WIW - Dress weather

I never wear dresses until fall and winter, and despite it being 90 the other day, today the high is only going to be 60 (about time!!!).  This is my typical fall & winter uniform. Some dress, some blazer + jacket, tights + boots.  Going to try to mix it up a little this year with some ankle boots.

Dress: Ann Taylor
Jacket: J Crew
Boots: Frye Paige Tall

Excuse my blur, I was trying to direct my son...he's about to be fired for a real tripod :).

    Love the dress on you!

    Super duper. I like the juxtaposition of the utility jacket over the frock. 

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    Wow. You and I would make a great pair. I almost never wear dresses in the winter but wear them regularly during the summer! 

    I really like this particular one on you. It's a gorgeous rich colour and the way you've added the tougher jacket makes it fun.

    You look great! The blue looks great on you. But I can't help thinking that it would look better with a shorter jacket... This one seems to hide all your gorgeous curves.

    You look wonderful - I just love the color of this dress on you! I think it looks great with the utility jacket - I love mixing moods like that. But I would also love to see it with a shorter jacket; I think Neha makes a great point about your curves.

    You guys are onto me, I'm totally a shape hider! I tend to make everything look more "va vooom" than it needs to, so I usually throw on something to distract. My husband refers to it as "Frumping it up" LOL

    But I like this jacket, I only wore it outside, but it does cinch in at the back, and when it's buttoned it adds some nice shaping.  Next time I'll try this with one of my shorter jackets - I have two other possibles that I have for this dress.

    Looks different on the model. but I love how the sleeves balance out my curves.

    Great uniform and will be FAB with ankle boots.  Really like the brown/blue.

    Great outfit and I love the colours of the dress.

    Love the color palette -- the gold necklace really sets off the teal. The delicate feminine pattern of the dress is a nice counterbalance to the masculine elements in the utility jacket and boots. I think your son is doing a good job, I didn't detect any blur.
