Baby, it's cold outside!  But that doesn't mean you can't still wear all of your favorite summer dresses!  Today I'm going to show you how I took my Little Black Dress and made it appropriate for chilly weather.  Simply add layers!  Leggings and boots, a cardigan and scarf!  Cozy and warm. :) 

Dress: Forever 21 / Cardigan: Target / Leggings & Boots: Kohl's / Scarf: H&M

But don't get me wrong, winter can go away at any time...  I know it's only the middle of December, but I'm ready for spring already!  I miss being warm, playing outside, sunshine, not worrying about coats and hats and mittens, driving without slipping and sliding...  I can't think of anything that I like about winter.  I know, I know, there are those of you that think you want snow at Christmas, but the thing is, it doesn't just last a day, a week, or even the whole month of December...  It will be months until I see green outside.  I turn into a hermit in the winter.  And that makes me grumpy.  So if you do see me out and about, please, give me a hug!  I need it!

Okay, enough of my whining.  There IS one good thing that just happens to occur during winter.  We get to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior.  I'm going to focus on that.  Yes.  Yes, I am.  In case you don't hear from me again before Christmas, please, have a Merry Christmas.  Even when the weather is frightful, we can rejoice in knowing that we are loved beyond comprehension.

“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
    and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
Luke 2:14


  1. I'm right there with you on this WHOLE ENTIRE POST!!! ;-) Summer dresses for winter... Yes! Winter needing to go away... Yes! Celebrating the birth of Christ... Yes! ;-)

  2. Amen! :) And on a less important but also true note, I really like that you showed the transition from summer to winter layers. Have a great weekend, Autumn!

  3. I love a good outfit remix, ESPECIALLY one with a LBD :). The color of that cardigan is super pretty on you. Sorry it has been so long since I have commented, for some reason a lot of my blogs aren't showing on my feed. I hope your Christmas/New Years was wonderful! Great post!

  4. Oh man, I feel ya about winter! I'm from southern California so we don't deal with it really. But after moving to France we've lived some places that were COLD! I much prefer the spring and summer! Hope you had a Merry Christmas!!

  5. I see this outfit was a while back, but I just LOVE the grey leggings with that bright purple sweater. Lookin' good, lady! (I'm totally with you... Winter can LEAVE. Now, please.)


I love, love, love hearing from you! So what's up? :)
