For some odd reason, whenever the cold sets in, I all of a sudden want to wear all my summer dresses and shoes. After I don them, of course, I realize that it's freezing, so I slap on some tights and socks to remedy the situation. It's a thrifty practice, I suppose, but one that begs the attention of curious neighbors, grocery shoppers, and library patrons.

I imagine each one of them thinking, Now why in the heck is that girl wearing a skirt and summer wedges when it's so darn cold?

I mentally retort, Because I'm crazy, lady, and I'm showing off my crazy in your face.

Speaking of faces, I created a facebook page for my blog! To be honest, my whole world has gotten really topsy turvy ever since I started blogging, and I'm really meticulous about keeping categories so as to have some semblance of organization in my life. I'd love to connect with all of you awesome bloggers, so let's be FB friends!

Do you wear summer clothing during colder weather?

  1. Totally jealous of your belt. Again. I am sorely lacking in belts apparently because I want all of yours. That dress is very cute, too!

    I also wear a lot of my summer stuff in the winter (or am I wearing my winter stuff in the summer? I'm not sure now) Unless it's like... snow boots, I don't relegate clothing to one specific season.

  4. Love the contrast here! Wearing summer stuff in cooler weather is awesome. (Layering for the win!)

    I don't know why but your eyes look really sad to me in these pictures, you're such a doll!

  5. love this dress's print. so pretty! and, I think the print/colors in this dress make it very fall appropriate. in fact, i didn't even think it was a summer's dress!

  6. You look so pretty with your hair pulled back like that! And I love the dress - I think it's perfect for transitioning into fall.

    On a completely unrelated note, I finally bought myself some gel eyeliner last night and I LOVE it! I should've followed your advice on that sooner.

  8. Right now I'm wearing winter clothes in hot weather lol :) We're opposites! And I LOVE your knee high's...I must try to copy your awesomeness.

  9. i totally get this. i guess sometimes i dress by what ideas or thoughts i have in my head at that moment...not taking the weather into consideration, and it always seems that i'm dressing up really warm (sweaters, tights, boots) when it's hot out!

  10. HA! I live in Ireland so that basically means it's always winter except for a few odd days where we get caught off guard, boil to death in 25 degrees Celsius and burn until we look like lobsters =]
    So, yeah... I wear summer clothes in winter =]

    I am also a fan of the socks and tights situation though.

    I tend to wear little summer dresses with tights and boots =]

  15. I wear almost anything. I think I've said this in your blog before, but where I am it's always sunny. Except for the occasional rainfall.

    I really stopped caring on what others would think on what I wear. I just stand tall and walk with my head held high. Haha! They can stare all they want.

  18. It is too cold in Chicago to wear anything summer in our winter! You'd probably die of frost bite..lol! I like this dress and how you paired it with the knee high socks! The belt looks awesome as well! So sorry to hear you can't borrow anything from your mom's closet, what about jewelry or scarves? Thank you for stopping by, I am following your blog and look forward to reading your next post!

  22. Yep. And I was just thinking about the whole wearing-summer-clothing-during-colder-weather thing today (and one very spring-y/summer-y dress in particular). I realllyyyy love this outfit on you, Laura! Everything is perfect - the color palette, the layers. You look fantastic.

    I hope you're having a good weekend.

  34. I love wearing dresses and skirts in winter. I feel the same way -- I always want to wear all of my summer stuff when it is too cold to wear it because the thought of NOT wearing it anymore saddens me.

  35. I have been toying around with this look since I feel like I just found out how to wear my summer dresses... but I don't know about the knee highs and socks with wedges. Not sure if I can pull it off.

    You look great, so perhaps I'll have to give it a go.
