What I Wore: Karina Dress Peeking Out

My Karina “Audrey” dress is summery, but I want to wear it all year. So today I topped it with my CAbi jacket/dress/duster and let Audrey just peek out the bottom.

I didn’t realize till I saw this picture that I went heavy on the browns for my accents. I’m wearing my fab Cydwoq booties with their almost-spiderweb design, a classic brown belt, wooden bangle and amber pendant (the last three thrifted from the Humane Society Thrift).

In a black-and-white mood, with Marilyn over my shoulder and Audrey
on my dress.

  1. What a cute way to get continued wear out of your favorite summery dress
    Love what you came up with

  2. Excellent layering. I am all sorts of obsessed with your boots, Patti. I'm trolling ebay with fingers crossed. Those are so goshdarned cool. YOU are so goshdarned cool.

  3. Love the Cabi duster. I think I might manage this look! I have a pair of booties that are just gorgeous, but I've never gotten up my nerve to try them with a skirt or dress. Cool idea. Maybe I'll get bold and try it!

  4. That's a great way to extend the wear of a summer dress, Patti, and the little peek of stripiness is lovely! Such cool ankle boots too. xxxx

  5. I love the blazer over the dress and how the stripes are just revealed beneath the black – very chic!

  6. To wear a dress over a dress is so very special yours. I like the idea so much that I copied you from time to time and wore a colorful dress under my black shirt-dress. This time I love it again and particularly because of the pattern mix. Your shoes are fantastic! 

  7. I love the long line belted cardi and those incredible boots, you look fabulous! x

  8. Great look on you Patti
    Happy. Valentine
    Those boots are so pretty i love the lace look of it

  9. Wow I love this look! The dress is lovely and the jacket on top is such a fantastic cover and versatile piece. Really like the brown accents of your accessories too. Those booties really flatter your slim legs and are a great style.

  10. Thanks, Patti!  I am excited to test the L'Oreal product!  This is a great dress for our climates because you can do so much fun styling and use it all year long!  Excellent look for you!  Have a Happy Valentine's Day!
