Graphic

Just when I didn't think there was any way I was going to break from my rainy day pants wearing rut, this bright fun dress from London Times arrived at my door step. I had to try it on immediately and I was so taken by it's fabulous print and comfortable fabric that I didn't want to take it off.

It just so happened that my recent Old Navy order arrived along with it, and I threw the lilac sweater over it just to experiment. Turns out, I loved the combination. With a pair of my thickest, tallest socks under my boots, I even dared to go out tightless.

I'm really looking forward to warmer spring days when I wont have to hide so much of this adorable dress under heavy winter layers.

The sweater is such a pretty shade. I like it layered over the dress. Looking forward to seeing it on it's own.

The color combination is great and those boots are fabulous! We just got more snow so I'm trying to embrace sweaters and layers and not yearn for spring.

Just from what I can see of the dress, I can already tell that is a very nice piece. The print is certainly really pretty and it looks very nice worn as a skirt. I also love the color on the sweater; great layered look! I hope you had a nice holiday, Lyddie, and Happy New Year, dear!

I love that sweater. That lavender color looks fantastic with your complexion. I need to remember that layering sweaters over dresses in an option on those chilly days.

Whoa, the lilac sweater with the dress and the necklace is SUCH an unexpected combination and it works SO well! the necklace really references the slightly geometric feel of the dress's striped and pulls the whole thing together. It's just all kinds of cool!
Hah, I might have to finally make a trip to old navy, i love the color of your sweater and the textured pattern is really pretty and soft.

Sofia Donatelli said...

Love that you used the dress as a skirt. It's beautiful. I love doing that.

Really cool! Reminds a little of Proenza Schouler with the geometric shapes. Even the necklace is a perfect match!
