: Winterizing

02/03/2011 § 5 Comments

Cherie, spring is taking its sweet time to appear, is it not?  No matter, I have decided that I can’t wait for warmer climes to wear my lightweight dresses.  I officially reject the concept of season-appropriate clothing in an effort to combat my low-grade seasonal depression.  However, in order to avoid freezing to death, I’ll need to winterize.  Here, I’ve paired one of my favorite summer dresses with a wool cowl neck sweater, scarf and wool tights.

Have a few dresses you miss dearly?  There’s no reason to wait.  Bring them out and warm up with a few cozy layers.

Peek of an elbow patch.  I love grandpa sweaters.

Je porte: Rugby Ralph Lauren sweater, H&M dress and belt, Banana Republic tights, Common Projects shoes

    Your pictures are stunning, I want to see more on the blog for some outfit inspiration! I would like nothing more than to take your advice to heart but we suffered another bitterly 8 degree day here. I know you feel my pain. There seems to be promise of a warmer day this weekend, fingers crossed!

    LOVE the dress! You look amazing in it (as always!) H&M though? No, really? Wow I need to do more shopping with you, madam!

    Merci beaucoup, everyone, really! So nice of you to say. After yesterday’s milder temps I am becoming a bit more optimistic that spring is on it’s (slow) way! And yes, the dress is an H&M find. H&M has quite a few nice things, buried beneath tons of not-so-nice things. You’ve got to go in there prepared for a treasure hunt.
