The best outfits are the ones you don’t originally plan for. This floral dress and this frilly cardigan just happened to be hanging next to each other in the closet…otherwise I’m not so sure I would’ve thought to pair them together.

This cardigan is one that I have had since high school…and I have managed to break it out every winter since I bought it (eons ago). However, I always paired it with skinny jeans and boots..I had never thought to try it with a dress.. until this weekend. I was pleasantly surprised that these two pieces complemented each other, especially since it was so darn cold this weekend and a long cardigan was a great addition to keep me from freezing!

And let’s face it, any chance I get to break out a Luck Be a Lady dress (especially this floral one)..I’m going to take it. I also have wanted to pair this dress with my Machi Footwear heels, but had meant to do that in the summer months.. when tights weren’t a necessity. I had been a bit nervous to pair these with tights or socks, because they are a tight fit…and I didn’t know how I would like the ankle strap with tights or socks. But I think it all worked out just fine!

These heels are super cute.. and I don’t wear them nearly enough. I love all the details on them, from the gold accents to the tassels. However, I have to admit, I have a heck of a time walking in them. They are fantastic sitting heels. Haha. I think it’s because these run a bit smaller, and I probably should’ve sized up in this particular style. I’m usually a 7 1/2 but I’m pretty sure an 8 – 8 1/2 would’ve been a better fit in this style. So, if you do decide to order them, definitely size up (at least a half size)!

Has anyone else paired an outfit together.. based on what was hanging next to each other in the closet? How did it work out for you? Let me know in the comments!

    Love this! These photos and the outfit are perfection! I just got my first ‘Luck Be a Lady Dress’ and I almost took a selfie and sent it to you because your advice on them was correct: the armholes are kind of big! Workable, but you were definitely spot on! And you’re so right…the best outfits are often spur of the moment ones! XO

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Aw thank you so much, Lauren! And I can’t wait to see your Luck Be a Lady dress! Here I thought it might just be my body shape…but it must just be the way the armholes are cut on them. If it wasn’t for the gaping armholes, these dresses would seriously be perfect! They are great in the winter with a cardigan, though (so, I don’t have to worry about how I’m going to hide my bra, haha).

  3. I love the print on the dress.

      Thank you so much, Jessica! 🙂

  4. This outfit is perfect! I can’t believe you just paired the cardi with the dress because they were next to each other! They look like they were made for each other. And with the over knee socks – just bloody perfect! Also I must say the heels are really pretty. I have a couple of heels too that I call my sitting down heels. hahaha.
    Gorgeous. And I just love your hair like this!
    Much love,

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Haha! Everyone needs some good sitting down heels! And thank you so much, Mona! You are far too kind! 🙂

  5. PrettyKathi says:

    I love this outfit! Your dress is so pretty, your cardigan is a perfect match and yours shoes are gorgeous. The socks are such a cute touch.

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Aw thank you so much, Kathi! You are always so sweet! 🙂

  6. AmandaBrezovsky says:

    This is such a darling outfit! What a happy accident! You look so beautiful and like a snow princess. The lighting is just gorgeous too. These heels are to die for! Seriously, I love every detail about them.


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you so much, Amanda! Haha, the snow makes for some fun photos…but boy did I freeze my butt off! And thank you…these heels are so cute and come in a few different colors too! (Just be sure to size up if you get a pair of your own.) 🙂

  7. Everything about this outfit is just adorable! I love the ruffled sweater, the floral dress, the knee high socks, the heels…..ah!!!!


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Oh gosh, thank you so much! I’m glad this outfit put itself together, haha.

  8. Beautiful outfit! I love that it was just hanging next to each other. I don’t think I’ve had that happen, but now I’ll have to look at my closet a bit differently. And I love those shoes with the socks. That is such an amazing look!

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Aw. Thank you so much, Lili! It was rather lucky… 🙂 I can’t say that happens in my closet often!

    This outfit is so cute!! I love how you paired he cardigan and dress. And those shoes… wowow! Beautiful!
    I also really love these photos 🙂 Since my move I’ve been searching for some quiet areas to take photos and it’s been proving to be more difficult than I thought it would be.

      Thank you so much, Lee! 🙂 And thank you for the photo compliments! My husband helped me with these (it was waaayyy too cold to dink around with my tripod and self-timer). I hope you find a quite place to take photos soon! It took me a bit to find one when I moved to Princeton. I actually ended up using a dead end road the most, until I found a tucked away park.
