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.)

  2. 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!

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

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

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

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

  12. 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!

  13. 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!

  14. 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 :)

  16. 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).

  17. 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!
