My winter style project is taking a brief hiatus while I'm in California (it somehow doesn't seem fair to figure out how to dress for the cold in a 62-degree climate). Today's outfit was a bit of a challenge because my suitcase got lost while I traveled across the country yesterday, so I had to improvise--a borrowed tee from my sister, borrowed tights and belt from my mom. Luckily my bag (with my camera inside!) arrived this evening, so I was able to snap a few slightly crummy indoor shots of my impromptu outfit.

Despite the limitations, I don't mind how this turned out. I love this dress for its versatility, and I wanted to swap out the belt it came with for something different. I also love the stripes as an under-layer. It feels cozy and perfect for curling up with an Elizabeth Bowen novel as I finally get to take a break! I'm excited to remix this dress a lot over this vacation--it's simple but I love the slight ruffle detail on the top, and it is light enough to layer over lots of pieces.

I can't wait to show you guys the sweet dress I got for my sister today...but you'll have to wait till Christmas...

Heck yeah! You're going to get tons of use out of that dress! Man, between you and My Style Pill, I really need to get a good jumper. It will even work in summer!

Looks great for just putting it together! That's definitely a great dress to be able to remix.

Eeek! Lost suitcases make me nutso. For a completely improvised outfit, this is just tops. But I do hope your belongings turn up soon!
