One of the best ways to continue to use your summer dresses during colder months is simply adding some layers, like a jacket, sweater, undershirt, and/or tights. I do this often as a lot of my dresses can transition easily across seasons, but I don’t want to freeze, of course.

I typically wear this jacket for casual outfits, but I thought it would be a fun combination with this striped fit & flare dress. As it was crazy cold and half snowing this past weekend (booo!) tights were a must. I actually really look forward to wearing them (I have tons of styles and patterns!) because it’s an added component to any look and can really diversify your day-to-day style. Here’s my tights tip: I always cut half of the top band off (not the full band or they will rip!) to keep them from suctioning my stomach too much, which can be unflattering (and I buy them 1-2 sizes big!).

I hope you’re having a great day! Thanks for reading,

Una buena manera de seguir utilizando los vestidos del verano durante los meses fríos es añadir capas, como chaquetas, camisas, o medias. Así se puede llevar los vestidos entre todas las estaciones sin tener frío (y se puede probar varios estilos de sus looks!). 

Típicamente combino esta chaqueta con ropa informal, pero hoy tenía ganas de llevarlo al trabajo con un vestido. Ya que hacía frío y nevaba un poco esta semana pasada, tuve que ponerme unas medias y una camisa. De hecho, me gusta utilizar medias (tengo muchos colores y estampados) porque es otro accesorio y tiene la capacidad de cambiar un look completamente. Les comparto mis consejos de llevar medias y estar cómoda: Primero, siempre las compro de uno o dos tamaños más grande que el mío. También, corto el medio de la cintura de las medias (no todo, o se romperán) para que no me aprieten demasiado sobre el estómago. 

¡Espero estén bien… gracias por leer!

  2. Love that cargo jacket paired with the dress, such a cute look.
    And you’re the tights-pro! I always would roll the top band down because I hated it suctioning me in! I serisouly need to get those exact ones, because mine ALWAYS rip. They rarely make it to the second wear!
