I am on a mission to style as many of my summer dresses as I can for winter! I’m a firm believer that these dresses can be worn all year long. It just takes a (cropped) cardigan, tights and sometimes a scarf!
After all, it would really be a shame to only wear this fun, comic book, swing dress in the summer! It’s my first one from Unique Vintage, but I just ordered a couple more that I can’t wait to get. They have sooooo many fun dresses and skirts. UV has been a nice replacement for me, as I just haven’t been having much luck on ModCloth lately. Does anyone else feel that way? Or is it just me?
I also really wanted to see what this dress would look like with a petticoat. When I wore it over the summer it was just too darn warm to pair with one. But now, my petticoats are adding another layer of warmth! Haha. I’m addicted to them! (If you missed my summer post featuring this dress, click here.)
And sorry, these tights and heels have been on repeat – but the last time I was home (in Wisconsin) these were the only tights and heels I had along because they’re so versatile.
Also, for my regular readers – sorry for the confusion, I’ve been in Rosario the past few weeks, but it has been too hot to do much of any type of outfit post. So, I shot a bunch of outfits when I was in Wisconsin for Thanksgiving that I’ve been sharing (except for my Star Wars, birthday outfit, that one was in Rosario). I’ll be heading back to Wisconsin tomorrow for Christmas, too! It sounds like I will be greeted with a fresh foot of snow too. Haha.
