Sequins and Sea Breezes: The Wind You Guys... Is Necessary

The Wind You Guys... Is Necessary

1/07/2015

 
Happy Humday loves! I don't know if you watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians or not (yes, I know, judge away) but the title of my post is a quote from the intro to the first season and it's all I could think about when taking these pictures. There's a cold front moving in so it's a wee bit windy outside which is fun...when it's not blowing your hair all over the place! So with that being said, excuse my hair for the next two days! Ok, now on to the outfit!
 
 
It was Maggie from Polished Closets who first got me hooked on the window pane trend but it has definitely stuck with me since seeing her rock it. Now every piece I see I have to grab which is how I came upon this dress! It's not your typical window pane patter which is part of what I love about it but I also love that it's a sweater dress which makes it perfect for the fall/winter (at least here). I mean, does it get any better than the comfort of a cozy sweater but in dress form? I didn't think so. Ok, maybe yoga pants... but that's beside the point. I decided to break up the pattern a bit (and make it a bit more office appropriate) by throwing a cropped sweater over it, giving it the appearance of more of a skater skirt than a dress. I topped it off with my favorite heels and of course that red lip, classic thing that you like (sorry, had to slip in a Taylor Swift reference) and some layered necklaces. What do you think of the window pane print?

    I'm willing to bet your cold front is a little different than our cold front up here in Virginia lol--let's just say I wouldn't be able to be outside in a skirt...wind or no wind! lol Totally envious of your outfit, AND your weather :)
