I will never get over this 80 degree weather in January down here in San Diego. Sometimes I wish we would see some snow (or even some frost...) but I love being able to be out in nature all year long and still be able to wear a cute dress! I'm loving long flowy dresses to transition from Winter to Spring, especially when I don't feel like putting jeans on. I love the simplicity of this dress, with only a slight tightening at the bust and some pretty little crocheted details at the bottom.
I decided to step out of the box a little and add a tan harness to complete the look. The dress was just too plain to wear alone, and I couldn't find the perfect necklace, so I tried the harness and I'm loving it! The back details are so cute and the leather adds a little edge to the outfit. I pulled the look together with the perfect fringe booties (I'm a fringe fanatic, you'll come to discover) by Sam Edelman. I've also found myself obsessing over hats during the last few months. I've managed to accumulate a small collection, but I'm on the hunt for even more! I chose this long brimmed tan hat to top off my look, with a slight country feel.
I'd also like to share one of the most essential pieces in my closet...my slip!! I have found that a lot of dresses that I love are sheer or lace, which is so cute, but it can be hard to figure out what to wear underneath. I get my slips from Free People (wearing the black one here). They aren't too expensive and they are a great quality spandex. I am a bit taller so I got the larger size, which allows me to pull it up for a mini dress or pull it down longer for a maxi! I think a nice black or white slip is definitely something every girl should have in her closet! I will add a link to the slip under outfit details. Enjoy!
