Can we just talk about the weather for a second? It’s been in the 70s and 80s in Chicago and I have no idea what to wear!  It’s March, for Pete’s sake!  My summer clothes feel too exposed and my winter wear feels too stuffy.

So, I’m wearing what I consider to be one of my “winter” dresses.  It’s wool.  It’s lined.  But it’s short and it’s sleeveless.  I can throw a black cardigan on over the top if I need to.  Or I can bare my arms.  I’ve also worn it with black textured hose and a wide black belt.  So, it’s a pretty versatile dress.

You may notice I’m not wearing a necklace.  I don’t usually wear one with this dress because I don’t want it to compete with the ruffles and the zipper of the neckline.  But maybe I just don’t have the right necklace.

Would you wear a necklace with this dress?  What do you wear when it’s abnormally warm outside?

    I wouldn’t wear a necklace either. I think the ruffles look good on their own!

    I am wearing my summery dresses. It does not feel too early to me since it’s so warm. Today I am wearing that B&W J. Crew one with the red nacklace you gave me, a red belt, red flats and black tights. I would have gone sans tights but this dress is a bit too short for the office to wear without. But! I will wear it sans tights when you invite me over for a rooftop summer bbq at your new place!
