Not a bad uniform

Yesterday Dotty posted about how she realized she'd created a winter uniform of a dress + cardigan + boots + scarf, and it became pretty clear that it isn't just her winter uniform, but mine, and pretty much every fashion bloggers as well!
Still not spring
Of course we all want nothing more than to wear are cute, but typically sleeveless dresses all year long, and for anyone who has no choice but to deal with cold weather, we need lots of layers.
Still not spring
And you know, it is still cold. (Just slightly less.)

great scarf! really "springs" up the uniform. i love the boots too, such a great color!

Not a bad uniform, indeed. It's also great for moving on from the Winter to Spring like you did here.

I only started embracing that ensemble this year. I didn't think I'd be able to survive a Minnesota winter with a dress and tights combo but I did this year! Woohoo!

If I could wear a uniform like this every day, then count me in! This is a wonderful outfit...not uniform at all...love the scarf!

Jessica said...

I'm dying for the warmer days where my uniform can transition to shorts and tank tops! Only a few more months ....

indie.electronic.alternative. said...

yup: it's blogger dress code :) our first warm day here and i spent the entire thing working inside. for shame! love the purple dress but the big earrings are my favorite part of your outfit! so cute!

Jess said...

Love love love this look! You look so beautiful and that scarf is perfect for spring!

Louise said...

Every time I see your Lucky bag, I want to eat it. YUM.

Rebecca said...

That could be my uniform too, but I don't wear scarves that often. If it works, wear it!

Terri said...

The color and drape of the dress are really lovely...so it's sleeveless? Hope is that thing with feathers.

Yeri said...

Ummm HELLO! Love everything about this. Love the colors, the floral scarf...and most importantly I want that purse! Does it come in black?

Gracey said...

Yes, this is totally my uniform! I love the colors in this outfit - the purple and cognac are fabulous.

kris said...

You look beautiful. I'm working hard not to have a uniform. I want to experience fashion to the fullest and enjoy the process. You've been inspiring me along the way, and I thank you for that!

shealennon said...

I know what you mean! Except my uniform was skinny jeans instead of a dress--otherwise the same! But there are so many pretty cardigans and scarves out there that it never seems to get old!

Julia said...

Oh my, that scarf is such a beautiful color and it's so vibrant and cheerful! And you are looking extra gorgeous today, my dear. It's true -- last year and for years before that, the dress + tights + boots combo was a favorite, but this winter in Minnesota convinced me that it's TOO cold here for that, and I had to do a lot of boring leggings and flannels and sweaters and puff coats and scarves and hats and...oh, you get the idea :)

Like a crazy person I actually wore a sleeveless dress on Sunday. I just got tired of sweaters, and I totally can't wait until boots become an option and not just a necessity :P I love the purple on purple (that is purple right, I'm a little bit purple/brown colorblind... or is one of those sort of mahogany? gah).

dotty said...

way to rock the uniform! i have very few long-sleeve dresses (maybe because i keep buying sleeveless ones!) so layering up allows me to wear them more. anyway, your printed scarf is absolutely gorgeous here and it makes the color palette so sophisticated!

Hazel☺ said...

love how you incorporated the scarf in your outfit ;)

Layering is so important I couldn't survive winter without it. Lovely outfit your wearing my favorite color and the scarf is a perfect spring addition! :)

Frances Joy said...

Not bad at all. I love the color combo here - that scarf is such a perfect accent.

Emily Saltzberg said...

You're right! lol I can't wait to not have to layer again. I do like this combination though, especially the pink and white scarf with the purple :)
