One of my New Year's Resolutions was to wear more dresses since I always feel most comfortable in a shirt, cardigan, and jeans. I like the idea of dresses, but in the summertime my legs always feel so exposed and then in the winter I feel like it's too cold to wear dresses and skirts, even with thick tights. But I really, really want to get into the habit of wearing dresses and skirts more.
When I went to see Beauty and the Beast in 3D, I wore a blue dress and thick cableknit tights (with a cardigan, coat, and boots, of course). You can see a bit of the dress detailing here. I felt so proud of myself! Especially since it was freeze-your-ass-off cold that night.
Since I want to wear more dresses, I bought two new ones. A gray and burgandy-striped sweater dress on sale at Nordstrom, and a lacey bright red dress from Forever 21.
Here are some ways that I plan on wearing these dresses...
Sweater dress with black cableknit tights and boots.
Forever 21 brown slouchy boots.
With pink and white oxford flats.
Lacey red dress with cableknit tights.
And heeled oxfords.
A more casual look for class with a blue button up and Converse.
