The Informality Of Autumn

One thing I do really enjoy about fall and winter styling is how you can turn some of your fanciest dresses into daywear. With enough tights, socks, cardigans, mittens, and so on even a sequin dress seems rather balanced for daytime outings. This teal dress is another example; the lace overlay is a bit more evening than a more basic cotton dress, but with just the skirt peeking out beneath all my layers it seems quite appropriate for a simple day of errands and cooking in...

You talk about your dress but I'm particularly captivated by your gloves, they remind me of Hundertwasser's style!

You mittens are adorable!

Mani said...

I have to agree, I find it so much easier to dress when it's cold! Mainly because I can layer anything and still look put together :)
