Print in a monochrome

Cold weather often causes me to slip into my monochromatic dressing ways, though I always try to keep plenty of visual interest with details like textured bags, glitter booties, and printed scarfs.

This semi-metallic zebra print scarf from Fraas plays well with my neutral pallet while still livening things up a bit, and of course, keeps me warm!

The fleece dress I simply had to have finally arrived, and while it's very fleecy and cozy on the inside, it does have a completely unnecessary exposed zipper in the back, which is not covered on the inside, so it's cold on your skin - a definite drawback to what is otherwise a comfortable dress.

  1. It's definitely a bummer when one little aspect of a piece of clothing is a little off. The dress still looks gorgeous on you though!

  5. Ooh love this! That sweater looks so comfy! Stupid zipper though, I hate that! Looks like we're both into monochromatic lately...I'm in all black/gray again today except tights and shoes (and my purse, but no one sees that unless I'm walking)

  6. Love the look. I have a similar dress and planned to wear mine with a black turtleneck underneath since it's cold out and I'm shopping my closet!

    I'm on the hunt for similar black booties those look very comfy.

  8. That's too bad about the zipper because the dress is really cute and sounds very comfy and cozy. And this whole outfit is pretty great - you look very edgy/cool.

  15. Such a great outfit for these colder days. I adore the dress and leather jacket over it. Also, the printed scarf looks nice.

  16. I think this may be the least colour I've ever seen in one of your outfits - and I have to admit that, surprise surprise, I'm a fan :) Cold weather is a great excuse to start getting some use out your neutral pieces... and to prove that just because you aren't wearing colour doesn't mean your outfit has to be boring, which is pretty obvious with this look. Shame about the exposed zipper, though; poor craftsmanship like that is one of my pet peeves, especially in clothes!

  17. Gorgeous Lyddiegal - I am still wilding attracted to black, white and grey!
    I was looking at a dress in this cut yesterday and just couldn't quite decide if it was too young for an almost 50 year old? What do you think?

  24. Lyddie, it i an adorable dress. I often slip into the monochrome palette too when the weather is colder. I think you have really given it some texture and life using great accessories.
    Its too bad the zipper takes away from the comfort!

  25. I love how this dress looks on you! The length is so much better on you than me. I kind of feel like it's a little short on me. And I like how the exposed zipper looks! But I guess it's been warm here and I didn't think about how the zipper would feel really cold in cooler weather! Anyway, you look super cute!

  26. I actually saw this dress on a mannequin... and you wearing it only confirms that it looks really, really good. If it were only on sale--- sigh.
