This dress is so light and springy and I knew it would be a great piece to carry over after winter, but I also wanted to make sure I could wear it now. I hate buying things ahead of time because then I'm over it by the time I actually get to wear it. I tried to pull out the darker tones of the skirt and add some touches of velvet and glitz (very holiday) to make the look heavier for winter. And I just love bows and polka dots! Luckily the weather hasn't been too bad yet but I can just see a pretty grey coat over this when temperatures really drop. When that happens, hopefully I will be somewhere warm (hopes, fingers crossed).
