I thrifted a lovely little number this week and felt inspired to wear it right away – the sign of a good thrift. There was just one problem – it was a cotton shirt dress. Even in Atlanta, December is not always friendly to warm weather clothes. But I was determined.
My biggest tip for wearing warm weather clothes in cold weather? Layer both over and under.
So I started with a sleeveless undershirt to keep me warm. (If it had been even colder I would’ve gone with my cream turtleneck.)
Then I put the dress on and tried out a few different leg-coverings: regular thin-ish cream leggings, cable-knit white leggings. The first seemed too summery, and the second were too white – not the warm cream tone I was going for to pair up with this delicious caramel dress. Then it hit me that my cream corduroys would be the perfect color and warmth. Et voilà:
Then I popped my big fuzzy sweater on top to make sure I was cozy. First wear of the season for this baby:
Sorry it’s a little blurry – I’m still not great at taking outfit selfies!
