Living in Florida, I have almost no proper “winter” dresses – turtlenecked or velvety or hand-knit. I wear my summer dresses all year with some simple layering over and under. Sticking to mostly neutral or dark-floral dresses makes the transition simpler.

The dark floral dress here (similar) was found on deep sale from Land’s End a few years ago. It gets a lot of warm-weather wear but I don’t put it away in November. I add toppers and jackets and scarves and boots. When it’s truly chilly – those eight days a year – I wear tights with my boots. I love wearing tights, but they mostly keep my sock drawer warm and stylish.
On the left, my over-dyed vest c/o Diane Gilman (sim). Believe it or don’t, purple goes with everything. On the right, a more sedate suede cropped jacket (thrifted, sim). And my new favorite boots by Steve Madden (retail! but on sale). They zip up the side which is really great because laces slay me. Thrifted bib necklace (sim) for a little bling.
Are you still wearing your summer dresses?
