A Dress For Snow

Here is how I looked on Tuesday when all it did outside my office window was snow, snow, snow. My favorite vintage dress with a cozy cardigan and my Doc Marten's.
My office is very much a business-casual dress kind of place so my Doc's have to go once I get to work which is kind of a bummer. I keep some cute navy blue velvet ballet flats at my desk though which surprisingly match most of my clothes.
You're also probably thinking that I'm nuts for wearing a sleeveless dress on a snowy, ice cold day. I am in fact, crazy and really need to re-think this whole winter wardrobe thing. Most of the day I was huddled under my scarf that I used as a blanket with my hands wrapped around some tea.

  7. Yeah, sheesh girl, put a long-sleeved t-shirt underneath! (I say this as someone who also wore a sleeveless dress and cardigan this week, and regretted it). :)

  8. A really long time ago (or last winter) you commented about your mom always telling you to put a white turtleneck under things and now I do that all the time with my vintage sleeveless dresses and your mom is my hero.

  9. Shut up, this dress is so unique! Where on earth did you acquire it? Was it thrifted or Etsyed...? Always love to hear treasure hunting stories.

  10. It was my grandma's! She bought it when she first started working and then it went in a box for a long time and then my mom wore it when she was into vintage in the 80's and 90's. Then I acquired it (I stole it from her closet) for my high school graduation back in 2005 and its been mine ever since. :)

  12. I LOVE the exaggerated collar on this dress! I also have the bad habit of dressing inappropriately for the weather. How do we fix this disease?
