Mini Dress for Winter

I wore this mini dress in the summer with bare legs and sandals. Well, the grass is green in Seattle but it’s much too cold for bare legs now. So I added tights and booties and swapped out the turquoise belt for a neutral gunmetal.

Dress: Purdy Girl
Tights: Roots Canada
Shoes: Old Navy
Belt: Marshall’s
Earrings: Gifted

The dress is a light color and fabric so I worried about the sweater tights and faux suede booties being too heavy, but because of the bits of black and navy in the pattern, it works.

It’s not in these pictures, but after I threw on a fabric moto jacket, the balance was even better.

I like getting lots of use out of the pieces I buy, and I’m glad this dress works for all seasons. Next time I wear it, I’ll play with color more. Maybe hot pink tights! Until then, I’ll have fun with things just the way they are.

  1. I love dresses that can be worn all through the seasons. Yours will look great with hot pink tights too. I agree, a jacket or cardigan added (especially if the dress is sleeveless) takes it from summer to winter. Worn with boots in winter, sandals in summer changes the look completely and makes it weather appropriate.

    I just did a post of my summer-to-winter dress and I have more to show this winter.

    Love your style! ❀

  2. Great look as always. I like the addition of the gunmetal belt. That is one of my favorite colours. Once again these are such fun pictures. Your fun poses, the pop of colour from the yellow chair and I’m not sure I’ve ever seen an all black watering can. Love it.

    Looking good.

    • Thank you! I like gunmetal too. And of course I love color. I try to find pops of it here and there. The chairs add that for sure πŸ™‚ Funny that the watering can is so drab πŸ˜› It was the only one available at Home Depot, er, I mean I bought it for its subtle elegance!

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
