When we’re in the dead of winter, I really start to miss my ballet flats and dresses! We’re still quite a ways away from bare legs, but last week we did get lucky with some warmer temperatures. I took it as an opportunity to wear this plaid dress with tights. It’s so funny to me how 45 degrees in January feels so “warm,” especially after single-digit temperatures. 45-degrees in October and I’d be bundled up with boots and scarves, the works!
Normally trench coats don’t cut it in the winter, but layered with the flannel on this “warm” day, it felt just right. The trench was actually one of my best purchases last year. I retired the one I had had since college because it isn’t as structured. This one looks much more polished.
The ruffle collar on this dress though 😍
I have had this monogrammed tote for years. Even though I don’t go into an office anymore, it serves me well when I have meetings in the city or have to pack up a mini “desk” for a coffee shop work session. I tied this gorgeous ski printed scarf on it and it feels like a whole new bag!
After December, I put a lot of my plaid away. Anything that’s super red or feels too holiday gets stored. I couldn’t tuck this one away though! The navy and green still works throughout the winter. It has such a fun shape– it’s more of a swing dress. The bow at the waist makes it have a perfect fit. And pockets…. can’t forget the POCKETS!
