Necklace: Old Navy (similar)
Even though this dress isn't technically a summer dress, it is still a dress that is short-sleeved and is slightly to short in length. I decided to use it in this series because I still have to give it some pizzazz and make it wearable for winter without freezing to death.
To be able to wear this dress in winter, I had to add some leggings. I stay relatively cold, so I almost always have to add leggings to my dresses. Plus, it is almost too short.
I added ankle boots to make it look winter-y and to keep my feet nice and toasty. Notice how long and non-stumpy my legs look. If you don't wear ankle boots the right way, then your legs may look a bit stumpy. I could have worn a pair of leggings in a different color, but I chose the black to keep it looking fluid. If you wear very similar colored leggings to your ankle boots, then it helps the eye flow all the way down your legs without the a weird looking mis-match of different colors. Of course if you aren't wearing leggings you can cuff your pants to create a break that makes you legs look longer, but that is difficult to do with leggings and a dress.
I also added a statement necklace to add color and a little bit of fun. :). Don't you just love the grey with the light pink?
